Who doesn’t want all the extra lash volume they can get? OK, so it’s not crazy to wonder what might happen if you spiced up your extensions by adding your favourite false lashes on top.
But the question is – is it a good idea?
Read on to find out!
Extensions are artificial fibres attached individually to your natural lashes using a glue, making your lashes look longer.
Extensions can damage your natural lashes in a number of ways:
As you can see, extensions already give your natural lashes a load of problems. But when you add a falsie on top, you can end up damaging both.
Extra Weight – the extra weight of a falsie added to the weight of your extensions will put even more pressure on your natural lashes and can even lead to... gulp... eyelash balding.
Sticky Glue – if the glue you use to apply your falsie gets on to your extensions, it can cause them to clump, ruining their appearance.
Removal – and if you do accidentally get lash glue on your extensions, what happens when you remove your falsie? There’s a risk you’ll pull out the extension and your natural lash with it!
Wearing a falsie on top of your extensions isn’t a good move.
1) Stay away from lash extensions which can damage your natural lashes. If you already have extensions, find out how to have them removed safely here.
2) Nourish and strengthen your natural lashes using a Lash Growth Serum.
3) Get all the volume you need by finding the falsie that’s right for you! Start by working out your eye shape.
That’s your 1,2,3 to longer, thicker lashes!
