It may sound touch terrifying, but using an eyelash curler with heat can be a beauty routine life changer. While many people may shy away from the idea of using a heat tool so close to their eyes, those in the know consider their heated eyelash curler to be a beauty must have.
How those in the know use it
Most heated eyelash curlers look like fat pens with small, nubby, spoolie brushes on the end. They are essentially tiny curling wands that use triple-A batteries to give your lashes a little extra oomph. Unlike their larger cousins used for hair, its best to err on the side of warm and not hot, so you don’t run the risk of burning yourself. Start with your regular metal eyelash curler to give your lashes a big curl, and then apply the heated eyelash curler to give your lashes a further curl by using it like a tiny curling wand.
Three reasons you should own one:
They’re great for events or nights out
Those who prefer not to use false eyelashes and can’t handle the idea of the expensive and time-consuming task of getting eyelash extensions can still get a more dramatic curl than they normally would by making use of an eyelash curler with heat. While not something for everyday use (though that depends on your every day), heated eyelash curlers can give your lashes extra lift and curl that will open your eyes and make your makeup look more dramatic for a night out.
They’re cheaper than other options
Heated eyelash curlers are significantly more affordable than extensions or even falsies. High-quality false lashes can run you $30 to $50 and up for one set. You will also need to purchase the glue and go through the mess of putting them on. At the end of the night, you’ll need to carefully clean the lashes so that they don’t become encrusted with makeup. Extensions are costly and time-consuming endeavors that require monthly touch-ups. Your first full set can run you up to $100 and will take three hours to apply.
A heated eyelash curler, on the other hand, can be acquired from Sephora for about $30 and it will last you ages.
They’re better for your eyelashes than extensions
Eyelash extensions may be incredibly lush and dramatic, but they come with their own set of risks. First, you must find someone well trained and reviewed so that you know you are getting a careful, hygienic application. Someone who does not use clean tools or doesn’t know what they’re doing could introduce bacteria to your eye or injure the delicate skin around your eye when applying the lashes. You could even end up with an allergic reaction to some of the ingredients used in the extension glue and wind up with swollen, irritated eyelids and the need to get your extensions removed.
On the other hand, a heated eyelash curler runs none of these risks, can be sanitized after use, and does not require a trained technician to use!
