Guide: How to clean your Extended Lash
I have previously written about how to maintain your Extended lashes and the importance of knowning about the placement of Extended lashes, but it's also important that you know how to clean your Extended Lash, so that they can be reused again and again - as well as getting the most out of your lashes!
It's important to clean your DIY lashes, between uses to ensure that bacteria is removed and isn't piling up on your lashes. At the same time, residue from Bond and Seal is also removed from the lashes during cleaning, which is important to remove before a new application, so that products doesn't pile up on the lashes.
Cleaning the lashes will have an impact on whether you get the most out of your Extended lashes, as they can be used time after time, the better you are taking care of them.
Therefore, I have gathered our tips on how to clean your Extended lashes.
All you need to clean your lashes is:
- An oil-based makeup remover
- A spoolie, or the brush from an old mascara (cleaned of product, of course)
- Paper towels
And now, here's how to clean your lashes step by step:
1. Clean your lashes with an oil-based makeup remover
Put the used lash clusters in a small bowl with a bit of makeup remover. Wait 5 minutes and then remove the lashes and place them on a piece of paper towel.
2. Brush the lashes
Gently brush the lashes with a clean spoolie - or another clean brush, such as an old mascara without product - to remove residue from Bond and Seal, so that residue from the products doesn't pill up on the lashes.
3. Rinse the lashes with water
Rinse away the oil residue from the makeup remover with water. This is important so that the lashes can be reused, as any oil residue on the lashes will cause the lashes and Bond not to stick together during a new application.
4. Let the lashes dry
Place the lashes on some paper towel, so that they can air dry. By placing the lashes on paper towel, the lashes will dry faster, as the paper towel can absorb some of the water on the lashes.
5. Brush the lashes through
Brush the lashes with a spoolie when they are dry to "fluff" the lashes back up again. Your Extended lashes are now clean and ready to use again.
If the lashes still haven't become completely clean, simply repeat the process until all excess Bond and Seal has come off the lash clusters.
Now you should have a good understanding of how to clean your Extended lashes, so that you get the absolute most out of your lashes.
