The next step is cleaning the lashes. This can be done in many ways. You can either use alcohol, using a cotton swab or you can use eye make-up remover. (Make-up remover may not work for everyone, simply because it can be messy if it contains too much oil, however you can try to soak the eyelashes in a small container using eye make-up remover). Be sure to gently pull off all of the glue and mascara as well. If you are still having difficulties, try using a pair of tweezers to remove the glue. While removing the glue and cleaning, use a paper towel to dry the eyelashes. Once they are dry, you can wear them once again - it's that easy! One thing to consider is that for cheaper brand lashes, they may lose their natural curl once you wash and dry them. But if you go up a notch in quality, you'll likely see the curl return just as new, even after the wash!
