People say that eyes are the window of the soul. Hence, women do everything to make their eyes look more beautiful, bigger, colored with perfect eye shadow designed to enhance natural eyes color, and so on. In fact, place a woman in a makeup store which sells eye enhancer products and I bet she will be as happy as a child whom enters candy stores.
One of the focuses in enhancing eyes beauty is eyelash. There are two tools that must not be forgotten when women need to beautify their eyelashes. One is mascara, the second eyelash curler. But, actually, what is eye lash curler? And, how do we use it?
Eye lash curler is a mechanical device, shaped almost similar like a hybrid of scissors hands which have head like a clamp. Each upper and lower part of the clamp has rubbery pad used to prevent eyelash from being yanked out. Regular eyelash curlers are made of solid metal. The clamp is usually formed like a U-shape and comes in different sizes or curvatures. It is used for cosmetic purpose. By putting the eyelash to the curler head and clamp them, the eyes look more opened, dramatic and wide.
The history of eyelash curler itself can be traced back to around 1930. However, right now, there are more patented designs, which is quite promising as women have different eyes sizes and shapes thus, need wide variety of eyelash curlers.
Regular size, manual, all metal, mechanical eyelash curler is the most common. It can be used both unheated and heated by hair dryer. When purchasing this kind of eyelash curler, you must always remember to ask whether the brand has rubber pad replacement. Otherwise, by the time the rubber pad gets dry, you must buy the new tool which can be pricey. In addition to that, as the body of the tool is made from solid metal, it is suggested to use the one that is nickel free to prevent allergy reaction (for some people). Some models also have their body portion encapsulated in rubber to give extra grip when holding. One of the brands being recommended is Oriflame because of its reasonable price at around US 4, high quality and nickel-free.
Mini size, manual, all metal, mechanical eyelash curler is a magic tool for dealing with small eyes, or fragile eyelash, which is common for Asian women. The most sought after brand is Shu Uemura. Together with its regular size, this tool is versatile. They complement each other to cover even the most difficult eyelash found in the corner of the eye. Its price ranges from US 17 into US 24 for 24-K gold plated. Off course, it can be higher when it is imported to several countries.
Electrical eyelash curler comes in varied size. It is still operated manually so do not imagine some automatic device. The battery is needed so it is able to keep the clamp-head rubber pad heated enough so eyelashes can be curled much easier. The result is long-lasting. This kind of curler usually has their body made from heat-resistant material or plastic thus, not shaped in regular scissors-like metal. The well known brand is Talika. Unfortunately, the price comes a bit higher, around US 37.
Though many brands offer variety of eyelash curler, the usage is pretty much the same. Hence, it is advisable to choose according to customer needs and budget.
