Applying lashes takes patience, a steady hand, and micro movement. It may take some practice to perfect, but once you have nailed the technique, you can experiment with different styles and looks. However, removing lashes can be a feat in itself as well. Here is a simple step-by-step guide that can help you remove a false lash safely and cleanly:


Here is a list of what the eyelash technician will use when applying lash extensions:

  • undereye pads
  • cotton pads
  • 2 microbrush applicators
  • gel remover
  • disposable mascara wand
Step by Step Lash Removal

Step 1– A lash technician will stick the undereye pads sticky side down on the skin under the lashes and make sure that the lower lashes are covered as well with it. These can be removed easily without taking the bottom lashes with them.

Step 2– A microbrush applicator will be dipped brush end in the removing gel or liquid.

Step 3– The applicator will then be gently applied on the lashes in a downward motion to the tip of the lash line and then up to the root in a brushing motion. This will be done for the entire row of lashes on the extension. Whatever you do, don’t rub the lash line and the skin should be avoided so that the liquid or gel does not enter the eye. Wash your eye with cold water if it does get in.

Step 4– The liquid or gel will remain on the lash line for a couple of minutes.

Step 5– After the time is up, the technician will use the second microbrush applicator and brush it down and through the lashes to flake them off.

Step 6– After removing all of the eyelashes, the technician will soak a cotton pad with the appropriate solution and wipe leftover lashes, gel, and residue from the eye.

Step 7 –A disposable mascara brush will be used last to give your natural lashes a brush through.
