Pro Trick To Make Your False Lashes Last Longer than Ever!
Be it the drugstore version or the high-end one, making sure your false lashes last more than one night is every beauty lover’s achievement.
Depending on what you’re going for, you can find a perfectly good set of false eyelashes for daily wear at great deal at your local drugstore, or shell out for more for professional designed Studio Effects Lashes for special occasions your favorite reality TV star swears by. The decision to save or to splurge is up to you, but if you choose the higher-priced road, you can still get the most bang for your buck. It’s all in how you care for the lashes after each wear.
In the video, the dried glue is carefully removed from the false lashes with a tweezer. Next, lightly press each lash strip between two make-up remover soaked cotton pads (any water based makeup remover solution will work) for 30 seconds. Then removes any additional mascara and residue with a cotton swab and places the lashes back in their original packaging.
‘If you attach them firmly to the band and press them down this will help curl them,’ the vlogger comments.
Voila! Falsies like new after this spa treatment!
Store your lashes in the original packaging to keep them clean and from losing their shape!
“I completely believe spending money on quality lashes is worth it and really cost-effective in the long run,” Kattan (vlogger) wrote on her website. “But they’re only cost-effective if you know how to take care of them properly.” And that’s where this step-by-step video of the thorough but gentle method she uses to keep her lashes looking as good as new for up to 20 wears.
The best part? Everything you need is probably already in your bathroom cabinet — except, of course, for patience. You’re going to need plenty of that.
