If you are looking for a one-stop solution to brighten your face and make your eyes look more open – then girl, you need to get yourself a mascara and an eyelash curler ASAP.
But despite curling your lashes and then coating them mascara, there is no guarantee that your lashes will stay curled all day long. In this case, how does one keep the lashes curled and prevent them from drooping? Scroll below to find out.
Heating the eyelash curler
Even though this one is an age-old technique that may sound a little scary (but it is not, we promise), it still delivers guaranteed results. Before using your eyelash curler, heat it for a few seconds using your hairdryer. If you do not have a hairdryer handy, you can even put it in a bowl of hot water.
The slight rise in the temperature will curl your lashes more efficiently and freeze them in place, ensuring that they last all day.
Note: Before you apply the heated lash curler to your lashes, it would be wise to test the temperature with your fingers to avoid any damage.
Sounds bizarre, doesn’t it? But trust us, you will be surprised when you see how well this trick works. Before curling your lashes, apply a tiny amount of the Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly to your lashes and then go ahead and curl your lashes how you normally would. This will thoroughly hydrate your lashes and make them stay in place longer.
Use a waterproof formula
If both the above tricks seem like things you would rather not do, then this one is pretty simple and sort of a no-brainer – curl your lashes using waterproof mascara. We’ll tell you why this helps. The formula of a waterproof mascara tends to be drier than the washable one, and this is what helps to hold the curl in place for a longer period of time.
