    Hey lovelies! I’m back! Today’s post is all about how to clean your strip lashes! As my clients will know, everytime you visit me for a makeup appointment - you receive some amazing quality strip lashes that can be used up to 20 times post appointment. But it’s important to keep your lashes clean so there is no bacteria/glue build up which could get in your eyes and cause all sorts of nasty things!

    If you clean your lashes properly and carefully they can last you for weeks! Which saves you money in the long run! So it doesn’t matter if you’ve been crying/dancing/sweating this tip will restore your lashes back to how they were when you first bought them! 

    The lashes I’ll be cleaning today are my Yazmae Cosmetics Lashes in the styles “Dubai” & “London” Yazmae are my favourite lash brand their quality is exceptional and they have an amazing makeup artist discount!

    For this you will need:
    Fairy Liquid
    A small bowl
    A clean mascara wand
    A towel
    Kitchen roll


    I’ve been using my lashes whilst I’m creating content for 31 Days of Halloween - this particular pair is covered in lash glue and face paints - nice! So the first thing to do is carefully remove any glue from the band of the lash with tweezers. Becareful to only pinch the glue and not the band to avoid pulling out any lashes.


    The cleaning solution we’ll be using to clean our lashes with is a Fairy Liquid & Warm Water combo! Use a teaspoon of Fairy Liquid in a clean bowl and add warm (not hot) water.

    Fairy Liquid has antibacterial properties which will elimate any bacteria sitting on the lashes and it was also help to soak off any excess glue that was too difficult to remove with the tweezers.

    STEP 3 - SOAK.

    Soak your lashes in the solution for around 20 minutes. By the end of the 20 minutes you’ll be able to see all the glue that you couldn’t remove with the tweezers floating around in the solution. Try not to touch the lashes whilst they are in the solution - this is when they’re most fragile. Leave them to have a nice warm soak!


    Carefully remove the lashes from the solution with tweezers and place them on some kitchen roll. As you can see, there is lots of build up and glue that has been soaked off the lashes! Again, try not to touch the lashes as they’re fragile whilst wet.

    STEP 5 - RINSE.

    Remove all the solution from your small bowl and fill it with clean cold water. The lashes will have a lot of residue on them from the cleaning solution so it’s important to rinse this off! Place the lashes in the cold water and leave them to soak for around 3-5 minutes.

    STEP 6 - DRYING 

    Remove the lashes from the cold water and pop them on some kitchen roll to dry - they should dry within around 10 minutes! Don’t try to change the shape of them or touch them. Leave them to dry how they are!


    When the lashes are completely dry, use a clean mascara wand or spoolie, to comb through the lashes. This will reshape them back to how they were when you bought them and will seperate the lashes to get them looking nice and fluffy again!


    Pop your lashes back in their original case to keep them safe and clean. You can even clean the inside of your lash case using an antibacterial wipe (but that’s just me being a germ freak) and they’re ready to use next time you want amazing lashes! 

    I hope you found this post useful and if you do clean your lashes this way make sure you send me your process and befores and afters - I’d love to see your lovely clean lashes! Leave a comment below with your fave lash brands & how you like to clean your lashes! See you in my next post!
