They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.
Yes! Try your best to arrive without any eye makeup. This will minimise the cleanup time and allow more time for applying the extensions.
We do not recommend putting mascara on your extensions, especially waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Also only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Some common culprits of lashes not lasting:
Please keep in mind it is completely normal and healthy to lose around 3 lashes per day whether you have extensions or not.
Most individual lash extensions will last 6 to 8 weeks, though we recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Other factors such as exposure to steam, humidity or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. Touch-ups can take anywhere from 45 - 60 minutes, depending on how long you wait between appointments. During your touch-up appointment, we will remove make-up residue, remove grown-out extensions, prime your lashes and apply extensions to new lash growth.
