I occasionally get asked if I offer anything other than a full set for first time clients. The answer is “no”. The reason I do not offer anything other than a full set is because without a full set of beautiful extensions, the client will want & need to wear mascara to fill in the gaps. Wearing mascara, even the kind supposedly made exclusively for extensions is extremely damaging. I have found this out my sheer experience and seeing the results of wearing mascara along with extensions first hand. The only time it is appropriate to wear mascara along with extensions is when you do not intend on maintaining them, and are working back to just your natural lashes. All mascaras stubbornly stick to the extensions, making it extra difficult to remove at the end of the day. Often you will be forced to use special eye makeup remover to get the mascara off, which in turn will break down the glue and cause the extensions to fall off prematurely. Plus all the wear & tear off rubbing the lashes to get the mascara off is not good. And even worse, not getting all of the mascara off daily will cause mascara build-up on the lashes and extensions. Build-up is will cause lashes to stick together & dirt to accumulate, thus jeopardizing the health & future growth of your natural lashes!
