Keep the Lash Clean

Suppose you’re reusing a pair of lashes multiple times. If you are not cleaning your lashes after every use, it’s more than likely that you’ve got some build-up of various eye makeup, including mascara, eyeliner, dried eyelash glue, eyeshadow, etc. Keeping your strip lashes clean will ensure they are securely applied and will also make them last longer.

Here’s how to clean your falsies:

What you’ll need:

  • Used strip lashes
  • Cotton swabs
  • Paper towel
  • Rubbing alcohol or makeup remover of your choice
  • Tweezers


  1. Start by laying your lashes curl-side-up on a dry, clean paper towel.
  2. Douse a Q-tip in either rubbing alcohol or makeup remover.
  3. Gently wipe the cotton swab over the falsie band, using enough pressure to take off the makeup and soak and debris.
  4. Make sure to coat both lashes in the alcohol/makeup remover thoroughly. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Take a clean cotton swab and dry off the lashes.
  6. Holding a lash between your thumb and pointer finger, take your tweezers and VERY VERY gently pull off any glue that is still sitting on the lash band. Repeat with the other lash. **The key is patience and being gentle, avoiding damaging your lash band**
  7. Throw away the dirty paper towel and place lashes back in the butterfly storage case for reuse. If you do not have the case use a clean dry paper towel.  [Tip: You can use a clean spoolie to come the lash hairs)
