How to make your eyelash extensions last with these top tips.

Written in partnership with The Lash Lounge Mechanicsburg. Opinions are my own.

I love my lash extensions from The Lash Lounge Mechanicsburg. At first, I wasn’t sure how I would adapt to the maintenance or if they would bother me or look too “not me.”

You can read more about my decision to get lash extensions here, plus the exact type I get and my official review here.

A lot of people have asked what the maintenance is like for lash extensions, so I’m breaking down the process to show you just how easy it is to ensure your eyelashes are looking great.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Immediately after your full set or fill, you want to stay away from water for a solid 8-24 hours (the longer the better!). That means maybe skipping a workout (steamy sweat!), avoiding the shower, using face wipes to wash your face, and try to avoid watching any tearjerkers!

After that, you’ll want to follow just a few simple tips to keep your lash extensions in top condition.

Lash Extension Maintenance

In the mornings, I wash my face as normal. Once I finish my skincare routine, I apply any makeup I may be wearing. Then, I brush through my lashes with a clean spoolie and follow with a coat of Black Diamond. This comes in a small tube like mascara, and you apply it just the same, wiggling the wand at the base of your lashes (though you don’t have to coat the entire lash). This acts as an adhesive booster!

If you’re out and about (particularly in windy weather), you might want to keep a travel spoolie with you to brush through lashes as needed throughout the day. At home you won’t likely need this.

Before bed, I clean my lashes with Lash Detox. One pump of this foam cleanser is all I need. I use the special lash brush it comes with and cleanse my lash line and lashes gently, then rinse! I brush thought my lashes one more time before bed, and I sleep with a eye mask with small domes to help protect my lashes as I sleep.

Of course, biweekly fills also ensure that my lashes are looking full. I’m enjoying the 30-45 minutes “lash nap.”

All of these maintenance tools are even easier with a Lash Lounge Membership.
