Step 1: Removal All Makeup on and Around Your Eyes
Using an oil-free makeup remover, start to remove the makeup on and around your eyes. For example, if you’re removing eyeliner, take a lip applicator or soft clean make up brush and use a foam cleanser before brushing around the skin and lashes.
Stay away from cotton buds. Fluff can get into the eyelashes and you’ll find it becomes incredibly difficult to remove.
Step 2: Remove Your Foundation
If you tend to wear a lot of foundation, you need to remove this as well. Remove it using your preferred cleanser but stay away from the eyes. Particularly as many foundation removers are oil-based or contain some oil at the very least.
Step 3: Wash Those Lashes
To wash them, you need to gently wet your eyes and lashes with some cool, not hot, water. Then take a little lash shampoo or a lash cleansing brush and work it up into a lather in the palm of your hand. Now apply it to your eyes and gently brush your lashes. Repeat this part of the process until your eyes feel clean and refreshed.
Step 4: Rinse and Dry Those Lashes
Next, rinse your eyes off, so all the shampoo and excess dirt and makeup are removed from the area and your lashes. When it comes to the drying, much like with the washing, you need to avoid rubbing them, just pat/dab them gently with a soft paper tissue
Step 5: Brush Those Lashes Out
The final part of cleaning your eyelashes is to simply give them a brush out, twirling your lash wand gently through them before fanning them out. Ensure that you never brush your lash extensions while they are wet. Dry them properly with a tissue or use the cold setting on a hair dryer.
