I have tried many an eyelash curler and with most I end up frustrated with Quasimodo looking lashes. Instead of a natural looking curl, I end up with 3/4 my eyelashes get crimped fiercely up while the other 1/4 towards the edge of my eye remain uncurled and prostrate or crushed completely. (Not a good look.)
Enter Pro-Eyelash Curler by Tweezerman. Before even touching the curler to my lashes it’s evident this curler is quality by the way it handles. It is easy to use and has a narrower top bar making the silicone curling pad hit the lashes closer to the roots. The pad itself is thicker helping the lashes to curve more naturally (no crimping!) The best part is the curler has a wider opening then most curlers out there and even gets the lashes in the far corners. The curler is a little more expensive then others on the market ($20), however it is worth the investment.
To ensure I using my curler properly (these rules apply to all curlers), I consulted the Tweezerman professionals on the dos and don’ts and got the 411 on the following:
How often should you change the insert pads?
We recommend changing the insert pads anywhere from 3-6 months. In between pad changes to prevent bacteria, use a cotton ball with alcohol to clean pad. The ProCurl comes with three replacement pads.
Should I use the curler before or after mascara is applied?
Make sure you curl your lashes before mascara application. Never curl lashes after you apply mascara — as the mascara dries, lashes can stick to the curler & be torn from the roots.
Is it best to curl right after a shower or washing the face while lashes are slightly damp?
It’s best to use when eyelashes are clean and completely dry. Trying to curl wet could result in the “bent lashes” look.
