How to Apply/Remove Strip Mink Lashes
How To Apply Strip Mink Lashes
- Trim the lash to fit your eyes. Lashes are always extra-long so they can fit anyone, but most people need to trim them. We recommend trimming away the outer edge. This will give you a more natural look.
- Put mascara on your natural lash to blend your natural lashes with the falsies. This step is crucial because adding mascara on to the falsies in the end can potentially damage them and shorten their lifespan.
- Wiggle the lashes a little to make them more supple, comfortable to wear, and easier to apply.
- Holding the center of the lashes with a pair of tweezers (using tweezers gives you more balance), apply a thin layer of glue along the band of the lashes. You can apply directly from the tube or use lash glue that comes with a wand. Let the glue dry for around 10 to 30 seconds (depending on the lash glue), and when the glue is tacky (sticky), start to bring the lash to your eye.
- Look down into a mirror and apply the middle of the lash to a little above the middle of your lash line. Avoid putting the lash directly on your natural lashes - this can cause breakage. Fix the inner corner of the falsie, then fix the outer corner. This will ensure that the lash is evenly placed along your lash line. When fitted, use your tweezers or fingers to pinch the falsies and your natural lash together, ensuring that they sit together.
- If during the process you got lash glue anywhere, use a small Q-tip to gently wipe it away. White/clear glue dries clear, so opt for this option if you are prone to mistakes.
How To Remove Mink Strip Lashes
- First take off your eye makeup. This allows you to get the remover directly onto the lash line in contact with the glue.
- Next, take a small amount of remover on a cotton pad or swab and saturate the cotton. Rub the glue line gently until you can’t see any more glue, and then let it sit for up to 30 seconds.
- Pull off the lash and use the remover soaked cotton to remove any last bits of glue.
