Preparing for your Eyelash Extension Application appointment

lashes prep

Though your eyelash extension application is a relaxing experience, there are a few important steps you can take prior to your appointment.

  • Be very careful of applying moisturiser, serums, sunblock or any oil based products in the 48 hours leading up to your appointment
  • Avoid wearing mascara on the day of your appointment
  • In terms of cleaning your lashes prior to your appointment, use your regular cleansing methods BUT do clean the lashes again with bar soap and water – this is very important to ensure that the lashes are squeaky clean! NB. Please do not simply wipe your lashes with makeup remover wipes – these wipes have a cleanser residue which makes it almost impossible for the lashes to bond and significantly reduce the life f your extensions!
  • Please advise our Technicians if you are pregnant or have any sensitivities
  • Ensure that you leave up to an hour and fifteen minutes
  • Your technician will need a space with ample light and where you will not be disturbed
  • Our busy mums may have kids at home, but please refrain from letting your littlies jump on you or around you or the technician during the application – sometimes they get excited and the application is a very delicate procedure.

Eye Lash Extension After Care

After Care

Here are a few tips to ensure your lovely new eyelash extensions go the distance!

  • Following your application, be careful to keep your lashes very dry for 3 hours and relatively dry for 24 hours
  • Avoid hot steamy showers where possibly (the steam can lift the glue adhesive)
  • Be careful not to rub your eyes, and if using a towel or towelette to dry for face dab gently (the fibres may pull at the lash extension).
  • Be careful to avoid putting moisturiser, sun block, fake tan, serums and sunblock directly onto the lashes
  • Avoid oily products near the lashes – i.e. Vitamin E Oil and Bio-Oil for example, and other oil based products
  • Do¬† not use eyelash curlers while you still have eyelash extensions on
  • Avoid rubbing, touching and pulling at your lashes
  • If you wish to use mascara (many don’t with their new eyelash extensions) choose one that is not waterproof – or water soluble
  • Avoid any laser treatments around the eyes whilst you are wearing extensions.
