Your Ultimate Guide to Eyelash Extensions: FAQs Answered

Eyelash extensions have taken the beauty world by storm, providing a convenient way to achieve long, voluminous lashes without the need for mascara or falsies. If you're considering getting eyelash extensions, you probably have a few questions. In this comprehensive guide, we'll address some of the most frequently asked questions about eyelash extensions.

  • How long do eyelash extensions last?

One of the primary benefits of eyelash extensions is their longevity. When properly applied and cared for, eyelash extensions can last up-to 6 weeks. This means you can enjoy the stunning effects of luscious lashes for an extended period. We do recommend infills every 2 - 3 weeks to keep your lashes nice and full

  • Do eyelash extensions damage natural lashes?

When applied correctly, eyelash extensions should not damage your natural lashes. The adhesive used is specifically designed for use near the eyes and is safe for your lashes. However, correct aftercare plays an important role and it's crucial to choose a reputable and qualified professional to ensure proper application and reduce any potential risks 

  • Do i need a break from extensions?
We use the highest quality eyelash extensions, on the market. They are light in weight, soft and flexible. Your trained lash technician will attach the right length and thickness of extension on your natural lashes so they do not effect your natural lash cycle. This means you will not need a break and can continue with your infill. 
  • Can I wear mascara with eyelash extensions?

One of the main advantages of eyelash extensions is that they eliminate the need for mascara. In fact, wearing mascara with eyelash extensions is generally discouraged. Mascara can clump and damage the extensions, leading to a shorter lifespan

If you feel the need for additional volume, discuss it with your lash technician, who may recommend a different type of extension to achieve the desired effect. Or if you feel you absolutely must, we do recommend a tubular formula as this will remove easily with water and not cause damage to the extension

  • How do I care for my eyelash extensions?

Proper aftercare is crucial for maintaining the longevity and appearance of your eyelash extensions. Here are some essential tips:

  • Avoid oil-based products: Oil-based makeup removers and cleansers can weaken the adhesive bond, causing the extensions to fall out prematurely. Opt for oil-free products instead

  • Be gentle when cleansing: Use a lash-friendly cleanser and a soft brush to clean your lashes gently. Avoid rubbing or pulling on them

  • Avoid excessive moisture: While it's fine to get your extensions wet, avoid excessive exposure to water, steam, or saunas as it can weaken the adhesive

  • Resist the urge to pick or tug: Refrain from touching or pulling at your extensions, as this can damage both the extensions and your natural lashes

  •  What is the difference between a natural set and a full set?

The natural set is applied to every second lash or so, about 40-50 lashes on each eye. With the full set, the extension is applied to every single lash on the top of the eye. Usually around 80-100. As the natural set is half the amount of lashes, they will not last as long as a fullset.
