The Application Process
When applying strip lashes, it’s crucial to follow the correct procedure to minimise the risk of damage to your natural lashes. Begin by curling your natural lashes with a lash curler, ensuring you use one with a rubber coating to protect them. This step helps your strip lashes blend seamlessly with your natural lashes, creating a more cohesive look. Next, apply a thin line of lash glue onto the band of the strip lashes. Allow the glue to become tacky for about 10 seconds, or if you’re using adhesive liner, follow the instructions provided. Using a pair of tweezers, gently position the strip lashes along your lash line, avoiding direct contact with your natural lashes. Press the strip lashes inward to ensure proper adherence. It’s important to note that the strip lashes should be applied on the skin above your natural lashes, not directly on them.
Proper Removal Technique
To maintain the longevity of your strip lashes and ensure they can be reused, gentle removal is essential. One effective method is to use a mild baby shampoo. Start by dampening a cotton pad or swab with water and a small amount of baby shampoo. Gently swipe the soaked cotton pad along the lash line to loosen the adhesive. Once the adhesive has softened, carefully peel off the strip lashes, starting from the outer corner and working your way inward. Take your time to avoid any pulling or tugging that could potentially damage your natural lashes.
Preserving and Reusing Strip Lashes
By using the baby shampoo or micellar water removal method, you can effectively remove any residual adhesive from the strip lashes, allowing you to reuse them. After removal, gently rinse the lashes with water to ensure they are clean and free from any leftover glue or makeup. Allow them to air dry and store them in a clean, dry place, such as a lash case, until your next use.
