If you have troublesome lashes, traditional curling tools won’t always cut it. This heated eyelash curler can get even the most stubborn, unruly lashes to show their curves—and can even be used to unravel overcurled lashes, making them longer and more uniformHere’s how to turn up the heat on your lashes:
1. Press and hold the on/off switch for 3 seconds, until the red light comes on. Wait 30-60 seconds for the curler to heat up. (Caution: do not leave on for too long before use, as the curler could overheat.)
2. Put your chin up and look down in front of a mirror. Position the rod at the root of the top lash and slowly sweep it upwards to the tips of the lashes. At the same time, “resist” the curler by slightly closing your eye so the lashes push down on the rod.
3. For extra oomph, after your mascara has dried, you can go over the lashes again for a final sweep to “set” them into place.
