Wearing eyelashes is cool and adds beauty to your look, but removing them can prove difficult.
Removing artificial eyelashes isn’t anything like playing with a ball in the park.
Most people recommend leaving eyelash removal to professionals, but what if they needs to be removed urgently and there’s no professional nearby?
Here are DIY (Do It Yourself) tricks that can help.
1. Take a hot bath
If there is one thing artificial lashes hate, it’s moisture and heat. This weakens the glue. Trying to remove your false eyelashes? Have a hot bath and pour a generous amount of warm water on your eyes. It may not have an immediate effect, but they will come off in time.
2. Use castor, vegetable, or coconut oil
These oils are quite effective when it comes to taking eyelashes off. Before going to bed, use a cotton swab to apply any of these oils on your eyelashes. Try not to let it get to your eyes.
3. Use an oil-based makeup remover
Your makeup remover could be either water or oil-based. But when you are keen on urgently removing your eyelashes, use an oil-based remover. Oil-based removers contain glycols that help dissolve adhesive bonds.
4. Use an eyelash remover
Walk into the cosmetic store and buy an eyelash remover. This makes the whole process easier.
What shouldn’t you do?
Don’t try to cut your false lashes off, it might damage your actual lashes.
Don’t try to use tweezers or scissors. That could harm your eyes.
Don’t pull at it continuously. Your eyes are delicate.
