Removing eye makeup is very important both for effectively attaching lash extensions and for your client’s daily aftercare routine. However, if your client wears contact lenses regularly, using any old makeup remover might be a problem. People who always wear contact lenses are more prone to eye dryness, puffiness, and irritation.

Borboleta Break Down - Makeup Remover
Oil is usually a common cause of poor retention. When you use oil-based makeup removers to remove all the eye makeup in your client’s eyelashes, some oil residue will be left. You can remove leftover oil by using foam cleansers before applying lashes. But what happens when your client uses oil-based makeup removers daily? The bond will start to break and the lash extensions will fall off prematurely.
The makeup remover you and your client use to remove eye makeup is very important. Use Borboleta Break Down Makeup Remover! It is 100% oil-free and formulated with fatty acids. When the solution comes into contact with the makeup, it emulsifies and dissolves all residue. Even the hard-to-remove waterproof makeup can be removed by this remover. This is definitely a must-have product in your lash supplies for you and your clients.
