Were you unaware like me that your hairdryer is helpful for things other than drying your hair?
Using your hairdryer on high heat, hit your eyelash curler for about 5 seconds. Touch the metal curler to your inner wrist to make sure it's not too hot and then proceed to curl your eyelashes as usual. I tried this neat little trick this morning and the results were pretty dramatic- not that thats me below mind you but you get the idea ; ). Happy curling!
