Have you discovered the magic of eyelash extensions? If not, you’re definitely missing out! Extensions can give you thick, dark, lush lashes and you don’t need mascara for eyelash extensions which cuts your makeup routine in half.
Synthetic lashes have a curved, natural look and are attached to your own lashes on a lash-by-lash basis. The look is so natural that no one will even suspect that the lashes are not your own. With extensions, your eyes will look amazing without eye makeup, even when you first wake up in the morning. Maintenance is minimal, but here are some tips to keep your lashes looking gorgeous.
Will My Lashes Stay in Place During Normal Activities?
Eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes with a long-lasting non toxic waterproof adhesive, so they stay in place while you sleep, swim, exercise or shower. Sleep on your back for the first day or two after application so the adhesive can fully dry. Avoid steam rooms and saunas as steam can loosen the adhesive. Don’t rub your eyes, run water directly on your lashes or use a mechanical eyelash curler. If you must curl your lashes, use a heated lash curler.
Can I Still Wear Mascara and Other Eye Makeup?
Most women find that mascara isn’t necessary because the extensions are so thick and dramatic. If you do use mascara, use the water based kind. Oil based mascara and waterproof mascara can dissolve the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall out. Apply mascara only from the middle of your lashes to the tips. Use water based eye makeup remover towelettes to clean off mascara and eye makeup. Don’t use cotton balls or Q tips because the cotton fibers might get stuck in your extensions.
How Can I Keep My Lashes Fresh and Beautiful?
Apply a drop of baby oil to your fingertip and run it over lashes at night to keep them flexible and lubricated. Regular gentle combing with a spoolie wand will keep your lashes smooth and natural-looking.
When Will I Need an Eyelash Extension Touch Up?
A complete set of lash extensions without touch ups will last for up to two months. If you go in for touch ups every two or three weeks, you can maintain the original look indefinitely.
Are you ready to look naturally gorgeous? Eyelash extensions will give you eyes that say “wow” with no fuss and muss. With extensions, you’ll spend less time on your makeup and don’t even need mascara for eyelash extensions, so you will have more time looking fabulous and having fun.
