The other day I wrote a post about makeup basics.
What I may not talk about as much is the proper makeup tools. I intend to share with you my thoughts on the extras that can really help make your makeup pop. It is the little things that we may not even think of.
For example your eyelashes.
I have been using a mascara from Covergirl called the Super Sizer. It does an absolutely wonderful job, at least I think so!
But there is an extra step we can take when we have the proper tool. It is easy and doesn’t take much time at all.
It is by using a simple tool called an Eyelash Curler.
Don’t be afraid of this. It is your friend!
Just apply your makeup as normal. BEFORE you apply your mascara – you will want to curl your lashes. I have been using the one by Beauty Lashious.
It is pink! I love that fact. As I have mentioned before, John isn’t in to much pink. I normally restrict around the house to my dressing room or in my personal items.
One trick I learned a while back is to hold the curler under a blowdryer for just a little bit. Don’t make it really hot, I don’t want you to be hurt! This is just what I personally do. You just have to be cautious if you decide to do it yourself.
I apply my eyeshadow first and then I curl my lashes. About 15 seconds on each eye works great.
I then apply my mascara after I curl.
The reason you want to wait until afterwards is sometimes the mascara will stick to the curler or cause it to clump. Curling after applying eyeshadow can even cause eye lashes to crack or damage. We don’t want to do that, do we?
The Beauty Lashious curler I am using is more then just “pretty”.
It is salon quality.

I had never used one of these until after I got married. Then I just bought a standard one, that really didn’t do much for my eyes. It has been trial and error for me with my makeup – but I enjoying trying and achieving the look I want. This curler has given me eyelashes that I am loving! I had considered fake lashes for a while, but if I can use this and get the same effect, I am willing to spend the extra minute doing it.
