How to Properly Remove False Eyelashes

We find that the process of removing false eyelashes can often be rushed through; where after a long day or night the temptation to simply rip-off your precious false lashes seems like a good idea. We can definitely relate to this, which is why we have come up with a simple step by step guide on how to take off fake eyelashes, and how to keep them in their most perfect shape!

Read below for our best tips to remove your false eyelashes properly!

1. Always dissolve the Lash Glue first

This first step in learning how to remove false eyelashes is ensuring a seamless removal of the lashes and not forcing them to come off! Take a cotton swab and dip it in some makeup remover (preferably oil-free). After that, rub it along the lash band where it is attached to your eye to help dissolve the glue before attempting to remove the lashes. 

2. Gently nudge the lash band

While many of us may think you would take the lashes off by pulling from the lashes themselves, we have a more useful suggestion which will extend the life of your beautiful lashes. Gently take your finger and push the lashes down where the band sits. If the lashes are resisting being pushed down, take your cotton swab and makeup remover and apply some more along the band so the glue dissolves.


In short: they should easily come off, you shouldn’t need to force it, and always handle by the band!

3. Rub off remnants of glue from the lash band

Once you’ve got the lashes off, you can take out another cotton swab dipped in makeup remover, and rub off any remaining lash glue that is on the band. This will help maintain the softness of the band so they can be reused again and again!

 

4. Store in casing after use

If you're wearing Esqido mink lashes, they are reusable, and we’ve designed a beautiful and purposeful package that lets you store your lashes after each use! Place your cleaned mink lashes into the box to prevent any unwanted dust, dirt or debris from getting onto the lashes. If you're wearing other false eyelashes, simply store them back in their original packaging or in a clean box.


Now that you have learned how to remove false eyelashes, you can understand how these steps are crucial to keeping your mink lashes in top shape in order to reuse them as long as possible, and give you that perfect signature look, time and time again.
