5 Ways You Could be Ruining Your Eyelashes

These common habits can leave you with skimpy lashes or permanent damage.

1. You're curling your lashes after you apply mascara. 

This stiffens the lashes, which makes it easier for clumps to break off. Doing this can also cause weird bends in the lash pattern over time.

2. You're attaching fake lashes the wrong way. 

If you're a constant falsies wearer, you might have noticed your lashes thinning or even falling out. This could be a symptom of overusing faux fringe, applying heavy double layers, or removing them improperly. Never yank them off! Instead, take a cotton bud and rub oil along the lash line to loosen up the glue.

3. You're not using the right makeup remover. 

An oil-based remover will be most gentle on your lashes, especially if you're wearing a waterproof mascara.

4. You're wearing waterproof mascara every day. 

No matter what kind of makeup remover you use, there's going to be extra tugging and hairs are more likely to fall out. Even worse? The increased rubbing action can cause skin to sag around the delicate eye area. Waterproof formulas should be reserved for special occasions, like weddings and Ryan Gosling movie marathons.

5. You're not practising proper hygiene. 

Much like the pores on your face, hair follicles can get clogged as they contain oil glands. This causes inflammation that could result in hair loss and/or lashes to grow in different directions. Be sure to cleanse your lashes daily, as you would your face, and try not to touch them with your dirty fingers.
