7 Deadly Sins

1. Pulling Your Lash Hairs

Make your false eyelashes last longer by giving them a lot of TLC. Treat your false lashes as you treat your lashes, and be very gentle as you remove them from your eyelids. Starting at the outer corner, pull away from the band, not the hairs, or you risk losing them. Use a tweezer to apply the same rule when removing the eyelashes from the tray.

2. Using An Eyelash Curler On Your Falsies

Eyelash curling makes your eyes look larger; however, it can cause damage to the delicate hairs of false eyelashes. Curl your natural eyelashes before applying your falsies.

3. Applying Mascara On Your Fake Lashes

Apply mascara before placing the false eyelashes once you have curled your natural lashes. This will allow them to last longer. Once your falsies are in place, squeeze the hairs together with your natural lash hairs.

4. Not Cleaning Your Lashes

When you remove your false eyelashes, you will see a thin layer of glue on the band. You must remove it because, over time, it will harden and make them un-reusable. Hold the eyelash with one hand and gently peel off the glue from the band. Be careful not to pull out the hair.

Investing in good-quality eyelashes means that you can reuse them. First, however, you must ensure you clean the lashes or risk eye infections after wearing them. First, place the false eyelashes on a tissue and firmly hold the band to prevent them from moving around. Next, dip cotton buds into oil-free eye makeup remover, and moving from the bar to tip, wipe the bud along the lashes to remove all makeup.

Avoid oil-based products since they leave a residue on the eyelash band and harm the glue, rendering it useless. Further, since your false eyelashes are in direct contact with your skin, you do not want to use harsh chemicals to clean them.

5. Sleeping In Your Falsies

You should remove your lashes along with your makeup before going to bed. Not only would it be very uncomfortable to sleep in, but it is also unhygienic. And who wants to wake up with an eyelash stuck somewhere randomly on your face?

6. Soaking Your Eyelashes

It would be best to keep your false eyelashes clean, but soaking them in water or any other liquid will ruin the curl of the lashes. To make the false eyelashes last longer, rinse them and let them dry naturally.

7.  Not Storing In Its Protective Box

False eyelashes of good quality will arrive in a sturdy box. The eyelashes themselves will be placed on moon-shaped trays. To ensure your false eyelashes last longer, put them back onto the trays when not in use and close the storage box. Keep your eyelashes out of direct sunlight to prevent any change of colour or the band from warping.

We were all born beauty sinners! With so many better things to do, if there is a quicker route to getting to the end of our daily routine we’re going to take it. It’s no different when it comes to caring for your false eyelashes. Good quality eyelashes can last for as much as up to 20 – 25 uses if well cared for so it is worth investing on a good pair, rather than a cheaper product. Whether they are mink or silk lashes, how you care for the lashes after each wear will determine how long they last.
