How to Curl Straight Lashes
If you have stubbornly straight eyelashes that won’t curl like mine, you’ve probably wished you could hairspray your eyelashes to hold the curl.
If you follow the instructions of curling your eyelashes then applying mascara… the wetness of the mascara usually takes the curl away. You’re left with volumized and lengthened, but straight lashes. So then you try curling your eyelashes then applying mascara, only to be left with clumpy eyelashes and a sticky eyelash curler.
Either way, it’s not pretty. While we can’t literally hairspray our eyelashes (I’ve tried.. don’t ask), here’s the next best thing.
1. Apply clear mascara (Jane Iredale has a good cruelty-free clear mascara) to completely dry uncurled top eyelashes. Apply both under and over top lashes. You can substitute clear mascara with brow gel if you have that handy.
2. Wait until your eyelashes are completely dried. Apply makeup or style your hair while you wait.
3. Once the clear mascara is completely dried, curl your lashes as you normally would. Notice how easily they curl? Separate your lashes if needed.
4. Apply black cruelty free mascara without fear of your eyelashes losing it’s curl!
The clear mascara basically acts as a styling gel and holds the curl even when you apply a wet coat of mascara. Happy eyelash curling everyone!
