Lashes which don’t curl can be well, down right annoying. Curled lashes are longer looking lashes and I hate applying mascara without curling my lashes first. 

The curling:

A good eyelash curler is essential, this doesn’t mean an expensive lash curler Eyelash Curlerfrom a cult brand like Shu Uemura but it means that a $1 one usually won’t cut it. I like the Sally Hansen La Cross Curler because it is budget friendly but still produces excellent results. To use an eyelash curler start with clean lashes, hold it at the base of your lashes and squeeze for a few seconds, then walk it out to the middle of your lashes squeeze and then to the very tips of the lashes and squeeze again,  you can also repeat the step but only use your lash curler before mascara, using it after can damage your lashes.  Using heat will also make the curl last longer, you can either opt for a heated eyelash curler (which can be used before and after mascara) or heat your eyelash curler under a medium heat (just make sure you test it on the back of your hand first to ensure it is not too hot)

The priming:

A lash primer will help to make your mascara last longer and will give more length and curl to your lashes which is a huge benefit. I like the ELF Studio Mascara Primer (which bonus is super affordable!)

The mascara:

This is one of the most important steps and an important key when you want to hold a curl on your lashes: use a waterproof The Rocket Waterproofmascara. Waterproof mascaras generally hold curl better as it isn’t as easily disrupted by any water from your eyes as a normal mascara. I love Maybelline The Rocket which also comes in a waterproof version. Curved mascara brushes work great too as they help to catch every lash, giving you that really curved/feline look. I like to use the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara as a base and then top it off with Maybelline The Rocket

The applying:

Make sure you wiggle the mascara wand at the base of your lashes to give them the most lift and curl possible.

I hope I helped you and if you need anything else feel free to ask.

If any product you use irritates you discontinue use immediately.
