My Quest for the Perfect Eyelash Curler for Asian Eyes - Find the One

Best eyelash curler for Asian eyes

Lately I have been trying to apply makeup to not create some alter ego but to try to find ways to just enhance my natural features. And nothing gets the job done better than curling my eyelashes. Some people are blessed with long and fully curled eyelashes, but mine is rather short and straight. Curling my lashes is like a grand finale to my makeup, and without it I feel like I did nothing. (I know many people apply false lashes and they really do look amazing, but I personally find it really cumbersome to not only apply them but also to take care of them, and finding the perfect one that fits my asian eyes was never an easy task.)

Anyhow, since I was a teenager, I have accumulated and used more than dozens of eyelash curlers, and I have developed multiple methods to curl the front and ends of my eyelashes using curlers that never quite seemed to fit. Of these eyelash curlers, the most popular ones for asian eyes were from Shu Uemura and Shiseido--but I did not find these to be particularly better than cheaper alternatives.

So few weeks back when I couldn't find my eyelash curler and I was left feeling completely hopeless and did not want to put on any makeup whatsoever, I immediately ran to the nearest store and got myself an eyelash curler from Laura Mercier. I have never used a plastic kind of curler and was aware that this will not last me as long as those steel-like ones, but I was feeling adventurous and decided to give it a try. And boy was I impressed! It literally lifts my eyelashes and usually they'd droop like in seconds but for some unknown bizarre reason, this one from Laura Mercier keeps my eyelashes lifted all day long, even after I apply heavy coats of mascara.





What's more crazy to me is that this eyelash curler seemed to work perfectly on every one of my friends. Usually finding the perfect eyelash curler involves finding the one that matches the curvature and the length of your eyes, but this one seems to make that some unnecessary bullsh*t and can be used on all shapes and sizes. Granted I can't get all of my lashes lifted with one squeeze and I do divided my lashes into thirds, but it's been that way with all other curlers I have used in the past and this is by far the most versatile of them all.

This is $16 and is a complete miracle worker for me. I don't care if this plastic curler breaks down in a month, and I am not even upset that it doesn't come with spare rubber inserts. And because I can't imagine my life without this pure magic, I bought a spare one just to be safe. It's THAT good :)

I hope you found this to be helpful, and please let me know what your favorite eyelash curler is!

XOXO,
