After seeing how long and curled your lashes look, you may feel tempted to use a heated curler all the time, but it’s best to use it sparingly. “Try to give your eyelashes a break from [heated] curling from time to time to limit damage,” advises Ashley Brisette, board-certified ophthalmologist and clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
She also warns not to expose your lashes to too much heat at one time. “Be careful not to repeatedly go over the same areas multiple times, as you can heat damage these delicate hairs, and try not to pull too hard, which may damage the root of the lash,” Brisette says.
Maintaining the longevity of this curler requires minimal upkeep. Mascara tends to deposit in the crevices, so I make sure to keep it clean and crisp in order to achieve maximum results for future uses. Once I’m finished curling my lashes, I always clean the curler with a makeup wipe or damp towel.
It took me two attempts at using this curler before I saw my lashes curled and lifted to my liking. As someone who’s not very adept with false eyelashes or traditional eyelash curlers and prefers quick methods for creating curled lashes, I’ll continue to turn to this curler for all my lash styling needs (occasionally, of course).
