Picture this, you’ve just woken up from arguably the best night of your life only to look down and find your once gorgeous lashes on the floor, destroyed - it’s a sad image, we know.
Luckily, when we created our lashes we took the time to ensure that not only do they look great but they last too!
With just a little bit of time and a dash of TLC, your lashes will easily last for over 40 wears - now that is some serious value for money!
Let’s start with the serious stuff. Oil. Eyelash archnemesis No.1.
Unfortunately, the uber strong glue we use in our lashes and oil just do not get along.
In order to protect your lashes, we recommend that you avoid this lash destroyer completely. Any oil containing products - think makeup remover, soaps, micellar water- will break down the bonds in the glue causing your lashes to shed or fall apart. Not ideal!
Instead, we suggest using oil-free products along with warm water when cleaning your lashes!
When caring for your lashes, it’s also important to remember to remove all traces of magnetic liner once you are finished using them.
A build-up of liner residue will reduce the staying power of the magnets and you may struggle to get them to stay in place for long.
In our experience, it’s best to remove any liner leftovers properly & often!
Below we’ve put together two handy step-by-step guides for you to follow when cleaning your lashes!
- Start by filling a small container with warm water.
- Add to the water an oil-free soap - try using an antibacterial soap to remove any harmful nasties!
- Submerge your lashes in the soapy water to soften the liner and any other makeup residue such as mascara.
- Using a pair of tweezers or the back of your lash applicator, gently start to remove the softened liner making sure that the magnets are completely cleared.
- Once dry, pop your clean lashes back into their case, all ready for their next use!
- Grab your lashes, an oil-free make-up remover and a few cotton buds.
- Soak the end of the cotton bud in the make-up remover and use this to gently clean any liner or mascara from the lash.
- For any stubborn spots, try letting the make-up remover soak in for a short time -this will help break down the liner making it easier to remove.
- Make sure to focus on the magnets to ensure that no liner remains.
- Once clean, place back into their case until you next need them - if you can stop wearing them for that long!
