How to Wear Makeup with Eyelash Extensions

Having lash extensions can be a great way to make your eyes look more awake, big, and even sexier. But you should know that when wearing eyelash extensions, you have to take extra care of them by using certain products and techniques. Here are some tips on how to wear makeup with eyelash extensions.

Use oil-free products

While you should always use oil-free cosmetics on your eyelash extensions, it’s important to be careful when you’re wearing them. The Korean cosmetics at Glass Angel Skincare (an Australian online cosmetics retailer) is a trendy option as most of their products are oil-free. The quality of these products makes all the difference. Several brands give the best results while taking care of your skin, make sure to choose the right one to avoid long-term damage. The reason is that some makeup removers contain oil, which can cause your lashes to stick together and break off more easily.

Another thing to keep in mind is that oils can draw out the adhesive used during the extension process. This will lead to an uneven look and possibly even a loss of one or more lashes!

Avoid mascara

According to Australia’s leading lashes supplier LaviLash it is not recommended to wear mascara when using eyelash extensions. Your eyelash technician will likely ask you to avoid mascara, so make sure you listen to their instructions. Instead of applying mascara, use a lash primer or mascara with a light formula on your upper lashes (not your lower lashes) before getting your extensions done.

Remove all previous makeup before getting eyelash extensions done. The technicians must have a clear view of the condition of your natural lashes before they begin work on them–so no matter how much time you spend getting ready for bed each night, remove any trace of makeup first!

Do your eye makeup before getting your lashes done

One of the most important things to remember when getting your lashes done is to do your makeup before. This is because makeup can be messy and it’s just way easier to clean up any messes beforehand than it is on someone else’s face.

Secondly, if you plan on getting lash extensions, then I recommend doing this first so that there isn’t any mascara or eyeliner running into your new lashes (which would make them stick together).

The last reason for doing makeup first is because depending on what type of glue they use for the extension process; it can get a little messy afterward and will likely require some touch-ups!

Use a similar eyeliner colour to your hair

When applying eyeliner, it’s best to go with something less contracting and more like your natural hair colour. A pencil or gel liner will give you a softer look than liquid or cream. If you’re going for a bolder look, try using a tapered brush to apply your eyeliner. While applying mascara makeup, use high quality product and of the same colour of your eyelashes. With services like Superior Hair extensions it’s easy to change the colour and style of your hair completely if you’re looking for a new look.

Makeup wipes are your best friend during touch-ups

Because of Australia’s unpredictable weather, makeup remover wipes are a must for keeping your face looking fresh during touch-ups. They’re convenient, easy to use, and perfect for removing makeup and dirt from lashes.

But do not confuse a makeup remover wipe with one that removes eyelash glue! Removing the glue will make your eyelashes fall out, which is anything but desirable. Wipes should only be used on your face – and only around the eyes – not on your bottom lash line or anywhere else near the lash line itself (unless you want to risk damaging them).

Use a clean brush for blending and shadow application

When applying makeup, use a clean brush that is the same size as your lashes. It’s important to use a brush that is light for blending and application – don’t swipe your mascara wand across the entire eye. Start at the inner corner of your eye, then move to the outer corner and then blend outwards towards other areas like your brow bone or along your upper cheekbones.

A synthetic bristle brush is best for this purpose because it won’t be too stiff or too soft (like horsehair), which could cause damage to extensions when used improperly. Synthetic brushes are also good because they don’t absorb products like real fur would; so even if you want full coverage with concealer, there will still be plenty left over in case you need more later! This helps prevent premature clumping while also keeping everything looking fresh all day long!

With the right approach, your makeup will work well with your lashes

Whether you’re interested in eyelash extensions for the first time or have been wearing them for some time, it’s essential to know how to wear makeup with your extensions.

When you’re new to extensions, be sure that your technician knows how much makeup you typically use and has given you advice on what products are safe. Considering that Australia has a serious passion for beauty, you’d have easy access to the best quality products that are best suited to your skin type.
