Ill-fitting lashes can be very uncomfortable to wear. If you find that the corners of your lashes lift or poke your inner eye, if usually means the lash strip is too long for your eye shape.
This can be easily fixed by trimming your strip lashes in the right places. Follow our step-by-step guide below to measuring, sizing and trimming your lashes.
How to trim and apply lashes correctly
Before trimming your lashes, always try them on first to determine how much of the lash strip requires trimming. It is always best to use manicure scissors or similarly, small precise ones when trimming your lashes. When trimming the lashes, always start from the out edge corner - not the inner corner, as we want the lash hairs on the inner corner to remain short.
When applying lashes, it helps to hold them by a pair of lash tweezers so you can get a more precise placement, I recommend these https://bit.ly/2NWWI1H . After applying lash glue to the strip, allow the glue to get tacky by waiting 45-60 seconds depending on the glue you’re using. This is very important, wet glue will not hold and the lash strip will move around making it difficult for you to get proper lash placement. While looking down into a mirror, place the lashes on your natural lash line, as close to your real lashes as possible, avoiding any gaps. After applying the lashes, you can go over your lash line with a black eyeliner to help blend the lash band, making it look less visible.
How to store and sanitize lashes so they can be re-used
These lashes are reusable and should be sanitized between uses with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Dab the q-tip in alcohol and then along the band of the lashes. If there is any excess glue on the lash band, you can peel it off using tweezers or your fingers.
Lashes should always be stored in their original packaging to maintain integrity and quality of the lashes; but also to avoid cross contamination. The better care you take of your lashes, the longer they will last.
How to remove false lashes
NEVER remove your lashes by pulling off the lash band! You risk pulling out your own lashes and it’s painful, not to mention it can cause long term damage to our eyelids if removed improperly. To remove your lashes properly, soak a q-tip or cotton bud in eye makeup remover such as this https://bit.ly/2xHnkJG, and gently run that along your lash line. Be careful not to rub too hard, as the skin around our eyes and on our lids is very delicate. You will feel the lashes start to come loose, repeat with a new cotton bud as necessary until the entire strip is removed.
