Dramatic lashes have the power to take your eye makeup game to an all-new level. Well, you don’t always need falsies to up your lash game. Fuller-looking, longer lashes can be achieved by simply mastering various techniques of curling them well. Yes, you read that right!
Curling your lashes opens up your eyes and makes them appear larger. Precisely why, curling your lashes before applying mascara can make all the difference in giving your lashes that extra oomph. Here are a few sure-fire ways to curl your eyelashes...
#Method1: Eyelash curler
Though this technique is simple, using the curler can get a little intimidating, especially if you’re a newbie. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you ace your lash game. Grab your eyelash curler and get its rubber strip right up to the root of your upper eyelashes. Next, place your curler in an upright position and gently close the curler on your lashes. Squeeze the curler lightly with a pulsing grip. Turn your curler upwards slowly and hold it in place for a couple of seconds without blinking or moving your eyes. Move the curler from the roots to the tip of your lashes while pressing the curler with same pressure. And, voila!
Use a clean spoon that is thin from the sides for this method. Wash the spoon with hot water before placing it against your eyelids, right at your upper lash line. Next, press your lashes against the curve of your spoon and press your finger on your lashes. Apply mascara to set and hold the curl, and lastly comb your lashes while your mascara is still semi-wet. Doing so will perfectly curl your lashes.
#Method3: Waterproof mascara
Get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara to go ahead with this method of curling your lashes. Move the mascara wand across the roots in a zigzag motion. Hold the wand at the roots for a few seconds and slowly move towards the tips. To hold the curl and to add extra volume, go ahead and apply a second coat of mascara.
Soak a clean toothbrush in a bowl of warm water. Next, shake off excess water and press the brush into a clean towel to dry it off completely. Take the warm toothbrush and brush through your lashes very gently and hold at the tip to curl. Finish off by applying two coats of mascara to set the curl.
