Can you put mascara on lash extensions?

can you put mascara on lash extensions

Yes, you can put mascara on lash extensions, but there are some caveats and considerations:

  • Type of Mascara: If you choose to wear mascara with your lash extensions, it's crucial to use a water-based mascara. Oil-based or waterproof mascaras can weaken the bond of the eyelash adhesive and may lead to premature shedding of the extensions.

  • Application: When applying mascara to lash extensions, be gentle. Aggressive application can pull or tug at the extensions, potentially causing them to come off or damaging your natural lashes.

  • Removal: Be gentle when removing the mascara. Use an oil-free makeup remover and avoid any rubbing or tugging.

  • Less Need for Mascara: One of the benefits of eyelash extensions is that they already give the appearance of longer, fuller lashes, reducing the need for mascara. Many people find they don't need mascara at all with extensions.

  • Extension Mascara: Some brands offer mascaras specially formulated for lash extensions. These products are designed to be gentle on the adhesive and the extensions.

  • Maintenance: Using mascara on lash extensions might mean you need to clean the extensions more often to prevent build-up and potential complications.

  • Professional Advice: Always follow the advice and recommendations of your lash technician. They can provide guidance specific to the type of extensions you have and the adhesive that was used.

In summary, while you can apply mascara to eyelash extensions, it's essential to use the right products and techniques to maintain the health and longevity of the extensions.
