OILS CAN BE FOUND IN YOUR HAIR, IN YOUR LASHES, ON YOUR FINGERS, IN YOUR SKINCARE
OR ON YOUR SALAD. JK. NO REALLY THOUGH.
A POST FOR CLIENTS
I've been wearing volume lashes for a long time now. I love them & they're easy.
THEY'RE DESIGNED TO MAKE LIFE EASIER.
Don't let them be a burden to your routine - just be mindful. I'll tell you how.
- You can use an oil face wash, but be very careful not to get it near the eye area. Be the most careful when rinsing it off.
PRO TIP: use a damp cloth to remove the product so the residue does not slide into your lash line.
- You can use an eye cream, but apply a very conservative amount away from the lash line. The warmth of your skin will drag the product up higher. Do not apply oil-based products to your upper eyelid.
- You can use an oil-based face moisturizer, but follow the same steps as specified above. Don't apply it below your brow, or too close to the outer corner of your eye, or below the eye.
The biggest lesson you're going to learn as a lash-extension-wearer is that oil will cause you to come in for fills sooner.
They will also make your volume lashes look LESS FLUFFY.
Natural oils are everywhere and can't be avoided. It's in our tears to lubricate our eyes. It's on our hairs (eyelashes included) to condition them. It's in our skin to maintain a healthy barrier and moisturize it. As women, we even produce more sebum (skin oil) around our monthly cycle. When oil/product residue touches a symmetrical, fluffy volume fan, it will cause the extension fibers to cling to each other.
Think about how your hair sticks flat to your head when it's oily. Now think about freshly showered hair, fly aways everywhere people.
It's fluffy and it looks FULLER.
