Can You Reuse False Lashes?
As much as we all love false lashes, they can be expensive and they don’t last forever. Fortunately, we have some tips and tricks to extend the lifetime of your Dollar Lash Club falsies. Let us give you the low down.
As you may have noticed, there are so many different types of false lashes. Natural fiber lashes such as our mink lashes last longer than their synthetic counterparts, however the bands on strip lashes also make a difference, the thicker the more durable!
Construction and materials of strip lashes aside, the way you care for your lashes also affect how long they last. Here are five tips to extend the wear of your false lashes.
Tip 1: Pull Them Off Gently
Instead of yanking off your falsies at the end of the day, use a cotton swab soaked in an oil-free makeup remover or micellar water and run it over the band. Once the glue loosens, you can pull them off gently starting from the outer corners
Tip 2: Opt For Micellar Water
Although makeup removers are perfectly fine to use for false eyelashes, micellar water is a gentler alternative. It works for both synthetic and mink lashes and are great for removing mascara or glue from your falsies.
Tip 3: Don’t Add Mascara
Or, if you must, apply mascara to your own lashes before applying falsies. Not applying mascara will help your lashes last longer and prevent them from excessive buildup.
Tip 4: Clean Your Lashes After Each Wear
As much as you want to leave your lashes on your bathroom counter, cleaning them after wearing them is extremely important. It prevents glue and mascara from clumping and helps your lashes maintain its shape. To learn how to properly clean your lashes, refer to this article: How To Clean False Lashes [Step by Step Guide].
Tip 5: Store Your Lashes Properly
After you dry your lashes out on a paper towel, make sure to store them in a place that is safe. Any countertop is off limits by the way. Keep the handy dandy Dollar Lash Club box that your lashes came in and store them inside. Our DLC lashes come with a plastic insert that is perfect for you to mold your lashes to and maintain their shape.
