Curling your eyelashes is the best way to open up your eyes, look more awake, and even make your eyes look bigger! The right mascara, and even eyeshadow/liner application can help with that too–but nothing beats the impact curled lashes can make!
I have stick straight, downward turned eyelashes, so curling is an absolute must for me every day that I wear makeup.
I’ve tried a few different lash curlers over the years but absolutely nothing compares to the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. It’s iconic for a reason. It gives the lashes a perfect curl that lasts and doesn’t pinch. It also lets me get as close as possible to the base of the lashes too!
My routine involves warming the curler up with a hair dryer (for just a few seconds, it should not be hot) and holding it in place at the base of my lashes for a few seconds, and squeezing it a few times to turn the ends of the lashes upwards too.
For me, it’s the tool that I really don’t feel like I can do my makeup without!
