Best Way to Curl
Sure, eyelash curlers look kinda scary, but there’s no reason to be nervous. Apply your eye shadow and eyeliner like you do every day, but don't do your mascara just yet!
How to: First, open the lash curler and place your upper lashes in between. Move the curler up to the base of your lashes—but not far enough to be over your skin (ouch!). Slowly close the eyelash curler, then hold it closed for a few seconds. Once your eyelashes get a little shape, put on your mascara and let it dry. This makes your lashes look as long and thick as possible—score!
After Halloween, spidery lashes are a total no go. Carefully wipe your mascara wand on a tissue before to apply to get rid of excess product.
Our New Fave: Telescopic mascara makes lashes miles long. The brush looks a li’l scary, but it actually helps eliminate clumps—love that.
If you don’t wanna spend all of your babysitting moolah on mascara, head to the pharmacy to pick up one of the best brands, for cheap. Maybelline’s funky tube is a fave of celebs, makeup stylists and girls alike.
Get Rid of Makeup
When taking makeup off your lashes, never wipe, pull or scrub too hard! Apply some makeup remover to a cotton circle. Gently sweep across your lash line—not up your lashes—and clean until all of the mascara has been removed. Remember: never go to bed with mascara on.
