Full Answer

  1. Prep the false eyelashes

    Use a Q-tip, makeup sponge or cotton swab to gently apply warm water, coconut oil or olive oil to the line of the eyelashes. Allow the liquid to set for a few minutes to soften the glue.

  2. Apply makeup remover

    Purchase an eyelash glue remover or any non-oil-base makeup remover. Apply the makeup remover to the line of the eyelashes using a cotton swab. Allow the makeup remover to set in for the time recommended on the bottle.

  3. Push the eyelashes down to remove

    Hold the false eyelashes with one hand and use a cotton swab to push them down. Pull gently down to remove the false eyelashes painlessly. Use tweezers for individual faux lashes or for clump lashes.

  4. Clean the eyelashes

    It is important to remove the eyelash glue from false lashes to make them reusable. Use a cotton swab to gently apply alcohol to the back of the eyelashes and then use tweezers to carefully pull the remaining glue off the back. Set the lashes aside to dry and then store them for later use.

    How do you cut false eyelashes?

    A:

    If false eyelashes need to be shortened, they should be cut individually to different lengths. If all the lashes are cut to the same size, they look unnatural. Trim each lash at an angle using small scissors, varying the length slightly from lash to lash. The longest lashes should be at the outside corners of the eyes.
