Eyelash Extension Aftercare Tips

Eyelash Extension Aftercare Tips

Your eyelash extensions are an investment of time and money, so eyelash extension aftercare is vital to extending wear and keeping lashes looking fabulous.


Maintenance begins right after you get your extensions and requires a few basic do's and don'ts. While taking care of eyelash extensions may seem overwhelming, it's easy once you have a routine down.


 Why Taking Care of Your Eyelash Extensions is Important?

There are a few reasons to take care of your extensions. First, proper care extends length of wear, so lashes don't fall out, and you don't have to get them replaced as often, which saves you money. Taking care of them also keeps them clean, decreasing the chance of eye infections and other issues caused by buildup. Finally, proper care keeps them looking their absolute best.


Eyelash Extension Aftercare Instructions 



 ● Leave your lashes alone during the first 24-48 hours. Your lash technician will advise you not to get the extensions wet for 24-48 hours after application. This will allow the adhesive to set fully.

● Cleanse daily. Once you’ve allowed the adhesive to set, you can begin cleansing your eyelash extensions every day. This is required to prevent buildup around the lash line and infection. To cleanse your lashes adequately, follow these steps:

 1. Brush them with a soft-bristled brush like the 2-in-1 duo brush to remove dirt, debris, and micro-tangles.

2. Apply a quality eyelash extension cleanser to the lash line.

3. Rinse gently with water without rubbing and apply a lash sealant to restore the strength of your extension bond.


● Brush your eyelash extensions every morning. Use a soft-bristled spoolie or special eyelash extension brush like the one in our eyelash extension aftercare kit.


● Pay close attention to makeup and skin care. Remove oil-based skin products from your routine to prevent damaging your extensions, as these will break down the adhesive. You'll also want to avoid rubbing your eyes unnecessarily, which can damage extensions. And you don't need to use mascaras - even ones claiming to be extension-safe. Avoid waterproof eye makeup, as this requires harsh rubbing of the eye area to remove.


● Schedule regular refills and full replacements as advised by your lash technician.




 ● Sleep on your belly or your side. This crushes and abrades the extensions, potentially causing fall-out.

● Rub your eyes unnecessarily for any reason.

● Expect your lashes to last for months. Extensions are temporary, and some fall-out is normal and natural.

● Use eyelash curlers. Like sleeping on your belly or side, these may damage your extensions.

● Skip fill-up or maintenance appointments.

 Eyelash care doesn't have to be hard! Be consistent and follow these essential eyelash extension aftercare tips for the lushest lashes every day.
