Let’s talk about eyelash curlers and mascara for sensitive eyes. We all know that an eyelash curler is the quickest way to create a fuller, wider and more dramatic feel for our lashes. Unless of course there are eyelash extensions or eyelash perming involved, then eyelash curlers go out the window! But, are curlers all the same because they seemingly all look the same? Or are there absolute differences that could make or break your LASH life? Let’s do some research to find out!
In diving into this topic, I found that eyelash curlers can be shaped differently, sized differently and can curl lashes differently. Heres the breakdown…
Different Types of Eyelash Curlers
- There are curlers that have a flat design instead of ‘U’ shape for the lid area with a silicone pad to lift and flare your lashes giving you the best curl.
- Some curlers like the Shu Uemura one has a shape that hugs against your lids so you can get a great curl but it also has a special patented hinge that ensures you won’t press too hard and pinch. This detail makes sure the pressure is evenly distributed at all times. Genius!
- There are curlers designed for use with all eye shapes, such as GladGirl’s Eyelash Curler, also featuring soft silicone pads to avoid damage. On sale now for only $2.99, and even at its usual price of $7.99, it’s a fraction of the cost of some more expensive options.
- There are curlers that are shaped flatter which can accommodate larger, wider eyes without missing any lashes.
- Some feature a curved shape that is longer and wider like Shiseido’s, and can fit every single lash in. Sometimes it takes a couple curls from other brands to get every lash the first time so this can be a helpful and time saving feature.
So, there are a few truths about our eyelash curlers! If you haven’t been a happy camper with your curler as of late, maybe it’s time to try eyelash extensions, LashLift, or another brand curler that is better suited to your lashes!
Mascara For Sensitive Eyes
Now, let’s talk about mascaras that are good if you have sensitive eyes. Some of us have watery/itchy eyes especially during certain times of the year like spring. So what makes a mascara good for these peeps? Mascaras that are hypoallergenic, are vegan or have natural ingredients like beeswax, are fragrance fee and allergy tested for contact wearers are ones to look out for. There are reasonable options at your local drugstore like Maybelline’s Great Lash Washable Mascara to higher end brands like Clinique’s Lash Power Mascara and specialty options like GladGirl’s Lashe EnMasse Mascara formulated for use without or without lash extensions. These are all great options for sensitive eyes.
Remember, not all eyelash curlers are the same and sensitive eyes can get lashtastic lash appeal too with the right product! Pairing the right curler and mascara together can really elevate your LASH game from here on out. YOU’RE welcome!
