Can I use eye makeup remover while I have them?

When you remove your makeup, just be extremely careful and do your best to avoid touching the lashes.

Do not use an oil-based makeup remover, as oil-based products can affect the glue negatively.

Why antibacterial eyelash extensions?

There are germs all around us that can’t be avoided even with extra care. Many people find it hard to wash their faces thoroughly while keeping their eyelash extensions. As a result, there is a risk of multiplying germs around the eye area. Keeping our eyelashes clean and protecting against eye infections are challenges that we face.

Antibacterial eyelashes are bacteria-free and will protect your eyes from the time you have them on until they fall off.

Common Questions

What are eyelash extensions?

Are lash extension for everyone? Can you have them even if your lashes are super short or really fair?

Yes, eyelash extensions are for everyone. Very fair people can have a lash tint prior to the application of extensions. Those with shorter and finer lashes can have more light weight lash extensions applied.

Do they last forever?

No. Your natural lashes fall out every 60 to 90 days, but we do not notice when they fall out quite as much because there’s already a new lash growing behind it. False lashes are often thicker and longer than your natural lashes, so when they fall out, you may wind up noticing it more. With lash extensions that are adhered to your natural lashes, they can fall out anywhere from a week to a couple months down the road. Typically, you will need to get them replaced every six to eight weeks.
