How To Get Mega Volume Lashes Clean
Firstly, remove any make-up you’re wearing with an oil-free make-up remover but be careful to avoid your lashes as you do so.
You can use your usual cleanser if you want, but be aware that most of them do contain oil so be extra careful to keep products that have any oil away from your lashes.
Then you wet your lashes with cool or lukewarm water. Never use water that is too hot!
You can either splash the water onto your lashes with your hands, or use an eyelash cleansing brush by soaking it in water and dabbing it gently onto your lashes.
Now you can apply the cleanser to your eyelashes. It’s best to put the cleanser onto an eyelash cleansing brush as this makes it easier for you to get the cleanser in between your eyelashes.
Gently work the cleanser into your lashes, moving the brush up, down, and across the lashes.
Focus on the base of your lash extensions, as this is where the majority of the dead skin cells and oil is.
Repeat this process until your lashes feel clean, and don’t rub at your lashes!
Rinse your eyes with cool or lukewarm water and make sure that the cleanser as well as any excess dirt and make-up is removed.
Again, you can use your hands to splash water onto your lashes, or rinse your brush and use that to dab your lashes with water until all the product is removed. You can go to our article on how to clean eyelash extensions at home for the most current and best practices.
