Girls, today I’ll deal with the most pissing me off myth about false eyelashes. The gadgets are widely-available and amazingly define every makeup yet we still know little about using them the right way.
I started wearing false lashes a few years ago. I used to think that a good mascara is enough. Since I first put on fake eyelashes, I have been applying them before every big night out. At the beginning of my makeup adventure, I thought that false eyelashes were single-use. That’s why I would buy the cheapest ones because I didn’t want to spend too much money. Many times I had to spend a lot of time cutting them and adjusting to my natural lashes and then… threw them out. Summing up:
Are False Eyelashes Single-Use? NO!
I bet you wonder how it is possible to reuse lashes that have mascara and glue buildup, and bend in all directions. If we pay lots of money for a set of false lashes, we should learn how to keep them clean. Even though it takes time – you clean them every time you take them off – it’s worthwhile. Especially, when you pay for the lashes more than for a pair of leather shoes. I believe in caring for expensive things. Here comes a question, though…
How to Clean False Eyelashes? NOTHING EASIER!
After many trials, I found the simplest way and will share it with you. You will save time you would have to spend soaking lashes and combing impurities out. My method is easier – you should try it out!
- Use tweezers to take the adhesive leftovers off the strips.
- Soak two cotton pads in makeup remover.
- Place your false lashes between the pads.
- Gently press the lashes and leave them this way for up to 2 minutes.
- Take the pads off (the mascara should stay on them).
- Place the lashes on a clean pad. Soak a cotton swab in the remover.
- Remove the remaining mascara and dirt with the swab.
- You can comb out the lashes with a clean (scalded) mascara wand.
Store false eyelashes in the original packaging to keep their shape!
