HOW TO CLEAN YOUR FALSE EYELAS
If you’re as passionate about your lashes as we are, you understand how important it is to clean them every day just like the rest of your regimen.
We’re all about durability and making the most of your purchase, so keeping your eye infections at bay by keeping your eyelashes clean makes sense practically. Pink eye, pus-filled bulging eye sockets, or, if you’re unlucky, contagious conjunctivitis, are the three things that are the least attractive.
We’ll show you how to take care of your individual, semi-permanent lashes as well as how to clean your removable fake lashes. Start with your strip and magnetic lashes, then move on to the ones that are intended to remain in place for a longer period of time.
Cleaning your Magnetic False Lashes
You’ll need these tools:
- Lash brush
- Gentle cleanser
- Paper towel or kitchen roll
Step 1: Amass your equipment. A lash brush, a mild cleaner, water, and a cloth or paper towel are required. Since this product is made specifically for cleaning eyelashes, we advise using a specialized cleanser, though any light soap can do in a hurry. Avoid applying anything that could harm the delicate lash fibers, such as strong chemicals.
Step 2: With warm water, wet your eyelashes. This method of cleaning will assist in removing any oil, makeup, or grime that has accumulated over the day on your lashes.
Step 3: While being careful not to pull or tug, lightly brush a little bit of cleanser into your wet lashes using your lash brush.
Step 4: Rinse your magnetic lashes with lukewarm water until you have removed all traces of the cleanser.
Step 5: Dry your eyelashes gently with a cloth or paper towel. Make careful to blot your eyelashes rather than rubbing them because doing so might frizz them up and harm them.
Step 6: Until you’re ready to use them again, put your false eyelashes back in their case or storage container.
Step 7: Spend money on your lashes! With the right maintenance, a good set of artificial eyelashes can endure for weeks.

Cleaning your False Strip Lashes
Step 1: Use a cotton bud dipped in water-based eye makeup remover to gently remove the eyelash.
Step 2: Make use of the same cotton bud to carefully remove any remaining adhesive from the strip.
Step 3: Use a fresh cotton bud to gently brush through the lashes to clean them after soaking it in water-based eye makeup remover.
Step 4: Brush the lashes with a clean, dry mascara wand and place them on kitchen roll (not toilet paper) to dry completely.
Step 5: Place the strip lashes back in their case or storage container until ready.
Cleaning your Semi-Permanent or Individual False Lashes
If you’ve invested in semi-permanent or individual (4-6 weeks lifespan) falsies, you still need to keep them clean or risk infection. Here’s how:
Step 1: As normal, take off your makeup, being careful not to pull or irritate your eyelashes. Once more, keep oil-based cleaners away from your eyes. Use micellar water or a makeup remover with a water base.
Step 2: You should gently rub a cotton pad dampened with water-based eye makeup remover over your closed eyes for 10 to 20 seconds. On your lashes, soaking will aid to remove dirt, makeup, or natural oils.
Step 3: Avoid pulling your false lashes while using a lash brush (or a clean, dry mascara wand) to softly brush through them.
Step 4: Rinse your eyelashes in lukewarm water until the cleanser is completely gone.
Step 5: Pat your face dry. Keep any heavy facial oils or night creams out of your eyes if you’re using them. To protect your eyelashes, skip this phase of your evening beauty routine because night cream or oil will shift as you move.

Other Ways to Make Your Fake Lashes Last Longer
Sleep on your back: Your eyelashes will shed earlier if you sleep on your stomach or side since you will crush them. Here’s additional information on sleeping with your lashes on.
Use an Eye Mask with Contours: Your eyelashes will stay in place and avoid getting squished while you sleep if you wear a contoured eye mask.
When applying mascara, use caution: Avoid getting mascara on your false lashes when applying mascara to your real lashes because doing so could cause them to degrade and fall out more quickly. If you accidently get mascara on your falsies, gently wipe it off with a cotton bud or q-tip dipped in (water-based) makeup remover.
Do Not Use Oil-Based Products: Cleansers, makeup removers, face creams, etc. are included in this. Avoid putting anything oil-based near your eyes since oil destroys the adhesive glue holding your false teeth in place.
Be careful when washing your face: When cleaning your face, avoid rubbing or scrubbing because doing so can loosen the lash glue and cause your lashes to come out. To remove any debris or makeup, place a clean washcloth over your eyes and allow the steam do the work. Then, gently wipe the area clean.
Don’t pull on your lashes: This one may seem obvious, but it’s simple to fall into the habit of pulling or rubbing your eyelashes when you’re worried or weary. This not only results in early shedding but also has the potential to harm the fragile lash follicles, weakening them over time. Try wearing glasses or shades to help you break the habit if you find yourself rubbing your eyes frequently.
Purchase high-quality lashes: Cheap artificial lashes have a higher propensity to frizz, shed, and fall out early. If you’re serious about keeping your fake lashes last, spend money on a high-quality set that, with the right maintenance, will endure for weeks.
The Bottom Line
