Curl Your Lashes
Do you know what will really open up your eyes? having beautifully curled lashes. most of us don’t have these naturally but, we can all fake it thanks to a handy little tool called an eyelash curler. if you’re a makeup newbie, you might well be terrified by the look of this gadget. and if you ever try before and cut your eyelid inside it, you’re probably wary of using one. but it will make all the difference by making your eyes look that much bigger. you just need to know the career technique. so start off at the root of your lashes, and gently press and hold the eyelash curler for about 10 seconds. then place the curler in the middle of your lashes and repeat. finally, move the curler to the end of your lashes and repeat. this will create a beautiful curve along the whole length of your lashes. apply a coat of mascara after curling it’s complete. absolutely, under no circumstances, apply your mascara before you curl your lashes. they might stick to the curler, we yanked out, or even break off. you have been warned!
Blend, Blend, Blend
