Top 10 questions regarding individual eyelash extensions

Why are the lashes falling off?

This is probably because you are not putting enough glue on. Make sure you don’t overdo it either. You have to wait until the glue gets tacky and this will be the right medium to apply it on top.

Can I wear mascara on top of the lashes?

There is no need because it has that look already. If you apply extra you will damage the lash.

How do I clean my lashes?

Stay away from any oil-based substances because you will watch your lashes fall off. Turn to water because this is going to do the trick.

What about wearing other eye makeup?

It is not a problem wearing other makeup like eye shadow and eye liner. This is encouraged, but you won’t need the mascara. When it comes to removing your makeup make sure that you don’t have anything that is oil-based which will come into contact with your lashes. Use a sideways motion rather than a downward action which will destroy your lashes quickly.

How long will they last?

Everyone will tell you something different. If you are having semi-permanent lashes put in then they can last up to a month. Don’t let anyone tell you they are going to last longer. It also depends on the environment you are in. If you are a lady of leisure and you spend your days around the pool then you will find that they will stay in longer, but if you are exposed to steam because of your work situation then you have to expect a couple more trips to the salon.

What about in-fills?

You may find that a lash has fallen out and this is because of how your natural lash grows so you have to have in-fills every 2-4 weeks if you have had this done by a professional. If you find yourself  a good salon, which is important, then they will take out the lashes that have grown to long and will replace them.
