Step 3: Gently hold the curler against your upper lash line. Ensure that you don’t crimp if the skin of your upper lash line is visible because you may end up pinching the delicate skin there. A better option would be to position the curler again so that the skin is not visible.
Step 4: This step is very crucial; lightly press down the curler in close proximity to the upper lash base. Hold it there for about 3 seconds and then do the same thing in the middle and on the tips of your eyelash. That done it’s time to crimp again at the base.
