Care when you get them.
When you first purchase your mink eyelashes, they will come in individual packages containing two pieces. Ideally, you should keep both pieces together so that way both sides are protected at all times. When you trim the edges of each lash strip, it is best to cut off any excess glue with scissors or nail clippers since it may dry up and cause shedding over time. Maintaining your mink lashes with these steps will help prolong their life.
To clean your mink lashes, you can use a small brush or even a piece of makeup sponge with some oil-free eye makeup remover on it. Once you have cleaned them thoroughly with the makeup remover, place them in between two pieces of cloth so they are easier to store. This will help prevent any unnecessary shedding that may occur.
Eyebrow brush wands can come in handy when you need to separate and clean the lashes individually so it helps get rid of any clumps and helps them last longer. You should also store your mink lashes lying down or with the plastic piece facing upwards instead of downwards which will help prevent the ends from touching something moist.
Care When applying them.
When you are ready to put them back on, use a pair of tweezers so you don't have to touch the lashes with your bare hands. Make sure that when you are putting them back on, they are facing the right way by looking at where it is connected to your own natural lash line. If you feel like the lashes are not sticking to your own lashes well enough, then try using a small lash glue or simply clean the area that you applied the glue and wipe off any excess.
As for regular cleaning, if you're going out in general, it is best to use warm water remover applying your mink lashes since they will get dirty from other things such as dust. However, sometimes it is inevitable to use makeup remover after you have already applied your mink lashes since they are so expensive, but try not to do this too often if possible. Also, before applying new mink eyelashes on top of the old ones, it is best to clean off any leftover glue first, or else it will not stick to the lashes well when you re-apply them.
