Eyelash Extensions Do’s and Don’ts!

Updated: Mar 16

If you're ready to get eyelash extensions then take a moment are read below as we've broken down exactly how you should prep for your appointment and take care of your extensions after the treatment!

Prior to Your Appointment

  • If you have extremely fair eyelashes we recommend you have them tinted before your eyelash extension appointment

  • Please remove any mascara prior to the appointment otherwise it will take time away from your extension appointment

  • Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your extension appointment as it'll make it diffucult for us to arrange the extensions

  • If you wear contact lenses please bring your contact lens case as your lenses will need to be removed

After Your Appointment


DO

  • Allow 24-hours drying time before getting lashes wet

  • Be gentle with your new extensions –  The golden rule is: look but don’t touch.Clean lashes to remove any makeup or oil build up – use cotton swabs to remove make up by working gently around your eyelashes.

  • Brush lashes daily with provided spoolie and refrain from picking.

  • Use a serum to hydrate and keep your lashes looking healthy and strong.

  • Avoid wearing mascara since this will lessen the life of your extensions, if you must wear mascara, only use water-based mascara, please do not use waterproof or oil-based mascara as removing this is difficult to do without damaging your natural eyelashes.

  • Book regular touch-ups every 2-3 weeks to keep lash volume.


DON'T

  • Avoid swimming, steam rooms, saunas, or extreme heat for 48 hours after application.

  • When drying your face do not rub instead blot your face and apply gentle.

  • Refrain from drying with a towel or a blow dryer –  it's best to allow the extensions to dry naturally.

  • Do not use eye make-up remover that contains oil as it will effect the adhesive.

  • Do not use an eyelash curler on the lash extensions or try to perm or tint them, this will break the bond on the extensions and might damage your natural lashes.

  • Avoid sleeping face down to prevent pressing against your extensions.

  • Do not pull on any loose extensions or you RISK plucking out your natural eyelashes.

  • Do NOT attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself; allow the extensions to fall off naturally or schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed.
