Best Eyelash Curler: Top 5 Eyelash Curling Tools

best eyelash curlerWhy is it that men always end up naturally blessed with the things women envy? Nice high cheek bones and long, thick, CURLED lashes!  Women have devised countless ways over the years to draw attention to their most expressive asset, their eyes.  We wax, thread, laser or pluck our brows to get the most desirable shape to frame our favorite feature. We employ cosmetic surgeons to lift our lids back to youthfulness and we use products to lengthen, thicken, and enhance our lashes.  Let me count the ways: you can use natural remedies, cosmetic lash conditioners, and lash serums such as Infinite Lash to enhance and promote long luxurious lashes. We apply individual temporary lashes, semi- permanent extensions and a million different styles of strip lashes, which ever suits our fancy at that moment or particular event.  There are mink lashes, silk lashes, synthetic lashes, and human hair lashes, not to mention strips with invisible bands, knot free individuals, one’s made out of feathers, glitter and even ones with 14 karat gold and diamonds. All to draw attention to our eyes, but with each variety of lash application, product and technique they all have one common denominator, you need a lash curler to add the curl!  Now there being so many lash enhancing products, it’s only natural to find an equal number of lash curling apparatuses on the market as well.  Here is a breakdown of the top 5 and why you should never be without one.

Best Eyelash Curler #1 Shu Uemura Classic Lash Curler

By far the most frequently recommended, and most lauded lash curler on the market.  Winning ‘Best Of’ in several different magazine and online polls from such big names as Allure, ELLE, and InStyle this mechanical eye lash curler is the gold standard tool among many a beauty professional.  Made of a soft medical grade stainless steel, it has a deep angled head making it easier to fit along the eye socket.  The wide curve of the head is also what allows for a comfortable fit into the eye area, along with a curved silicone pad. This was the first of its kind when the brand launched its eye lash curler. The ‘mushroom’ shape provides a protective, stay-put edge for improved safety and optimum curl. Upgraded patented hinge with precise engineering applies the perfect amount of pressure on eyelashes.  As with most products used around the delicate eye area the brand suggests cleaning this regularly with alcohol and allowing it to dry completely before use so as not to damage the eye area.  When purchased it comes with 2 silicone pads that should be replaced every 6-8 months.

Best Eyelash Curler #2 Shiseido Lash Curler

Shiseido recently revamped their eye lash curler. This version still has the curved silicone pad and is made of stainless steel.  It also comes with 2 pads and is priced similar to the one listed above.  The difference is more in the shape or curve of the head, the Shiseido eye lash curler has a flatter head, slightly less curve and is said to be easier or better suited to ‘Asian Eyes’ or people with epicanthic folds.  However, persons of any ethnicity or eye shape can use this eye lash curler and get great results from it.  You can also purchase the replacement pads online and from your local Shiseido counter.

Best Eyelash Curler #3 Japonesque Precision Lash Curler

This lash curler is of a slightly different shape than a classic eye lash curler and made of plastic making it lighter weight and less intimidating for some users. It is crafted with a narrow head to curl specific lash sections quickly and with ease. Often used by professionals to secure or merge false lashes with natural ones for a better blend and more staying power. Curl just the outer corners or the entire lash line with more curve and intensity. The non-slip silicone pads ensure no pulling or pinching making it more comfortable to use.  There are also additional lash pads located in the handles of the eye lash curler, the first of its kind to add this feature. No more losing those replacement pads!

Best Eyelash Curler #4 Shu Uemura New Generation S Lash Curler

Very similar in purpose to the Japonesque Precision Lash Curler, the Shu Uemura lash curler is designed with the same medical grade stainless steel as its Classic version with an ergonomic handle, deep angled head and widely curved cage. However, it boasts a narrower cage with no borders allowing you to work your way along the lash or just curl specific sections. It also is the first of its kind to offer silicone ‘buffer’ pads that sit along your lash line, guaranteeing no pinching or tugging on the eye lid.

Best Eyelash Curler #5 Tweezerman Classic Lash Curler

Tweezerman offers a good option for those that want their products to come with a guarantee.  The brand has a life time guarantee on their products that allows you to send your lash curler back to the company if it breaks or you find a defect for any reason.  There are not many companies around now that offer such peace of mind for the consumer. As for the product itself the angle of the head is not as deep as the Shiseido or Shu Uemura version making it lie flatter against the face.   This is the same with the curve of the cage, it lies slightly flatter making it more useful for a flatter eye shape.

As with all of these products there are specific ways to use them in order for you to ensure maximum impact.  An eyelash curler is a must in every woman’s beauty arsenal regardless of if you use mascara or any eye makeup products for that matter.  The curling action lifts the lashes up and fans them out, giving instant lift and shape to the eye.  A lash curler can take 5 years off the ‘age’ of your eye area simply by lifting up the lashes and giving a ‘wide eyed’ appearance.  Rules of use, make sure your lashes are completely dry, wet or damp lashes are heavier and will take longer to curl or may not curl at all.  Fit the cage of the lash curler onto the top lid of the lash, allowing the lash hairs to come through.  Before you press down, if you can see the skin of your upper eyelash you may end up pinching your lid.  Re-adjust so no skin is showing and press down crimping the base, hold for 3-5 seconds and continue repeating these steps with the middle of the lash and the tips. Once the base, middle and tips of the lash are curled, crimp once again at the base to lift and repeat with the other eye. Apply your desired mascara, and remember the more coats of mascara you apply the heavier the lash.  This may affect the curl, making it droop slightly.  If that’s the case try using a curling or waterproof mascara, these formulas tend to be drier making them lighter weight and less likely to weigh down your lashes.

Did you know that only about 24% of your eyelashes ever reach full length? That’s because your lashes will sustain damage from curling, cleansing, wearing makeup and encountering environmental elements over time.
