    This is going to sound like such a silly question but I have never used eyelash adhesive before so how do you take it off? I have very sensitive skin and am worried about how to take the tikka off.
    Very helpful tutorial by the way, thank you! πŸ™‚ xx

      Thanks! It’s actually very easy to remove the adhesive. It should peel off pretty easily, if not just wash the area with face wash and it will come off.
