One of the biggest benefits of eyelash extensions is no longer needing to spend time putting on mascara. Still, one of the most common questions we hear is, “Can I wear mascara with my eyelash extensions?” Short answer is yes, but you don’t need it.
So what if I still want to use mascara?
If you still want to wear mascara, then lets cover the do’s and dont list. First, you should only be using a water-based mascara, NOT an oil-based or waterproof mascara. The oil-based and waterproof mascara will dissolve the bonding agent of the eyelash extension. As a result, the extensions will have a shortened life and fallout prematurely.
What step should I follow when applying mascara to eyelash extensions?
- You need to wait for 48 hours, after any eyelash extensions procedure before applying.
- Start in the middle of the lash and gently brush mascara up to the tips.
- Avoid the area where the extension is attached and use your mascara sparingly.
