Heated Eyelash Curlers: Fire Hazard or Smoking Hot Look?

By Sixty and Me December 22, 2016 Beauty

When applying makeup, there are a few features that most women hope to accentuate with their application. Creating the appearance of big, wide-open eyes is commonly a makeup goal for women of all ages.

For women over sixty though, creating this wide-eyed illusion becomes especially important due to the recessed or droopy look that eyes can take on with age.

Celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole is with us today to share a very special product that can help all of us achieve the appearance of fresh, wide-open eyes with ease.

Let’s learn about this magical little tool!


Eyelash Magic

Whether your eyelashes are long, short, thick, or thin, curling them can help open up eyes beautifully.

Ariane tells us that a heated eyelash curler is the perfect tool for achieving that wide-eyed look.

Ariane shares with us an eyelash curler that’s sold on her website and operates on batteries. She explains that the beautiful thing about this curler is that while it does heat up, it never reaches the point of scalding. So, you’re not in any danger of burning your delicate lids.

The biggest difference between this curler and the pinching kind, aside from the heat, is that you apply your mascara prior to curling.

With a heated eyelash curler, your mascara almost acts as a setting lotion for your lashes. You simply wait for the curler to heat up, apply a normal coat of mascara, and hold the curler against your lashes. Voila! Perfectly curled lashes!

Why Curl Your Lashes?

Curling your eyelashes works wonders for opening and brightening your eyes.

Whether you’ve got straight lashes or lashes that have a bit of natural curve to them, this tool will give you that perfect bend that you’re looking for.

It’s important to choose a heated eyelash curler that achieves that perfect level of heat. Too hot and you will end up burnt. Too cool and you could get the same effect from using your finger. Ariane’s heated eyelash curler, available on, offers a gentle and effective level of heat to give you perfectly curled lashes.

Windows to the Soul

Many people say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Eyes are also often the focal point of your entire face.

Unfortunately, as we age, our eyes can tend to droop or recede into our face. But with the help of a heated eyelash curler, your eyes don’t have to fade into the background.

We all want the world to see what beautiful peepers we possess. Do just that with a heated eyelash curler!

What was your first thought when you saw today’s topic – heated eyelash curler? Now that you know what this device is really about, would you try it on yourself? We look forward to your questions and comments.
