Quick Tip #8

Category: Makeup
For Female Models

If you've been actively modeling for a while, chances are you've probably got a nice little collection of false eyelashes. Keeping them in good shape will give you the ability to use them over and over, which is very convenient, whether there is a professional makeup artist on-site or you're responsible for your own makeup. However, over time the lashes tend to get pretty gunky and crusty from the constant application of glue--especially when it gets onto the lashes themselves, which happens sometimes. A makeup artist taught me this trick recently that saved me from having to toss out my favorite falsies:

1) Take a Q-Tip and dip it in regular rubbing alcohol...you won't need much.
2) Gently swab each false lash in one direction, repetitively where the glue is caked on.
3) Make sure to go in one direction, starting from the lash line down each time. Do not go back and forth.

After doing this for a few minutes, the caked on glue will start to dissolve and will come off. Of course it is important to do this when you are not wearing the lashes! It's also a good idea to manually peel off any layers of glue that have gathered on the lash line itself beforehand so you won't have to do as much with the alcohol. Leaving the glue on there over time will create a less than picture-perfect look. Your false lashes should look fresh for each shoot.
