So, you’ve got brand new eyelash extensions? Now it’s time to learn how to keep them looking perfect for as long as possible! After all, you don’t want to have them fall out too quickly, wasting the time and money that you spent having them applied – and you definitely don’t want to worry about them falling off unevenly, leaving you with lush lashes on one eye and naturals on the other, right? Here are a few tip to keep your lashes lush:
Don’t rub your eyes
This is one has got to be the toughest tip of them all, since people often rub their eyes without thinking about it. However, doing so can break the bond between your natural lashes and your extensions, causing them to fall out prematurely.
Don’t use makeup and other face products that aren’t oil free
The oils in makeup, moisturizers, cleansers and other products can interfere with your eyelash extensions, severing the bond that keeps them attached to your natural lashes. If your regular moisturizer contains oil, and you just cannot live without it, we understand. Just make sure that it doesn’t get anywhere near your fabulous new eyelashes!

Comb your eyelashes
If you don’t already have one, get yourself an eyelash comb and make sure to comb through your lashes twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. This keeps them looking nice and neat, and prevents them from getting tangled up. But remember! Comb gently. You don’t want to comb your eyelash extensions right off!
Don’t use waterproof mascara
Or, any waterproof makeup at all, for that matter! The scrubbing required to remove stubborn waterproof make-up will damage your new eyelashes, not to mention most water-proof makeup isn’t waterproof. In fact, you may need no mascara at all once your extensions are on, make sure your eyeliner, primer, or eye shadows aren’t waterproof.
And, our most important tip!
Don’t forget – in order to maintain the most fabulous lashes possible, you’ll need to get your extensions filled on a regular basis. Ask your Lash Up stylist when you’ll need to have yours filled and be sure to book regular appointments with our online form or by calling 587-524-8772
