Well, here is the list of beauty tools that I use to pamper and beautify myself : )
1. Eyelash curler
It is every girl’s dream to have fluttery eyelashes that mesmerise, including me. I am currently using the Brigitte Eyelash Curler which I use for both my real natural eyelashes as well as for fake eyelashes.
I have also made a comparison between Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler EH-SE60 below for you to better understand the differences between a normal eyelash curler and a heated one.
2. Electric eyelash curler
- Front packaging of the box
- A comprehensive step-by-step tutorial which is easy to follow is provided at the back of the packaging box
- Comes with the eyelash curler and cleaning brush
- A battery-operated heated eyelash curler
Now, I am sure many of you are curious as to the differences between a heated eyelash curler and a normal eyelash curler, am I right? Well, I was equally curious too so I experimented on my eyelashes which would provide the most accurate illustration.
Do take note that this heated curler may also be used on fake eyelashes!
Both seem to do a pretty decent job in curling the lashes. However, I must first disclaim that my eyelash on my left (which is the one that the heated eyelash curler was used) is shorter and more sparse than those on my right. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea too.
Next, what are curled eyelashes without the help of mascara? As with most Asians, we are not blessed with thick and long eyelashes compared to other races, but fret not! Mascara is the key!
I am using the L’Oreal – False Lash Architect 4D Fibre Effect Mascara which is my current favourite now and I consider it to be my Holy Grail 🙂
And because like I have said, I have short and sparse eyelashes, I have been trying to achieve longer and thicker eyelashes with the help of DHC Eyelash Tonic.
I must say that it really does help growing my eyelashes out 🙂
It is also recommended to be applied before applying mascara so that you still can to nourish your eyelashes even while wearing mascara on and I like to think of it like a ‘primer’ before make-up kind of thing.
However, this is where the problem steps in. 😦
You can see that after curling my eyelashes and applying a layer of DHC Eyelash Tonic, it weighs the eyelashes down, causing it not to be as curled up as before.
If you are thinking that this isn’t a big issue because you can just curl it again, then you are wrong!
You should never curl your eyelashes after applying eyelash tonic or mascara. This is because after applying these chemicals onto your eyelashes, they become more vulnerable and even more brittle. Hence, if you were to apply pressure on them, they would break and drop easily. Certainly not what I desire for.
However, compared to the other eye which I used the heated eyelash curler, after applying the eyelash tonic, I could still curl the eyelashes up without apply much pressure on them.
And this is how it looks like after applying mascara.

So which would you choose?
I reckon the answer is quite obvious 😉
3. Fake eyelash + glue
Putting on mascara can be a hassle especially if your mascara results in clumping and removing them is such a hassle!
But fret not, because fake eyelashes are here to rescue!
Many girls rely heavily on them to create fluttery eyelashes. As for me, I prefer more ‘natural’ looking ones such as the one below.
I have been using this brand for several years and they only cost $4.90 for 6 pairs!!! I do re-use them and you can actually do so if you do not destroy the lash bone structure. Also, the hairs do not drop easily compared to other brands.
Before wearing them on, you will have to snip off the ends of the eyelashes.
The trick is to leave the shorter eyelash hair for the inner corner of your eye and the longest ones at the outer corner. If you leave the longest side for your inner eye, you would look plain weird.
Why? Just think about it.
Our own natural eyelashes grow this way as well if you’d noticed. 🙂
I have done up a video tutorial to show you girls how to put on fake eyelashes fast!
Now you can turn every guy’s head with just a flutter of your beautiful eyelashes! 😛
