Finding the right makeup that doesn’t ruin your eyelash extensions can be hard. You always hear us say Oil Free.. No Oil Based Products…STEP AWAY FROM THE OIL.
Makeup & skincare products that contain oil can cause the bond between your eyelash extension & your natural lash to brake down. Even if you are cleansing your lashes daily there is almost always oil residue left over that stays on your lashes (oil based products need an oil based remover…. that’s a lot of oil). Over time this oil residue will continue to build up & coat your lashes creating a barrier between your natural lash & any new eyelash extension applied. It may seem like your eyelash extensions aren’t lasting as long but in reality its the oil residue from your makeup that’s effecting your lash retention.
We know & understand your love for makeup. We also don’t expect you to stop wearing makeup all together.

Even when your wearing oil-free & water based makeup its still important to cleanse your lashes daily. Pick up a bottle of lash cleanser at your next appointment.
*Please keep in mind applying & removing makeup will put wear & tear on your lashes, some products just more then others. Anyone who does not wear makeup will have longer lasting lashes then someone who wears makeup daily.
