Don’t pick, pull or twist your extensions - you will take your natural lash with it. You have been warned - the choice is yours!
Get plenty of it. Just don’t lie face down(easier said than done after a wild night out) , as you will crush your lashes and risk them becoming entangled.
4. Eye Makeup
Eyeshadow and kohl liner tend to be your lash extensions worst enemy. That’s because they normally contain minerals which break down the adhesive and cause premature shedding. Liquid liner is a better option.
Avoid oils as they tend to break down the adhesive and your lashes will end up falling off sooner than expected. When removing make-up, make sure to use an oil-free make up remover. We’ve formulated our own lash shampoo, pick up yours in salon or online
6. Brush Daily
Roll down, tease up. Keep your lashes neat and tangle-free by brushing through them regularly. But don’t go overboard, once in the morning and once before should be more than enough. You’ll be your lash techs BFF!
7. Sleep Mask
Wear an eye mask at night to protect your lashes against friction whilst you sleep. We’ve got 100% silk versions available online, check them out
8. Strip Lashes
Whatever you do, do not wear strip lashes over your lash extensions. Strip adhesive is gummy in texture and will melt into your lashes faster than you think. It’s a nightmare to get off and will probably cost you half of your infill appointment time so it’s best to avoid.
9. Swimming, Sauna & Steam
Your lashes are waterproof but they are delicate. If you do go for a dip, goggles are a good idea. Steam and sauna sessions are lovely but don’t stay too long as the combination of heat and moisture will result in a loss of lashes.
Our eyelash extensions are semi-permanent. However, to ensure they last up to 2 months you must ensure you schedule regular maintenance to keep them in tip-top shape. Don’t leave it too long between appointments; three weeks apart should be the maximum.
