How to wear strip lashes in hot weather


It’s the season of hot, sunny days.

Great news for your tan… not so great for your falsies.

Whether you’re enjoying the high temps at home or jetting off to a tropical destination, the reality is, false lashes can sometimes struggle in the heat and humidity. Becoming a little trickier than usual to put on and a little more likely to ping up at the corners.

But don’t panic. No need to go bare or rely solely on your clumpy mascara.

Here we’ve rounded up a few quick and easy ways to summer-proof your favourite strip lashes and keep them secure and fresh – even when the mercury hits 40˚.

5 tips for false lash perfection in the sun

1. Choose your strips wisely

Not all strip eyelashes are created equal.

If you want to ensure they stay stuck on the balmiest of days, it’s worth investing in a higher-quality brand, such as Dose of Lashes. Crafted from premium and innovative lash fibres, all of their false eyelashes are lightweight and comfy – making them a savvy choice for when things start to heat up.

Similarly, it’s also worth choosing a natural, wispy or half-lash style.

Designed to look like ‘your lashes just better’, these are typically lightweight and easy to wear – and will add just the right amount of volume and length to create a fresh, radiant summer look.

2. Waterproof is the way

Heading to the beach club? Lazing around the pool? Jet skiing with Pablo in Croatia?

Whatever the plan for your hot girl summer, if it involves water, waterproof lashes are an absolute must. Mink styles are a big no-no. But any falsies made from synthetic fibres should be fine.

Some lash glues also tend to dissolve when exposed to humidity, sweat or water. So if there’s a chance you could get hot, bothered or wet on your hols, it’s worth investing in a high-quality lash adhesive – which is easy to use, resistant to UV rays and (crucially) fully waterproof.

3. Keep things clean

Most false eyelashes are now designed for re-use, with some suitable for wearing up to 30+ times. But, to keep them looking their best, they need a little TLC – especially when temps start to rise.

One of the best things you can do to protect your lashes in the hot weather is to keep them clean.

Sweat and oil can very quickly build up, making them look clumpy and feel heavy. And if the lash band itself is dirty, your adhesive won’t be as effective as usual. So after every use, be sure to clean them using a makeup remover – gently wiping the base and lash hairs to remove any residue.

It’s also worth placing them back in their original packaging to help maintain their shape.

4. Avoid oily face products

Fact – if it’s hot outside, your skin produces more oil. Add in sunscreens and oily face products such as heavy moisturisers, makeup removers and face serums, and it spells trouble for your strip lashes.

These excess oils can actually break down your lash adhesive, leading to premature fall-off.

It goes without saying that you 100% need SPF protection – but to prevent any mid-day falsie fails, try to use a light, oil-free option. And avoid using any other oil-based products for the foreseeable.

5. Remember your sunnies

As much as you want to show them off, prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause significant damage to your fan-like falsies – in some cases, causing them to lose their overall shape and colour.

Of course, no fashion-conscious babe would be without their shades on a sunny day…but it’s worth investing in a decent pair of sunglasses just for the sake of your fake eyelashes. 100% UV protection is the way to go.

Or, if you really don’t want to hide your strips behind a pair of Ray-Bans, a wide-brimmed sun hat should also provide enough shade to do the trick.

The best falsies for sunnier climes

As long as you have the right strip lashes and some basic lash-care knowledge, there’s no need to give up your falsies for the summer – no matter how hot and humid it gets.

Whether you’re hitting the seaside, enjoying a hot day in the city, or just slowly melting away in the office, follow the simple steps above and wear your fave false lashes with confidence. Heatwave or not, they’re sure to look as stunning as ever.
