​Eyelash Extensions: What you should know


Ever wanted the full, luscious eyelashes you see in magazines and commercials, only to be disappointed by all of the promises made by whatever mascara is the new “it” thing?

You aren’t alone, and there is still hope.

The perfect lashes in advertisements are almost never the model’s real lashes. They are eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions come in different varieties, most often either individual lashes and flare lashes. Individual eyelashes attach a single extension to a single lash creating length, and flare lashes create length and fullness. Below are some do’s and don’ts of eyelash extensions.

Don't: Use an oil-based makeup remover. (The oil will break down and dissolve the adhesive causing the lashes to fall off.)

Do: Use oil-free makeup removing wipes to remove eye makeup, avoid the lashes.

Don't: Pull out an outgrown lash! Trying to pull the extension off can cause your natural lash to come out resulting gaps or spaces.

Do: Use a clean mascara wand to brush your lashes upward, and let the natural lash cycle shed, as it normally would every four to six weeks.

Don't: Get them wet or go into a steamy room for the first 48 hours to allow the adhesive to fully bond.

Do: Use a blow dryer on a low warm setting and blow-dry your lashes upwards if you do get them wet.

Don’t: Rub your eyes. This will decrease the life of the eyelashes and pull your natural lashes out

Do: Skip the mascara. Most eyelashes are black, so mascara isn’t really necessary
