While you may love having a seriously envy-worthy fringe, all good things must come to an end—at least until you apply your next set of individual lashes. Now that you know how to apply individual lashes, it’s time to learn something equally important: how to remove individual lashes. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when removing your lashes.
TIP #1: USE A GENTLE MAKEUP REMOVER
Makeup remover can help dissolve your lash glue and make it easier to remove your individual lashes. Make sure to opt for a gentle formula as your eyes are a sensitive area—you don’t want to irritate or damage your eyes or your actual lashes in the process! Try using a cotton pad saturated with the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types.
TIP #2: PRESS, DON’T RUB
When using a makeup remover, don’t rub your eyes. Rubbing and tugging on your individual lashes is going to have the unwanted consequence of pulling on your natural lashes—which can result in your real lashes falling out. Instead of rushing and rubbing at your eyes, gently press the cotton pad against your lashes and hold it there to allow the micellar water to work its magic on your lash glue—no harsh rubbing required.
