How To: Reuse False Eyelashes

Yes, we all have our favorite pair of eyelashes we hate to toss out, right? Well my little secret is that I will reuse them a few times before I toss them out. Not only do you get plenty of wear out of them, but you can save money, and what better way to start the year off?

Materials Needed
1 Paper Towel
1 Cup/Bowl
Clean Mascara Wand
Rubbing Alcohol
Dirty False Eyelashes
Water (Optional)

Step 1
Take 1/4 cup of alcohol and pour it into your cup or bowl. (It is optional if you will like to add water with the alcohol)

Step 2
Add your false eyelashes to the bowl of alcohol. Allow them to sit for 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 3
Take one eyelash out, place onto the paper towel, use the tweezers to remove the glue, and be very gentle.

Step 4
With one finger hold the tip of the eyelash, then use the clean mascara wand and brush through the eyelash to remove the dirt and mascara.

Step 5
Let it sit to dry.

Step 6
Then repeat.

Tip: Depending on how well the eyelashes are upkept, you can get 3 to 5 (possibly more) wears out of them by using these steps.
