Removing eyelash extensions isn’t as easy as removing false eyelashes. After all they are put on with a long lasting glue that is acutally made to last until your natural lashes fall out (every three to six weeks out real lashes fall out and new ones grow in). The glue for the eyelash extensions is made to last this long. This allows for less maintenance and touch up appointments while wearing the eyelash extensions.

It is best for you to go back to the place you had the applied and ask them to remove them. They will have special tools that will help remove the eyelash extensions without causing you to lose your own lashes. The last thing you want is to be lashless.

Also if you purchased glue by itself, it very well could have came with and adhesive remover. If your kit doesn’t have the glue remover you can buy some online and be on your way to removing the extensions.
