What do eyelash curlers actually do to your eyelashes?

For many of us, eyelash curlers are an essential part of our morning mascara routine. Maybe it’s because they’re known to enhance the appearance of lash length or to be eye-mazing for curling eyelash hairs. Whether you’re into them, or have never tried them before, we’re here to tell you what exactly eyelash curlers actually do to your eyelashes.


Eyelash curlers are a hand-operated beauty tool that enables you to curl eyelash hairs to create lift. They are mostly used on upper eyelash hairs. Commonly made with metal, curlers often include rubber pads to support the direct contact between hairs and the curling tool. Whether you buy a mascara for length, volume or curl, curlers are a great way to make your lashes look wide eyed!
