Do eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?

When eyelash extensions are applied properly by a professional, your natural lashes do not suffer. While your natural lashes may be at risk if the extensions are too heavy for them to support, a true professional knows what extensions will work for you.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

Depending on how well you maintain them, eyelash extensions can last anywhere from three to five or six weeks. The most crucial time period is the first 24 hours after application, when the glue is still curing. It’s important not to get extensions wet with sweat, tears or water until the glue is fully set.

Can you shower with eyelash extensions?

Once the glue has completely dried, you can shower with eyelash extensions. In fact, you can also clean them with a fresh mascara wand to refresh the shape and remove any debris. Brush your eyelash extensions after your shower, when you wake up, and right before bed.
