Make Them Last Longer

If I am out and about with makeup on, most likely I am wearing false eyelashes. Natural lashes are wonderful, but I love adding some drama to my lashes!

I try to get as many wears out of my lashes as I can. Today’s post is all about how I like to clean my false lashes and keep them lasting as long as possible!

Gather your items! All you need is some eye makeup remover, a few Q-tips, a pair of tweezers, a paper towel, and of course, your lashes! Tweezers with the finest/most pointy tip will work the best!

Step One

Pour some makeup remover in the cap. It’s easier that way! Dip the Q-tip into the makeup remover until it is soaking wet.

Any makeup remover will do. I find that it is much easier to use an oil-based makeup remover than oil-free. The oil helps to remove/loosen the glue! I usually get mine from Target, which is around $4.99.

Step Two

Take the (soaked in oil) Q-tip and rub along the lash line of the lashes. I like to repeat this set three to four times until I feel like the glue is completely saturated and starts to slowly loosen.

Step Three

Take your tweezers and start to pull the glue away at the lash line of the lashes. You want to be VERY careful while doing this because this is where you can rip apart the entire lash.

Step Four

After you have removed most of (if not all) the glue, you can lightly dip another Q-tip in the remover and remove some of the built-up mascara that has accumulated on the eyelash. Simply run your Q-tip in strokes going from the lash line of the eyelashes to the tips of the lashes.

You never want to go in the direction toward the lash line— that will only ruin your lashes and cause damage to them!

Doing this to your lashes every two to three wears really helps them to last a lot longer. Removing the glue will help create a more flawless and natural look when you apply them!
