The first 2 weeks are the best after getting your eyelash extensions. Your lashes are light and flutter, and everything looks really good. However, things start getting gnarly and messy once you have passed the 3-week mark.
This is when you should be returning to your favorite salon for your touch-up or when you want them removed. If you are unable to make it to the salon here are a few tips on how to safely remove your eyelash extensions.
Use an oil-based eye-makeup remover. Apply the solution to cotton wool and then gently wipe the formula over each lash. You should start to notice the lashes wiping away with each stroke. To make sure you remove all the lashes, you might need to repeat the process a few times. Avoid rubbing the area and try not to get the eye-makeup remover into your eyes. If you find a few stubborn lashes that won’t budge wait for an hour or two before you give it another go.
Extra Tip: Steam your face gently beforehand to help with loosening the glue. Use a bowl filled with hot water placing a towel over the bowl and your head. Make sure you keep a distance from the hot water to avoid burning your face. Steam for at least 10 minutes before you use an oil-based product to remove your lash extensions.
If you prefer natural products, then coconut oil works just as well as oil-based cleansers. The oil will dissolve the glue and gently wipe those eyelash extensions away.
This oil is one of those pantry staples that offer a variety of uses. Olive oil is gentle for the delicate skin around your eyes, just be very careful to not get this solution to close to your eyes.
