Our Guide to Eyelash Tweezers

Silly George false lashes are seriously hardy:, they’ll hang with you all day whether you’re hitting the gym or the dancefloor, and they’ll even be ready to go again the very next day.  

The only time you need to be gentle with them is when you’re at that delicate stage of applying or removing your falsies. If you handle them too roughly, the silky fibres which are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural lashes might be damaged.  

This is where tweezers come in... 

Why do I need tweezers? 

Tweezers make it easy to position your falsies in just the right spot on your lash line (and remove them) as their narrow points allow you to grip the lash band without damaging the lashes themselves. 

Trust us, they’re a total time-saver! 

 

Tweezer Options 

Straight Tweezers 

The standard option, with two straight points which meet perfectly for a strong grip. 

Our verdict: You can’t go wrong with this staple, but because the contact area between the points is small you have to hold them quite tightly which can get tiring. 

Ridged Tweezers 

These tweezers are similar to the straight version, but instead of two triangles meeting in a sharp point, they have a little raised curve about 2cm from the end of the tweezer and the points fold together. 

Our verdict: The idea with ridged tweezers is that the tweezer points are in contact over a greater area, so you get a tight hold with only a light squeeze. 

Hammer Tweezers 

Tweezers that come with a head that looks a little like a hammerhead shark. They’re able to hold false lashes along the length of the lash band rather than at one specific point, which in theory means you don’t have to squeeze the falsie so hard. 

Our verdict: A good option which won’t damage your falsies but can be slightly unwieldy to use. 

Isolation Tweezers 

No, these aren’t tweezers just for people who currently have Covid. Isolation tweezers are used by beauticians to isolate and hold individual lashes whilst applying lash extensions.  

Our verdict: Unless you’re a professional beautician, you probably won’t be needing these. The same applies to ‘curved’ and ‘volume’ tweezers which, again, are used during lash extension applications. 

Magnetic Applicator 

Not strictly a tweezer, but worth knowing about. If you use magnetic lashes, you can find magnetic lash applicators which allow you to clip together both the top and bottom sets of magnetic lashes in one easy click.  

Our verdict: A great way of speeding up the application process for magnetic lashes. 

Does it matter what material I buy? 

Tweezers are made of a variety of materials, from stainless steel to gold to hardened plastics. All offer different features, but the most important thing is that you find a weight and grip which feels comfortable to you, so that the tweezers don’t slip and your hand doesn’t get sore. 

So, there you have it, everything you need to know to master your tweezer game. But remember, before you get round to applying your falsies you also need a pair of lash scissors to cut them to the right length. For the perfect tweezer/scissor combo, look no further than our SuperNatural Series Starter Bundle which contains everything you need to get started!
