step by step to curl lashes properly

Step 01: Always start by cleaning your eyelashes with some micellar water or eye makeup remover before curling them. This helps get rid of any dirt, makeup residue, or natural oils that could either prevent the perfect curl or damage your lashes.

Step 02: Next, heat your eyelash curler a little bit with your hair dryer before curling your lashes. This little hack helps eyelashes to take the shape of the curl more easily, as well as keeps them curled for a longer period of time.

Step 03: While curling your lashes, press down on the lashes with a gentle force, pulse once or twice and then hold the curler slightly up towards your forehead and hold it there for a few seconds. Repeat the process a few times while moving down along the length of your lashes. This will ensure that the end result is perfectly curled lashes.
