1. Keep Your Lashes Separate
The last thing you want after forking our for fake lashes is for them to look clumpy or to turn into spider-lashes! So, using a spoolie (lash brush) gently roll and wiggle through your lashes to separate them. Use a very gentle motion though as you do not want to pull any of the lashes off.
2. Sleep On Your Back
If you sleep on your side or on your front at night, you're going to flatten your eyelashes very quickly! Do your very best to sleep on your back while catching some Zzz's to avoid ruining your extensions.
3. Avoid Oil-Based Products
As wonderful as oil-based products are at removing stubborn eye makeup, they're also very good at wiping away your expensive lashes! The oil can degrade the glue which is used to attach the lashes - so avoid, avoid, avoid and opt for oil-free products instead such as micellar water.
4. Put Down the Mascara
Some of you may want to make your lashes even more fluttery with a coat of mascara. This is absolutely fine as long as you stick to a few rules. 1) Use a water based or oil-free mascara, 2) apply only one coat and 3) be so very gentle when you remove it!
5. Maintain Regular Eyelash Infills
As much as you can care for your lashes at home, you still need to keep up with infills every 2-3 weeks. The longer you leave it, the harder it will be for your stylist to keep your lashes looking full and fabulous!
