Are you licensed?

This is the first question you should ask your lash artist before you get your lash extensions. Unfortunately, there are many people offering lash extensions without a license. In order to ensure you are getting top-quality eyelash extensions, you want to be sure that you are seeking extensions from a professional. Some places may give you the option to choose the skill level of your lash artist, offering a discount for the less-skilled artists. That being said, it is always important to ask if your lash artist is licensed before they start work on your lashes.

How long have you been applying lash extensions?

Not only is this questions good to know if you’re thinking about getting lash extensions, but it will also help you get to know your lash artist. As we mentioned above, there are some lash salons that give you the option to choose the skill level of your artist. While the highest skill level has most likely been doing lash extensions for longer, there is no harm in asking. The same goes for the lowest skill tier. Having a newer lash artist doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t receive quality eyelash extensions, especially if your lash artist went through rigorous training. Not to mention, new lash artists could still have a year or two of experience!

How do I make my lash extensions last as long as possible?

In previous blogs, we’ve mentioned that your natural lashes go through a growth cycle where they will naturally fall out and be replaced by new lashes. Because your eyelash extensions are attached to your existing lashes, it is completely normal that they will fall out when your natural lashes do. That being said, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your eyelash extensions before you need to come in for a filler.

High-quality lashes and adhesive – Be sure that your lash artist is using high-quality lash extensions and adhesive. Using quality materials will help your extensions securely bond with your natural lashes, avoiding any unnecessary loss of your extensions.
Use an oil-free makeup remover – If you choose to wear makeup with your eyelash extensions, make sure that it is all oil-free, as oil will counteract the adhesive and wreak havoc on your lashes. In addition to wearing oil-free makeup, it’s important that you use an oil-free makeup remover. Additionally, be sure to use a cotton swab when removing makeup near your lashes to avoid accidentally pulling any out.

How often do I need to get my lashes filled?

As we mentioned above, your lashes go through a natural growth cycle. Your eyelash extensions typically last between 30 to 60 days with proper care. Within that time, you will come back to the lash salon and have one of our lash artists apply fillers to help you maintain your gorgeous, thick eyelashes. However, the time in between appointments depends on how well you maintain your lashes after they are adhered to your natural lashes.

Why You Need to Wear the Right Makeup

Lash extensions can last up to six weeks if they are properly cared for. That being said, an important part of caring for your lash extensions is wearing the right makeup. As we mentioned above, after receiving eyelash extensions, some women don’t feel the need to wear makeup. However, there are other women who feel naked without their favorite cosmetic products.

With lash extensions, you still have the option of wearing makeup, but it’s important that you ensure you are wearing the right kind of makeup. Wearing the wrong makeup can cause your lash extensions to fall out prematurely, meaning you will have to go in sooner to get them filled. Continue reading below for a few examples of makeup to avoid.

Tubing Mascara

One of the most common myths about mascara is that you can’t wear it with your eyelash extensions. The fact of the matter is that you can wear mascara, you just have to be extra cautious about what type you apply to your lashes. You want to avoid wearing waterproof and tubing mascara. Waterproof mascara is pretty self-explanatory, but tubing mascara is a type of mascara that can easily be removed with very little pressure and will easily slip off in the water. If you must wear mascara, be sure that you look closely at the ingredients and buy a mascara that is water-based.

Pencil Eyeliner

Unfortunately, your favorite pencil eyeliner will have to go. Your long eyelash extensions may have a tendency of getting tangled, especially after a long night of tossing and turning. If that is the case, the last thing you want is to create more chaos by running an eyeliner pencil along your lash line. Not to mention, most eyeliner pencils have a sticky residue that is perfect for an all-day gorgeous look, but not so great for your eyelash extensions.

Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner could be just as detrimental to your eyelash extensions as your favorite pencil liner. When choosing makeup that is safe for your lash extensions, it’s best to avoid any cosmetic products that use the words “long-lasting” or “waterproof.” While your liquid liner may not explicitly say these words, think about how you would remove your liquid liner. If the removal process requires any sort of rubbing action, it’s best to leave that liner in your makeup bag. Any sort of repeated touching or rubbing on or near your lashes could cause them to fall out, meaning you will have to refill your gorgeous lashes sooner than anticipated.

Oil-Based Makeup Remover

Oil-based makeup remover is probably one of the biggest cosmetic products to avoid using with your eyelash extensions. As we have mentioned in previous posts, the oil in your makeup remover will loosen the adhesive in your lash extensions, making them fall out. That being said, it is important to keep your lashes clean in order to go the maximum amount of time without having to go to the lash salon for a fill. However, it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients used in any makeup remover that you use.

These are just a few of the main cosmetic products that you should avoid using with your eyelash extensions. In a later blog, we will discuss a few products that are perfectly safe for your lash extensions! In the meantime, if you want to take the plunge and get the best lashes of your life, then contact Cherry Lash and schedule an appointment at our lash salon in Las Vegas or Henderson.

Shower Before Your Appointment

In our previous blog, we discussed the importance of showing up to your appointment with a clean face and clean eyelashes. In addition to washing your face before your appointment, it’s also a good idea to take a shower before you arrive. The reason we recommend arriving freshly showered is because once you receive your eyelash extensions, you won’t be able to get them wet for the first 24 to 48 hours after application. The adhesive used to attach the extensions to your natural eyelashes needs time to completely bond with the eyelash. Water from your shower, swimming, a sauna, or even crying can cause problems with the adhesive.

Avoid Oil-Based Products

Prior to your appointment, avoid using any oil-based products, including eye creams, mascara, concealers, and any other products you frequently use around your eyes. If you notice that some of your products are oil-based, be sure that they are completely removed prior to your appointment, as oil will not allow the adhesive to bond with your lashes.

Receive Lash Tints and Facials Before Your Appointment

If you are someone who regularly tints their lashes to make them stand out, you will want to have this done approximately 24 to 48 hours before your eyelash extension appointment. The chemicals and compounds found in lash dye can cause problems with the lash adhesive, so if you want the best results, you will want to plan ahead.

The same concept goes for a facial. If you want to get a facial treatment, be sure to schedule the appointment before you get your lash extensions. As we mentioned above, any sort of water or steam will cause damage to your extensions, therefore it’s best to get any facial treatments out of the way before you receive your eyelash extensions. If you can’t schedule your facial until after your lash extension appointment, it’s best to wait at least 48 hours after the application to get a facial.

Do Your Research

Before you even book your appointment, it’s important to do your research. You want to make sure you’re getting the best results with your eyelash extensions. Research the best places to get lash extensions in your area and read reviews. If you have a friend who has recently received eyelash extensions, ask them about where they got theirs done and what they did or didn’t like about procedure.

Once you’ve settled on a location, look at what options they have for lash extensions. Many places offer packages based on what percentage of your natural lashes will receive extensions. From there, places may even offer discounted rates that vary depending on the skill level of the lash artist. It’s important to do your research ahead of time and have an idea of what you want before you book your appointment.

Arrive With a Clean Face and Clean Lashes

When you arrive for your lash extension appointment, you want your face to be as clean as possible. Your lash artist applies the eyelash extensions using an adhesive, therefore, any residual makeup on both your face and your lashes could make it difficult for the adhesive to bond properly. Unlike when you go to the nail salon, if you arrive with your eye makeup still on, your lash artist will not spend a lot of time trying to take it off, which will result in lash extensions that are less than perfection. It’s best to take the time to wash your face and ensure that all of your eye makeup is completely removed.

If you wear waterproof mascara, it’s best that you stop wearing it three days prior to your appointment. The problem with waterproof mascara is that the components will stay on your lashes even after you have removed your makeup.
