  1. Award winning eyelash curler.

Here we are again, still at the beach! We’re having coffee this time as it is quite early in the morning. Today I’m sharing one of my beauty secrets for the beach, vol.II.  When I want to look completely natural but add a little extra something that gives me confidence, my go-to secret is to use an eyelash curler! Not just any one, but this specific eyelash curler.

There is only one word to describe this beauty tool; iconic. Shu Uemura's eyelash curler is a cult classic for years and years now. It has been tried and tested by many makeup artists and celebrities worldwide and can last for a lifetime if you take good care of it. 

Japanese products are known for their performance and precision and this one is no exception. It has been in my kit for the past six years and it worth every single penny. The only thing that needs replacing is the silicon pad every six months according to the company, but I have found that it can last way longer than that. Just be careful if using the pad longer than recommended, it will split open and it might slightly damage your lashes.

We have tried plenty of eyelash curlers throughout the years but most of them don’t give that wide awake effect right after curling the lashes. The most important thing with this curler is that you can get away without mascara if you are going for that all natural look. Most importantly, its ergonomic handle and design suits all eye shapes and sizes. It is truly a well-thought product, tested and redeveloped throughout years of experience. It is already known that if something is not good we do not hype about it, but if it is we make sure to let you know!

It curls and lifts even the thinnest and shortest of eyelashes and this is what makes it so special. It is one of the best in the world and this is not just me telling you, you can go ahead and do further research for this award-winning product! It works wonders. 

Before you use it and before you use any sort of eyelash curler, make sure to not only read the instructions and watch some tutorials but also ask someone that has done this prior, to show you what’s the best way to do it, to prevent any eye poking experiences! We know because we’ve done this in the past too! Also, make sure to first curl your lashes and then apply mascara! Trust me, we learn from our mistakes. We don't want anyone ending up with half the eyelashes chopped off. This might be one of the best tools in the world, but if you don’t use it properly there is no point! 

There is a particular way that you curl your eyelashes properly instead of “folding” them upwards, and this is to gradually curl your lashes from bottom to top. It takes a bit of practice but the result are entirely worth it and can last for quite a long time. This is even greater when you add a good mascara on top like these ones here. If you try it, please let me know your thoughts!

I sometimes even use it when I am at home to lift not only my lashes but my mood too. It is true that when you look good, you feel good.
