How to Care for Mink Lashes
Published Jan 04, 2017
Once you’ve discovered the power of false lashes, there’s no going back. Sure, it may take some time to get the hang of the application process, but once you do, there’s nothing like having the perfect eye-framing fringe at your fingertips whenever you need it. We’re especially fond of Velour Lashes’ line of mink fur falsies, which are handmade from super-soft, cruelty-free hair that feels nearly weightless on our lids. Authentic mink fur lashes, however, require some special TLC. Read on to learn how to keep your Velour Lashes in like-new condition for up to 25 wears.
Velour Lashes should be handled gently. Grasp them by the band when picking them up, avoiding the mink fur as much as possible. Don’t pull or tug when applying or removing. If you find it difficult to remove the lashes from your eyelid, dampen a cotton swab with water and rub it gently over the band to loosen the glue.
If dried glue builds up on the band of your lashes, gently peel it off with your fingertips. Remember, don’t pull or tug on the band. We recommend cleaning your lashes like this every two to three wears.
Soaking your lashes in water, makeup remover, alcohol, or any other liquid can cause damage. Clean Velour Lashes by gently removing dried glue from the band with your fingertips, like in the last step, or run a damp cotton swab along the band to loosen the glue and remove.
Mascara may damage mink fur, so don’t apply it directly to the lashes. Instead, apply mascara to your lashes first, let it dry, and then apply your Velour Lashes.
Store your lashes in the original packaging to keep them safe, clean, and protected from dust, dirt, and bacteria. This will also help maintain their shape wear after wear.
