Can I cut my eyelashes?

Many of us love longer and thicker lashes because they make our eyes alluring and beautiful. However, as with anything else in life, too much of one thing can be bad.  

So… The answer is Yes! ✂️😍 

But why should you cut your fake or natural eyelashes? 

You may want to shorten your eyelashes (natural or fake) for many reasons. 

We'll drop a few: 

  • You feel more comfortable with shorter lashes. 
  • You wear glasses or contact lenses, and long eyelashes may hamper your vision. 
  • Trimming your lashes a bit every 8 weeks, just like you would trim your hair 💇, will stimulate the lash follicles to grow longer, fuller, and faster. 
  • Cutting your new set of fake eyelashes will ensure that they fit your eyelids and eyeshape perfectly. Not only can you trim the length of your false lashes, but also their width. This prevents them from poking out from the sides. 

How to cut your Eyelashes? 

Cutting both your natural and fake eyelashes is a piece of cake. But, you'll need to take your time.  

When trimming your natural lashes, avoid distractions and pay attention to avoid hurting your eyes. Do it in a room with good lighting and sit in a position facing a mirror. You'll need just a pair of small scissors.

Now that you are prepared, let's walk you through this simple process. 

To trim natural eyelashes: 

  • Open your eyes, and carefully trim your lashes starting from the inside corner (close to the nose) to the outside corner. 
  • Repeat the same for the other eye, and use a mirror to see if both lengths are equal. 

Voilá! Your eyes are shining with well-trimmed lashes. 🤩🤩 

To trim fake eyelashes: 

  • Simply pick up your false lashes and place the tapered end against your lash line about a quarter of an inch from the corner of your eye.  
  • If they extend out further than your eyes, then you should give them a trim. 
  • Repeat the process for the other eye. 

Now your eyes are happy 😍 and your lashes are good to go! 💃
