Eyelash Extension FAQ’s

Can my eyelash extensions be removed?

Your eyelash extensions are semi-permanent which means that they can be removed. The removal process takes no more than 30 minutes and is complimentary if the set was applied by me.

Can I wear mascara and or makeup?

Using Mascara on your extensions is not recommended (yes even the “extension safe” kind.) The look and ease of lash extensions are designed so that you don’t need to use mascara at all. Most mascaras contain ingredients that will damage and dissolve the bonding agent on your extensions and hence shortening your extensions longevity. Mascara is also extremely difficult to fully clean off of your extensions and can cause them to clump together.

Eyeliner, foundation, eyeshadows, etc will not harm your extensions, just make sure to thoroughly cleanse the eye makeup off for hygienic purposes. Also, try to avoid oil-based products around the eyelash area.

How long does it take to apply eyelash extensions?

Depending on the amount of eyelash extensions being applied it can take anywhere from 1 hour to 2 1/2 hours.

Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes??

Properly applied eyelash extensions do not cause damage to your natural lashes.

Can I swim with eyelash extensions?

Yes, you can. Just make sure to wait two days after the application before you dive in, and avoid rubbing your eyes. Goggles are recommended if you are a regular swimmer.

How soon before an event should I get eyelash extensions?

I recommend booking an appointment 2 to 3 days before your special occasion. This ensures accurate curing time for the bonding agent (which can take up to 48 hours) and the freshest possible look for the lashes.

How long with my lashes last?

Because the extensions are applied to your own lashes, extensions fall out over a period of time as your natural lashes shed. Since the extensions are attached to lashes that are in the middle of their lifecycle, they tend to shed after 5-6 weeks of wear. To maintain a consistently full look, touch-ups are recommended every 2-3 weeks.
