One of the most important parts of applying your makeup is the tools you choose to use. This includes which tools you have in your makeup bag, the quality of these tools and ensuring you use them correctly for a flawless, beautiful result every time!
Whether it’s makeup brushes for the eyes, lips and face or a pencil sharpener to keep your eyeliner application precise, the right makeup tools and techniques can take your makeup looks to the next level.
Today we’re talking eyelash curlers; a must-have for every beauty-lover’s makeup bag. Curling your eyelashes is an easy and effective step in your makeup routine to give your eyelashes a lift before applying your favourite mascara and brighten your whole face.
If used incorrectly, an eyelash curler could damage your lashes or pinch your skin, so it’s important to know the proper way to use them for healthy, pretty eyelashes that stay curled all day. Read our handy step-by-step tutorial below on how to use an eyelash curler like a pro for gorgeous, fluttery eyelashes!
Prep your eyelashes
Step 1: Getting the best result possible from your eyelash curlers is all in the prep. Before curling the lashes, make sure your lash curler and eyelashes are sparkling clean. To be sure, use some of Charlotte’s Take It All Off eye makeup remover on a cotton pad to ensure the lashes and eyelash curler are clear of product and ready to use.
Step 2: Look into a mirror at a downward position or tilt your head back slightly. This is to ensure that you clamp all of your lashes, avoiding the skin so you don’t accidentally pinch your eyelid.
Step 3: Take your Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler and with the eyes open, hold it in place and position your lashes in between the two edges of the clamp, as close to the root of the lashes as you can. Ensure you have all of your lashes in the curler for a seamless result.
Curl Your Lashes
Step 4:Gently clamp your lashes in the eyelash curler and hold for 5-10 seconds. This will lock in the initial curl.
Step 5: Unclamp and re-position the eyelash curler halfway down the lashes. Clamp the lashes for a second time to lift the curl further, holding again for at least 5 seconds.
Find Your Perfect Mascara
To complete the look, apply mascara to your newly-curled eyelashes. Choose Charlotte’s Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara in Black Vinyl for thick, voluminous eyelashes or for a flutterier lash look, apply a coat of Charlotte’s Full Fat Lashes mascara!
Top tip: When applying your chosen mascara, start with the wand as close to the root of the lashes as you can for ultimate lift and curl.
In just 5 simple steps, that is how to use an eyelash curler! Curling your eyelashes essential for instant wide-eyed lashes; Charlotte recommends you always curl your lashes before any eye makeup look for the most gorgeous result!
