When used correctly and with proper care, false eyelashes won’t cause damage to your real lashes. Please keep in mind the following tips to ensure that your natural lashes remain healthy:

Choose High-Quality Lashes: Opt for high-quality false eyelashes made from safe materials. Cheap or low-quality lashes may be more likely to cause irritation or damage to your natural lashes. Lash Republic delivers the most natural, handcrafted 100% human hair high quality lashes that is safe to use.

Apply Carefully: Applying false eyelashes should be done gently to avoid tugging or pulling on your natural lashes. Use a tweezer to handle the lashes and place them as close to your natural lash line as possible. You can apply your false lashes like a PRO with the Lash Republic False Eyelash Applicator Tool.

Avoid Excessive Use: Wearing false eyelashes every day without giving your natural lashes a break can lead to strain and weakening. Allow your natural lashes to breathe by going without false lashes for periods of time.

Remove Properly: Removing false eyelashes requires patience and care. Use an oil-based makeup remover to dissolve the adhesive before gently peeling off the false lashes. Pulling them off forcefully can damage your real lashes.

Cleanse Your Lashes: If you use false eyelashes regularly, it's important to keep your natural lashes and eyelid area clean. Use a mild, oil-free cleanser to remove any makeup residue and prevent potential infections.

Moisturize and Condition: Consider using a lash serum or oil to keep your natural lashes moisturized and conditioned, promoting their health and growth.

Check for Allergies: Some individuals might be allergic to the adhesive or materials used in false eyelashes. Test a small area before applying them to ensure you don't have an adverse reaction.

Avoid Sleeping with Them: It's generally recommended to remove false eyelashes before sleeping to avoid any accidental tugging or damage during the night.

Consult a Professional: If you're unsure about applying false eyelashes yourself, consider getting them applied by a professional makeup artist or technician who has experience in the process. Feel free to get in touch with Emma McFarlane, the director of Lash Republic by Milan & Co. We are always happy to help with any query about false eyelashes.


While false eyelashes can be a fun and effective way to enhance your look, it's important to use them responsibly and carefully to prevent any potential damage to your natural lashes. If you notice any signs of irritation, redness, or lash loss, it's best to discontinue use and consult a dermatologist or eye specialist.
