Cleanliness is important

First things first, you need to make sure that you always your hands and any tools you are using are washed effectively before handling all false eyelashes, this inclusive of tweezers and eyelash curlers. Washing your hands and the tools you use helps as a prevention measure from the risk of infections caused by dirt and germs, we wouldn’t want that, since eyes are very precious, thus we were to protect them in every way possible.

Handle with care

Always make sure to use tweezers or a lash applicator to gently remove the false lashes from the tray they come in. You would need to begin by peeling the band away from the outer corner, make sure that you slowly peel all the way along the band. Make sure that you hold your tweezer at the base of the false lash on the band. Take note to not pull away from the lash from the band, as they can easily pull the lashes themselves away from the band. The lashes are much more fragile. Take precautionary measures when handling the lashes from the offset as this will ensure that the full set of mink lashes stay intact and last as long as possible.

Sticking together

The best you can do here is to be sure to invest in a high-quality, reliable lash adhesive. We recommend adhesive glue which is available in both clear tones and provides a comfortable yet long-lasting hold of your lashes. If you opt to go for a cheaper glue, you are risking not only your glamorous and fabulous look, but it could also be damaging to your skin and the lash itself. And thus reduce its longevity.

Trimming the extras

A simple, but essential step to effectively applying your fake lashes is to ensure they are the correct size to fit your eyelids. Gently pick up the lash strip and hold it against your eyes, if the band hangs off the edge of your eyelid, carefully trim a small amount of the band. Less is more though. You can always trim more off if it’s still too long, but you can’t undo the snip, so cut carefully.

Less is definitely more

One thing to avoid here is to not apply too much adhesive, as over-layering glue will make it much more challenging to remove as it accumulates into very thick layers. We recommend the use of a thin, evenly spread layer, across the entire band of the lash. Leave the glue to dry slightly, so it becomes entirely consistent. Make sure to gently apply the lash just on top of your own lashes, placing the inner corner as close to the corner of your own lashes as possible. Accuracy increases the beauty.

When do I apply the lashes

The number one rule is to always apply your lashes after you have applied your face and eye makeup. Look at it this way, getting eyeliner, eyeshadow and other makeup on the lashes means that you may not be able to reuse them. They will be dirty and definitely germ infested at that point. Try to always make sure that applying your false lashes is the last step in your makeup routine.

Cake your mink lashes is a definite No!

This is also very important, don’t apply mascara directly to the false eyelashes, this will definitely not only change their appearance, but it will also defect their shape and ruin their quality. If you want to wear mascara as well as false eyelashes, then we always suggest applying a thin coat to your natural lashes before applying the falsies.

When it is time to take it off

When removing your strip lashes, we recommend using the same initial method of removing the lashes with tweezers or an applicator as you would remove them from the tray. Start at the outer edge again, and gently peel the lash away from the eye, be cautious of the skin and making sure you pull from the band and not the lash tips.

If there is a need to, you can also use some baby oil on a cotton bud to gently swipe along the lash band to break up and loosen the adhesive. The lashes should then slide off much more easily.

Clean it up

Once you have carefully removed the lashes from your eyes, the next step is removing as much adhesive from the lash band as possible. Start with getting cotton or reusable swabs, clean towels, and either rubbing alcohol or oil-free eye makeup remover. Place the false lashes on a clean towel and douse the end of your cotton swab in alcohol or eye makeup remover, squeezing off any excess product. Use the cotton swab to gently rub away eye makeup and glue from your lashes, making sure to pay extra attention to the lash bands, which usually get pretty gross. Finish the makeup removal process by using another cotton swab dipped in warm water to clean off any remaining mascara. Gently peel off any remaining eyelash glue.

Never squeeze your false lashes dry after cleaning them. Arrange them back into their original shape and let them air dry on a towel.

Say no to soaking

Cleaning the lash band is essential for those that reuse their lashes quite frequently as it eliminates any potential build-up of bacteria, as well as any makeup residue. We recommend using a gentle eye makeup remover that is suitable for sensitive skin.

Pour a small amount onto the tip of a cotton bud and gently wipe the cotton bud along with the lash band. Repeat this step until both fake lashes are clean and free from adhesive, makeup, and germs. Fully submerging or soaking your lashes in water, makeup remover, alcohol, or any other liquid can cause damage. 

Storage in a cool dry place

One of the final but most important steps in taking care of your lashes is finding a safe and convenient place to store them. You can simply just pop them back into the box you received them in.

Storing your lashes not only keeps them safe, but also keeps them clean, and protected from dust, dirt, and bacteria. This will also help maintain their shape wear after wear.

Most importantly, wear them with pride and rock your look, whatever lashes you use!
