Q: How do I keep my eyelashes curled all day long?

A: We girls certainly like our glamorous eyelashes – and I would know, as I get this question frequently. Of course I’ll share my secret to all-day-long, eye-popping curled eyelashes with you. All right, ladies, grab your waterproof mascara and your eyelash curler, and follow these steps.

  1. Before applying any mascara, curl your bare lashes with an eyelash curler for 30 seconds. (Seems like an eternity, doesn’t it? Trust me, it’s worth it.)
  2. Next, put a light coat of oil-based waterproof mascara on your lashes, starting at the base of your lashes and working your way toward the ends. Let it dry for 10 minutes, and then apply a second coat of mascara.
  3. You can stop there, or apply a third coat 10 minutes later. The more coats you apply, the fuller your lashes will appear.

This process should make a huge difference in the appearance of your eyes and your face. Give it a try, and then pop back here and let me know how it worked for you.
