We do not recommend wearing mascara since it is very difficult to remove from the extensions without pulling at your natural eyelashes. Please use oil-free cosmetics when removing makeup close to the eye area while you still have eyelash extensions on.
5. Can I use an eyelash curler to curl my lash extensions?
No, an eyelash curler will break the bond on your extensions and will damage your natural eyelashes.
6. Can I still draw eyeliner?
Yes, you can. However, only water-based makeup removal should be used as oil based makeup removal will disintegrate the glue holding the extensions to your lashes. Do use a cotton bud to remove eyeliner. If a cotton pad is used, remove the eye makeup in upward sweeping motion.

We use top grade glue from Korea that is suitable even for sensitive eyes.

Please do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself as it may hurt your own lashes. It is best to schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed by us, with a special removing solvent. You may also choose to wait for your natural lash cycle to complete and have the extensions fall off naturally.

Yes, you can. It is important to keep your eye area clean. However, it is advisable to only let your eye area be in contact with water 4-6 hours after extension.
10. Will extensions cause my own lashes to fall out?
It is a common misconception that extensions cause natural lashes to fall out. Each day 3-5 of our own lashes fall,however, very often it goes unnoticed as our lashes are very fine. With extensions, the lashes are now thicker and longer, hence it is more apparent that the lashes have fallout.
