Removing false lashes

Now the difficult part. Never ever pull your fake lashes off. No matter how tired or drunk you are, this is one of the worst beauty mistakes. You will end up damaging a lot of your natural lashes. This is the right way to do it:

Step 1: Soak a Q-tip in an oil-free makeup remover.

Step 2: Gently massage your lash line with the Q-tip.

Step 3: The falsies will fall off naturally. No tugging or pulling required!
