How To Remove Individual Eyelashes Without Losing Your Real Ones

The process of removing individual eyelashes

  • Then, go ahead to wash your face thoroughly with your facial cleanser
  • To further loosen your lashes and facilitate the release of the individual eyelashes, fill a bowl with steaming hot water, then put your face directly over it and completely cover your head with a large towel. Try hanging on in there for about 10 minutes.
  • Next, dip the cotton pad into your choice oil and mildly brush along your lash line in a downward motion (not side to side). This should enable the individual eyelashes to slip off easily.

Note: Repeat the process as many times as possible till the lashes come off on the cotton pad, resist the urge to add that extra pressure of plucking it out yourself.

  • Once the falsies and glue are all gone, rinse your face with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Follow that with a facial cleanser to take off the extra oil on your skin. Then apply moisturizer to your face.

So instead of pulling out those lashes after a night out, why not try this guide and save your natural lashes. Do note that if after trying this process the lashes adamantly refuse to come off, then go back to your lash expert to aid with the removal.
