Mascara can be worn on eyelash extensions, not that’s it’s really needed. I always tell my clients to avoid using it as removing it can be tricky. To remove it use oil-free make-up remover. If any mascara is left on your lashes at your infills appointment this will effect how long the eyelash technician has to apply new lashes, as every last bit of it needs to be removed before starting. Any mascara left on lashes will cause a barrier between the extension and natural lashes so the new lashes simply won’t stick! If the extensions come off in 3 days after application there has been a problem with application.
However if you feel you need to use mascara on your eyelash extensions for a special occasion where you want your lashes extra bold! Always make sure it’s designed to go on eyelash extensions. It needs to be oil-free. Oily mascaras will simply break down the eyelash extension glue and the lashes won’t last as long. There are loads of different brands available online. Remember to dispose of any mascara after 6 months of opening. Never share with friends as they can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Also avoid applying it to the base of the lashes. Always remove at nighttime. Removing make-up should always be a gentle process you don’t want to risk damaging your eyelash extensions.

I personally wash my clients eyes with a disinfected make-up brush with baby shampoo mixed with cooled boiled water in a foaming bottle. To disinfect your brushes first soak them in Babicide (Barbidice is the blue solution you often see on the hair dressing stations) for 15 mins and the clean with alcohol. After allowing them to dry store in a sealed container.
