Beautiful eyes with long curly lashes are what every woman dearly craves to possess. They sure do make the first impression and can often be the most talked about thing about a woman. But not many are gifted with such excellent features. Most women tend to have small eyes with small, straight eyelashes that often mar the charm. But just because you weren’t naturally gifted doesn’t mean that you cannot do anything about it. Several techniques are often used by women to ensure that their eyes look bigger and more charming. You can apply eyeliners, use lash extensions or even curl your lashes so that they look dreamy and steamy.
Though a lash curler is often used for this purpose, you may not always have one handy. So, what would you do in case you need to curl your eyelashes when you don’t have access to a lash curler? Would you just compromise your looks? Of course, not! Here are a few simple techniques that can help you get curly lashes without using a curler:
Using a mascara brush
If you have your mascara brush at your disposal, you can use the same to curl your lashes. As you apply mascara to your lashes, make sure that you use the brush to curl the tips of the lashes and hold them in place for about ten seconds to get the curly effect.
Using heated fingers
Another easy way to curl your eyelashes is to use your fingertips to curl them. Let your hot breath warm up your fingertips and then press them onto your lashes so that they go into a curled position. Maintain the position about ten seconds and remove your hands and your lashes will become curled. You may or may not use mascara later.
Use a spoon
Getting a spoon is one of the easiest things. So, find a spoon and warm it by placing it in warm water. Now, press your lashes with the curved edge of the spoon so that the lashes are curled at the lid. Wait for ten seconds and you can have curled lashes.
Use a bit of mascara
Once you have applied mascara to your eyelashes, use a swab of cotton to curl the lashes at the lid and hold them in that position for a few seconds. A little pressure with the swab is important, but make sure that the pressure isn’t too high because you may end up hurting your lashes and eyes.
Use a toothbrush
Another easy hack that can help you curl your lashes is the use of a toothbrush. Take a clean toothbrush, hold it under water and then dry it gently with a towel. Now use the damp bristles of the toothbrush to hold the lashes in a curled position for a short while. The curling will show up immediately.
Though these techniques can help you have curly eyelashes very easily, but the result isn’t as good as when done with a lash curler. Also, the curls will not last long. So, use these techniques only if you need curly lashes very badly but have to curler with you.
