“Help, My Lashes Won’t Hold a Curl!”
Lancome Makeup Artist Daniel Martin has a few tricks for keeping super-straight lashes curled all day.
- Step 1: Apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes before curling to give them some girth and thickness.
- Step 2: Curl your lashes by gently pressing the curler and holding for 30 seconds.
- Step 3: “One of my best tricks to ‘set’ lashes after curling is to use a lash primer,” says Martin. This treatment helps your lashes hold the shape while mascara builds on it. Wait about a minute after you use the primer to apply your final coats of mascara.
- Step 4: In some cases, lashes fall flat because mascara distribution afterwards wasn’t even. It’s best to apply mascara from root-to-tip. Wiggling at the base and pulling through evenly distributes the mascara, giving your lashes body, length and shine (that lasts all day).
