How to Curl Your Eye Lashes

Since we can't all be blessed with long lashes, thank goodness mascara can make it look as if we were. All Hollywood movie stars and singers wear false eyelashes, but if you'd rather wear mascara... Here is a very simple method of applying mascara for every day wear.

This technique is for women that either can't afford a eyelash curler. The inexpensive ones padding is too thin. Or perhaps you want to know how your great grandmother use to curl her lashes before the eye lash curler was invented.

Draw wand out of mascara tube and remove the excess on a piece of paper towel or tissue.

Hold wand horizontally and slowly twirl as you move the brush from the roots to the tips.
To set curl, hold wand and lashes together at the tips for a several seconds.

Apply second coat before the first coat has dried to avoid clumping.

Apply mascara carefully to the bottom lashes, holding wand vertically.

While lashes are still wet, comb through the lashes (carefully) with a lash comb to separate each lash.

Tips:

1. Be sure to wash off your mascara each night. Not only will it smear during the night, you won't be able to apply more until your lashes are free from the old mascara.

2. Mascara is a breeding ground for germs. Be sure to replace it every three months.

3. Never pump the wand into the tube. This procedure only adds air to the mascara, drying it out.

I have used that technique for years. An inexpensive eyelash curler works well too :)
