      Ok, I am mastering the false eyelashes and rocking it like a true diva!  I attended a black tie fundraiser tonight and I felt SUPER fabulous.  Now my next hurdle...eyelash curlers.  I can’t use ‘em to save my life, everytime I try...I end up pinching my skin around my eyes and it hurts like crazy.  Maybe my face is to chubby? or I am not holding the curlers properly.  Any tips would be helpful.

      Thanks Goddesses!

        • Tweezerman makes an eyelash curler that is for lack of a better description rimless.... It took me a bit to get used to the rimless version but once I did I can get closer to the corners. Also use a blowdryer on low to heat up the pads before really helps the lashes to curl better. I reccommend to curl before applying mascara and to make sure you have blotted off any eye cream.
          If I did it right I attached a link but if not go to then look under lashes.
          I hope this helps...

        • Yes, I used my blowdryer on my lash curler too.  It does make a difference.  And absolutely don’t put on the mascara first.  Even when not heating your lash curler you shouldn’t have make-up on first.  I do this before I start anything else.  

          What I do to avoid getting pinched (ouch!) is to not go quite to the very end of my lashes.  I stop about 3/4 of the way or even a little before that.  My lashes get curly on the ends and that’s really what I notice anyway.  

          Have you looked into lash extensions?  I have heard good and not-so-good about them myself.

        • My eyelashes are stick straight and heating up my curler helps, too.

          I bought a battery powered eyelash curler once that warmed up on its own. Junk! It didn’t work at all.

          I also use waterproof mascara. I find that it’s the only type of mascara that will hold a curl on my lashes.
