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 splash the water onto your lashes with your hands or use an eyelash cleansing brush by soaking it in water and gently dabbing it 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 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 most of the dead skin cells and oil are.
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 makeup 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.
