The answer is yes, you can still enjoy using mascara on your eyelash extensions, as long as you have a classic set. Classic eyelash extensions offer an increase in thickness to those who already have fairly decent natural eyelashes. The final look of classic extensions is similar to that obtained with a high-quality mask. You can use mascara with eyelash extensions.
However, you should only use mascara with classic eyelash extensions and not with voluminous lashes. In addition, you should avoid waterproof mascara on eyelash extensions because it's difficult to remove. Instead, opt for a water-based solution. The mascara can be used on the lower eyelashes and before filling if necessary, only if it is water-based or specifically formulated for eyelash extensions.
Do not use oil-based or waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil-based mascara will dissolve the adhesive agent and shorten the lifespan of eyelash extensions. In addition, the brush can pull on the eyelashes and cause them to be damaged, loose or removed. If you are going to do it, be sure to shower first, as you won't be able to get your eyes wet for 24 hours afterwards or expose them to a large amount of steam for 48 hours if the glue comes off.
You can only use water-based makeup remover on your eyes and you should regularly comb your eyes with a clean mascara stick or eyelash comb. There are many eyelash extensions that you can use on a daily basis and that don't cause any harm to your natural eyelashes. When applied correctly, they shouldn't have any negative effects and, in fact, can cause less wear and tear on your eyelashes than applying mascara and curling them every day. When you use mascara on false eyelashes, it's important that you don't follow the same method that you use on natural eyelashes.
The best way to apply mascara to eyelash extensions is to start in the middle of the eyelash and work your way to the ends. Remember that classic eyelash extensions consist of an extension of a natural eyelash, while volume eyelashes are multiple extensions of a natural eyelash. When you add mascara, the upper and lower lashes will have the same color, especially if the extensions are black and the natural ones are brown. So what's better? Mascara or eyelash extensions? Both have their pros and cons, so it really depends on your individual needs and preferences.
Not all masques are good for false eyelashes, regardless of whether yours are made of synthetic or natural fibers. Not all masks are the same, and this is especially true when it comes to choosing a mask to use with extensions. If you still want to use mascara on your eyelash extensions, make sure to use classic lashes and not volume lashes. If you see any buildup of mascara on the extensions, you can use an eyelash extension brush to gently remove it.
The idea behind fiber mascara is to create the look of eyelash extensions by adding fibers to the natural ones to add volume and length. Oil-based masques can break the link between extension and natural eyelashes, causing them to fall out prematurely. That said, it's a good idea to choose a thicker eyelash extension (think 0.03 mm, 0.05 mm, or 0.07 mm) instead of ruining the extensions with repeated use of the mascara.
