What are fake eyelashes are made of?
Lashes come in a wide variety of different styles and materials.

Human hair fake lashes are more expensive, but they can be reused if properly cared for and cleaned after each use. Lashes made out of synthetic fibers tend to last longer than human hair fake lashes since they can also be washed and worn over again (although this type of fake eyelashes typically cannot be reused).

Lashes give you an opportunity to wear all sorts of different styles and looks.

What is the best way to apply fake eyelashes?
There are several different ways in which false lashes can be worn. These include:
– Align the lash band along natural lash line
– Apply fake eyelash glue to fake lashes and natural lash base (not the skin around your eyes)
– Curl fake eyelashes prior to application using a curler or even just your fingers. *Do not use mascara as it will ruin fake lashes.*
How often should you wear fake eyelashes?
Fake eyelashes should be worn in moderation. Fake lashes can also cause your natural lashes to fall out, so fake eyelash wearers tend to lose their real lash hair more quickly than those who do not wear fake eyelashes at all.
What are the best fake lashes?
There is no “best” fake lash brand – it all depends on your fake lashes preferences.

Fake eyelash wearers typically clean their fake lashes every time after they have been worn. You should use a makeup cleanser or even just warm water to remove any residue from the fake lash band and adhesive prior to storage in order to extend the life of fake eyelashes.
How can fake eyelashes be removed?
Most fake lash bands are designed to dissolve with oil-based makeup removers, however it is best to check the specific fake lashes instructions before using this method as some fake lashes may not adhere to skin or natural lash base easily if they have been applied too tightly. Fake lashes can also be removed by using fake lashes tweezers and a special lash glue remover.
