Our false eyelashes are hand-crafted with care, precision, and high quality materials. They should last for up to 20 wears, or possibly longer if well taken care of! However, as with any strip lashes, proper care is the only way to ensure you get the most possible use from them.
Our lash care guide below explains how to care for fake lashes so that you can keep wearing them again and again. It covers all of the most frequently asked questions, from how to clean your lashes, to how to remove them without damaging them, and how to store them between wears.
If you’re new to wearing false eyelashes this page is for you. We promise it won’t take long, and it will maximize the lifespan of your purchase!
How to remove adhesive from your eyelashes
You can remove adhesive from your natural lashes by using any normal eye makeup remover, or an oil such as olive oil or coconut oil. Soak it into a cotton pad or q-tip and swipe it across your lash line. Gently peel the false eyelashes off from the outer corner by grabbing the base of the lashes. Wipe away any glue that’s still on your eyelids.
To remove adhesive left on your false eyelashes, soak a q-tip in your chosen solution (preferably micellar water) and gently rub the adhesive off being careful not to pull on the hairs (or you’ll pull them off!). Don’t soak your lashes in water or they may lose their shape and shed quickly.
How to remove your lashes
When you’re removing your lashes, please be gentle. They are very durable as far as false lashes go, but they’re still just individual hairs held together by a cotton thread.
Peel your false eyelashes carefully away, starting from the outer corner. If you feel a strong resistance, loosen the adhesive before continuing by soaking a Q-tip in non-oil based makeup remover and dabbing it along the band where you’re struggling to unstick it.
How to clean fake lashes
It’s recommended to remove adhesive buildup from your set of strip lashes every 3 – 4 wears. You may need to clean sooner if you notice a lot of build up. Use a cotton swab dipped in non-oil based makeup remover to loosen any residue that’s left on them. Then gently pull the adhesive away with tweezers or your fingertips. Be sure to hold the base and lash hairs with the pads of your fingers, to avoid individual lashes from being pulled off.
Above all, remember to never soak your lashes! They can take a little water, but don’t soak them. If your lashes get too wet, they may start to lose their shape and also shed.
