Can I use mascara over eyelash extensions?

If you are someone who has recently gotten eyelash extensions applied, you may be wondering if it is safe to use mascara over the eyelash extensions. After all, mascara can add extra volume and length to your eyelash extensions, making them appear even more dramatic. However, using mascara over eyelash extensions may not be as simple as it seems. Here's what you need to know before you reach for your mascara everyday mascara.

Firstly, it's important to note that eyelash extensions are designed to enhance natural lashes. They are made of PBT which is glued onto your natural eyelashes using eyelash extension adhesive. Using mascara for volume lashes can cause the eyelash extensions to clump together, which can ruin the look that you are trying to achieve.

Another important factor to consider is the type of mascara that you are using. Not all mascaras are suitable for use with eyelash extensions. Waterproof mascara, for instance, can be difficult to remove and can weaken the bond between the eyelash extensions and your natural eyelashes. It's also important to avoid oil-based mascaras, as they can dissolve the eyelash extension adhesive used to attach the eyelash extensions. Instead, you should opt for a mascara that is specifically designed and formulated for use with eyelash extensions.

If you do choose to use mascara over your eyelash extensions, there are a few tips and precautions that you should keep in mind, even if the mascara is our very own growth mascara. Firstly, make sure that your eyelash extensions and natural eyelashes are completely dry before applying the mascara. If they are still wet, the mascara can cause the extensions to clump together. You should also be very gentle when applying mascara, taking care not to tug on the eyelash extensions or apply too much pressure.

In summary, while it is possible to use mascara over eyelash extensions, it may not always be advisable. If you feel that your natural eyelashes need a little extra volume, be weary of the mascara you use. Use only high-quality mascara that has the appropriate ingredients. If you do choose to use mascara, make sure that it is safe for use with eyelash extensions and that you apply it gently to avoid damaging your eyelash extensions.
