How to use an eye lash curler?

While an eyelash curler can help you achieve flawless, sky high lashes, it can be quite an ordeal if you don’t know how to operate it properly. Instead of depriving yourself of the luxury of beautiful eyelashes, read these simple tips to get a grasp on how to safely and effectively use an eye lash curler!

Purchase an eye lash curler


There are many good quality eye lash curlers available in the market. It is preferable to purchase one with a heating system built in. However, if you’re not too keen on spending big bucks, you can simply blow dry the inner part of your curler to warm it up before use. This will enable more effective curling of your lashes.


Remember: the curler should at most be warm, not hot!

Clean Your Lashes


Ladies, make sure your eyelashes are makeup free before you go in with your curler. The practice of using your curler after applying mascara can result in the despicable clumping of your lashes. It can also render your lashes brittle, causing them to fall out!


Use a curler, but not at the cost of your precious lashes.

Use the curler


Open the eye lash curler with the help of its tongs and place your upper lashes between its two sides. Keep the curler in close proximity to the lash line without pinching the skin. That could really sting!

Press for about 10 seconds or longer depending on the amount of curl you’re aiming for, but not too harshly as this will result in fall out of lashes.


Begin at the inner corner and slowly make your way towards the outer edge till the whole lash line is complete. Repeat for the lower lash line if you wish!


Do not pull out the curler while the lashes are pressed inside which may cause you to pluck out a few strands! Instead, gently open the tongs, releasing beautifully curled lashes.

Apply Mascara


For maximum efficiency, coat these curled lashes in mascara, leaving you with voluminous, glamorous looking lashes!

With our simple guide, never shy away from acquiring beautiful lashes with an eyelash curler!
