Using an Eyelash Curler

Written by Charlotte Wood (last updated July 6, 2020)

Have you ever perused the makeup aisle and seen various cosmetic instruments? Tools that are supposed to aid in cosmetic application? Some of those tools are a little beyond me, and probably many of them are expendable—take it or leave it kind of deal. However, one of those funny looking tools in the makeup aisle is indispensable: the eyelash curler. You may think that you don't need it, and you may have gone all these years without ever using such a thing, but once you use it, you won't be able to go back to makeup application without it.

An eyelash curler does look kind of funny, but once you know how to use it, you won't be intimidated anymore. First of all, let's examine what an eyelash curler actually is. The name is pretty self-explanatory: an eyelash curler curls your eyelashes (surprise, surprise). When your eyelashes are curled, they look longer and fuller than they would just straight. An eyelash curler helps give an illusion to your lashes that, when combined with the right mascara, can make your lashes look lush and full.

To use an eyelash curler, you need to make sure that you get all your lashes in the curler, but not so close that you pinch your eyelid. You need to take your time inserting your lashes into the curler; make sure to get the curler as close to your lid as possible without pinching your lid (because that hurts!). Once the lashes are in the eyelash curler, squeeze the curler together four or five successive times. Squeeze tight but not for too long, because you want to keep your eyelashes in good condition. Once you curl your lashes put your mascara on soon after to preserve the curl in your lashes.

One thing you want to remember about your eyelash curler is that you need to keep the foam pads on the inside of the curler in good condition. After extended use, these foam pads will wear down, and you don't want the curler to damage your lashes; the foam pads serve as a protection for your lashes, allowing them to be curled instead of severed.

So even though an eyelash curler looks like a bizarre cosmetic tool that you think you may not need, give it a try, and you'll discover that the eyelash curler is a tool that you can't go without. You'll love the full, luscious look an eyelash curler will add to your lashes!
