We need your eyelashes to be in the most natural and healthy state possible before applying the eyelash extension.

Do not curl your eyelashes or use any other manipulations on them on the day of your appointment. Showers, steam baths, saunas, or crying are not allowed for the first 24 to 48 hours after application. Richardson recommends not wearing mascara to the appointment or using any oil-based makeup products around the eyes. This will help the adhesive to adhere better and will make the application process much smoother.

You've decided to make it official with eyelash extensions, but you have no idea how to prepare. The eyelash artist will trace the design of the eyelashes and then apply the extensions, using a pair of tweezers to separate the natural eyelashes and another pair to pick up and fix the extensions. Your eyes will be closed during the application of the eyelash extensions. To avoid any discomfort, it is always suggested to remove contact lenses so that the eyes are comfortable in a natural and rested state.

Oils that contain a lot of moisturizers and sunscreens can prevent eyelash glue from adhering properly to natural eyelashes, dramatically reducing the longevity of eyelash extensions. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your experience with eyelash extensions is as positive and comfortable as possible.
