TRACY'S TECHNIQUE

This mini secret weapon lets you do detailed curling work so you can achieve the exact shape you want.

It’s ideal for those pesky hairs in the corner of the eye that are hard to reach with the large curler. I also use it to curl the outer third of the top lashes to open the eye and add drama. It does wonders on stick-straight bottom lashes, too.

TOP LASHES
Put your chin up and eyes down. Making sure the pink pad is at the bottom, position the curler at the root of the lashes and use your thumb and forefinger to gently squeeze.

BOTTOM LASHES
Do the same thing in reverse: chin down, eyes up, and flip the curler so the pink pad is at the top.
