How To Use An Eyelash Curler: A Step-By-Step Guide

They say a makeup artist is only as good as the tools they use…and an eyelash curler is an essential beauty tool! So, if you want to take your makeup look to the next level, or just give your natural lashes an instant lift, then an eyelash curler is a must-have item in your makeup bag.

Although eyelash curlers may look daunting to use (especially if it’s your first time!) – don’t worry, they are actually very easy to use. Whether you’re a pro at curling your lashes or have never used an eyelash curler in your life, this month’s Glow Goss is perfect for you as we’re going to show you the best way to curl your lashes!

Am I Using My Eyelash Curler Correctly?

To get the best results when curling your lashes, you first need to make sure you’re using your eyelash curler correctly. If you use your eyelash curler incorrectly, it can cause damage to your lashes, and, if you’ve ever had your eyelid pinched by an eyelash curler you will know it really hurts!

At Glow For It, we want to help you achieve your dream lashes, which is why we’ve created this guide. By following our steps, you can finally have lashes that hold their curl all day, whilst making sure they stay happy and healthy.

Step 1: Prepare Your Lashes

Preparation is key to anything and everything, as when you are prepared you have a solid foundation to achieve the best results. Before you even pick up your eyelash curler, make sure your lashes are clean so that they can best hold the curl. You also need to make sure your eyelash curler is completely clean so that your lashes don’t get stuck or damaged. To clean your eyelash curler, just wipe it down with your chosen makeup remover.

Step 2: Position Your Eyelash Curler Correctly

Positioning is important as this is where you could accidentally pinch your skin, or even damage your lashes. To position your eyelash curler correctly, just tilt your head back slightly when looking into your mirror, or hold you mirror at a lower angle. This will help you to get all of your lashes within the curler for clamping and should mean you don’t pinch yourself!

Step 3: Curl Your Lashes!

To create the perfect curl, gently clamp your lashes and hold in the eyelash curler for 5-10 seconds to lock in your curl. Holding your lashes in the curler for a few seconds will help to keep your lash curl in place. To really make your eyes pop, reposition the eyelash curler halfway down your lashes after that initial curl and clamp for at least 5 seconds to give your lashes an extra lift.

Step 4: Use The Right Mascara

Using the right mascara can help to accentuate the curl of your lashes. At Glow For It, we offer the perfect mascara to do just that! Our fabulous Glow For It Mascara is infused with our amazing Glow For It Lash Serum – the serum helps stimulate growth, keeping your lashes happy and healthy whilst the mascara makes your lashes look lusciously long and fluttery – all in one swipe of a mascara wand! 

To really lift those lashes, apply the mascara as close to the root of you lashes as possible for the ultimate curl.
