Ever since we started in the world of mascaras and eyeliners, the humble eyelash curler has earned a much-loved place in our makeup kit. Even on the days when we’re going au naturel, before we head out the door we often stop in front of the mirror to give our lashes a quick squeeze with the curler.

What you may not be aware of though, is you may have been using the tool wrong all of these years! Raedawn Johnson, freelance makeup artist, shows us how to properly use a curler to get the most out of the tool.

To give your eye a subtle pop of color, start with a brown shadow (Raedawn is using Julie Hewett’s brunette shadow) with a fluffy shadow brush applied only in the crease of the eye for more definition. Use a stiff tapered brush and make sure youre blending the shadow into your crease to soften the look.

When using an eyelash curler its very important to not just clamp it on your lashes, but to walk the eyelash curler out. Slowly walk the curler out to the end of the lashes as opposed to just clamping it down and ending up with a harsh curl to your lashes.
