Eyelash extensions are the ideal holiday accessory! With the holiday season fast approaching, they are the perfect means to finish any makeup appearance – taking your look to some new dramatic degree for any upcoming events or parties. But when your clients fall in love with their brand new holiday appearance, how do we choose them from being a one time customer into a lifelong enthusiast of eyelash extensions? By teaching them how to care for their extensions and get nearly all out of their investment!
Eyelash extensions may provide you all the BS and more than traditional mascara offers your clients. When you have high quality Lash Cat extensions, mascara is no longer desired. Pulling a mascara wand through the eyelashes to coat them with details, as well as rubbing against your eyelashes at the close of the day to remove your cosmetics, all interrupts the adhesive bond in-between the extension and natural eyelash. Regular use of mascara could result in your extensions falling out prematurely, so we recommend avoiding it at all costs.
Oil-Free Makeup Removers
With eyelash extensions, other cosmetics such as mascara isn’t required. If you do decide to put in a small additional BS to your eye appearance, you should only use oil-free makeup removers when cleansing at the end of the day. Removers with oil may weaken the adhesive and cause eyelashes to come off. Advising your clients to do a bit of research before buying any makeup removers to ensure they’re protected, and oil-free might help prolong the life of their extensions.
Much like how clients will need to be cautious with oily makeup removers, clients also have to be conscious of what skincare products they’re using. Oils in skin and eye lotions may be great for moisturizing the skin, but they could also break down the adhesive that holds your extensions in place. Keep skin lotions from the eye region to shield your eyelashes and help prolong their lifespan.
How To Sleep With Lashes
The manner in which you sleep may also affect the longevity of your eyelash extensions. Sleeping on your stomach or face down on your pillow may cause friction and tugging at the extensions, resulting in them eventually falling out. This may also pull out eyelashes that aren’t prepared to drop out, creating gaps in the eyelash line. Sleeping on a particular side more than the other may also result in irregular shedding of eyelashes. In general, the contact eyelashes create with pillows and blankets, the longer the adhesive will remain intact.
Suitable Lash Styles
Discuss curl options with your client before any application, so they have a realistic idea of the appearance you’re able to create for them. In your consultation, you should be explaining that naturally straight eyelashes will hold straighter eyelash extensions higher than ones with a sharp or dramatic curl. Extensions that are ideally suited to the eyelash contour of the client will last the longest and will not cause any pressure or harm to the natural eyelashes.
Hands Off Those Puppies!
Touching or fidgeting with your extensions may significantly change how long a set will last. The more you touch the extensions, the more likely it is that the glue will loosen and cause the eyelash to drop out. Inform your client to avoid any unnecessary eye contact, such as rubbing the eyes, playing with extensions, rubbing their face with a towel to wash, or touching them when putting on cosmetics.
