Clamp Style EyeLash Curler Review

Hi Eyebrow Huns, Check out my new Clamp Style EyeLash Curler Review.

Which Lash Curler?
Curling your lashes opens up your eyes and makes your lashes look thicker and longer. To some, lash curlers look like instruments of torture, but to a make-up artist, they’re an essential beauty tool – their favourite set of lash curlers is one of the first things out of the box when they’re preparing models for photoshoots. That’s because they can give even the straightest set of lashes a fantastic curl, making them look lusher and thicker – even without mascara – and giving the eyes and open youthful look.

Lash Curling.
Find out how to open up and flatter your eyes with the curliest-looking lashes you’ve ever had – and still look completely natural.

Even if your lashes are poker-straight, using a lash curler can open up your eyes and make your lashes look curly, whether or not you’re wearing mascara. Lash curlers can look a bit scary, but they’re easy to handle when you know what to do. You will find out in this post how to give your lashes cover girl curls; the secret is to squeeze them several times with your curler – just one squeeze can leave them looking bent and unnatural.

Lasting Curls.
An eyelash perm guarantees glamorous lashes for eight weeks – they’ll stay curled even in the testing conditions of a beach holiday. It’s a job for qualified professionals only; in an hour-long process, a trained beauty therapist glues your upper lashes, one by one to a tiny spongey roller, applies a perm solution and lets it act for 10 minutes. She then applies a neutraliser and peels newly curled lashes off the roller.

Rollers come in three sizes – the smaller the roller, the tighter the curl.
Before booking yourself for an eyelash perm, arrange for a patch test in case you’re allergic to any of the products used. Ask for one-use only products – once opened, perm solution goes stale, with disappointing results.

For natural, smudge-free beauty, all you need is a set of beautiful curled lashes and a coat of clear mascara,

Lash Curling Step By Step.
You can apply eye liner and shadow before using your lash curler, but make sure your lashes are completely clean – mascara can glue them to the curler pads, with painful results.

Step 1: Start as close to the base of the lashes as you can. Lifting up your eyebrow, rest the curved metal bar on your eyelid and squeeze the curler pads together several times.

Step 2: Move halfway up your lashes and squeeze the curler again. Then move it near to the tips and repeat – several short crimps rather than one long squeeze give a more natural curl.

Step 3: For a natural look and to set the curl, brush on a coat of clear waterproof mascara or comb through with clear eyebrow gel. Or for a really lush look, use your usual mascara.

Do’s And Don’ts
Do use curlers before applying your mascara to prevent sticking.
Don’t pull on the curler – you could pull out your eyelashes.
Do pull up your eyelid with your finger to make curling easier.
Don’t use just one long squeeze – your lashes will look bent.
Do change the latex pads regularly for effective curling.
Don’t give up – wet your lashes, pat them try and try again.
