Lash Care

Eyelashes make one of the biggest impacts on our looks, hence all the cosmetics and serums that are made to lengthen, plump, and volumize our lashes. They make our eyes look bigger, more flirtatious and definitely command a lot of attention. Though cosmetics are effective at accentuating lashes, they fall short in comparison to the dramatic effect that wearing a pair of Boastful Blinks can offer! Once you experience the vivid effect of extra lashes, it'll be hard being satisfied with your typical makeup routine. 

 

As easy as wearing false lashes might seem, they do require proper care and the right application techniques. You do not want to be the one caught with an eyelash hanging loose or with only one false eyelash on at the end of the night. But rest assured, rogue false lashes are easily avoided with accurate application and won’t be much of a concern. Below is our complete guide on how to use and care for your new Boastful Blink lashes from A-Z!

Applying Your Boastful Blinks Lashes

Here at Boastful Blinks we have 26 kinds of lashes available made to cater to different desired looks. Whether you’re looking for something subtle and natural, dramatic and bold, or something fit for dressing up in costume, the right false lashes exist for your needs and may have different application techniques. Don't be scared - it can take some practice to get right, but practice makes perfect. 

Step #1: Curl your natural lashes

To create a shelf for your falsies to sit on, curl your natural lashes 

Step #2: Cut the falsies to fit

Cut your false lashes to perfectly fit your eyelid. You can also divide them up into smaller pieces or thin them out to create a more natural, less chunky look. Another tip is to bend them into a C shape for a few moments to help curve them into a natural eyelid shape. 

Step #3: Add your adhesive or Boastful Hold

Make sure to use a good quality adhesive, You’ll want to trace a very fine line on each of the lash bands with the adhesive, not apply it to your eyelids. However, Boastful Hold glue pen is okay to apply to skin. Wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry and become a bit tacky before applying.  

Step #4: Stick them on!

For better placement and safety, use your tweezers to apply your extensions, unless you are more comfortable with your fingers. You’ll want to start by placing the lash from the outer corner first, keeping it as close as possible to the lash line. You can try creating a cat-eye effect by placing the outer extension slightly above your natural lash line.

Step: #5 Touch it up

To help blend everything together, you can use Blink Enhance Mascara to enhance the blend. Be sure to apply mascara on your actual lash hairs, usually underneath the false lash.

Removing Boastful Blinks Lashes With Care

Your false lashes should be removed before beginning your makeup removal routine. You can soften the adhesive with a q-tip or cotton swab soaked in a good quality makeup remover, soap and water work as well.

You can also use your favorite oil such as coconut or sweet almond oil. Run your swab along the lash line. Then, grab the extension by the outer corner and slowly peel the strip away from your real lash. If you feel any pinching or resistance, then apply more oil or makeup remover and wait a little longer before trying again. 

Boastful Blink Lash Hygiene

It is recommended that you clean your lash strips to help keep bacteria away from your eye that could cause redness and agitation. You can also prolong the life of your lashes by cleaning them. 

Step #1: Peel off the glue residue

If you look closely enough, you'll see the remaining strip of adhesive stuck on the base of your lash extensions. You'll want to peel the remaining off so it’s ready to be re-glued during their next use. 

Step #2: Create a cleaning solution

Fill a small bowl or sink with warm water and a little bit of soap. 

Step #3: Clean the lashes

Submerge your false lashes into your water/cleaning solution and gently rub them to encourage mascara or other makeup to dissolve off of them. 

Step #4: Let them dry

Check the lashes for any remaining residue, and then set them in a clean place to dry. If you're in a hurry, you can also pat them dry. 

If you neglect to clean your lashes, you'll have a hard time reapplying them next time and soon you'll have false lashes caked in makeup. By keeping them nice and clean, you'll get more uses out of them in the long run and keep your eyes safe and bacteria-free! At least 50 wears! 

Now that you know what’s involved in the application, removal, and cleaning process of false lashes, you can see that using them isn't so intimidating. The first couple of times you try, you may fumble a bit while putting them on, but getting a good sturdy brand such as Boastful Blinks help make it easier.
