Today's Flawless Tip: Eyelash curlers are usually used to achieve the curled eyelash effect before applying any mascara on the eyelashes. Some people do find it painful and uneasy, so there is another simpler way out. Take a plastic spoon which is sturdy and place it under your eyelashes to push the eyelid upward. It won't curl as much as the eyelash curler but does give you a bit of lift. Using a clear mascara before the spoon curling, gives the eyelashes some texture so when you push it to curl with the spoon, it just looks a little more lifted and holds it slightly more in place.
