Curling Eyelashes

Crazy, I know. I’m sure curling your eyelashes wasn’t something that you knew you could use a spoon to do, oh but it is, and it’s amazing!

Take the spoon and face it downwards.

You’re going to place the spoon on top of the eyelashes, and have your thumb under the lashes. To curl, think of those times when you’re curling a ribbon, but instead of moving the eyelashes, you’re going to stroke your thumb across the thumb. This motion causes the lashes to be squeezed in between the thumb and the edge of the spoon and curling it!

And, voila! Curled lashes!

Repeat this along the lash line until you get the desired curl. This method might even be more effective than using an eyelash curler!




Mascara Shield

Isn’t is one of the most frustrating things to have done all that blending and your eyeshadow is perfection, then you get mascara smudged on it?!

Here’s a lifesaving trick. Press the spoon against the eyelid just above the lashline, then apply mascara.

Reduce Puffy Eyes

Put your spoon in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Then hold the curved, underside of the cold spoon under your eyes for about 1 minute. Replace the now warmed spoon with another cold spoon if eyes are still puffy and repeat.

The cold temperature of the spoon helps to tighten up the skin around your eyes and relax the blood vessels, therefore reducing the puffiness surrounding the eyes and on the eye bags. It will also help with brightening the under eye.

So there you go, you’re all ready!
