If you have naturally curly lashes, you probably take for granted the trouble the rest of the world goes to to get that 8-hours-of-sleep wide-awake look. If you were born with stubby, straight, or otherwise unruly lashes, you know just how real the struggle is; especially if you have an eye shape like monolids that don’t always get along with traditional eyelash curlers. Up until now, the less lash-blessed have had to make due with repeated crimping and occasionally scary-sounding tips for heating up your lash curler, but that’s all changing thanks to this genius little tool.
The new Lash Star Beauty Individual Eyelash Curler ($29) looks like your tweezers and eyelash curler had a baby, and it works in much the same way. Simply position the squishy pink cushion along the bottom of your lashes, then, like tweezers, just squeeze the two sides of the curler together. The small head can focus the curling pressure wherever you want it (like those couple of lashes at the outer corner that never quite fall in line, or that one rebellious lash right in the middle that stays stick straight no matter what you do) and the mobility lets you get right up close to the lash line without pinching. As an added bonus for those with ultra-straight lashes, this tool also fits under those teeny lashes on your lower lid (because we can’t all be Bella Hadid)
While curling your lashes with this mini version might take a little longer than a classic full-strip curler, we have a feeling that those with hard-to-curl lashes will find it to be time well spent.
