Does curling your eyelashes every day weaken them?

I curl my eyelashes every morning before applying mascara. Done this for several years now. Recently I have noticed that I seem to be getting lots of shorter lashes amongst the longer ones, and it looks a bit rubbish! Do you think that the eyelash curling is responsible for weakening/breaking them? Any suggestions for alternatives, as they just sit flat if I don't curl.
Thanks

I always thought it did. I save it for special occasions. I always seem to lose a lash when I do it, and I don't have any to spare!

Not ime, I've done it every day since the 80's grin

Nope, not mine either. I don't do it everyday anymore but I used to (before DC obvs)

I warm mine with the hair-dryer first so I don't have to do it as hard & I also do small pinches from the tip all the way down so they're only small 'pince-nez' squeezes.

Thought that might help - you probably already do that smile

When I was a teenager I went through a phase of curling before applying mascara...and lost all the eyelashes on one eye. Not entirely sure if it was connected but suffice to say that I've stepped away from the curler since then.

I go for the full on clamp every morning! Maybe I should try the more gentle approach! Have thought about a mascara that curls but no idea if any goodhmm
