Eyelash extensions can make such a difference to the way you look. It opens up your eyes making them look bigger, and having thicker fluttery lashes adds texture and youthfulness to any face. Having extensions also means the daily mascara application is not required and you can choose different lengths of lash extension which makes them perfectly acceptable for a daytime look. So, it is no wonder that clients who have eyelash extensions want them to be at their best for as long as possible.
Keep Eyelash Extensions Looking Great
Unfortunately, eyelash extensions will fall out eventually as they are attached to your natural lashes so they will need to be refilled. The Cecily Day Spa in Berkhamsted offers a full range of both lash and brow treatments to keep your eyes and brows looking tidy, groomed and amazing.
Here are some of our practical tips for keeping those lashes, luscious for longer:
Choose lighter individual lashed over thicker eyelash extensions. Thicker eyelash extensions are heavier and are therefore more likely to peel off. Lighter individual lashes may not create as dramatic an effect on your eyes, but they will stay on longer than thicker lashes, providing more benefits in that way.
Keep thick creams away from your eyes. Thick creams may work wonders for your complexion, especially during dry winter months, but they also dramatically reduce the life of your eyelash extensions. These creams can break up the glue that holds eyelash extensions in place.
Apply eyelash sealer. Eyelash sealers, when applied every morning, can help to extend the life of your eyelash extensions. Look for sealers that contain both acrylic and hyaluronic serum, as this will both help your extensions adhere better and also condition your natural eyelashes.
Keep your face off your pillow at night. It’s not hard to understand why sleeping with your face on your pillow can pull your eyelash extensions out–especially if you ever move your face around while you are sleeping. Instead, try to sleep on your back so that your eyelash extensions aren’t touched throughout the night.
Match to your natural eyelash shape. This may also seem counter-intuitive, especially since you may want curly lashes if your own are super-straight but matching your eyelash extensions to the shape of your natural eyelashes can help to ensure that they last longer. You can always use a heated eyelash curler to liven up straight extensions, but this way they won’t fall out prematurely.
Don’t use waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascara is made to be somewhat indestructible, which can make them very difficult to remove. The effort you expend to try and clean waterproof mascara off your eyelash extensions may very well pull them right off, or at least weaken them considerably.
