Pick a curler that fits the curve of your eyes, squeeze onto lashes and sweep with mascara for a more dramatic window to the soul.

Skinfood Eyelash Up Gold (HK$55)

Works well on eyes of all sizes, and is especially good on short eye lashes. Squeeze three times - by the lid, in the middle and by the tips - for perfectly natural looking curves. Great price.

The Body Shop Eye Lash Curler (HK$59)

Fits the average Asian eye perfectly. Easy to use, and the soft, thick pad protects your lashes. You might have to use it several times for a long-lasting effect, though.

Missha Perfect Eyelash Curler (HK$38)

These slightly basic looking curlers are fairly effective, especially for the price. They're quite wide, though, so better for those blessed with big eyes.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (HK$100)

These reasonably priced curlers perfectly fit the average Asian eye. You have to squeeze quite hard to curl lashes, but they tend to stay in shape for hours. Be careful, though and avoid catching your eyelid.

Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler (HK$150)

At last, proof eyelash curlers don't need to look like medieval torture devices to work. A simple, purse-friendly design that makes curling your lashes a breeze.
