There’s nothing more attractive than expressive eyes. And eyelashes are like the decorative curtains of the eye that makes it look more dramatic in appearance.

It’s inexpensive, compact and highly efficient in providing volume and curve to your lashes. If you have recently purchased an eyelash curler to amp up your eye makeup but know very little about the do’s and don’ts of using an eyelash curler, we are here to guide you through the process which is super convenient and time saving.

1. Pick the right eyelash curler


The two most common eyelash curler known are heated eyelash curlers and traditional eyelash curlers. Heated eyelash curler work just the way any heated styling tool works, however if you simply want to add natural curls to your eyelash, you should definitely opt for traditional eyelash curler which is simple to use and delivers natural result. Get Vega’s Premium Eyelash Curler, it comes with a half rounded curling pad and is easy to use with a smooth opening and closing action. The ergonomic design with black non slip grip provides easy grip and precise curling.

2. Make sure to clean your lashes before use

Before using an eyelash curler its imperative to remove any residue left on the eyes from last makeup. Make sure your leftover mascara is wiped off with a cotton pad as any remnant would cause the lashes to clump. Another major point to note is, leaving on mascara for too long or not wiping it off at the end of the day can cause damage to the lashes and can even lead to eye irritation. Curling with dirt on lashes may cause old mascara to build up on the eyelash curler, further leading to irritation on your eyes.

3. Curl it before putting mascara


Make sure to curl you lashes prior to applying mascara with a good mascara brush, and note that it’s not an after process. Going in the opposite direction makes the curler dirty and can also break off your lashes in the process, since the mascara makes it stiff. This is when eyelash curlers reach flak when in reality its not the curler but how we are using it.

4. Curl upward! Always!

Keep your eyes wide open and bring the tool to your upper lashes. Place your lash in between the top and padded base, stop at the point closest to the root without pinching the skin. Firstly, keep the curler upright near the roots of your lashes. Make sure the whole eyelash is inside the curler. Next clamp down gently and carefully, squeezing and taking it out after 10 seconds exact. For the second step, turn the angle of the curler slightly so that it lines up with the curve of your eyelid crease. Clamp again to get further curled lashes.

5. Take care of your lashes and curler

Make sure to use makeup remover or water to wash off any eye makeup on your curler. Remove your eye makeup with a micellar every night before going to sleep. Know that the pads on your curler can be replaced and should be replaced every 3 months for hygiene and safety. Not following these measures would result in eye infection and damaged lashes.

Eyelash curler is a very efficient tool to make your eyelash appear dreamier than ever before. All you need to do is, follow the precautions and take proper care while using it for best possible result.
