And if there is a anyone, anyone at all, who already does all of these things on a regular basis, you win a bajillion brownie points. You're also probably a much better/more organized human being than I am.
• Press down very gently. Your eyelash and eyelid are very fragile. There's no need to squeeze roughly. Multiple light squeezes are more effective.
• Learn more than one technique. There are hundreds of different methods. None of them are right or wrong, unless they're not working for you personally. Luckily, there are tons of blog and Youtube tutorials that specially feature eyelash curling.
• Properly store while traveling. Eyelash curlers are delicate. That frame can break or get bent out of shape easily. Remember, if the frame gets off a bit, you could end up chopping off your eyelashes the next time you go to curl them.
• Keep out of reach of children. SO many curlers come with this warning on the packaging and with good reason. Sharp metal tools for your eyes do not make good toys.
• Replace the rubber pad if it gets torn, cracked or broken in anyway.
• Clean with soap and water, just like you would your brushes, at least once a week.
See what you can learn from reading product instruction manuals? You obviously can use your eyelash curler however you want! These are just a few tips that might help you trouble shoot if your curler isn't working the way you want.
Anyone else have any tips and tricks to get the most out of this beauty tool?
Also, does anyone really replace them every single year? Pretty sure I used the same curler from middle school all the way up to last year. Oops!
