Storing Your False Lashes Between Uses

If you’re new to false lashes, you most likely have a ton of questions regarding caring for them. How do you store them? How long should they last? I’ve got your answers.

Just so you know, there really is no right or wrong as far as storing your false lashes as long as they are clean, dry, and protected from potential bacteria. Other than that, you can get a little creative.

Storing False Lashes

I have something similar to this container:

But, you can certainly keep the original packaging that your lashes came in and put them right back into it, if that’s what you want to do. Truth be told, that might be the best way to store your lashes because the container will help your lash bands keep their shape and form. 

Just make sure to store your lashes in a container that encloses them and protects them from dust and bacteria. The cleaner and drier your lashes remain, the lower your chances are of getting a nasty eye infection. 

How Long Do False Lashes Last?

Okay, so this is not the easiest question to answer because of the variables involved with false lashes. First of all, not all false lashes are made with the same level of quality. Obviously, the higher quality lashes, the longer they will last.

Another variable is how well the lashes are taken care of. I already talked about storing the lashes clean and dry. Cleaning your lashes properly is a vital step in making them last as many uses as possible. I’ve already talked about that in another post that you can check out if you want the deets. 

I don’t recommend using a pair of lashes more than a week, though. Some may only last 2 or 3 wears and others may last 4 or 5, but there is only so much you can do to clean your lashes and they can only withstand so many cleanings. Please don’t try to make your false lashes last longer than a week. 

You’re asking for eye infections at that point. For the more cheaply made pairs, you will probably find that they only last one or two wears and are difficult to clean. Toss them out and next time, when you have a better idea of which type of lashes you like, invest a package with multiple pairs in it.
