An eyelash curler is nothing short of a miracle—a bizarre-looking tool that presses down on your lashes to curl them effortlessly. Pretty cool, no? It's such an understated makeup staple. So we're not surprised when we see a TikTok hack centred around the tool. Here's what you need to know.

Yes! If it doesn't work for you the way you'd like it to, there's a way around it. Literally. This one's particularly for short or downward-turning lashes. If you've noticed that your curler does nothing for you, we've got a hack for you. And it doesn't require anything more than the tool...and a few sweeps of mascara on the lashes.

Popularised by TikToker @audboos, the hack involves turning your curler upside-down, and pressing down on your lashes like you normally would.

She explains the process further, "You want to be careful when you do this, but you want to get all of your lashes, and just work your way down the lash—you're curling them upside-down. Then, you go in, and get right up to the root and curl it upwards. It should look something like that."

She concludes by coating her lashes with a few layers of mascara. It's a pretty simple hack, no? And we have just the formula for you.
