Eyelash Curler vs Heated EyeLash Curlers


“If there is one thing you must do as a beauty staple, whether you wear a little or a lot of makeup, use an eyelash curler. A good eyelash curler will open the eyes, multiply the appearance of the lashes, and bring great emphasis and freshness to the eyes.” An eyelash or simply lash is one of the hair that grow at the edge of our eyelids. Eyelashes protect our eye from debris and perform the same function as whiskers do on a cat or a mouse in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched or any other animals with similar protective hair, thus providing a warning that an object is near the eye.

However, it is very important to be cautious of the heat you warm it up to so that it doesn’t burn. To avoid the dangers of burning the eyelid from the metal curler many companies have introduced the plastic based curlers and to further advance that some of the companies are looking into introducing the self-heated curlers to control the amount of heat and completely avoid the burn.
