How To Use Eyelash Curlers: A Step-by-Step Guide

Keeping an eyelash curler on hand is a great way to give your lashes an instant, on-the-go lift. There’s no risk at all to your natural lashes, providing you know how to use it correctly!  

To help you out, we’ve put together the simple steps to follow every time you’re in need of a quick curl.  

Step 1: Cleanse 

Using a gentle facial cleanser (a few drops of micellar water on a cotton pad works great), give your eyelashes and eyelids a good clean, wiping away any dirt or residue. 

Then do the same for the clamps on your curler, making sure there’s no dust or leftover makeup on them. 

Step 2: Curl 

Take your eyelash curler and place it right at the base of your lashes. Clamp down for 5 seconds. 

Release the clamp, move the curler away from the base slightly and clamp down again for 5 seconds. 

Repeat a third time, moving the curler away further from the base, clamp down for 5 seconds. 

Once you’re finished, you will have given the base, the midpoint and the tips of your lashes a nice curl!  

Step 3: Mirror 

Repeat step 2 for both eyes. 

Step 4: Mascara 

Now apply your mascara, one coat or two depending on your preference.  

P.S. It’s important to apply mascara AFTER curling, never before. Read our blog to find out why. 

That’s it, you’re done! 

Uh-oh... did you leave your curler at home? 

If you suddenly find yourself in a lash emergency and your curler is nowhere to be found, don’t panic. Just check out our easy at-home tips for curling eyelashes without an eyelash curler

And of course, if you really want to juice up those lashes, your next stop should be a Lash Growth Serum. A growth serum will keep your lashes beautifully nourished, making them easier to curl, and, as you might have guessed, it will also accelerate growth!
