MASCARA AFTER LASH LIFT AND EXTENSIONS

If you have invested time (and money!) in getting eyelash extensions, you will know that caring for them correctly is critical to ensuring they last as long as possible. What you may not know is that using the wrong kind of mascara can damage them and shorten their ability to last.

CAN YOU WEAR MASCARA AFTER A LASH LIFT OR EXTENSIONS?

The good news is, you can — so long as you choose the right one. If you plan to wear mascara with your lash lift or extensions, it is important to first confirm this with your lash technician, as some volume lashes can look clumpy when mascara is applied.

However, if you are rocking a classic lash lift, tint or extension, then you’re good to go! Our key recommendation would be sticking to water-based mascaras or those specifically designed for use on extensions. This is because oil-based or waterproof mascara can be known to damage the adhesive bonds in your extensions, negatively impacting their life span.

HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH MASCARA TO APPLY

The question of which mascara to use following a lash lift or extensions, comes down to the look you are hoping to achieve. 

If it is additional length or volume that you’re after, look no further than Lash Sensational Sky High. Delivering max volume and limitless length, Sky High’s flexible brush bends to help volumise and further extend every lash from root to tip, without weighing you down.

Alternatively, if it is staying power that you need, Colossal 36H offers a hardwearing and long-lasting wow-factor. Smudge and flake resistant, 36H mascara offers non-stop action helping your lashes look thicker and more voluminous.

Still not sure? Take the quiz to find which mascara is right for you.

MASCARA APPLICATION TIPS FOLLOWING A LASH LIFT OR EXTENSIONS

With your chosen mascara in hand, it is time to apply. Much like foundation, your eyelashes can always benefit from a primer. Not only does primer help hold mascara in place, it also elongates your lashes even further. Set your lashes for success by starting with Lash Sensational Serum.

Now, for the mascara, always apply from root to tip, beginning at the root of your upper lashes and wiggling the wand back and forth to capture each individual lash.
