After your extensions have been applied and you’re looking gorgeous, stay away from water and steam until 48 hours have passed! During this period, the glue is still setting, and if your lashes are disturbed or exposed to water, they could fall out early. You can still shower, just make sure you don’t put your head under the water and whatever you do, don’t rub your eyes! This is THE biggest tip on making those extensions last longer
This might be hard if you’re used to sleeping on your front, but sleeping with your face pressed against the pillow is a no-no if you want your extensions to last. All that pressure on your lashes can make them fall out, so sleep on your back from now on.
When taking off your make-up or cleansing your eyes, use oil-free products, as the oil can affect the bonds of your eyelash extensions. Our oil-free Eye Make-Up Remover has been specifically formulated for use on the eye area. To use, simply apply to wet cotton wool and gently smooth around the closed eye area until all make-up is removed. Our new for 2017 Lash & Lid Foaming Cleanser is also a must have for keeping your lash extensions clean and looking their best. Use with our Cleansing Brush.
Using a mascara wand, brush your eyelashes morning and night to keep them in the right place and looking pristine. For lash addicts and regular extensions wearers, pick up one of our Lash & Brow Tools along with a selection of accessories such as; Mini Mascara Wands, Brushes or Combs.
No matter how careful you are with your eyelash extensions, you will naturally lose them over time due to your lash cycle. To make those extensions last longer, go back to the salon every 2-3 weeks for an infill.
