Eyelash Extensions

If you just received eyelash extensions, it is likely that you have a few questions for your salon technician. Understanding how you can make your eyelash extensions last as long as possible and look their best can mean answering some of these important questions. Here are some of the things that you should know after your eyelash extension appointment:

Asking For Salon Supplies

Most salons will set up their clients with a series of supplies after an eyelash extension takes place. One of the most important supplies that you’ll receive is a spoolie comb. This type of comb is designed to help you manage tangled lashes in a gentle format. Spoolies will get between the lashes and offer a simple way that you can maintain your eyelash extensions without damaging them.

Makeup And Aftercare

You can use oil free cosmetics with any type of eyelash extensions. Any type of oil-based cosmetics will weaken the bonds that hold your eyelash extensions in place. Avoiding waterproof mascara is also crucial as it can be extremely difficult to remove from false eyelashes.  Pencil eyeliner can also be important to remove as this can contain oil which can weaken the glue on your eyelash extensions around the lash line.

Cleaning With Care

When You first get eyelash extensions it’s important to avoid washing or touching your eyes for roughly 12 hours after the appointment. Make sure that you remove any type of eye makeup before you go to bed and work at gently cleaning your eyelashes using the spoolie brush. If you would like to wear any makeup, make sure that it is lightly applied to your eyelash extensions as it can be difficult to remove with water-based cleansers when applied heavily. You can definitely get eyelash extensions wet, but avoiding intense rubbing of the eyes or scrubbing is crucial to maintaining the strength of your eyelash adhesive.
