How Do I Care for my Eyelash Extensions?

Your eyelash extensions need some extra care and attention to ensure they keep looking good between fills. Some of this maintenance can include:

  • Not using oil-based cleansers and / or makeup removers, as they can cause the lash glue to fail
  • Avoiding applying mascara over extensions, as removing it can snag the extensions and cause them to fall out
  • Being careful when washing your eye area, as any movement of the lashes will increase the chance of the lash falling out or getting twisted
  • Not letting water from the shower fall directly on your face, as hard water pressure can loosen the lash
  • Not rubbing your face with a towel, or pressing your face too hard (for example, in to a pillow while sleeping)
  • Using a dry mascara wand at least once a day (in the morning, or several times during the day) as needed, to comb through your lashes and gently straighten them out – just be sure not to tug too much, as they can loosen and fall out
  • Being careful how you apply make up, avoiding oil-based skin care products around the eyes, or greasy eye pencils and concealers, as they will breakdown the eyelash glue and cause it to fail early
