- Don't rub, pick, or pull your lashes. This is kind of obvious but some people can't help touching their lashes and this will inevitably cause your lashes to fall out faster.
- Keep oils away from your lashes. Anything that contains oil will break down the adhesive that binds the extensions to your natural lashes. Check your face products (i.e. cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream) for oils.
- Don't use waterproof eye makeup. Waterproof makeup requires stronger, oil-based makeup removers to come off, which break down the glue. You also need to do more rubbing to remove waterproof makeup, which is a no-no.
- Don't use cotton swabs or wipes anywhere near your lashes. Many women use Q-tips, cotton balls, or makeup removing wipes to help get rid of eye makeup. All of these have tiny fibers that get stuck in your lashes and cause friction that will pull on the extensions. Avoid these by using a liquid makeup remover that dissolves makeup, like Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing Makeup Remover.
- Sleep on a satin pillowcase. Satin causes less friction than traditional pillowcase fabrics, which causes less damage to your lashes. A satin pillowcase also causes less hair breakage and wrinkles.
- Avoid using thick, waxy mascaras. Most people don't use mascara when they have eyelash extensions. However, if you do like to use a little of mascara to keep your lashes in place or to add extra drama for an event, use a cheap watery or clear mascara. Expensive, thick mascaras usually contain more waxes and oils, which will break down the glue.
Liquifan Lashes require much less maintenance than other eyelash extensions. The patented sealant makes the glue bond stronger and makes the adhesive more resistant to water and friction. Liquifan glue doesn't require any drying time either, so you don't have to worry about getting your lashes wet in the first few days.
