How to use eyelash curlers

I have short eyelashes, and on reading another article, took your advice and bought some eyelash curlers. The problem is that I cannot get a good result... my eyelashes still seem really tiny! Do they really work? How do I use them properly?

We cannot promise miracles: As the name suggests, this tool curls your lashes, for that wide-eyed look. They will not make your lashes longer, but the trick is to make the most of what you have. In order to use them correctly, stand in front of a mirror: Pinch open the curlers and close them over your lashes, as close to the roots as possible, hold for approximately ten seconds. If you have curlers with rubber pads, heat them gently under a hairdryer for a better curl - but be careful not to overheat them as you don't want to burn the sensitive eye area. Follow with two coats of mascara, paying special attention to the lashes at the outer coner of your eyes.
