Stop Doing This To Your Eyelashes Now

This is why they are breaking off


When it comes to the curling of eyelashes, there is still a lot of debate. Should you curl them before or after applying your mascara? The simple answer: Before – if you are using a mechanical curler.

Makeup artist Larry Yeo tells us that you risk having mascara-coated lashes sticking to your mechanical curler if you use it after. This in turn might rip the lashes out or cause them to break. Ouch.

If you really need to curl your lashes after applying your mascara, we recommend using a heated curling wand instead to prevent unwanted lash loss.
