Immediately after the appointment:
- Do not wet them for 8 hours after your application
- No saunas or steam rooms (basically any excessive heat/moisture could shorten the lifespan of your lashes)
- No pulling, tugging, playing with your lashes. Leave them alone ladies! Other than combing them morning and evening (disposable mascara brush will be provided), try to not fiddle with them. This could compromise your natural lashes if they pull out prematurely and the oil on fingers breaks down the adhesive bonds
• Avoid all waterproof eye-make up products. These are too difficult to get off and you will end up rubbing your lashes too much.
• If you do feel the need to apply mascara, apply to the tips only and use a water-based (NOT oil-based) mascara.
• Use an oil-free make-up remover and a lint-free cloth to remove make-up
• Do not use an eyelash curler
- Avoid prolonged exposure to tears and salt water, which will degrade the adhesive bond.
- Avoid products with oil – e.g. a rich eye cream and milky/creamy cleansers. Use an oil free foaming face cleanser DAILY on a wet face in the shower and wash the lashes with both ring fingers gently massaging the lash line in a downwards motion to remove makeup then use the oil free makeup remover and lint-free cloth (stocked by us). It is a myth that they should not be wet; failure to wash them with a product daily could attract eyelash mites and infections. Remember though to NOT wet them after a fill, wait 8 hours
- Do not use cotton wipes, pads, towels or anything containing lint/fluff on the lashes –as they will hook. Speak to me about a lint-free cloth or refer to the Products page
- When drying your face do not rub instead blot your face and apply a gently pressure to your closed eyes then allow the extensions to dry naturally. Don’t try to dry them with the towel or hair dryer
- Everyone loses an average of 4 lashes per eye, per day. Often you could experience a fallout phase and you can expect more. Remember, the following factors affect lash retention: oily skin type, heavy use of makeup (removal process pops lashes off) residue left on lashes on your fill day (glue cant adhere, wash off all mascara properly till the yellow cloth shows no more black) picking, rough sleeping, allergies (eye rubbing in your sleep)
