Mastering doing makeup around your eyes can be pretty tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it’s one of those things that’s easy to get smug about and forget that it requires extra precaution and attention. For example, doing your mascara in the car—not safe for a number of reasons, but something many women do anyway—because what are the odds?
Celebrity makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor adds that to prevent lashes from catching in the curler while using it, “Make sure to hold the curler level and look through it into a mirror. Line the top metal part of the curler against your upper lashes. Close the curler slowly so you can feel if you might pinch yourself. Slide it out a bit if you’re too close. My favorite curler is the one from Revlon. It’s actually a little easier to use because the pad is red, which helps you see your lashes better than curlers with a black one.”
