Even though it’s tempting to make your lashes look even fuller, it’s not worth making your lashes clump together and weakening the lash glue — especially when you already look like you’re wearing mascara anyway. Instead, apply mascara only on your lower lashes. If you’re determined to wear mascara despite the warnings, search for one that is oil-free, like the Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara
Don’t Wear Waterproof Makeup
Waterproof makeup requires extra effort to remove it from your eyes at the end of the day. The key to preserving lash extensions is to wear makeup that can be gently removed, which excludes the waterproof products in your makeup arsenal.
Comb Through Your Lashes With a Spoolie Daily
This should be done every morning because lash extensions have the tendency to criss-cross and get tangled. Very gently comb the lashes with a spoolie to straighten them out, but be careful not to tug. Another way to care for your lashes every day is to use an eyelash extension conditioner. “It will keep those lashes looking flawless in between fill-ins,” Monaco explains.
Watch What Type of Eyeshadow You Use
“Eyeshadows with a sparkle base can cause irritation to the eyelid margin,” Monaco explains. Make sure powder and glitter don’t get trapped in your extensions by using a tight-bristled eyeshadow brush and removing excess powder from your brush before application.
Use a Powder Liner
You’re already aware that your liner needs to be oil-free, but what else should you look for in a product? Liquid and cream liners can build up on your lashes and tug at your eye during application, so a better option is a powder eyeliner like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner
