Other important aftercare tips:
*No swimming, steam rooms or saunas for 48 hours. Use only water based makeup removers and cleansers (Oily/cream based products will shorten the life of your eyelash extensions). No waterproof mascara.
*No eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions. Avoid rubbing, touching and playing with your eyelash extensions (This can become addictive, so just don’t even go there!).
*Use a foaming cleanser on your lashes at least every other day (We’ll show you how it’s done).
*Use a tissue to blot dry lashes after washing your face. Don’t forget to pre-book your next eyelash refill at 2 – 4 week intervals in order to maintain the fullness of your eyelash extensions (We recommend 3 weeks for most clients).
*Please remove all eye makeup prior to your appointment, to ensure you receive the most out of your treatment time.
*Avoid using waterproof mascara for at least 3 days prior (that stuff can be like cement to get off).
*Did you know you loose 3-5 natural lashes per day?…7 lashes if you have fast growth.
Lash Retention Troubleshooting:
*A build up of oil/makeup effects lash retention, clean your lashes daily with an approved lash/brow cleanser, if you have oily skin cleanse morning and night. Your eyelids are the oiliest part of your body.
*Do not wear mascara whilst wearing extensions.
*Do not have caffeine or talking during your lash application…this leads to twitchy eyes which makes correct application very difficult.
*No picking or touching your lashes.
