First remove your old eyelash extensions
Perhaps you still have remnants of your last eyelash extension left stuck behind and your messy eyelashes are bothering you? You may not want to risk pulling out your natural eyelashes along with the extension remnants? Rest assured, there is now a Gel Remover available meant specially for eyelash glue. You can use this to remove the last remnants of stuck eyelashes gently and carefully by yourself, without damaging your natural eyelashes.
Incidentally, here is an instructional video on gentle eyelash removal.
Thereafter, eyelash serum takes care of accelerating eyelash growth
When the old eyelash extensions are out and you get that strange feeling of being “naked”. You can always us this time until your next eyelash extension application to stimulate the growth of your natural eyelashes.
For that we would like to recommend the XXL Lashes eyelash serum, which is known for its effectiveness and is a frontrunner among peer products. It helps you develop long, thick and strong eyelashes and brings about quick growth of natural eyelashes.
Regular use brings marked growth in eyelashes within 4 weeks itself. Just apply thinly once or twice daily on the eyelids and that’s all. It is an easy enough step to integrate into your daily beauty regimen.
How about eyelash fillers and magnetic eyeliners
Until then, you can of course dig deeper into the bag of tricks and make do with the magnetic eyeliner set. Simply apply eyeliner and place your favourite row of eyelashes directly on it. The advantages over the much-touted magnetic strip eyelashes are obvious: since the artificial eyelashes are not attached to the natural eyelashes, they cannot damage the eyelash roots and thereby impede healthy growth of eyelashes. Strip eyelashes are, of course, re-useable.
Incidentally, the eyeliner works for any commercially available strip eyelashes.

Straightened eyelashes are the quickest route to add glow and vivaciousness to your overall look.
