Hey guys! Today I’m making a quick post on something I get asked a lot about; my eye lashes. The first time I got eye lash extensions was in December, and I haven’t gone back since! I truly would feel naked without them at this point. They’re amazing, and make mornings much quicker and easier. There’s so many rumours and horror stories surrounding eye lash extensions that keep people from getting them. I’m here to educate you, and tell you whats the truth and what is not 🙂
Will my natural lashes become damaged?
No no no! This is the biggest myth I’ve EVER heard. Your natural eye lashes will not be damaged by the extensions at all. Anyone who has said that either did not take care of them, went to a horrible lash technician, or simply pulled out their extensions themselves.
How do I find a good technician?
Do your research! Before getting these extensions, seek information. Ask for photos of their work, and ask too see what products they use; lash glue, lashes ect. The best way to find a lash technician is word of mouth. Always ask around from people you know personally, opposed to finding one online 🙂
Can I get them wet?
Yes, but not for the first 24 hours. Even after the given time period, I try to never get my extensions wet ever. You never know what kind of bacteria water can attract, and avoiding water contact will pro long the life of your extensions a little more as well 🙂 Now you might think your lashes will get gross by not getting them wet. That’s not true! By becoming religious with your lash brushing, you will be fine.
How long with my lashes last?
The lash extension itself is attached to your natural lashes. That being said, they will fall out with the natural growth of each lash cycle. The recommended touch up time line is every 3-4 weeks.
Can I wear mascara with my extensions?
Wearing mascara on top of extensions is not recommended. Some people still do though. This will result in the need of a more frequent touch up period, as well as having to get them wet, or even expose them to bacterial infections.
Thanks for reading. If you have lash extensions, let me know what you think of them! If you have any questions I didn’t answer, feel free to ask 🙂 xx
