Beauty School Basics: How to Curl Your Lashes
- Written By:Bobbi Brown
It's time to get back to the basics. This month I'll be sharing a few simple, beauty how-tos.
People are always surprised by how something as simple as curling their lashes can open up the eyes and change their look. It's also not a complicated beauty move to master. Here's my fool-proof guide to perfectly curled lashes.
Look straight ahead with your eyes open. Insert your lashes into the curler and press down while keeping your head up.
Hold for 30 seconds. And whatever you do — don't pump. This can cause extra stress on your lashes and lead to breakage and an uneven curl.
Once you've let go, it's time to apply mascara. A curling formula will help keep your curl in place while defining your lashes, but it's not required. Use whatever mascara formula you prefer — volumizing, lengthening and curling all will give you the results you want.
When your mascara is almost dry, take your finger and gently press your lashes in the direction of the curl. Hold for a few seconds to set the lashes. This gives you an extra boost.
Never use the curler after you apply your mascara, it will lead to breakage.
