On special events, applying only mascara quite doesn’t cut it. On such days we turn to curling our eyelashes for some extra drama. In fact, eyelash curling is one of the tried and tested ways of making a big difference in your look in just a small way. Curling makes our eyelashes make us them appear instantly longer and fuller. This illusion is created by the help of the eyelash curler which bend pushes the lashes up and fans them out - thus making our eyes look more open, awake, and defined. Unfortunately, you can reap these benefits only if you are curling your lashes right. Incorrect curling will not only rob you of desired effects but even damage your eyelashes in the long run. These are the eyelash curling mistakes you should definitely be wary of!

1. Curl your lashes before applying mascara

Applying mascara to our lashes makes the hair dry, stiff and less flexible. So when you curl your lashes after applying mascara, it can cause them to break. It is also important to remove the previous day’s mascara properly before you set out to curl your lashes.

2. Curl your lashes gently

Do not clamp down hard on your lashes with a curler. The secret to long, healthy lashes, is applying a gentle pressure on them while curling. Aggressive curling will give an awkward bend to your lashes and also cause them to break from the roots.

3. Clean your eyelash curler at least once a week

It is important to keep all your beauty devices clean since they come in contact with your skin everyday. Clean the curler at least once a week with rubbing alcohol to get rid of residual eyeliner, eyeshadow, bacteria, and dead skin cells that are thriving on it. A dirty curler will make curling difficult and could also be the reason for eye infections.

4. Replace the pad often

Every eyelash curler has a protective pad on it that keeps lashes safe from the curler’s exposed metal. With usage, the pad tends to get dirty, split or cracked. Replace the pad every few months for a comfortable curling experience. Use good quality curlers to avoid injuring your eyes and lashes in any way.
