Men who encounter the eyelash curler for the first time seem to be a bit confused. It is probably because it resembles scissors. Generally, it does not raise any positive feelings, that’s why men are usually surprised that women so willingly use this ‘torture device’. Let’s check if the eyelash curler really is safe for eyelashes, or is it really harmful?

How it works?

Obviously, the eyelash curler’s task is to curl our eyelashes. Put your eyelashes between the eyelash clamps and gently close it. Thanks to this, they are nicely shaped, curled and look much better when painted.
