4 Myths about Eyelash Extensions Debunked by Experts

16 Jul 2018

With the power to give you plump, luscious lashes, eyelash extensions are gaining in popularity. The beauticians who apply lash extensions at Elegant Eyebrows in Chevron Renaissance have seen this popularity firsthand. They’ve also heard a lot of eyelash extension myths, which experts have cleared up below.

Can you wear eye makeup and mascara with lash extensions?

Yes, you can wear eye makeup and mascara with lash extensions, although going light and choosing oil-free makeup and oil-free makeup remover is the ideal option. Certain mascaras are designed to be used with eyelash extensions, and they can be applied to the tips of the lashes. Make sure you remove all mascara and eye makeup daily for best results.

Can you go blind from eyelash extensions?

No. Although glue that gets into the eye can cause irritation, that’s not likely because your eyes are closed during the application process. Expert beauticians, like those at Elegant Eyebrows, are trained to perform the procedure safely and correctly.

Can you cry with eyelash extensions or get lash extensions wet?

While you want to stay away from tears and other moisture during the glue curing period for the first 12 to 24 hours, you can cry freely after that. You can even go swimming or head out in the rain after the glue-curing period, as lash extensions are water-resistant.

Will eyelash extensions ruin my natural lashes?

Eyelash extensions applied by properly by a professional are not going to ruin your natural eyelashes. Natural eyelashes have been affected, however, when people pull on their eyelash extensions or vigorously rub their eyes. This can lead to eyelash loss or damage.As with all hair on your body, your eyelashes go through a growth cycle that occurs every six to eight weeks. Your eyelashes fall out naturally on their own, although you may not notice unless you have extensions attached.Ready to move forward with your own set of luscious lash extensions?
