How To Make Your False Eyelashes Last Longer
There are a lot of good false eyelashes on the market, such as KOL Cosmetics lashes, that will give you a bang for it’s buck. On average, a pair of good quality eyelashes will last approximately 20 – 25 uses, and maybe more, if they are handled with care. It is worth investing on a good pair of falsies, rather than a cheaper product. How you look after the lashes after each wear will determine how long you will prolong its use. This is how to make your false eyelashes last longer.
1. Do Not Pull The Lash Hairs
Treat your false lashes in the same way that you treat your own lashes and be very gentle as you remove them from the plastic tray, using a tweezer if you wish. Apply the same rule when you are removing the eyelashes from your eyelids. Starting at the outer corner, pull away from the band and not the hairs or you may pull them out of the band.
2. Do Not Use An Eyelash Curler On Your False Eyelashes
Eyelash curling can cause damage to the fragile hairs of fake eyelashes. Curl your natural eyelashes prior to applying your falsies to make your eyes look larger.
3. Do Not Apply Mascara On Your Falsies
After curling your natural lashes with an eyelash curler, apply mascara before placing the false eyelashes. Once your falsies are in place, simply squeeze the hairs together with your natural lash hairs. This will allow them to last longer.
4. Clean Your Lashes
It is important to make sure that you clean the lashes after you wear them, not only to make them last longer but to prevent the risk of eye infections. Place the false eyelashes on a tissue and firmly hold the band to prevent them from moving around.
Dip cotton buds into oil-free eye makeup remover and moving from the band to tip, wipe the bud along the lashes to remove all makeup.
Avoid oil-based products since these leave a residue on the eyelash band and with have an adverse affect on the glue, rendering it useless. Further, since your false eyelashes are in direct contact with your skin, you do not want to use any harsh chemicals to clean them.
A thin layer of glue will remain on the band of your false eyelashes when you remove them from your eyelids.
It is important that you remove it because over time it will harden and result in the falsies becoming un-reusable.
Hold the eyelash with one hand and gently peel of the glue from the band. Be careful not to pull out the hairs.
5. Do Not Sleep In False Eyelashes
Remove your false lashes along with your makeup before going to bed. Not only would be it be uncomfortable to sleep in, it is also unhygienic.
6. Do Not Soak Your Falsies
It is important that you keep your false eyelashes clean however soaking them in water or any other liquid will ruin the lash curl.
To make them last longer, give them a quick rinse and let them dry naturally.
7. Always Store In A Protective Box
False eyelashes of good quality will arrive in a sturdy box. The eyelashes themselves will be placed on moon-shaped trays.
Have you checked out the pretty box that KOL Cosmetics’ Eyelashes arrive in?
To ensure that your fake eyelashes last longer, place the them back onto the tray 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 to warp.
