Before applying mascara, when eyelashes are clean and dry (wet ones post-shower won't hold a curl), position the curler at the root of the lashes and give three firm, gentle pumps. Release and repeat—holding it steady doesn't create a natural-looking, fluid curl. For even better curl, heat your curler with your blow-dryer for 15 seconds first. "The warmth holds the bend better," says makeup artist Mally Roncal.
