Asian Makeup: How to Combat Straight Eyelashes
Whether you are Asian, Eastern European, or simply have lashes that refuse to curl -- these tips will change your life
Tip 4: Walk it outTo avoid the L-Shape, "make sure to walk the curler out" by starting at the base and holding it there for 10 seconds, then a shorter hold in the middle and then at the tip. Here's a step-by-step:
Step 1: Make sure your lashes are clean, which means no eye cream or residue from yesterday's mascara.
Step 2: With your chin up, look down in to the mirror so that you can see your lashes.
Step 3: Start at the base of the lash -- you want the curler to be against your cheek. Babaian warns to not "lift the tongs of the curler, because that'll pull out your lashes."
Step 4: Hold it for 10 seconds. Remember to be gentle -- don't squeeze.
Step 5: Walk up the curler to the midpoint of your lashes, holding it for a shorter period of time (about five seconds).
Step 6: Do another short squeeze at the tips.
Babaian says, "You must curl in that order, because your base is going to push the lashes up and the squeeze in the center is going to make the lashes curl. The lashes taper finer at the tip, so you hold down on them the least."
