Magnetic lashes have taken the world by storm. They’re more convenient than glue-on lashes, look great, and are easy to work with. 

They’re even somewhat reusable if you are careful with them. If you want to get the most out of your magnetic lashes, you need to thoroughly clean them and properly store them.

However, it is not clear to all consumers how to store magnetic lashes. They often come in thin, disposable packaging, and the manufacturers want you to throw them out so that you’ll buy more! 

Knowing how to store magnetic lashes is important. These lashes are often pretty expensive, and if you can reuse them a few times, you’ll manage to stretch your dollar. And you’ll also protect yourself from potential bacteria and eye infections.

In this article, we’ll give you everything you need to know to store your magnetic lashes.


How To Store Magnetic Lashes: The Necessary Items 

Magnetic Lashes

Here’s a short list of what you should have on hand to properly store magnetic lashes.

  • A half-moon tray or lash storage cases
  • A clean, dry drawer, case, or box to keep the lashes 
  • Cotton swab
  • A gentle soap
  • A tissue or paper towel

How To Store Magnetic Lashes: The Steps 

Below is a step-by-step overview of how to store magnetic lashes after they come off your face. 


Magnetic lashes must be cleaned before being put away. This is why a cotton swab, tissue, and soap are included in the list above.

To clean the lashes with the swab and makeup remover, place the lashes on a clean tissue or paper towel. Then simply dip the swab in the remover, let excess soap drip off, and gently wipe the base and lashes of the magnetic lashes (some like to use baby shampoo to clean lashes).

The swab should be moved from the base of the lashes to the prongs resembling eyelashes.


Leave the lashes on the tissue until they dry completely. This shouldn’t take longer than about an hour. 

Into the Tray or Case

Put the magnetic lashes either in the tray that came with the lashes or in a dedicated storage case. The trays look like this.

These trays help prevent the delicate lashes from moving around while stored. And while they are commonly included with the lashes during purchase, other trays and containers  are available online.

If you are using the tray that came with the lashes, put that in a case if you can. This adds extra protection for some peace of mind since half-moon trays can be flimsy. 

Store in a Cool, Dry Place

Store the lashes in a dry, cool place. This will help preserve the materials in the lashes, and prolong the time for which they’ll be comfortable and visually appealing.
