HOW TO APPLY THE FALSE LASHES ?
Before you apply your false eyelashes, make sure that the eyelash adhesive that you’re planning to use is appropriate for your skin and eyes, so as to avoid getting allergic reactions.
Usually, eyelash adhesives (i.e. lash glues) come with instructions. Read them carefully and follow it for the best results.
Wait for the eyelash glue to dry a bit before applying your falsies.
You can bend the false lashes lightly, just to give it some flexibility, so that it seamlessly glues down along the band of your natural eyelashes.
It’s always good to press down lightly on your lashes altogether, just to make sure that the false eyelashes that you’ve applied are properly attached to your natural eyelashes.
And you’re done! Now you’re all ready to be the belle at the ball, whether it’s a ball that you’re going to or just a brunch date with your girlfriends.
HOW TO GO ABOUT REMOVAL AND PROPER CARE ?
You’re home and tired, it is the end of the day, and you might feel like just ripping off your falsies so that you can go to bed as fast as possible. We totally understand, who wouldn’t want to do that?
While this can be the easiest and fastest thing to do, we still recommend that you take off your makeup and double cleanse your face, preferably with an oil-based cleanser first to remove your makeup, followed by a water-based cleanser, that will leave your face feeling squeaky clean.
This includes removing your eye-makeup carefully and with a makeup remover that is not harsh on your eyelids. If you’ve applied mascara, it can be easily removed with either lukewarm water or coconut oil.
After removing all your makeup, it’s time to remove your false eyelashes. You can easily remove them with your hands by gently pulling them off from your eyelash band.
Now we have to think about proper storage. Don’t we all find ourselves turning the house upside down, trying to find the other false lash, with just one false lash in our hands? We highly recommend taking off your false eyelashes properly, cleaning them and storing them in their original packaging so that you don’t lose them!
