Mistake #1: Not Removing Makeup Before Your Appointment

Before your lash extension appointment, it’s vital that you take the time to remove all of your makeup before arriving at the lash studio. You want to walk into your appointment with a completely clean face that is free of makeup. The reason you’re required to take off your makeup is because in order to apply the lash extensions, the extensions need to adhere to your natural lashes. If you’re wearing mascara, the glue won’t adhere as well. Not only that, but showing up with a full face of makeup will also require your lash artist to take time away from your appointment to take it all off, meaning that you may have to pay more for your time or you won’t get quality that you desired.

Mistake #2: Exposing Your Lashes to Water

Once you receive your lash extensions, the glue used to attach the extensions will need time to dry. Lash artists typically recommend that you give the adhesive 24 to 48 hours to dry completely, and in that time, you will have certain restrictions of what you can and can’t do. The last thing that you want is to spend two hours or more having your lash extension attached only to have them fall off. With that in mind, it’s important that you avoid water within the 24- to 48-hour period. Water will ruin the glue attaching the extensions to your natural lashes, making them fall off. For this reason, it’s best to avoid swimming, showering, going to the gym, or even steam.

Mistake #3: Failing to Maintain Your Lash Extensions

Many believe that once you’ve received your lash extensions that you don’t have to do anymore work until your fill-in appointment, however, that is not the case. Although lash extensions make your morning routine a lot faster, there is still a small amount of work that you need to put in to ensure that your lashes last a long time and look their best. You will need to use a lash comb to untangle your lashes each morning, as they will occasionally become tangled during the night. Part of maintaining your lashes also includes going in for regular filler appointments. Your extensions will fall out as your natural lashes go through their growth cycle, so if you want to have continuously fabulous lashes, you will need to have them filled in every three to four weeks.

These are just a few mistakes that you should avoid when you receive eyelash extensions. Luckily, if you decide to get lash extensions from the experts at Cherry Lash in Las Vegas or Henderson, you can rest assured that you are not making a mistake and that you are getting lashes from some of the best in the industry.
