Should I use mascara over my eyelash extensions?

When we put on mascara we do it to define, lengthen, thicken and curve our eyelashes. Depending on the effect we want, we will use one mask or another, or we will apply several layers.

The same goes for eyelash extensions. We put them on to define, lengthen, thicken and curve our eyelashes. And depending on the result we want, we will resort to one effect or another: hair to hair If we want it discreet, Mixed mask if we want them to be noticed a lot or Russian Volume if we want to cause maximum sensation.

Two different things

Mask and extensions are different techniques and therefore we should not mix them. Among other differences, extensions provide a natural look and remain for several weeks (depending on the effect). On the contrary, the mask has an artificial effect and only lasts a few hours. Thus, if we want to have beautiful eyelashes we must choose one technique or another, but never both at the same time.

If we opt for effectiveness, naturalness and durability, eyelash extensions are the best. In this case, we must take into account several tips to avoid falling into the temptation of using a mask on them. If we notice our extensions are scarce, short or unattractive and we think we need to use mascara, perhaps the time has come to choose the next effect.

The advice of Lashes Madrid

Applying mascara to the extensions will not double the effect, on the contrary, it will make the extensions have a shorter life. In Lashes Madrid We do not recommend using mascara over our extensions because:

  • When applying the mascara, it is possible to remove the extensions with the brush.
  • Mascara is one of the most difficult cosmetic products to remove makeup. To remove it completely, we must rub and use products that will certainly also make the extensions fall out.
  • When wearing mascara, the extensions can bend or break, giving an unnatural look.
