What is an Eye Lash Curler?

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.

Lashing Out

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” -Wayne DyerEizeh

When someone verbally insults you or attacks you what is the first thing you want to do? Attack back? Lash out? Defend yourself? Or cry? Of course your initial reaction is going to be just that, a re-action to someone who is trying to hurt you. This has always been a tough one for me personally because I get so incensed that someone could be so cruel, rude, unfair or just plain vicious.

For years I’ve struggled with these unconscionable types, I can hear myself saying, I can’t believe they did that, or how could they say something so mean, or how can people be so rude, how can they look at themselves in the mirror and think it’s okay to be them? And on and on.

To this day it unnerves me and I want to scream but as my mom used to say, “They act that way because that is who they are, just because YOU wouldn’t act that way doesn’t mean they won’t, accept it and move on.” Ah, the wise old words of our mothers. But, it’s not always easy to do, is it?

When you are hurting many times you want to lash out and hurt someone back, you want to defend yourself and prove them wrong, you may even want the last word and this is where you get yourself into trouble.

When you respond from a highly charged emotional place don’t expect the outcome to be good. Nine times out of ten you will probably regret your actions and wish you could take them back. You’ll wish you had said this and beat yourself up for not saying it when you had the chance. You may even go as far as justifying what you said or did, but the thing you have to remember is you just stooped to their level.

You don’t like what they did or how they acted and you just did exactly what you don’t like. When you bring yourself down to that ugly, negative, toxic level and lose your composure it may give you immediate gratification but it won’t last. Plus, this wonderful person who just hurt you is happy they could elicit such an electric response and they know they got you.

Instead, breathe. Take deep long breaths and let some time pass to cool down and then put it into perspective. This is a good time to call in the troops, i.e. your family and friends; they always have a way of setting you straight. Know that you are above that kind of behavior and you have more class and integrity than that. Even if you have to bite your tongue off, it’s not worth responding.

Most of the time, no matter what you say is going to fall on deaf ears anyway. You don’t actually think this person cares or is going to see it your way do you? So the reality is you are just wasting your time. You are better off taking high road. Hold your head high and thank God/Allah/Your Higher Power that you aren’t them. Then get on your hands and knees and be thankful they are out of your life.

Release them from your thoughts, forgive them and pray for them because most nasty people are really hurting deep down inside. So, the next time someone decides it’s okay to lash out at you, if you hold your cards close to your chest, you’re more likely to win the game.
