How To Deep Cleaning Your Fake Lashes

My Beauty Airlines

It’s time to deep clean your lashes and, My Beauty Airlines will guide you through it. Cleaning your lashes is essential to keep bacteria away from your eyes. It also helps your lashes last longer in the best condition. You will need these things to get started. 

  • Bowl
  • Micellar water or Makeup remover solution (If you don’t have these warm water & soap will work too.)
  • Tweezers
  • Spoolie or Q-tip
  • Paper towel

Step #1: Remove excess glue

On the strip of your lashes, you can see the excess glue. Using your tweezers gently, peel the glue off. Make sure you hold the lash using your thumb and index finger. Your thumb will hold it down while the lash lays on your index finger, preventing you from ripping the lashes. You should peel the glue off each time you remove your lashes, so it’s easier to apply them next time.  

Step #2: Soak lashes

Fill your bowl with micellar water or liquid makeup remover if you don’t have either. You can fill it with warm water and mix it with a small amount of soap. Now soak your lashes for 30mins. If you use a lot of mascara you can even let your lashes soak overnight. 

Step #3: Clean Lashes

Remove lashes from the bowl and place them on the paper towel. If there is still glue residue on the strip, peel it off with tweezers. The glue should be soft and mushy, so it’s easier to remove.

Now using a spoolie or Q-tip and brush them to remove the mascara. Make sure to brush in the direction of your lashes. Brush using the spoolie as if you were applying mascara. 

Brush forward starting from the strip and brush to the tip of the lashes. As if you were applying mascara, it is important to brush in the same direction as the lashes. 

Step #4: Store lashes 

Your lashes should be all clean now. Grab your MBA boarding pass aka, your lash box to store your lashes. If you’re in a rush, you can pat them dry. We recommend letting them air dry.
