False eyelashes are probably the easiest solutions you have available to you if you want to improve the looks of your lashes. It might seem like a superficial concern for many, but growing eyelashes is a priority among many people, especially those who have had their lashes grow much more thinly or those who don’t appear to have any eyelashes at all as a result of some medical condition; some pregnant women even tend to lose their lashes throughout the duration of their pregnancy. If you are interested in enhancing the appearance of your lashes with the help of long false eyelashes there are a few things you need to know first.
Primarily, you have to make sure that the eyelashes you choose will look good. There used to be false eyelashes that look so stiff and plasticky that they almost seemed comical and far from natural. These days, you can find fake lashes that look good and almost seem to move the same way as your natural lashes do. False eyelashes are attached to your eyeline, blending with the lashes you already have, with the help of a special adhesive.
When you buy these, you have to be sure that they fit your eyes. You don’t want them extending too far from the edges of your eyes. Applying them is the slightly tricky part, because you have to be careful while doing so, and making sure at the same time that the glue you will use will not get into your eyes.
When you think that it’s time to remove them, it’s important not to yank them off abruptly or risk losing the lashes you so cherish. The false eyelashes can be easily prised off once you moisten the eyeline with a damp cotton wool. This helps wash away the glue that holds your false eyelashes in place, and once it has been completely dissolved, the falsies can now be peeled off–just remember to do this gently.
You can reuse your false lashes as well, as long as you make sure to clean them thoroughly and properly. They have most likely accumulated quite a bit of dirt during the time you’ve been using them, so get them nice and clean before reusing them. Make sure that you pick off any remaining adhesive on the lashes–as always, do this carefully so as not to damage them. You can then soak them in warm, soapy water for a few minutes, rinsing them afterward. Dry them by simply leaving them on a piece of tissue to air out or press them in between two pieces of tissue.
