Whether one prefers temporary strip lashes or individual permanent lashes, there are necessary safety measures one needs to take.

False lashes are great for making the eyes pop and adding dramatic flair to one's costume or outfit but they can also be a nightmare to apply and remove.

  1. Eyelashes need to be done by a reputable professional with the use of high quality products. Any allergic reactions could cause loss of natural lashes, eye damage and can sometimes cause loss of sight.
  2. To avoid any irritation, one needs to do a patch test to determine any allergies prior.
  3. Natural eyelashes protect the eyes from dust, sweat and any foreign materials. False lashes tend to trap dirt and bacteria. Consulting with a professional to get the best results and implement high standards is important.
  4. False strip lashes are also great for temporary use but should not be kept on for too long or more than 48 hours.
  5. If one loves lash extensions, make sure you take the necessary breaks to avoid your natural lashes from being damaged or infected.
  6. The best way to remove fake lashes is to use a special remover to soften the glue. Aggressively or incorrectly removing the lashes could cost you your natural eyelashes.
