How to Curl Eyelashes

Tips and Techniques for Curling Eyelashes at Home

Sometimes simply using mascara isn't enough to achieve the wide, doe-eyed look that long lashes can give you, and you will need to think about how to curl eyelashes as well.

Curling lashes is the best way to highlight your eyes, because it will help open them up. This can lead to a wider, brighter, and longer lasting eyelash look, without the need for gluing on fake eyelashes. However, for a truly show-stopping evening look, you could use a combination of several different cosmetics techniques, including cosmetics mascara, eyelash curling, and false lashes.

Ways to Get Longer Lashes

Using an eyelash curler is one of the easiest ways to get dramatically longer lashes at home, without having to mess around with any fake lashes. When you first start the process of learning how to curl lashes, it's a good idea to practice with the curler first.

The curler should be positioned on the tip lashes very gently. It can be tempting to clamp down with it, but if you simply repeat gentle movements you will encourage your eyelashes to extend more naturally, bit by bit.

Be sure to apply the eyelash mascara after you have already curled your lashes, or they could become brittle and this could lead to breakage. It's important to remember this or you might accidentally end up shortening your lashes in the long run.

Tips for Using an Eyelash Curler

When you first start figuring out how to curl eyelashes, you must think about the type of curler you want to use. There are metal, plastic, and heated eyelash curlers available, for different effects.

Be sure to always clean and disinfect your curler before use to avoid eye irritation. Replace your mascara and other eye makeup every six months to ensure that you don't get an eye infection as well.

Heating the curler can make it easier to curl your lashes. This can be achieved with a hair dryer, or by running it under hot water for a few seconds. Touch the curler to make sure it's not too hot before use

Eyelash Secrets for Beginners

After you have curled your lashes and applied mascara, there are a few more secrets to think about for how to curl eyelashes the best way. Using a lash comb can help separate each lash, remove excess mascara, and give you a more natural look. A soup spoon can also be used for the same effect.

Cleaning your lashes at night will help keep them strong and healthy. A common cause of short, stubby lashes is improper care and a buildup of eye makeup that can accumulate over time without proper cleansing.
