It can be a struggle when all you want to do is curl your lashes but every lash curler you find was made with a right hander in mind.

Although eyeliner pens are super convenient and nifty, they were designed with a right-hander in mind. Since you start drawing from the outer part in on your left eye, angled eyeliner pens could produce a bumpy and uneven line. Use a basic eyeliner pencil to line your eyes and consider the eyeliner stamps for the smudge-free cat eye!

2 Avoid Electric Mascara Wands and Lash Curlers

We know you’ve probably been tempted to pick up one of these to make your beauty regime that much shorter and easier. Sorry to break it to you, but these were designed to roll outward. So, if you were to use your left hand, it rolls inwards and basically just leaves your lashes in a mess.

3 Invest in Straight Tip Brushes

Angled brushes are great for when you want that flick to be on fleek but they too were made to move inwards. Unless you have mastered the art of working from inwards to outwards on your left and in reverse on your right, we suggest you use straight-tipped brushes as they’re good for either hand.

4 Learn from a Leftie
