Plenty of women use false eyelashes to enhance their beauty and better frame their eyes. They fix them on the upper eyelash line, using a special glue. Unfortunately, this kind of glue contains a lot of chemicals that are not that easy to remove. For those of you who are not initiated, the process can be tricky and last longer than expected. Moreover, you can damage your natural lashes if you don’t pull out the fake ones correctly. Below, we have detailed a step-by-step guide on how to remove fake eyelashes.

How to Remove Face Eyelashes – Main Steps

There are three main methods you can use to remove fake eyelashes: using oils, applying glue remover, and the professional removing procedure done at beauty salons. In this post, we will present you the first one, with oils.

#1. Apply Oil

When it comes to how to remove fake eyelashes, using oil is one of the easiest and most secure ways. However, if you don’t do it properly, it might damage your false eyelashes, making them unusable next time you want to wear them. Therefore, you should use this procedure only if you are ready to throw the fake lashes in the trash and use a new pair next time. The best choices for this are the following essential oils: coconut, almond, and baby oil.

#2. Lose the Glue

Put a small amount of oil on your fingers and wipe it on your eyelid in a gentle manner. The oil works greats because it will loosen the glue and will also break down your makeup. Now it’s time to put some water on your eyelids. Make sure the water is warm. To clear your eyelash line, rub these two ingredients softly until they get absorbed the skin. As I previously mentioned, your fake eyelashes will be wasted no matter how gently you do this procedure, so don’t worry about using them more than once.

#3. Gently Pull Off the Fake Lashes

Your eyelashes are now ready to be pulled off. Do this slowly and carefully. You can either use your fingertips or a pair of tweezers. Try to grab the false eyelashes as close to your lash line as possible. If you feel like they are still tough to pull off, apply some more oil. Leave it there for a couple of minutes before trying again. The best way to do it is to begin from the inner edge. Continue the gentle pulling until you reach the outer edge of the fake lashes.

#4. Remove the Excess Glue

Some glue residues might remain stuck on your eyeline and lashes. Therefore, it is wise to clean all the excess glue. To do that, apply some more oil and rub it softly until it comes off completely.

#5. Cleanse Makeup

Lastly, wash off your makeup, also removing the oil. Your eyes and face must be makeup-free and totally cleaned. Do that by using a good yet gentle face wash and lukewarm water. Finally, rinse it well and tap your face with a clean towel.

We all have heard how difficult taking off your false eyelashes can be. However, if you follow our step-by-step guide on how to remove fake eyelashes, the entire procedure will seem much easier and quicker. Moreover, it is a safe way to do it, without harming your natural eyelashes.
