My favorite eyelash curlers
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?
- The pad is great quality. Which give long lasting curl results for my thick, straight lashes.
- 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.
- 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!
