Every month I share a pro tip with you. This month it's about curls .... 
 

Curling your eyelashes makes your eyes look bigger, wider, brighter & younger.

For the perfect curl ensure your eyelashes are completely free of mascara. Never  curl your lashes once you have applied mascara. This is the most common mistake made but as the mascara dries, lashes can stick to the curler & be torn from the roots!

Looking down into a mirror open the curler and carefully bring it near your upper lashes. Gently position your upper eyelashes between the curling blades at the mid-point. Straighten the curler so it catches all the lashes at an equal distance from their base.
Close the curler carefully on the lashes and examine the grip. If you're not satisfied, open the blades and reposition the curler. When you're happy with the grip, squeeze the curler handles tightly and hold in place for 10-30 seconds without blinking. If you close for eyes for a minute before you start your eyes will nice & moist so you won’t feel the need to blink!

Open the eyelash curler and examine the curl. Repeat if necessary to define the curl before applying makeup.

Always check that the little rubber pads on your curlers are clean and firm. After a while, the pads do wear down, become loose and pick up bacteria from the air so you should replace these at least every 2 months.
