How to Make Eyelash Extensions Last Longer?

As a consumer investing in high-quality Eyelash Extensions Last Longer, it’s only natural to want to extend their longevity. In this article, I’ll be divulging the top 6 essential tips that you can begin implementing right away to ensure that your eyelash extensions stay intact for a longer period.

Handle with Care!

Although it may sound obvious, many people handle their lash extensions too harshly, leading to premature shedding.
Refrain from rubbing or tugging at your eyes, as this can cause your lashes to fall out.
When applying cleansers and makeup around the eyes, exercise caution. Failure to be gentle is one of the primary causes of early lash extension loss!

Apply an Eyelash Extension Sealant

Think of a lash sealer as a safeguard for your extensions. Applying a consistent layer every morning can help secure your lashes for a longer period. For further guidance on how to use a lash sealer, follow these three simple steps:

Apply an Eyelash Extension Sealer

Think of a lash sealant as your safety net. Applying an even layer every morning can help extend the life of your extensions by keeping them securely in place. To ensure proper application, follow these three simple steps:

⦁ Remove Excess: Before applying, wipe off any excess product from the brush by swiping it across the opening of the tube. Remember, a little goes a long way!
⦁ Apply on Top: Position the lash sealant brush along the top of your lash line and glide it along the bonded area where your natural lashes meet your lash line.
⦁ Finish Underneath for Extra Hold: If you have extra-voluminous lash extensions, apply a light layer underneath your lash line using a dabbing motion rather than a sweeping one.

With so many lash sealers available, it can be hard to choose the right one. After testing various options, I recommend these two:

⦁ Blink Black Diamond Sealant: This contains acrylic and hyaluronic serum to keep your extensions adhered to and conditioned.
⦁ BL Crystal Drop Eyelash Coating Sealant: Formulated with essential B vitamins and acids, this sealant forms a protective barrier around your delicate lash extensions and shields them from potential damage caused by sweat, water, and other elements.

Skip The Waterproof Mascara

In general, I suggest avoiding mascara if you want your eyelash extensions to last longer, particularly if you have volume lashes. This is because removing eye makeup with attached extensions can be challenging, and you risk tangling and damaging them.

But if you really want to add more oomph to your lashes, steer clear of waterproof mascara and eyeliner. The rubbing involved in removing these products can cause early and excessive loss of lash extensions and poor retention. That’s definitely not what you want, right?

Sleep on Your Back

My apologies to those who love snuggling with their pillow at night, but if you want to maintain your lash extensions for a longer period, it’s better to avoid it. For optimal upkeep, it’s best to try and sleep on your back. Additionally, I suggest purchasing a silk pillowcase to minimize any potential tugging on your lashes if you do roll over during the night.

Use Oil-Free Makeup Removers

Opt for makeup removers that are free of oil when you have eyelash extensions. Using anything else can lead to losing your extensions quickly. The oil in these products breaks down the adhesive, which results in the extensions falling out. Similarly, avoid using oil-based serums and cleansers around your lash line as they can also cause the adhesive to weaken and extensions to fall off.

Clean and Brush Your Eyelash Extensions Daily

In the end, the most efficient approach to achieving good retention of your lash extensions is by maintaining their cleanliness. If you already have a skincare regimen in place, you’re on the right track! However, to ensure that your lashes stay clean and securely attached, it’s best to incorporate an oil-free, extension-friendly cleanser into your daily morning and night routine.

Why Your Lash Extensions Didn’t Last?

There are typically two primary factors that may account for why your eyelash extensions didn’t last as long as you anticipated:

Inferior application quality by the lash technician.
Aftercare regimen that did not meet expectations.
Below, I will provide some general assumptions based on the duration since you received your lash extensions.

My Eyelash Extensions Only Lasted a Day

If your lash extensions are falling out less than 24 hours after application, it is likely that there is an issue with the adhesive used to attach them to your natural lashes. In many instances, the glue may have been stored improperly or expired, causing it to dry out too quickly and not bond properly. Another possibility is that too little or too much glue was used.

If this is the case, I recommend contacting your lash technician right away so that they can examine the issue and determine the cause. If the extensions do not last longer than a day, most lash technicians will typically apply a new set.

My Eyelash Extensions Only Lasted a Day

If your eyelash extensions fell out within a week of application, it’s probable that your aftercare routine was not optimal. You might have slept with your face pressed against the pillow, used a cleanser containing oil, or skipped the daily washing of your extensions. All of these errors could significantly impact the endurance of your lash extensions. If you find yourself in this situation, it’s still recommended that you reach out to your stylist to assess the lashes and provide tailored recommendations based on their condition.
