How to curl lashes using your finger

For this method of curling your lashes, all you need is your own finger. You could wet your fingertip to do this, but be careful, because if you’re wearing eye makeup, a wet fingertip could mess it up. This demonstration uses a dry fingertip.


Simply close your eye and use your fingertip to gently push your upper eyelashes up against the top of your eyelid. Hold the eyelashes up for 30 seconds and then release them.


Repeat the same curling at the inner and outer corners of your eyelashes to curl them and give them more length. 


When you’ve curled all of your eyelashes, apply your mascara, and see the difference!

Use a spoolie brush (the kind of brush that often comes with mascara) to curl and push your eyelashes upwards, just like you did with your fingertip in method 1. Hold the brush in place for 30 seconds and repeat on the inner and outer corners.


If you don’t want to use mascara, you can wet the brush with a little castor oil to hold the curl in your eyelashes and help them grow longer.
