Having eyelash extensions is convenient because you don’t need to wear a lot of makeup. However, during holidays and special occasions, you may want to add a little extra glam to your eyes. If you’re unsure about how to apply eye makeup without damaging your eyelash extensions, don’t worry! We have an easy and foolproof method for you. In this personal blog post, we’ll share an easy eyeshadow and eyeliner application, as well as how to remove makeup and wash your lashes without causing any harm to your extensions. Let’s dive right in!
Step-by-Step Guide from Our Senior Lash Stylist, Anna:
To give you the best advice, we have a video tutorial featuring our lovely senior lash stylist, Anna. Her secret technique to the easiest eyeliner application is using an eyeshadow applied with a damp small angled brush. This not only gives you a bolder eyeliner look but also ensures it lasts longer.
Before you begin, ensure you have the right tools and products: an oil-free makeup remover, All-in-One Foaming cleanser, eyeshadow, eyeshadow brush, and a small angled brush for eyeliner. It’s essential to use products that are safe and suitable for eyelash extensions.
Step 1: Prime and Powder Your Eye Area
Step 2: Eye Shadow Application
Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, dip into your preferred shades, tap off any excess, and gently blend start from outer corner onto your eyelids. Remember, less is more! Avoid applying heavy pressure or pulling on your lashes while blending.
Step 3: Eyeliner Application
Take a small angled brush and dampen it slightly with water. Tap off any excess water onto a paper towel, then pick up some eyeshadow with the damp brush. Gently apply a thin line along your upper lash line using the angled brush, then followings at lower lash line. Take your time and ensure a steady hand for a flawless finish. Avoid applying directly to the waterline, as it may cause retention issues. For a softer eyeliner look, you can layer eyeshadow on top of the liner.
Finish your look with highlighter (optional) and don’t forget to brush your lash extensions with a spoolie.
How to Remove Makeup and Wash Your Lashes:
At the end of the day, it’s crucial to remove your makeup gently and cleanse your lashes properly to maintain their longevity.
1. Begin by using a mild, oil-free makeup remover on a lint-free cotton pad. Press it gently against your closed eyelids and hold for a few seconds to allow the product to dissolve the makeup.
2. Gently wipe away the makeup, moving in a downward motion, away from your extensions.
3. Wash your face and lashes with a specially formulated All-in-One Foaming cleanser using your fingers. Use gentle, downward strokes to clean the extensions thoroughly.
4. Pat your face dry with a towel, ensuring there is no lint on your lashes.
5. Finish by brushing your extensions with a spoolie brush after they have dried.
