Alright, we’ll say it: eyelash curlers are one of the most underrated beauty products of all time. If mascara is pepper, eyelash curlers are salt. Using one without the other will not yield the best results. We get it, they’re intimidating and their clinical appearance definitely gives them a bad name, but trust us when we say the results are well and truly unmatched. Any avid lash curler will tell you straight – once you start you will not go back. Our top tip: with a steady hand, holding them as close to the lash line as possible, press down and hold for five seconds. Be sure to use them before applying your mascara or you risk accidentally plucking out lashes.
Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler
If the 95+ five-star reviews don’t excite you, the long list of celebrity MUA’s who swear by it will. Made in Japan, the extra beefy red silicone base prevents any pulling or tugging on lashes but still delivers optimum curling capabilities. Use short squeezes to boost each lash from the base and enhance your eyes exponentially.
