Today I wanted to answer the questions that so many of my clients that ask me about lashes. When can you wear lashes?... How long can you wear them safely? Is it healthy to wear extensions? Read on for my professional opinion and expert tips all about falsies!
- Will temporary false lashes ruin my natural ones?
No. The biggest myth is that lash glue will ruin your own lashes. It does not. If lashes are applied correctly and properly they will not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Although rubbing, tugging, or pulling on lashes connected to your own can cause permanent lash loss and damage.
- Can I wear false lashes everyday?
Yes! It's perfectly safe to wear false lashes every day. In fact, it is better to let your natural lashes breath by going without mascara and extensions, as these often damage your natural lashes over time.
- How long can I wear fake eyelashes?
Depending on how much glue you use, the lashes should last throughout an entire day. With waterproof glue you can play water sports or go hot tubbing but we do not recommend submerging your lashes underwater.
- Can I sleep in fake eyelashes?
You can sleep in them, but in the long run sleeping multiple times with your lashes on will increase your risk of eye infection and irritation.
Depending on the quality of your lashes and how you take care of your falsies will determine how long they will last. With proper care of Lash Binder™ eyelashes they can last 5-10 uses!
- How much do fake eyelashes cost?
Depending on the brand of lashes you buy you, it will cost anywhere from $5 to $30 for a pair of lashes. It depends on the quality, brand and hair type (human, mink, synthetic)
- What is the difference between false lashes and semi permanent lashes?
False lashes applied with Lash Binder take a few moments to apply, and another few seconds to remove. Lash Binder lasts a lifetime with proper care.
Semi permanent lashes are time-consuming (1-4 hours of maintenance per month) and cost anywhere between $100 and $300 per appointment. A full set might take two hours to apply and a refill application ranges from an hour to 90 minutes. Semi permanent lashes can also be very damaging for your lashes long term.
- Can I wear mascara with my false lashes?
Yes, you can apply mascara before you apply your lashes or after the lashes applied are dry to lock your real and fake lashes together, making them stand out even more. You can also line your eyes for a more dramatic look. Eye liner helps to define the lash line and also blends in the glue for a seamless finish.
- Should I wear clear or black glue?
Clear glue may be a better option if you are wearing a pair of lashes with a thin band or if you are less experienced with applying lash glue. Black glue dries dark and blends in easier to black eyeliner.
- How do I clean my false lashes?
After you've removed your falsies, gently peel any glue off the end of the band with your fingernails or tweezers.
- Can I wash my false eyelashes?
It is not recommended to wash human hair lashes, although mink lashes can be washed in a warm, soapy solution. Remove the glue and rinse the lashes with warm water, blot them dry and put them back in their box.
