Eyelash Extension Tweezers: Tweezer Care Tips 

Now that you've found the tweezers right for you. Next, it's up to you to make them last.

  • Tweezers for thin lash extensions and thicker lash extensions should not be used at the same time. Because tweezers used for larger lashes require less tension, your tweezers will eventually become too loose to pick up the finer eyelash extensions.
  • Remove any adhesive from the tweezers as soon as possible. The adhesive on tweezers can cause an imbalance in the weight distribution of the tweezers, resulting in damage to tweezers. 
  • To remove the discoloration, use tweezer cleaner or an eyelash adhesive remover.

  • Tweezers should not be tapped against a hard surface, such as a lash palette because the tip is extremely small and delicate.
  • Use a non-slip surface, such as a Silicone Work Pad, to keep the tweezers in place.
  • When not in use, store the tweezers in the provided tweezer case or tweezer stand.
