Are You Unwittingly Shortening the Life of Your Lash Extensions?

Have you ever left your lash appointment feeling fabulous, only to find your extensions not living up to their expected longevity? You might be surprised to learn that the secret culprit could be something as simple as your mascara choice.

At Winks Eyelash Boutique, we’re on a mission to ensure your lash extensions are nothing short of perfect. That’s why we’re sharing an insider tip that could revolutionize your lash experience: Bid farewell to waterproof mascara before your lash appointments. Here’s why this small change can have a massive impact on your lash game.

Why Waterproof Mascara and Lash Extensions Don't Mix

Waterproof mascara, while a savior on tear-filled movie nights and unpredictable weather days, is a notorious challenge in the world of lash extensions.  Often containng various waxes, silicones, and oils that give them their long-lasting, water-resistant properties, these ingredients help the makeup to repel water and stay put for extended periods, even through sweat, tears, or rain. Its durable formula is designed to withstand almost anything, which means it also puts up a strong fight against removal. This not only eats into the precious time we have to apply your extensions but can also affect the application itself.

A Glimpse into the Issues:

  • Time-Consuming Removal: Our lash artists spend extra time removing stubborn mascara residues, reducing the time available for applying your beautiful extensions.
  • Weakening the Bond: Any residue can interfere with the adhesive, leading to a weaker bond and shorter lifespan for your extensions.

Maximize Your Lash Potential: Clean Lashes for the Win

For the most stunning and lasting lash extension results, coming in with clean, mascara-free lashes is key. Here’s how to prepare:

    • Night and Morning Ritual: On the evening prior to your lash extension appointment, utilize an oil-based remover to thoroughly cleanse away waterproof mascara and impurities. This ensures deep cleaning while preserving your natural lashes. Come morning, switch to an oil-free makeup remover to eliminate any overnight residue, ensuring your lashes are pristine and perfectly prepped for the extension adhesive. This dual-step approach guarantees the best foundation for beautiful, long-lasting lash extensions.
