Curl Your Eyelashes Without An Eyelash Curler

? Curl Your Eyelashes Using A Spoon

Grab a regular teaspoon-sized spoon. Don’t use a large spoon, as it won’t fit nicely over your eye. Make sure that the spoon curve should match the curve of your eyelid. Now run the spoon under hot water.

This will help to create a better curl by transferring heat to your eyelashes. Once the spoon is warmed up, dry it. Now hold the spoon and rest it gently against your lid. The bottom of the spoon should be against your eyelid, and the bowl side should face out.

Now align the spoon edge with your upper lash line. Use your finger and press your lashes against the curve of the spoon. Hold it for thirty seconds. Do the same process for the other eyelashes. After this, apply clear or black mascara to keep the curl in place for the rest of the day.

? Use A Cotton Swab And Mascara

Apply mascara on your eyelashes, and don’t let it dry. It has to be wet for the curl to hold. Now use the cotton bud to push your lashes upward. Keep this position for thirty seconds. By the time this, your mascara will dry, and it will help your lashes to maintain a curled shape.

Set your dryer on warm mode and blow it over your eyelashes. Distance your face from the blow dryer by at least six inches. This will help the curl stay in place longer. Repeat this step with the lower lashes and your other eye.

? Use Your Fingers

Warm them, wet them under warm water, or rub them together. Now wet your upper lashes with little water, take your pointer finger, and push your lashes against the top of your eye.

Hold this position for at least thirty seconds. Repeat the same process with your lower lashes and your other eye. Now apply two coats of mascara and use a wand to lift your lashes. 

? Hold The Curl Using Aloe Vera Gel

Put some Aloe vera gel on your middle finger and rub your thumb finger together to distribute the gel and warm it up. Apply the gel to your upper eyelashes by holding your thumb under it and slowly applying it.

Make sure that the gel is thoroughly applied. Place your finger horizontally under your eyelashes and push it upwards. Hold this position for at least thirty seconds. Repeat this step with the lower lashes and on your other eye.

? Use A Toothbrush

Like we used cotton swabs, you can also use a toothbrush to get curly eyelashes. Apply your mascara and lift your upper eyelashes upwards. Hold this position for 30 seconds. Hold the tips of the lashes upward while your mascara dries. 

? Use Castor Oil

Apply the castor oil on your lashes with a clean eyebrow Spoolie from base to tip. Make it fully coated and hold the tip of the lashes up with the eyebrow Spoolie while the oil absorbs into the base. Castor oil has fatty acids that moisturize the lash hairs, keep eyelashes hydrated, and stay full and lifted.
