Stay on top of your infills.
With proper care, I can get my extensions to last up to a month and a half. Most places recommend you come back every 2-3 weeks for a touch up, but if you’re looking to save a bit of money, you can prolong their lifespan. Just be careful not to get water on your lashes and don’t use oily products near your eyes.
If you can’t stand the thought of ditching your smoky eye, don’t worry, you don’t have to. Only liquid-based eye products can be damaging to the extensions, but you can get away with a tiny wing of liquid liner as long as you’re not dragging it along the lash line. Make sure to carefully remove the shadow or liner with oil-free makeup remover and Q-tips for precision. Most importantly, stay away from mascara entirely as it leaves the extensions crusty and damaged. It’s only acceptable if you’re at the end of your cycle and will be getting a fresh set in a few days.
That is, if you don’t play by the rules. I am one of the many people who have made the mistake of pulling out the extensions myself–not only is it extremely painful but it leaves you with few to no natural eyelashes left. However, after what I like to call the intense “eyelash rehab” program of applying Vaseline to my lashes every night, my natural eyelashes were back to normal after a month and a half.
Eyelash extensions should look natural and the client should not be able to feel them AT ALL. I have had some clients tell me that their last eyelash extensions hurt. This should never happen. One bad extension job can put a person off from extensions for life. Don’t use cheap lashes like clusters or cheap glue. Quality Eyelash extension products can be purchased in my Lash Store I use only synthetic lashes because mink lashes are manually curled and with washing and handling they lose their curl where synthetic lashes do not. There is no visual difference between synthetic and mink lashes. Practice for free on family members and friends. Practice, practice, practice. Get a mentor to help you or contact me if you have questions.It is very important to instruct your clients on how to take care of their lashes. This one thing could be the thing that determines if a client turns into a regular client or gets really mad. I have provided Eyelash Extension Care Instructions for you to use. Make sure the client NEVER pulls off the extension. If the client wants to take off the extensions then they need to wait for their natural lashes to fall off which takes no more than 60 days, or they need to go to a lash artist and have them professionally taken off.
