How long do they last?

By fully and completely following the proper after-care instructions that we will provide you upon getting your lashes done your lashes can last up to two to four weeks. Following up two to three weeks after your procedure with a 60 minute (one hour) or 90 minute (1 1/2 hour) touch up will help extend the life of your extensions. Along with proper care, touch ups are necessary to replenish fallen lashes and maintain the look you desire. You do however have your natural growth cycle to take into consideration. Sometimes you might feel you can wait longer for a touch up and sometimes you might notice more shed so you might come in a littler sooner. It is entirely up to you.

Will extensions pull out my own eyelashes?

If properly placed on your natural lashes (one extension for each one of your natural lashes) one at a time, they should not. If the proper amount of weight and length is put on your lashes you should not have any damage from the extensions as well. Also, Your natural lashes grow and shed on a cycle, just like the hair on your head. Your natural lashes are constantly in a growth cycle. It is natural to shed lashes on a daily basis. When a natural lash falls out a new one grows and quickly replaces it. At times you might see an extension attached to a natural lash that has fallen out. This doesn't mean that the extension caused it to fall out. It's just the normal cycle of your natural lashes shedding

Can I wear normal face make-up with my lash extensions?

Yes! You can always use your eyeshadows, eyeliners and any of your normal daily face products. You just won't have to spend the time you normally would with curling your lashes and/or applying mascara. No more smearing, poking yourself in the eye, or clumping. They will look beautiful 24/7!

Are there any products I should avoid while wearing lash extensions?

Yes! Your Extensionist will advise you to stay away from the following products only because they may reduce the longevity of your extensions forcing you to come back sooner for a touch up or re-application. These products may also cause your extensions to come off sooner as well. You will want to avoid the following:

  • Oily make-up removers
  • Oily moisturizers
  • Eye creams
  • Oily cleansers
  • Oily lotions
  • oily SPFs
  • Oily hair products

Oils will break down the bonding of the extension and cause your extensions to fall off sooner. Always check the ingredients of your facial products if you are not sure. To get the most out of your extensions you should only use oil free products.
