We all know the beauty industry are making money by getting you to think that you have problems with the way yourself naturally. We also know that makeup can be fun and creative to play around with.

Both of these things can lead to any woman doing something that might actually mess with her looks more.

Let’s use eyelashes as an example. There are some things many of us do to make our eyelashes appear more long, full, and perfectly curled, like applying mascara and curling them with a tool but actually, over time, these things do the opposite.

Well let us tell you this, your eyelashes are more delicate than the hair that grows out of your skin, and your eyelid skin is more sensitive than anything else, so you need to be a little more careful when dealing with them. If you want to ensure that your lashes stay long and lush, avoid doing these things that are probably ruining them.

Take a minute and discover the 5 everyday mistakes you probably don’t know can ruin your eyelashes!

1. Sleeping with makeup on

We get it—nobody feels like washing their face after a long day, particularly struggling with stubborn waterproof mascara. But keeping your makeup on while you sleep not only leads to breakouts, but is also a top cause of eyelash damage. One of the ways mascara works is by making eyelashes stiff, so they are incredibly prone to breakage once it’s on. Hitting the bed with the formula on crunches your lashes against the pillow surface, and they may break in the process because of their already brittle state. Sharon Lipetz Gjieli, owner of Makeup By Lips LLC, shares, “Always have makeup wipes or makeup remover in your nightstand for the lazy nights when washing your face just isn’t an option.” As a rule of thumb, if you invest a lot of time into applying makeup, be sure to invest the same amount of time into taking it off. (In case you’re wondering, this is how bad it really is to sleep in your makeup).

2. Curling your lashes after applying mascara

Who doesn’t love curling their lashes? One squeeze with the magical contraption and your eyelashes instantly look three times longer. But you must, must, must curl them before you swipe on mascara. “In general, if you’re using eyelash curlers, then you must use them correctly–before you apply mascara and not too close to the lash rim. This will damage the eyelash cuticles and cause lash breakage,” Sabah Feroz of Blink Brow Bar advises, If you’ve been confused as to why there are so many lash strands stuck between your curler, now you know. Find out the mascara hacks you’ll wish you had known all along.

3. Rubbing your eyes

Many girls can attest to this habit; after all, it’s just so darn satisfying. Even so, it may be best to sit on your hands next time to get the urge. Rubbing your eyes too vigorously can damage your entire eye, eyelashes included. Being gentle when it comes to anything with the eyes is key—also keep that in mind when scrubbing away mascara and drying your face. Learn about more body parts you should never touch.

4. Eyelash extensions

Although eyelash extensions are definitely a shortcut to long, lush enviable lashes, don’t indulge too often and always go to a reputable salon. “I refuse to put on a lash extension that is too heavy or too long for a natural lash,” shares Talin Haghnazarian, licensed cosmetologist. “You can cause permanent damage to your follicle or cause the lash to prematurely fall out.” If you want longer lashes in the long term, consider using Latisse, which is approved by the FDA, for longer, thicker lashes.

It’s the end of a special night out, and you can’t wait to get those falsies off so you can remove your makeup and crash. But rip them off, and you may take some of your precious natural lashes with them, says Kate Stromberg, celebrity makeup artist at COLOR Salon in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The gentlest way to remove them is to soak a Q-tip in an oil-based cleanser to loosen the adhesive on the lash line. “Then gently pull from the middle of the falsie outward to protect yourself from serious damage.”
