The Holy Grails #4: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Welcome to another Holy Grail post! This post, is a serious one. I mean it, eyelash curlers to me are the most important part of my everyday make up routine.

Lemme give you a bit of background. Ever since the tender age of 14, when I started wearing make up, I have owned and used eyelash curlers. Thats 10 years of curling my friends. I have gone through almost every single brand, from Superdrug to MAC. I have tried and tested them all (well almost). As someone who suffers with short stumpy straight lashes, I don't go a day without curling and finding the perfect curlers became a bit of a life goal for me. I found them though guys. The Shu Uemura eyelash curlers changed my life!

I don't know how they do it, I don't know how they differ to normal curlers, but they curl like no other! My curl keeps all day, looks natural (not like that awful sharp curl you sometimes can get that looks a bit like an L) and only takes about 30 seconds per eye. I really have nothing else to say, apart from these are seriously best. Take it from someone who's eyelashes are impossibly short and incredibly hard to make it look like I have any at all. I find the best technique with these is to press for about 30 seconds straight (I actually have two pairs so I can do both eyes at the same time - looks strange but saves me precious time) and then go back if needed. I find with eyelashes, it is best to curl if they are completely dry (no moisturiser or cleanser on them or the curl won't hold). Of course I curl prior to mascara although I have been known to go back over when I've got mascara on. I know its a beauty blogger sin but to be honest I've never lost eyelashes because of it. 

They are seriously worth the £20 price tag. I can't go without them and for me, if my house was burning down and I had to save ONE item of make up, it would be these. They make me look awake, alive and ready to face the day and I thank them for changing my make up life for 5 years now.

  2. The best curlers on the market. I have thick, totally flat lashes and Shu Uemura curlers are the only ones that make a difference. Worth every penny!

  3. I remember you curling your eye-lashes Kayleigh when you used to come and stay with us. And yes you are correct. It was round about the age of fourteen when you first started to curl them. You used to sit on the settee and do them. I love this blog so much. You make everything so interesting, even eye-lash curlers. xxx
