Magnetic lashes are an easy way to look at false lashes without the hassle. They are removable and reusable, so you can use them for many different events without feeling like they’re a waste of time or money. The magnets will hold them in place while you blink your eyes, and any magnetic lash set will come with detailed instructions on how to get the most out of these fantastic lashes!
The article below is going to go into detail about what magnetic lashes are, why magnetic lash extensions are popular, some tips on how to clean magnetic lashes, and how to wear magnetic lashes.
What are Magnetic Lashes?
Magnetic lashes are a way to cheat with false eyelashes. As the name suggests, they have a magnetic lash strip that helps them stick to your eyelids. Most magnetic lashes are designed for the upper lash line, but some brands also create sets that work for the lower lash line.
The lashes are made with very fine strands (so it looks like there’s more than one layer of lashes) and typically have a thicker band in the middle for added support. One end of this strip contains magnets that should be placed very close to your natural lash line. This will help them to stay on without having to use lash glue. When you’re done with the lashes, simply pull them off and slide a new pair on!
Why Magnetic Lashes Popular
As for why magnetic lashes are popular, there are a few different reasons. For starters, they work as an easy way to give you beautiful-looking lashes without having to go through all the hassle of applying the fake lash. Another reason these lashes are so desirable is because of their affordability. They tend to cost a fraction of what some other fake eyelashes cost.
These lashes are also perfect for those who want to cheat with lashes but don’t like how they look. A lot of people find that the glue used to apply magnetic eyeliner is uncomfortable and irritating. Since you use magnets instead, this isn’t an issue! You can even make your own magnetic eyelash set if you’re feeling crafty.
How To Clean Magnetic Lashes
Luckily, it doesn’t take a lot of maintenance to keep your magnetic lashes clean and ready for use! While you should never submerge these lashes in water, there are some simple steps on how to clean magnetic lashes.
What You’ll Need to clean:
When you clean magnetic lashes, make sure you have the following lashes cleaning supplier available to you.
- Eye makeup remover
- 90% alcohol
- Cotton rounds
- A cotton swab
Now, let’s go over what you can do to make sure your lashes stay clean and ready for use!
Step 1: Remove the Lashes
Take off the lashes, take them to your sink, and then get rid of that uncomfortable strip between the magnet and your lash line. This can be a painful process if you use your fingers, so be careful.
Step 2: Clean the Lashes
You can either use a cotton ball or cotton round to wipe the lashes with a makeup remover. Give them a gentle swipe from left to right, or up and down if you’re using around. Repeat this step until the lashes are clean.
Step 3: Clean the Strip
Now it’s time to get rid of all the leftover residue. Wipe the lash strip with 90% alcohol until it comes off completely. Use a cotton round or ball again for this step, and try to get as much off as you can.
Step 4: Clean the Magnets
The final step is to make sure that all residue from any glue or other products has been removed. Use a cotton round soaked in 90% alcohol to clean each lash magnet, and be careful not to chip away at them if you have a flimsy lash band.
Step 5: Dry the Lashes
Your lashes should be good to go by now. Let them air dry after you’re done cleaning them, and then store them in a clean container until you’re ready to use them again!
How To Wear Magnetic Lashes
Now that you know how to clean magnetic lashes, it’s time for the fun part: wearing magnetic lashes!
While there are a lot of methods to wear magnetic lashes, here is the simple way on how to wear magnetic lashes.
Step 1: Prep for Lashes
Before you add lashes on top of your makeup, make sure your face is moisturized and primed for foundation. You can also use a primer if you want. If you plan on using eye makeup to cover your natural lash line, do this now as well.
Step 2: Measure Lashes
To get the right length for the magnetic eyeliner lash, hold them up to your face and measure from the corner of your eye and outer lashes to create a triangle shape. Cut just before that point and then smooth out sharp edges with an emery board.
Step 3: Apply Adhesive to Magnet
Once your lashes are cut, put a few sprays of lash adhesive on the magnet and wait about 30 seconds for it to get tacky. This is especially important if you plan on using them more than once. You don’t want the lash glue softening up in between uses!
Step 4: Put the Lash on
Now, hold the lashes next to your lash line where you’d like them to go. When you get it in place, press down lightly for about 10 seconds – don’t worry if it doesn’t feel secure at first! You’ll have plenty of time later to adjust them into position on your lash line.
Step 5: Apply Makeup
Use whatever makeup technique you want to conceal your natural lash line. This is optional, but it helps the look of the lashes blend into your face better if you do this! It also makes them last longer throughout the day.
Keeping your magnetic lashes clean is easy, and it’s especially important if you’re using them frequently. Once you get in the habit of doing this every time you use them, they should remain fresh for at least a couple of months or more.
