You asked: Can I wear eye makeup with lash extensions?

Absolutely. Of course, one of the greatest benefits of eyelash extensions is eliminating the need for mascara on a daily basis. Eye shadows and eyeliners are perfectly fine to use. Oil-based products, particularly waterproof mascara, should be avoided as they may compromise the life of your extensions.

What makeup can I use with eyelash extensions?

You can, but less is best. Water-based mascara (we like the Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara) that’s specifically formulated for lash extensions can be applied to the tips of the extensions. Oil-free eye makeup remover should be used to remove any makeup, like the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water.

When can you wear eye makeup after eyelash extensions?

It is best to rest your eye area from any products and you’re definitely not supposed to get them wet around 24 hours after the extensions are attached. You are allowed to wear eye makeup after the 24-hour rest as long as it’s oil free.

How do you wash your face with eyelash extensions?

Do not rub or pull on your eyelash extensions. Keep your Eyelash Extensions dry for 4-6 hours after your appointment. You may wash your face in the sink using a washcloth, avoiding the eye area. Keep all oil based products away from the eyes and remember that everything on your face will travel to the eye area.
