How to Clean Faux Lashes

You do know you can use your faux eyelashes more than once, right? Yeah, I know what you’re probably thinking. 

“Ewwww… But they’re so dirty how can I use them more than once?”


You clean them.

I know for some that’s the obvious choice but you have no clue how many people throw away a perfectly good (and expensive) pair of falsies because they think it’s a one time thing. Perhaps you’re one of them.

It’s very simple to clean them because all you need is 

  • A really small bowl to put your lashes in
  • Tweezers
  • A cotton swab
  • Makeup remover (duh!)
  • False lashes case (optional)
  • Paper towel
  • Olive oil or tea tree oil (optional)

The way I like to clean my false lashes is very easy. 

Here are the steps

  1. Place your lashes in small bowl
  2. Grab a cotton swab and soak it in makeup remover
  3. Gently go over your lashes with the cotton swab to remove any residue makeup such as mascara 
  4. Put a drop or two of makeup remover in small bowl with your lashes (if you have olive oil or tea tree oil put a drop or two along with it. This helps soften the lashes and also helps with the cleanup!)
  5. Take your tweezers and remove the adhesive on the lash band. Be careful for you do not want to pull apart the lashes!
  6. If you have an eyelash case handy, first place the false lashes on a paper towel and gently press down to remove the oils. Then, using your tweezers place them back onto the case and reform the shape of the lashes while separating them.
  7. Let it dry completely!

      Hope this helps! If you have a different way of cleaning your lashes let me know down in the comments! 🙂
