The main issue here is that your natural eyelashes are going to be mixed with the extensions so you should be careful when trying to remove them. If you pull them out, chances are high that you will also remove the natural ones, so it is best to try these methods first.

The aim is to loosen the glue that holds the extension to your natural eyelashes. To do this, fill a bowl with steaming, boiled water. Do not forget to clean your face beforehand whilst avoiding the eyelash area.

To do this, you must clean your face thoroughly so you can distinguish the real eyelashes from the extension. Immerse a cotton pad in the glue remover. Pull down your eye so that the lashes are facing downward. Dab the remover across the lash line which should loosen the glue holding the false eyelashes.
