Lash curling DIY

Before discussing the necessary tools like an eyelash curler, let's explore some simple at-home techniques often suggested for last-minute lash curling with eye makeup. While we recommend investing in the right tools, these techniques can come in handy:

Technique 1: Hands

Gently warm your fingers by rubbing them together, then place your index finger horizontally across your natural lashes and push them back gently.

Technique 2: Spoon

Warm a spoon in a cup of warm water and then place the curved side against your lashes, pushing them up and back and holding for 15-20 seconds.

Technique 3: Toothbrush

Similar to the previous technique, warm a toothbrush under hot tap water for a few seconds, then use it like a mascara brush, gently brushing your lashes upwards and pausing at the tips for a couple of seconds.

These simple tricks can provide a temporary curl to your natural lashes. If you desire a perfect and long-lasting curled lash look, it's time to invest in the right tools.

The best lash curling tools

When it comes to achieving the perfect and natural lash look, one tool stands out—the Eyelash Curler! However, eyelash curlers come in various shapes and sizes. So, how do you choose the right one for you?

Consider the following factors when searching for an eyelash curler:

1) Eye Shape: Some eyelash curlers are designed specifically to suit certain eye shapes. You can determine your eye shape by referring to our guide.

2) Cushion Thickness: Around 90% of eyelash curlers have a "clamp" design that holds your lashes. To prevent lash damage, make sure the cushion on the clamp is thick and soft.

3) Curling Style: While clamp curlers are the most common, you can also find heated wand curlers on the market. Both are effective, but wands are ideal for flatter lashes that require more dramatic curling, while clamps are great for achieving softer, more natural curls.

By considering these factors, you can find an eyelash curler that suits your needs and helps you achieve the desired curl.

    The perfect lash curling technique

    Once you’ve decided on your eyelash curler, you need to make sure you’re using it properly! Poor lash curling techniques can damage lashes and even cause breakage.

    Luckily, we’ve got a whole blog dedicated to the perfect lash curling technique here. Spoiler alert: one of the secrets is making sure you place the curling clamps as close as possible to the base of your lashes.

    When to combine makeup with curling

    Of course, lash curling is only one part of the wider lash look you’re going for, and often that means pairing it with the eye makeup. This is where people often ask us – what should come first, curling or makeup? Well, it’s time to put the debate to bed because the answer is unequivocally BEFORE.

    Makeup can make your lashes more brittle, so if you try to curl after you’ve applied mascara for example, there’s a greater chance of damaging your lashes.

    Lash maintenance

    There’s a simple truth to lash curling – the longer the lashes you must start with, the more awesome the curl will look! Your lash maintenance routine is therefore a crucial part of curling success. Using Lash Growth Serums as part of your regular lash maintenance is a great way of boosting natural lash growth - ours even shows results after just four weeks.

    Plus, Lash Growth Serums have a secondary moisturising effect on your lashes which prevents them from becoming brittle.
