My favorite eyelash curlers

Shiseido eyelash curler

Do  you struggle with eyelash curlers? Today I’m going to talk about my long term favorite eyelash curler, current favorite and a new one I’m trying. In my previous post about lashes + mascara (to read about it click here ) I talked about the time of my discovery about eyelash curlers, my favorite mascara, and even the tragedy I went through when I used a very cheap eyelash curler. Don’t get me wrong, some cheap stuff are good. I love saving! But I quickly learned not be so cheap when it comes to my eyes. Affordable sounds better! So I want to share with you my favorites and personal tips.

Let’s get started.

First of all, NO! I haven’t tried every eye lash curler. There’s too many! And if you read about my favorite mascara  . You’ll discover why I’m very picky about my eyelash curler. The eyelash curlers I’ve found, keep my lashes curled all day, and when curling my lashes it fits my eyelid perfectly! Which is very important. This way you’re actually curling every eyelash, and not leaving a few out. I’ve notice that when you leave a few out, they don’t turn out evenly curled, so when using an eyelash curler that doesn’t fit the eyelid, you’ll have a harder time achieving that evenly natural curl look. When applying mascara to uneven curl lashes, it can also get messy. You’ll end up with a short lashes look. That weird, spider look.

1. Tweezerman! This eyelash curler has been my favorite for years  now! Can’t go wrong with it, plus it’s so affordable. Pad is long lasting, hypo-allergenic, and silicone. This eyelash curler fits my lid perfectly! I personally love the ones that come in a pack. It’s perfect for a forgetful person like me. You don’t want to keep the same one forever. Take care of your lashes girl!!

2. MUD (Makeup Designory). Professional quality, also another of favorites! I like to switch between Tweezerman and this one. They both give me the same results. Both of the brands have silicone pad, and both fit my eyelid perfectly! Which is key to achieve those natural looking curl eyelashes.

3. Shiseido! This one is new to me. I’ve heard great things about it, so I decided to purchase it and try it out myself. This is a great one for my Asian girls. In fact, when I worked cosmetics, this eyelash curler was always selling. The material is great. However, Tweezerman remains my main!

 Why do I love these eyelash curlers?

  1. The pad is great quality. Which give long lasting curl results for my thick, straight lashes.
  2. The metal construction is great! Fits the eyelid great, which is key when curling the lashes. This way, I can curl little by little to the end of the tips of my lashes. I start gently, and repeat as I go. I will talk more in detail about it in a future post.
  3. Professional results.

Things I look for before I try a new eyelash curler, or do before curling my eyelashes.

  • I close it tight a good 2-3 xs before going to the eyes – This is my way of preventing any future accidents to my eyelashes. I like to squeeze the pad a few seconds before use.
  • Check the metal construction! Especially when trying a new one. Sounds weird, I know. But I’m very mindful about this! After accidentally pulling ALL of my  eyelashes from my left eyelid, I now make sure the metal material, and the feeling of the grip when holding an eyelash curler is in good shape or quality.
  • No-stick pad
  • Avoiding oils, hand creams, or anything that will cause my hands to feel greasy prior to curling my eyelashes.
  • Replacing my eyelash curler frequently, and the pad as well. Once it gets old, if you pay attention, you start to kind of force your eyelash curler to get tighter when curling, this can cause damage to your lashes! #protectyourlashes girl!
  • Clean any residue from previous use, and Sanitize! Can’t explain this one enough. I shouldn’t have to go into detail for this one. Just be mindful about it. When you’re curling your eyelashes, you’re getting very near to your eyes! Also, you don’t want something like, previous mascara residue pulling your lashes. You never know! It’s better to be safe.
  • Make sure it fits my eyelid! If it feels funny, I don’t bother risking it.

 Remember, take care of your eyelashes to keep them healthy for long lasting, beautiful lashes. I hope you found this post helpful!

InStyle November 2015 Issue: Beauty International Shopping List

My favorite mascara is starting to expend! And thanks to Theebella.com I don’t have to ask someone to bring me a tube from my country. Along with Amazon, where I literally purchase everything. A few years back, I would have never imagined that I would be writing about the mascara that changed my LIFE! Literally. Here’s the thing about being a girl. We all LOVE beautiful long lashes. We admire and even envy those with the most beautiful natural lashes. So, I fell in love with this mascara by mistake. Let me tell you the story behind why and how I lost ALL of my eyelashes from my left eyelid, and how this mascara brought them back to life.

It all started the day I learned about an eyelash curler. That thing looked so scary!! I was under the age of 15. I wasn’t lucky enough to have natural curl lashes. My eye lashes are straight as my hair! But they’re actually not short, which is a plus. I just needed an eyelash curler + mascara in my life and boom! Life complete, or so I thought. The second I dominated how to use an eyelash curler, I applied the first mascara I got to my hands. To my disappointment, a few seconds after applying mascara to my curl lashes, my eyelashes went back to straight! The curl was gone. They didn’t even last a minute. At first I thought it was the mascara, so I begin to purchase different brands thinking I would find the one! You guessed it. I never found the one, at least not at the time. So, I begin to do what I like to call “tiplash” trick. It’s when I only applied mascara to the tips of my eyelashes, that was the only way my lashes remained curled. I still use this trick to this day, just differently. Which I will talk about in a different post.

