Lash extensions are one of the most low maintenance forms of "being high maintenance."
Honestly. You don't even really have to do much and they look awesome! People get lash extensions for several reasons, most often to wake up ready. I know no pretty lady who wouldn't love more sleep and an easier morning routine. But there are a few tricks to keeping your lashes prettier for longer, and they're quite easy to incorporate into your lash care.
Don't pick your lashes. (Seriously, we can tell if you do.)
This includes tugging, pinching, picking, rolling, smooshing, rubbing, and anything else you can think of that involves you touching your lashes with your fingers or hands. Doing any of these things can damage your natural lash, causing them to break, or fall out prematurely, or the extensions to lose their bond or curl. Please, for the sake of your pretty lashes, don't pick!
Wash and brush your lashes.
Your eyelashes protect your eyes from dirt, sweat, oil, and all kinds of gross stuff. Gently comb a lash shampoo through your lashes with a clean spoolie brush to avoid makeup and grime buildup, lash loss, and infection. Many ladies think that if you just leave them alone, they'll last longer. Not so! Clean lashes last longer! Brushing your lashes daily (or say, when you'd like to pick but know you shouldn't) will also help your extensions stay healthy and beautiful. Keep a clean spoolie brush in your car, purse, and even your desk at work.
Don't wear mascara!
Mascara is IMPOSSIBLE to clean off extensions. Built up mascara attracts more dirt, sweat, oil, and gross stuff. Maintain regular fill appointments to keep your lashes looking amazing and ditch mascara for good.
See? Its not so hard. Do these three things and you'll keep your lashes looking beautiful and your lash artist super pleased. If you know someone who doesn't take care of their extensions, just send them this link!
