OK, let’s say we’ve put our false lashes on, partied like rock stars, and now it’s time to get ready for bed.
What now? How do we actually remove the darned things?
Well, I have a confession… I’m totally guilty of just ripping those suckers off, mostly with pairs that felt heavy or uncomfortable for some reason, and I JUST COULD NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE.
I’ve actually done this more times than I can count (even though I knew it was terribly unwise). Once it was halfway through a fancy party. Mid-mingling I suddenly said, “Please excuse me for a moment. I need to remove these false lashes because they’re driving me completely insane.”
Ripping those bad boys off is quick (rrrrrrip!), but it’s also risky. You could, and probably will, tear out some of your natural lashes with the falsies, and when you barely have any lashes to start with (like me), that’s ill-advised.
