How to keep your false eyelashes clean

FALSE lashes truly complete any makeup look. Whether you choose subtle lashes or the more dramatic, come hither ones, you’re bound to want to extend the life of your lashes such that you’re not buying new ones every time you need to wear falsies.

With a little care you can rewear your false lashes and keep from breaking the bank.

Below are some simple steps to help you clean your false lashes without ruining them.

1. Remove the excess glue

Once you’ve removed your false lashes, use a pair of tweezers to carefully remove the excess glue. Gently peel off the glue from the band.

2. Clean them

Dip a cotton bud in micellar water and use it to remove mascara from your lashes. Do this gently, several times to ensure that all the mascara comes off. You can also use the cotton bud to remove excess lash glue.

3. Leave them to dry

Once your lashes are clean, lay them down carefully to dry. You can let them dry on their own or use a paper towel to gently dab off the excess moisture.

When they have dried, put them back in the box they came in to keep them clean and help them keep their shape.
