Do False Lashes Damage Real Lashes?

A false lash can really put some ‘wow’ into your lash line, but does it come at a cost? We decided it was time to find out whether you can really get the beauty without the breakage. Want to know the answer? Read on! 

Are false lashes safe? 

False lashes are designed to be 100% safe, but it is still possible to damage your real lashes when using them. 


How can they damage my real lashes? 

When we talk about a falsie damaging your real lashes, we’re not actually talking about the false lash itself. Instead, it’s the stuff that happens around the lash that’s the problem. Want to know who the main culprits are?  

Harmful Glues 

Your false lash needs to be attached to your real lashes and most brands do this by using a glue or adhesive. But if the glue you buy contains toxins or if you are allergic to certain ingredients, it can irritate the skin along your lash line, damaging the hair follicles of your real lashes. 

Poor Technique 

Removing false lashes takes a delicate touch. If you rip your false lashes off before gently loosening the glue that has been holding them in place, there’s a good chance you could break some of your real lashes. 


It’s great that you can wear falsies again and again, but if bacteria are allowed to build up along your lash line this can damage the roots of your real lashes, stymieing your natural lash growth and increasing shedding.  

So, what can you do to avoid all of this? 

Prevention Tips 

1) Always patch test your lash glue before using it to ensure it doesn’t provoke a reaction. We suggest picking a small section of skin on your forearm or behind your ear. 

2) Learn how to safely apply and remove your false lashes with ease. 

3) Clean your false lashes regularly.
