1. CLEAN + BRUSH THEM DAILY
We recommend using an oil-free, lash extension-safe lash cleansers and makeup removers, which are the best way to keep your lashes clean and secure.
You’ll also want to make sure you brush your lashes every morning with a clean mascara wand because while you sleep your lashes can tangle and flip to the side, so the secret to keeping them in place is to brush through and fluff them gently.
2. BE GENTLE ON YOUR LASHES
As a general rule of thumb for eyelash extension care, the less you mess with your lashes, the longer they will last. So, no rubbing, tugging, or plucking when you have lash extensions! If you do a lot of rubbing and messing with your lash line, this could cause your extensions to fall off prematurely…who wants that?
3. USE AN EYELASH EXTENSION SEALANT
If you have invested in lash extensions, then you will also want to be sure to invest in a lash sealant. This product goes a long way to extend the life of the adhesive used to attach the extension to your natural lash. It locks your extensions in place for a longer period of time.
4. DON’T MISS YOUR REFILLS…LIKE, EVER!
When it comes down to it, making your extensions last longer boils down to keeping up with your lash refill appointments every two weeks. It’s the only way to keep your lash line looking full. When you come in for your lash refill appointment, your stylist will perform maintenance to freshen up your current set, then place new extensions for added fullness. When you come in for refills on the regular, you ensure a full, lush lash line and the fresh lash look we all love!
5. ONLY USE LASH EXTENSION-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Not all beauty products are okay to use with lash extensions. Be sure to stay away from waterproof mascara and any oil- or alcohol-based products or cosmetics. And yes, this includes any moisturizers with oil that are applied around the eyes.