Long story short. One day while I was in my country, with the eyelash curler I accidentally pulled off almost ALL of my eyelashes from my left eyelid. I should of never applied body lotion to my hands before curling my lashes, and I shouldn’t have been so cheap with my eyelash curler at the time. Girl, I’m telling you. I almost cried. I applied thick eyeliner and I was glad I had glasses!

All concerned, I asked my friend if she noticed anything and finally after telling her the truth behind my question, she laughed a little bit and said “Izamar! Just use this mascara and they will grow back to normal!” … Say what now?

Yes! Made with Mamey seed oil. This mascara helped my lashes grow back! Now, you might be wondering how I even applied mascara to an eyelid with  no lashes? Well, I literally begin to apply this mascara to my few chopped lashes. I also applied it to my right eyelid lashes. Expecting my lashes to lose their curl, to my surprise they DIDN’T. I waited to see. Waited, waited, waited and waited and OMG! My lashes remained nice and curled. Not even just curled, but actually the way I curled every one of them with the eyelash curler. That was my first experience of LOVE at first TRY with cosmetics. My lashes grew back to normal, quick and beautiful.

So what’s the secret behind the mascara? The answer is simple. Mamey Seed Oil + more. You can learn more about it in the link below.

Benefits of Mamey Seed Oil Mascara

So here are a few things from theebella’s site. Where they specializes in high-quality products that are not easy to find in the U.S. market.

  • All made with 90% natural ingredients

  • Mascara with Mamey Seed Oil.

  • TheeBella’s #1 selling product was recently featured by InStyle magazine as one of the best international beauty products. The secret ingredient to this mascara’s formula is the mamey-seed oil. Mamey-seed oil conditions your lashes and helps them grow thicker and longer.

  • These products have never been tested in animals and they promote the protection of the environment

  • natural organic oils, antioxidants and mineral plant extracts and hypoallergenic formula that is enriched with vitamin E.

     

It truly makes me proud to blog about my favorite mascara! Not only because it changed my life, but because it comes from my own country and as a new beauty blogger, Mexican born. This post is a dream.

And girl, or gentlemen if that’s the case. If you yourself, or someone you know struggles with lashes like mine. Have lost their lashes, have thin lashes or simply want longer, healthier and thicker lashes. Tag them to this post! And did I mentioned the price? You can find it for $6 dollars up to $10. Depending where you purchase it. The price is so affordable, it’s worth the try! Be patient with the mascara. Magic won’t happen one day to another, but if you have a hard time keeping your lashes curled, magic WILL happen. I love to use this mascara as a base before false lashes, and even just as my mascara base to maintain the lashes curled and then use my “tiplash” trick with other mascara brands if I want to be more dramatic. I hope you found this helpful.

To learn more about this mascara, you can visit www.theebella.com where you can also purchase it, or if you have an Amazon account, you can purchase it there too.

Wigs & Fake Tattoos

<3

 

 Something slightly different! I love every kind of beauty, look, and style. I find beauty in EVERYTHING & EVERYONE. What inspired my look? My FEAR for needles! I’ve always wanted a tattoo, or multiple tattoos I should say. The fear of fainting stops me. Dragging me to the Doctor gives me enough anxiety. So, I really wanted to create a sexy tattoo look. I think I nailed it!!

Product details below…

I’m telling you guys, it’s all about knowing your angles! Once you nail it down, you can become your own photographer and get amazing photos!

The products I used for my eye shadow:

Modern Renaissance by ANASTASIA:  Raw sienna, Burnt orange with a bit of Realgar for the crease.

For the lid, I used Better Together TOO FACED + KAT VON D palette in the color “Yours” from Kat Von D’s side. I also applied the same shadow for the lower lash line.

I then added (using my ring finger) “Swoon” in the center of my lid. 

The eyeliner for my waterline: Clinique High Impact custom black kajal.

Mascara: Clinique’s Lash Doubling in black.

For the Browbone Highlighter & Tearduct, I used the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D in {Pink} opal.

I then decided to add the Alchemist Holographic Palette in {pink} opal over the shadow of my lid and for the lower lash line I added {ultra-violet} amethyst, which is the reason the colors changed. Which I was happy with.

Lips: NYX lip liner in Burgundy 803. Matte lip color by Lorac in Merlot & Potion lip gloss by ANASTASIA

FAKE TATTOOS

I order a few fake tattoos from tinsleytransfers.com They are okay for fun! But if you really want to fool someone, probably not your first choice. I added powder right over them, to reduce some of the shine for the camera. However, I had some Pro Transfer Tattoos left from Temptupro and added those last minute too. Which I prefer.

Literally OBSESSED with the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D. I can change colors with just a little bit of the highlighter. I mixed {Ultra-violet} amethyst & {Pink} opal together for my cheek bones.

The wig is from 7-mile Fashion.  They have affordable fun wigs. Perfect for beginners, customs or just for fun. I usually go the one on Lake Street.

2116 East Lake Street
Minneapolis, MN 55407

They have two other locations.
