Up to now, no beauty experts recommend sleeping with false eyelashes on your eyes.
Especially with strip lashes, strip lashes tend to irritate the delicate skin around your eyes.
However, you are still completely asleep with the eyelash extensions, as the extension of the eyelash extension is to attach it to the lashes (not to the skin).
As for false eyelashes, this is a form of using glue and sticking directly to the area of your eyelids.
It is not safe to leave it overnight.
And especially when it comes to sleeping on your stomach, both types of lashes do not encourage tummy sleep. It is harmful to your lashes and eye area.
If you tend to sleep on your stomach, quickly buy a silk pillow for a more comfortable sleep.
Besides, silk pillows are an excellent anti-frizz treatment for your hair!
False eyelashes you can sleep in?
If you are a person who wears false eyelashes, have you ever wondered if you can sleep overnight with them?
The straightforward answer is no. Why?
The false eyelashes and eyelash glues can dry, itch, and irritate the skin around the eyes.
Most of today’s false eyelash extensions contain formaldehyde, which is known to cause conjunctivitis.
In short, false eyelashes are only suitable for you to use during the day, at night before going to bed to remove them immediately from your eyes.
Even makeup too is exceptionally harmful to your face if left overnight.
It is best to let your body sleep overnight in a clean state.👌👌👌
If 1 night I forgot to remove the false lashes?
Although one night you forget to get rid of your false lashes, it probably won’t do any harm, especially on the days when you’re drunk or exhausted.
Even so, it’s best to take a few minutes to remove false lashes, makeup, or anything else on your face before going to bed.
As mentioned, a single nap with still sticky eyelashes is probably not going to hurt. But if this is happening to you every day, you’d better limit this habit, or you might end up with very sparse lashes while still young.
In the short term, wearing false eyelashes regularly while sleeping can lead to infection and soreness.
3 reason should not sleep with false lashes
1. False lashes contain chemicals
The false eyelashes are made of chemicals by themselves, and so the makeup products, especially if they are not focused on quality.
False lashes stick to a patch or adhesive, depending on the type. It’s generally not a good thing, but when you wear it for a few hours to curl your lashes and then take it off properly, then it should still be fine.
As we said, it can irritate the skin around your eyes if you sleep overnight. Your eyes will be inflamed, red, infected, not a beautiful look any women want to aim for.
2. False eyelashes can damage natural lashes
False eyelashes will essentially harm your hair follicles, which inadvertently causes your natural lashes to fall off and stop the growth cycle of real eyelashes.
Therefore, if you tend to use false lashes, you need to use good quality false lashes.
False lashes are only suitable for sometimes, not for every day.
You should also not wear them every day. If you want full lashes, you should consider switching to eyelash extensions.
3. Increased risk of eye infections
Using false lashes requires removing them every night. However, it would be best if you were careful when removing them.
If removed incorrectly, it can lead to the risk of eye infection.
Eyelashes are born with a mechanism that prevents dust from getting into your eyes. Unfortunately, false eyelashes do not enhance this protection. Their ultimate goal is to make your lashes look fuller and flattering.
It’s a great way to get an impressive look for a special occasion. But for everyday wear, it puts you at risk with a much higher risk of infection than usual.
If you’re going to put on false lashes on yourself, you should always use high-quality products. They should only be used for a special occasion, such as a wedding day. The less you wear false lashes, the better your real eyelashes will be.

Question: Can I fall asleep with false eyelashes on?
🗨️ Jessica H: If I sleep with false eyelashes on, will they come off? Can I take my makeup off and leave them on? How long do they stay on for?
🗨️ Shanae J.
I think it depends on the type of false lashes you purchased. Cheap ones will come off easily. I believe higher quality lashes stay on a couple of days. I’m not 100% sure, though.
🗨️ Chantz E.
No, don’t. I did that, and I got an infection. Those have to be eyelash extensions.
🗨️ Shanae J.
That could’ve been prone to something else, though.
🗨️ Cat C.
It’s likely that leaving the eyelashes overnight aggravated any potential eye infection. I would say not to leave them on. The glue could irritate your eyes, seal bacteria, etc.
It’s not necessarily sanitary and may be uncomfortable too. I would suggest last extensions if you really want to keep the look overnight.
🗨️ Jessica H.
Can I take them off and put the same ones back on? or can I only use them once.
🗨️ Hannah K.
It is certainly possible to wear your falsies, but I do NOT recommend trying to sleep in them. Give your eyes a break overnight, and take the falsies off as well. If you treat them nicely, you can wear them a lot before they start showing wear and tear.
🗨️ Cat C.
That depends. What brand are they?
Either way, you can use lashes more often if:
1) You clean and sanitize the band and
2) If you don’t apply mascara on the actual lashes.
Mink lashes or higher quality made lashes you can use 20 + times. They are after pricier, but you can use them more.
Ardell, red cherry, and any other cheaper ones can’t be used more than a couple of times.
🗨️ Ashley D.
May I ask why you want to sleep in them? I wouldn’t recommend it, and since you can wear lashes if you wanted to have the same look the next day, you can.
No need to risk an eye infection or irritation. If you were looking for full-looking lashes and didn’t want to apply false lashes every day, I would recommend lash extensions.
🗨️ Jenny C.
I’ve slept in mine after homecoming & when I woke up. My eyes were glued shut for almost 15 minutes.
🗨️ Brittany F.
You can reuse lashes If that is your main concern. Strip lashes are much too heavy for prolonged wear and can damage your lashes. The moisture from sleeping can also cause the glue to drip and harm your eyes or natural lashes.
🗨️ Gabby M.
I really don’t recommend it, but I’ve slept in them once (cause I took a nap in the middle of the day and already had makeup on, 😂), and since false lashes are usually a lot longer, mine got all bent and weird on the side I slept on 🙁
Plus, it’s probably awful for your lashes& eyelids because of the glue (generally wearing any makeup on your face while sleeping is bad, though), so I guess the answer is yes, you can, but it would be bad for your eyes and false lashes. 😛
🗨️ Dollfaycedd A.
Nothing will happen except if you are wearing strip eyelashes, they will bend. I went through a phase of sleeping in makeup, including my lashes, and the only thing that was damaged was the lashes.
If you’re wearing individual lashes, you’re wonderful. Those don’t mess up, but you might lose a lash or two if you sleep rough. 😊 I’m not encouraging you to sleep in your lashes.
Is there any way to make eyelashes longer than using false lashes?
1. Use eyelash enhancers
One of the products that can help keep eyelashes naturally long is eyelash enhancer products.
There are many products on the market today that can provide eyelash improvement.
And keep in mind that these products do not have a permanent effect on your actual lashes. Your lashes will return to normal as soon as you stop using them.
2. Consider an eyelash extension
If you want a full-fledged look like false lashes but don’t want to have some trouble using it, you should consider getting extensions.
Eyelash extensions are a convenient method for busy women because it can cut down a lot of time spent on preparation and makeup.
Eyelash extensions are a semi-permanent, long-lasting, natural beauty method.
However, it needs to be done by a professional technician. You cannot do it yourself, like using false eyelashes.
They will last 6 to 8 weeks, depending on how you handle your care. They fall out naturally like your regular lashes, so you’ll need to go back to work from time to time if you want to maintain this look.
It is definitely a safer and better alternative to false lashes, although it’s not cheap. But if you do the math, it can be more efficient overall.
But if this is the look you want every day, then eyelash extensions can definitely be the solution to fuller lashes.
