If you have with straight, droopy or sparse lashes, welcome to the club. For girls like us, false lashes are the holy grail makeup product that we can’t live without. I mean, kudos to the one who invented false lashes for everyone who’s just sick of seeing the men in their life flaunting longer and fuller lashes than them.
Since you also love wearing falsies (just like me), I am going to share my three best kept secrets, or lash hacks, you might say, with you. After all, sharing is caring, isn’t it? So, take a look at three quick hacks for removing, applying and cleaning your lashes that are going to make your life so much easier. You’re welcome!
How to apply
Applying false lashes is no rocket science. That is when they are old. But working with new falsies is not a breeze. They are straight, stiff and often oversized.
Here’s what you can do - Measure the lashes on your lids and cut the excess with the help of scissors. Next, wrap your falsies on your finger and blow dry for about 10-15 seconds. It will give them a natural curve. Heat your eyelash curler with a hairdryer and use them on your falsies to curl them.
How to remove
Rubbing, pulling or peeling it off your lid can harm your skin and leave it with wrinkles, irritation and what not. Plus, it can cause your real lashes to break and fall out. The right way to remove your false eyelashes is to first break down the glue and then gently strip it off. Dip a Q-tip in any facial oil or makeup remover and lightly glide it over the lash band. Once the glue loosens up, remove the lashes gently and wipe off the makeup with a cotton pad.
How to clean
Clean the glue on the lash band with the help of tweezers.
Clam the glue with tweezers and pull to peel it off. Next, run a clean mascara wand on the band to remove any leftover glue residue. Put the falsies in a bowl and pour micellar water in it. Let them soak in it for 10 minutes. Take them out on a paper towel and clean them with a cotton swab. Let them dry.
