Welcome back to my blog friends! Thank you as always for stopping by. Today we are going to talk about something that is a real pain. Cleaning false eyelashes. Cleaning falsies is just one of those annoying time taking tasks. But I have come up with an easy foolproof way to clean them and keep them in the best shape they can be. If you are someone who wears falsies almost everyday like I do it can be quite expensive to wear a new pair everyday. But if you clean and store them properly you can wear the same pair over and over again.
Step One: Pick Off the Glue!
This is annoying but at the same time so satisfying. Start out by gently taking off the glue on the lash strip using tweezers. Once the glue is fully removed from the lash strip you’re good to go.
Step Two: Soak Them
And by soak…I mean very very minimally. Take a cotton round an thoroughly wet it with micellar water or your favorite eye makeup remover (AVOID OIL BASED MAKEUP REMOVERS!) If you use an oily makeup remover..game over. It will just turn into a hot mess. My favorite thing to use is either the Garnier micellar water or the bioderm. Place the last on the cotton round and put another cotton round, with the micellar water, on top. Gently press and repeat.
Step Three: Spot Clean
If you have any leftover mascara or residue, take a Q-Tip and dip it into the micellar water and very gently brush against the lashes. I always do this step because I wear my lashes hard. I always have mascara or glue or god knows what attached to the lashes so I always need that extra spot clean to get the final product build up off.
Step Four: Brush
You can skip this step it’s not totally necessary but when I clean my falsies I put them through the wringer. I take a spoolie and gently brush the lashes
Step Five: Dry
Now I take the lash and I put them back into their little case and let them dry. I usually have multiple pairs of false eyelashes so I rotate them but if you only have 1 pair they don’t take very long to dry. I usually let mine dry for at least 24 hours.
Before and After!!
