First 24 hours and after…

Iana Cornescu

Eyelash extensions require extra care, especially the first 24 hours after getting the service. During this time we can not have any water, eye makeup, heat exposure and any type of oily products on them. Because the lash extension are still adapting and the glue is still drying, exposing your lashes to any of the listed above can cause your lash extensions to fall sooner. I would highly recommend not wearing much eye makeup, it makes a huge difference to your retention. 

    Oil in general breaks the bond of the glue, so even after the 24 hour period it is very important to avoid any oil around the eyes. This goes along with the makeup remover you are using. Most makeup removers are oil based, you can still use your favorite oil base makeup remover but you will need an oil-free option for your eyes. 

    Talking about makeup, the idea that you can’t use eye make up while having lash extensions is a myth. You can keep using mascara and eye liner, but you have to make sure they are not waterproof. I would not recommend using other products just because its harder to keep track of the oil content in eyeshadows, concealers, highlighters, bases, etc. I would not recommend mascara as well but I do understand the use of mascara after 3 weeks when lashes are falling out randomly and you might have little gaps. 

   To remove the makeup you have to use oil free make remover as mentioned above. No makeup wipes, or cotton swabs, all of that is not moist enough and will just get in between the hairs and you will end up pulling on the extensions. Instead, try putting more of the remover on the cotton pad and let it sit on your eyelid for a moment so that the makeup loses up and then go ahead and wash them with some warm water and baby soap WITH YOUR FINGERS. The idea here is to be as gentle as possible. 

    Brushing your lashes every day and a few times a day sounds easy but most of my clients find it hard to get used to. Brushing them is the key to keep them in shape. My best technique when it comes to brushing is doing it while they are wet. In the morning and at night when you wash your face, pad dry your lashes and when they are still a little wet, brush them for a minute. Brush them from the top towards the outside corners of the eyes and from the bottom just tap them gently for lifting and you are set. 

    In general Eyelash extensions are supposed to ease our lives, and if we take that extra care with them they will last much longer and look good for longer as well.

 

I heard lash extensions damage your lashes...

Iana Cornescu

As an esthetician I would like to reassure you that eyelash extensions are meant to only ease a woman's life. If the application is done correctly, there should be no damage to your natural lashes. I will be honest with you though and tell you that extensions are not that good for your lashes. Lash extensions are still not natural like your own lashes and together with he glue they could make a change to your lashes if you don't take any breaks from them. 

Eyelash extensions require a lot of maintenance. Besides the idea of keeping them looking good longer, you need to keep them clean. When washing the face, not skipping the eye area is very important because eyelashes have dust and bacteria that gathers throughout the day. That refers also to making sure you remove all your makeup if you use any. I will go over the products to use in the next blog. 

The maintenance is extremely important but more so is finding the right artist and the right products. Here we have lots of choices: from synthetic lashes, to silk and mink lashes. The choice you make can be based on the look you want and the budget you have. Synthetic lashes are usually cheaper than silk and mink. The artist's job is to inform you about the choices you have for products as well as the styles. Everyone has a different eye shape as well as natural lash fullness. If your lashes are already damaged, you either need to take a break and treat them with oils and vitamins or you need to go for the more natural look. We all love volume but natural looks can do the job just as good and make a huge difference to our face. 

So long story short ladies, don't be afraid of getting lash extensions. Make your research for the right artist and the right product and then go ahead and take a 2 hour nap while your getting the service and wake up prettier that you already are. 

There's no better feeling than waking up pretty and not have to go through the whole process of getting ready.. Getting ready takes time and lashes make an effortless difference to our look.

I'll warn you : It is addicting....

Much love,

Iana
