Recommendations To Select And Care For Eyelash Extensions

Posted on

When you are considering eyelash extensions, you probably are dreaming of having long and curly eyelashes that set off the appearance of your eyes, their coloring, and improve your overall look. With some expert recommendations in mind, the following tips will help you get and keep lash extensions that look great and last as long as possible.

Choose the Right Lash Extensions

Not everyone is going to look great in the same type of eyelash extensions, so you should make sure to select the ones that will look the best on you and that are of good quality. Consult with your lash extension specialist to choose a lash that is going to be long enough but still looks natural. The lash extensions should blend in with your own lashes but extend out further to give your lashes a longer length.

You should then consider the weight of the lashes they apply, as you want them to match your existing lash thickness to supplement your existing lashes with a realistic-looking but beautiful improvement. Don't think that the thicker the lash extensions, the better they will be. Thinner lashes can last longer because they are not as heavy and won't peel off from the adhesive that keeps them in place. 

Provide Good Lash Care

Once you have the perfect set of thick and fluffy lashes, you want to make sure you take care of them so they don't fall out quickly or become damaged and look thin. As a good rule of thumb, don't get your eyes wet for at least a day after you get them applied, which provides time for the adhesive to dry properly. Ask your lash specialist what time frame is recommended for keeping them dry. You will also need to get into the habit of not rubbing your eyes or pulling at your lashes, even if you think you have something in them. Instead, carefully check them in the mirror to remove any lint or dirt with a toothbrush or lash brush. 

Don't use any waterproof makeup or mascara on your lashes because you should only use oil-free makeup remover to take off your makeup and using anything else will remove the lash adhesive as well. Make sure you also avoid your eyes if you apply a night cream to your face, as it contains oils and can cause the same problem. Add an eyelash sealer to your makeup bag and apply it every morning to help the lashes remain in place and attached.
