When I was a little kid, I was fond of curling my own youthful lashes using my mom’s eyelash curler. The eyelash curler was probably the main reason why I fell in love with makeup in the first place. My mom caught me multiple times, but it didn’t really matter since curling my lashes was so addictive at that time. I just love how it makes my young lashes look fabulous. That was also how I managed to develop the best way to curl eyelashes at such a young age.
Fast forward today, and I am now an aspiring makeup artist, working to become a pro and make a name for myself. Up until now, I still admire the effects of curling lashes, so I made it my forte. I may be an amateur, but I can confidently say that I know a thing or two about curling lashes. I believe that eyelash curling is a much-underrated part of makeup application. It really doesn’t get the credit it deserves and can sometimes be overlooked. When done right, curling can produce amazing results, bringing a much-needed length, thickness, and fullness to your lashes. Your eyes will also look larger and brighter.
The Best Way To Curl Your Eyelashes
Now I know that some of you are interested in knowing what the best ways to curl eyelashes are. Each artist has a unique way of curling lashes, but here’s my own unique technique. I use a method that promotes easy lash curling, which has been tested through the test of time and years of fruitful experience.
The very first thing you need to know is properly holding the curler. Hold it the same way you hold a pair of scissors. Also, always make sure you sanitize and clean the entire makeup tool and strip first before using.
Open your curler and place it on your upper lashes. Work to position the strip from to the very root of your lashes. Check and always make sure you place all of your eyelashes inside the curler. The curler should be in an upright position so its curve will face out instead.
Gently close the lash curler on your lashes and start squeezing with a soft grip.
Turn the curler in an upward motion so that its curve will line up with your eyelid’s crease.
Now for the secret that makes my way of curling unique. Turn the lash curler upwards so that its curve will line up with the crease of your eyelid. Doing so will give you that smooth and natural curl, instead of an ill crimp effect.
Keep squeezing the curler handle in gentle pulses and soft pressure. Hold the curler in place for a few seconds without a blink.
Slowly guide the curler from the roots of your lashes all the way to the tips. With the same amount of pressure, press and pulse over your eyelashes until you finally reach the very end.
Open the curler and start examining for the perfect curl. You can repeat the whole process if need be to define your eyelashes before you apply any makeup. Don’t forget to do the other eye, too.
