To properly and safely remove false eyelashes, use the following steps.

  1. Peel away the fake eyelashes
  2. Use the thumb and index finger to gently grab onto the false eyelash at the outer corner. Give it a gentle tug and slowly peel it inwards. Remove false eyelash clusters carefully one at a time, starting at the outer corner of the eye.

  3. Steam the face
  4. If the lashes do not easily peel off, boil some water and pour it into a small bowl. Cover the head with a towel and hold the face over the steam for up to 15 minutes.

  5. Loosen the glue with olive oil
  6. If the lashes still do not come off, dab them with a cotton pad soaked in olive oil. Gently peel the lashes away.

  7. Clean the lashes
  8. To use the false eyelashes again, remove any excess glue from the lashes. Get glue off the lashes by gently peeling it away with the fingers. Clean lashes with some eye makeup remover and a cotton swab.

Do not attempt to remove false eyelashes with tweezers or an eyelash curler. These can damage false lashes.
