HEAT UP YOUR LASH CURLER

Zoë Ruderman, Senior Style Editor: When I lived in Mexico, I tried to master the technique women there use: curling their lashes with a spoon. But I never could so I adopted this move, which works even better in my opinion: Hit your curler with a hairdryer (set on low) for a few seconds before using it. You'll get a more defined, longer-lasting curl.
