How To Clean False Lashes [Step by Step Guide]
Although we don’t believe that beauty should cost you an arm and a leg, we know that there are false lashes that can be pretty costly. That is why we believe in preserving your lashes for as long as you can so that you can stretch out that dollar. You know what they say, a dollar saved is a dollar earned. Here are some tips to keep your lashes clump-free and as pristine as the day you bought them.
Step 1: Removing the Lashes
We’ve all been there. After a night of clubbing, all you want to do is rip your lashes off and call it a night. Good news, peeling off your false lashes are actually safer than clamping or yanking them with tweezers which can seriously damage your fake lashes -- not to mention your, you know, eye. But there is an appropriate way to peel off your lashes and FYI, ripping them off with your dirty fingers after the club is not the right way to do it.
So how do you do it? First, wash your hands with antibacterial soap. Next, gently peel off your lashes starting from the outer corner. If you’re using bunches of individual lashes, take them off section by section. Lastly, do not be tempted to pick off the leftover glue with your fingers or else you might pick off your real lashes along with it. Instead, use a cotton swab with makeup remover to clean the remaining glue from your real lashes.
Step 2: Cleaning the Lashes
Cleaning the mascara and glue off of your falsies will prevent it from clumping overnight and of course, stay in tip top shape. Using a clean spoolie dipped in micellar water, slowly comb the lashes out. The micellar water will help break down the mascara, ensuring that every last bit is removed. To remove any glue, use a cotton swab and gently rub it against the lashes.
We recommend micellar water because it is gentle on your falsies. However, you can also use alcohol or oil-free eye makeup remover. Focus on the bands because they tend to get pretty gross. The last step is to dry your lashes out on a paper towel. Never squeeze your lashes because this can seriously damage them.
Step 3: Storing the Lashes
Now you’re probably wondering where you should keep your falsies. Well, do you remember that handy box that the fake eyelashes came in? Use it. The plastic insert that comes with our DLC falsies are perfect for you to keep them in great shape.
While it may feel a little excessive to go through all of these steps to properly care for your false lashes, going through this guide will help your false eyelashes last longer. In the long run, this will save you so much money so trust us, it’s worth it.
