t’s all pretty girl behavior until it’s time to take off those individual eyelashes. While some opt for strip lashes and have learned how to apply them in seconds, some ladies still prefer individual lashes because nobody got time for that daily application.

Whatever the case may be, when it’s time to say goodbye, don’t give in to the impulse of plucking out those individual eyelashes, because it won’t take off the falsies alone, but would also damage your natural lashes, making you look permanently morose. No one wants to go from slay mama to a puffy-eyed girl in minutes.

This forceful removal could also cause irritation and is rather painful. Life doesn’t have to be that hard. There are stress-free DIY ways to help you get rid of the villain (lash glue) that has kept the extensions from letting loose.

By following these few easy steps, you’ll master how to remove individual lashes and preserve your natural lashes…

What do you need?

• Steaming hot water

• A mild makeup remover

• Facial cleanser

• Cotton pad

• Olive or Coconut oil

• Mirror

• Proper Lighting

The process of removing individual eyelashes


• Firstly, apply the makeup remover to take out any leftover makeup, returning the face to its default state.

• Then wash your face thoroughly.

• To further loosen your lashes’ rein, and facilitate the release of the individual eyelashes, fill a bowl with steaming hot water, then put your face directly over it and completely cover your head with a large towel. Try hanging in there for about 10 minutes. Sorry babes. No pain, no gain.

• Dip the cotton pad into your choice oil and mildly brush along your lash line in a downward motion (not side to side). This should enable the individual eyelashes to slip off easily.

Note: Repeat the process as many times as possible till the lashes come off on the cotton pad. Revert the urge to add that extra pressure of plucking it out yourself.

Once the individual eyelashes and glue are all gone, rinse your face with warm water and dry your face gently with a clean towel. Use a facial cleanser to remove the extra oil on your skin. Apply moisturizer to your face. Voila! You’re good to go.
