I don’t wear false lashes very much, but I have a few friends who swear by them. They say you can reuse them 5-10 times, but after a while the glue and mascara starts to build up on them and make them yucky! Here is the best method to clean your falsies to get the most use out of them.

You will need:

  • Small bowl or cupLC3
  • Oil based eye makeup remover (or coconut oil or olive oil)
  • Tweezers
  • Tissue

Once you have removed your false lashes, drop them in your small bowl or cup. Pour makeup remover or oil over the lashes until they are completely covered. Let them sit for about an hour or you can even do it overnight. After they have soaked, use your tweezers to gently swish them around in the oil to loosen up any glue and mascara left over on the lashes. Use the tweezers to place the lashes on top of a tissue to help soak up some of the oil, then use the tweezers to pick off the remaining glue. Place a few tissues on top of the lashes and let them sit for an hour or so to absorb any of the leftover oil. This is the last step! The lashes should now be mascara and glue-free!

 

Put the lashes back in the original container to store them! Good as new.
