I don't know if fear of eyelash curlers is eccentric foible of mine or fairly common, but the idea of wielding a metal implement up close to my eyes has never struck me as a good idea. A few years ago, a makeup artist - clearly bemused that I tend not to wear makeup - once told me to use an eyelash curler even if I did nothing else. Yes, but how? Now after watching this demonstration by our resident makeup expert, Kristen Arnett, I might even be willing to give it a go.
