Can I do lash extensions on myself?
Apply the short lashes as close to your inner eye as possible. Since these lashes are a lot smaller, they can be a bit tricky to attach to your own lashes. Just go as far in as you can. Once your lashes are applied, don’t add any mascara or eye makeup for a few hours to make sure the lashes set completely.
How are eyelash extensions applied?
Lash extensions are individually applied synthetic or natural hair fibers attached to the base of each eyelash with surgical glue. Each fake lash is applied one by one (it’s a painstaking, time-consuming process) to your own eyelashes.
Can you use regular lash glue for eyelash extensions?
The glue is also made to cling to your own (natural) lashes, NOT your skin. Individual lash glues should be used with individual lashes only – NEVER on a strip lash. Basically: strip lash glues can be used for all types of false lashes; individual lash glues are used ONLY with individual eyelashes.
How do I fix my eyelash extensions after sleeping?
Try to sleep gently on them during this time. During the first 12 hours, the glue is still “curing” so it’s super important to follow the after -care during this time. You may want to gently brush them during this time so the glue will dry and the lashes will set in the way you want them to look.

How long does it take a beginner to do eyelash extensions?
It can take from about 1.5 to 4 hours for the initial application, depending on the style you want to reach, and how experienced your lash artist is. The fill (touch-up) can take up to an hour or two. You’ll need to get a fill every two to three weeks.
Do lash extensions damage your real lashes?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.
Why are eyelashes short after extensions?
This can take up to five weeks depending on your lash growth cycle. If you’ve ever had your eyelash extensions grow out naturally, you might notice that your lashes look extra stubby and short – this is most likely because your lashes broke when the lash extension came off!
Why are lash extensions so expensive?
So, why are eyelash extensions so expensive? For a lot of reasons! Overhead: you have to pay rent and utilities, a cleaning person, and for supplies.
