A beautician has revealed why it’s so important to clean her eyelashes regularly, as one of her clients’ eyelashes got gagging due to accumulation of dirt on them.
The client had come for her eyelashes treatment, but was feeling restless at her beauty technician because she had a serious layer of dirt on her eyelids and eyelashes.
tiktok account @ipsbeauty shared footage of tummy-churn in which the technician was seen wiping away the dirt—which was a mixture of makeup, oil and dirt—that covered her lids.
“So a customer came in today with dirty eyelashes… but even dirty eyelashes,” he revealed in the video, which has been viewed nearly 800k times online.
“Before attempting an eyelid cleanse, I thought I’d remove makeup, oil, and dirt buildup on the lids.”
In the video, the technician can be seen gently wiping away the buildup with a brush. He revealed: “It honestly made me giddy.
“Everyone sees the easy parts of having lash tech but no one sees the side. Well, I’m here to show you what else we have to do… It’s not all that glamorous and pretty.”
However, he acknowledged: “As gruesome as it is, cleaning it can be quite satisfying.”
He then urged onlookers to take care of their eyelashes and clean them regularly to prevent this from happening.
The technician said: “Please keep your eyelashes clean! Not only the eyelashes but the surrounding area too! This is very important for your safety.”
The post racked up hundreds of comments, with many wondering how this kind of mess could have been created in the first place.
One person said, “I don’t understand how this happens? My whole face gets washed away.”
Another commented: “How’s that? I even sleep in makeup sometimes because I’m lazy and wash in the morning and I still don’t have it?!”
A third said: “People really walk around with their eyes like this, how?”
One person said, “I know a lot of girls with eyelash extensions…NI’ve never seen it (sic),” while another said: “It’s serious.”
Meanwhile, a beauty therapist cuts off a woman’s eyelashes after her card payment fails – then calls her ‘the worst customer ever’.
Also, the beautician brands women’s lash extensions as the worst as it takes an hour to remove them.
