How to Safely Remove Eyelash Glue and Extensions

False eyelashes can be a great way to add a touch of glamour to your look, but it's important to know how to safely remove them. To start, you should always remove false eyelashes before beginning your makeup removal routine. To do this, you can use a cotton swab or swab soaked in a good quality makeup remover, such as the Dermalogica soothing eye remover or the Adklen RCMA adhesive remover. Rub some baby oil with your fingertips on the desired area and then remove it all with a damp tissue. If you look closely, you'll see the remaining strip of adhesive stuck to the base of the eyelash extensions.

To remove this, you can use warm water, a conditioner and makeup remover wipes to gently remove your eyelashes. You can also try creating a cat-eye effect by placing the outer extension slightly above your natural eyelash line. Make sure you use a good quality adhesive, as the one that sometimes comes with your eyelashes might not be the best. If for some reason your eyelash extensions start to fall out and you need to remove them immediately, there are a few things you can try. You can use a gel or cream remover with a cotton pad (or cotton swab) to remove the remaining glue on the eyelash line.

When you're done with the process, you can even leave some coconut oil on your lashes, as it helps them grow. It's important to remember that fraudulent false eyelashes can be easily prevented with a precise application and will not be a cause for great concern. And if you don't clean your lashes properly, you'll have a hard time reapplying them the next time, and soon you'll have false eyelashes covered in makeup. You don't want to be the one to get caught with a loose eyelash or just a false eyelash on at the end of the night.
