So, we called in makeup educator James Vincent to teach our editorial assistant Vanessa how to overcome her fear and get the lashes of her dreams. Turns out, it's not that hard, nor does it involve any of the potentially painful scenarios we were envisioning. James also gives some helpful tips for people who regularly curl their lashes, so even if you don't think a lash curler looks like something from Game of Thrones, there's some useful info in this video for you, too.
Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler, $20, available at Nordstrom.
