Eyelash Curler

Makeup Bag: Five Simple Beauty Must-Haves

Nothing perks up a tired, lackluster face quite like a good eyelash curling. Place it as close as you can get to the very root of your lashes without pinching your eyelid and press firmly for 5-10 seconds. Any good drugstore curler will do, but the springs tend to loosen and lose their efficacy faster than a higher-end version. I like Shiseido’s ($19 at Sephora) because it lasts forever and has no sharp edges.
