“But that’s an unacceptable way to show up for your lash appointment!”

She added that the residual makeup on the eyelashes came from “weeks and weeks” of not washing her face.

“You can see this client has never cleaned her eyelashes,” the user, ips beauty, continued.

“Look how stubborn this makeup is! It’s layers and layers over weeks and weeks!”

She concluded, “You can’t be mad when your lash tech has to take them out if you show up like that.”

The comments section was quickly flooded with people supporting the poster, with one person writing, “Totally on your side! It’s literally dangerous to keep them like this!!”

“I’m shocked people don’t clean something THIS CLOSE TO THEIR EYEBALL,” another person commented.

“So many things could go wrong, y’all are giving me heart palpitations.”

One person suggested the eyelash technician sell shampoo to customers as “a subtle but clear hint” on how to keep them clean.

And she replied: “They are given follow-up cards with clear instructions on how to care for them and what to clean them with, some just think it’s no big deal!”

However, someone else argued that it was part of the technician’s job to clean the eyelashes.

The majority of people were on the technician's side, agreeing that the condition of the eyelashes was unacceptable

“No, do your job and charge for cleaning. Should people show up at the salon with their hair washed too?” they wrote.

But not everyone accepted this explanation, with one replying: “It’s not the same as not washing your hair. expect the hairdresser to do it for you.”
