Applying the Lashes
Here's a step-by-step guide to applying the lashes using the LashXtend kit:
- Preparation: Before you start, make sure you have all of the tools and products you need within reach. You'll also want to make sure you have good lighting and a comfortable, well-lit space to work in.
- Cut the lash ribbon: Use the scissors to cut the lash ribbon to the desired length.
- Apply the adhesive: Use the applicator to pick up a small amount of adhesive and apply it to the individual lashes. Be sure to avoid using too much adhesive, as this can cause the lashes to clump together.
- Apply the lashes: Use the applicator to pick up the individual lashes from the ribbon and apply them to your natural lashes, starting at the base and working your way out.
- Repeat: Repeat this process until you've applied the desired number of lashes.
- Clean up: Use a Q-tip to clean up any excess adhesive that may have gotten on your skin or lashes.
- Aftercare: Use the Lash Bath to clean the lashes and keep them healthy and clean.
Removing the Lashes
Here's a step-by-step guide to removing the lashes using the LashXtend kit:
- Clean the area around your eyes thoroughly to remove any makeup or oils.
- Soak a cotton ball or pad in the Lash Bath solution provided in the kit and gently apply it to your lashes. This will help to dissolve the adhesive and make the lashes easier to remove.
- Wait for a few minutes until the Lash Bath solution has fully absorbed and softened the adhesive.
- Use the applicator provided in the kit to gently lift the lashes from your eyelid, starting from the outer corner and working your way inward. Be sure to work slowly and carefully to avoid pulling or damaging your natural lashes.
- If you have trouble removing the lashes, you can also use the Lash Remover provided in the kit to help dissolve the adhesive. Simply soak a cotton ball or pad in the remover and apply it to your lashes. Wait for a few minutes and then use the applicator to gently remove the lashes.
It's important to note that removing eyelash extensions can be a delicate process and should be done with care to avoid damaging your natural lashes. If you're not confident in your ability to remove the lashes yourself, it's best to seek the help of a professional.
After removing the lashes, be sure to clean your eyes and lashes thoroughly with a gentle cleanser to remove any residue from the adhesive and Lash Bath solution. You can also use the Lash Pad provided in the kit to gently clean your lashes and help them return to their natural state.
By using the LashXtend kit and following these steps, you'll be able to safely and effectively remove your eyelash extensions and keep your natural lashes healthy and protected.
