Ask any makeup artist, and they will tell you the importance of curling your eyelashes. This simple step in your makeup routine can instantly elevate your eye makeup and make it look ten times more stunning.

But if you don’t have an eyelash curler, or worse, lost the one that you had, here’s an easy trick to curl your eyelashes using a spoon. That’s right; the good old spoon can give you eyelash curler worthy lashes in a few easy steps. Scroll down for a step-by-step guide on how to curl eyelashes using a spoon.

How to curl your eyelashes using a spoon: Step-by-step guide

Step 01: Fill a glass with hot water and place a clean, medium-sized spoon in it for three minutes.

Step 02: Remove the spoon from the water and dry it with a clean cloth as a wet spoon won’t hold the curl.

Step 03: Place the inside of the spoon on your eyelid and hold it horizontally; gently press the spoon against your eyelid.

Step 04: Press the top lashes against the curve for 10 seconds. This will give it enough time to set the curls. The heat from the spoon will give your lashes a curled look.

Step 05: Check in the mirror to see if any of the lashes haven’t curled properly. The ones at the corner of the eyes usually get left out. Repeat the process, and this time focus on the ones that got left out in the first attempt.

Step 06: To add drama and make your eyelashes appear fuller, apply two coats of volumising mascara. The Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara will keep your lashes curled for a long time and take your eye makeup look several notches higher.
