These days the long, rich lashes you’re seeing on every woman are not the real deal. The culture of using eyelash extensions has gained a lot of popularity in the beauty industry, and I am truly intrigued by this phenomenon. Not like the old-fashioned false lashes which required nightly removal, eyelash extensions can be worn daily without damaging your natural lashes.
If you have invested in a pair of eyelash extensions, but think the lashes are too fine or have gaps due to fallout, then a splash of mascara is the perfect solution to make them look more full and thicker.
If you choose to use mascara for any of the reasons discussed above, you should use the right kind of mascara, and use the right method of application. Here are a few tips if you want to apply mascara to your eyelash extensions.
Kinds of Mascara Products To Use
You should always use a mascara with a water-based formula because an oil-based or waterproof mascara will break down the paste holding the extensions to your eyelids.
Keep in mind that makeup removal products can also damage your lashes as they dissolve the glue on your extensions. Products that are water-based or very light can help you reduce the damage to your extensions.
Method of Applying Mascara to Eyelash Extension
While applying mascara to your eyelash extension you need to be extra careful. The best method of application I have found is to focus on the middle to tip area of the extension while avoiding the roots. If you apply mascara from the base to the tip, the extension will become heavy and there’s a possibility that they may pull out the lashes, this will not only damage but weaken the extensions. Another tip to prolong the durability of your extensions is to use an oil-free makeup remover.
If you want to avoid using mascara altogether, I recommend NovaLash Extensions. It’s convenient and easy to use the product, which helps your natural eyelashes get a long and thick glamorous look. At the same time, being a great alternative for mascara. The best feature of NovaLash Extensions is that you can choose the thickness and length of your extensions, to fit the look you are going for. The result is that you get naturally thick and long glamorous eyelashes, which are difficult to detect even up close.
