CURL: It is worth investing in an eyelash curler to curve your lashes up, which helps to minimize the appearance of dark shadows that lashes cast over your eyes. A quality curler also prepares lashes for a neatly applied coat of mascara without the fly-aways. Start curling at the bottom of the lash line. Press firmly three times before moving up to the middle of the lash. Repeat until you get to the tips.
