Strip lashes are a great way to add a dramatic look to your eyes without having to worry about damaging your natural eyelashes. They are located close to the lash line, so you don't have to worry about any damage. However, it is important to know how long you can wear them for and how to properly care for them. You can wear strip lashes for as long as you want, but it is recommended that you remove them when you remove your eye makeup.
This will help keep your natural eyelashes healthy and prevent any damage from occurring. If you want to wear them for multiple days in a row, individual lashes are the best option. Depending on the glue used and the application method, individual lashes can stay on for up to 3-7 days. It is not recommended to keep false eyelashes on for longer than 12 hours at a time.
Even if you clean them after each use, the more intensive cleaning process will add additional wear and tear to the hair on your eyelashes. After peeling them off the eyelids, pick up a makeup remover or micellar swab soaked in water and brush it gently along the eyelash strip. When it comes time to remove your false eyelashes, use tweezers to gently pull off the dry glue from the eyelashes and store them in their original cover until you want to use them again. Depending on the look you're trying to achieve, you can place two or three individual lashes for a subtle look, or more than five for a lot of drama.
It is important to never sleep with false eyelashes on as this can cause damage to your natural eyelashes. There are many different types of false eyelashes available, including animal lashes which come from brushed fur that has been harvested from a variety of animals, including minks and horses. Lashify lashes are lighter than false eyelashes and are applied to the underside of the lashes and placed at the base of the real eyelashes, not the eyelid. Synthetic lashes will start to degrade after four or five uses, so it is important to clean them regularly (ideally after each use) with a makeup remover or micellar swab soaked in water and brush it gently along the eyelash strip. When applying false eyelashes, it is important to follow the instructions and let the glue stick to the false eyelashes for about 30 seconds before placing the eyelash on the eyelid.
This will help ensure that they stay in place and don't cause any damage to your natural eyelashes. Long-term exposure of natural eyelashes to harmful chemicals increases the likelihood of adverse effects, so it is important to be mindful when wearing false eyelashes.
