Tools of the trade - eyelash curlers

If you caught last week's Tip Tuesday, then you know giving your eyelashes a curl is necessary to make eyes pop. Check out PRTTY PEAUSHUN Creator and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Bethany Karlyn's, favorite tools of the trade below!

The gold standard for the best metal eye lash curler that makeup artists swear by is Shu Uemura ($20). 
It has a long bed plate that curls lashes rather than bends them giving a nice open natural look to the eye and reduces risk of breakage to the lash. 

The Sephora brand ($16) heated wand eyelash curler is great for not getting pinched and can be used before and/or after mascara. Gentle on the lash and is also helpful for unruly eyebrows.

Tweezerman Corner Lash Curler ($10.00). A great tool for getting at the lashes you may have missed or to use on the outside of your eyes for a little extra curl.

The Rolls Royce of heated eyelashes curlers is Hotlashes ($35). It heats up a tourmaline crystal pad and creates an ionic flow that locks in a 24 hour curl. 

In a pinch (pun intended!), use a metal teaspoon as an eyelash curler. 
After applying mascara, press lashes between your thumb and the outer edge of the spoon to create a curl. A quick blast of heat from a blowdryer on the spoon first to warm will help set the curl even better.
