The famed Shu Uemura eyelash curler is all that its cracked up to be. A few seconds of "pumping" your lashes with this magical curler is all you need. The lashes are curled even with those with super straight lashes like me. I highly recommend the investment in this curler. The way it curls does not cause an unnatural bend in the lashes either so it does not look forced up.
This is a special lash curler b/c of its ergonomic design and it follows the natural curve of your eyes. I use this lash curler and then two coats of the too faced mascara. My short lashes look longer, fuller, and it stays put all day. To get a more dramatic effect, try curling your lashes then putting on a lash primer like the smashbox lash primer followed by a volumizing mascara. This will surely give you gorgeous lashes.
