Curling your lashes before applying mascara creates a wide-eyed, wide-awake look. So many of you are rightfully dedicated to your eyelash curlers. To you ladies, I say carry on, I will not try to separate you from this wonderful tool. But for the rest of us, this is a step we skip (or want to skip) in our makeup ritual, either because it is just one step too many, or the curler fits awkwardly in our makeup kits, or it is downright scary to do (yes, I've had a few eyelid pinches). For me it is all of the above.
So I wondered, was there a lazy girl's way of getting around this? I am happy to say, YES! The results may not be exactly as good as using a curler, but it's pretty close, and certainly better than not curling at all. Plus it's quick, easy and there is no pinch! Here's how: if you use PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner, start with that. Then take your favorite mascara and apply at least one swipe to upper lashes, root to tip (or as many coats as you want). Be sure to wiggle the brush at the base of the lashes to deposit the most mascara there. On the last swipe, hold the brush at the base, pushing lashes gently up, for a count of five (one Mississippi, two Mississippi....) then move the brush halfway up the lashes and hold it again for a count of five. Sweep the brush through the tips of your lashes. Apply mascara to lower lashes if you want. And, you're done. Let me know if this works for you <3
