With Fall Events & Holiday Parties just around the corner, most of us have had Lash Extensions… perhaps we have detoxed from them…but All of us are thinking about them this season.
We are basically addicts!
The process can be tedious (appointments last sometimes over two hours), but the end result is worth the commitment!
Longer fuller lashes and a makeup routine is cut in half…no curling lashes or even in applying mascara on them. Because they’re so dramatic, the need to wear any other eye makeup is usually unnecessary!
Below are five tips that help me keep extensions remain intact and look great longer…we’re talking two to three months!
1. Sleep on your back.
It’s so important directly following your application, as the glue takes a while to fully dry. After a night or two, it’s fine to resume your normal sleeping position
2. Give your lashes a little of TLC…likely a lot of TLC…
Removing eye makeup, go over the area gently. Use a cleansing wipe so you don’t weaken the extensions and disturb them. Aveda Esthetician and Lash Specialist, Nicole Nuyannes recommends Aveda Pure Comfort™ Eye Makeup Remover.
Lashes actually look beautiful, longer, when they’re oiled up so they remain flexible. Just rub a drop of essential oil on them with your fingers. Aveda Beautifying Composition Oil does this well.
4. Comb them out.
To avoid crisscrossing or misangled lashes, use a spoolie wand. Close your eye, place a spoolie on top of your lashes, then roll the brush over your lashes to keep them defined.
5. Resist playing with them.
“Your eyelashes swill shed naturally and when you have extensions, this will naturally push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off”, suggests Nicole. You may risk losing your natural lashes and consequently, your beautiful lash extensions. Allow lashes to come out on naturally. Use a spoolie to brush them back into place in the meantime.
