Mascara is prohibited while wearing eyelash extensions. Mascara will coat your extensions, erode the adhesive and be very difficult to remove while wearing extensions. The Lash Addict cannot guarantee the results or retention of your eyelash extensions if you arrive to your appointment with makeup on your eyelids or eyelashes (mascara, eyeliner, primer, foundation, etc.). If arriving to your appointment with mascara, your appointment may be cancelled, a Removal may be recommended and fees may apply. Mascara on your lower lashes is generally okay, however, excessive amounts of mascara on your lower lashes can interfere with the adhesive bond on your upper lashes.
Pencil, gel and liquid eyeliner is prohibited while wearing eyelash extensions. These types of eyeliners will coat your lashes, erode the adhesive and will be very difficult to remove without removing your extensions. If arriving to your appointment with eyeliner on your eyelashes, your touch up appointment may be amended to a removal and fees may apply. The Lash Addict cannot guarantee the results or retention of your eyelash extensions if you arrive to your appointment with makeup on your lid or eyelashes. The Lash Addict recommends using powder eyeliner.
Avoid excessive moisture, humidity and sweat for the first 48 hours after your appointment. This includes long and steamy showers, saunas, hot tubs and hot yoga. You may shower however, please do not soak your new lashes. Avoid touching your lashes. Touching (picking, pulling, rubbing) your lashes loosens the adhesive bond through friction and oil contamination. Additionally, you risk losing your natural lashes by pulling or rubbing them. Avoid blowing air conditioning or fans directly on lashes (in car, at desk, while sleeping etc.) This can dry lash adhesive and result in adhesive brittleness and premature lash extension loss. Sleeping on your back is best for your eyelash extensions. Sleeping on your sides will result in loss of the eyelash extensions on your outer corners. Sleeping in your face will result in premature loss of your extensions.

Cleanse your lashes at least twice each week, daily if you wear make up to maintain clean and healthy lashes. You may use the foaming lash shampoo from our studio.
Brush lashes with a clean mascara wand daily. Wait 24 hours after lash service. Gently roll the brush over the tips of the lashes with eyes closed to detangle. Open eyes and adjust lashes with brush.
Keep lashes away from heat. Be careful when opening the oven door or grill lid. Be mindful of using heat hair tools near your lashes. Excessive heat from these sources can singe your lashes.
