DON'T forget to groom your lashes daily.
After each appointment, your tech should provide you with a clean spoolie brush to keep your lashes aligned. Lightly brush them throughout the day to avoid looking messy.
DO cleanse your lashes.
While you may be wary of getting your extensions wet, it's important to wash your lashes daily. Your eyelashes exist to prevent dirt and debris from entering your eyes, and this grime can build up on extensions. Rinse your lashes gently with diluted baby shampoo (one tablespoon of baby shampoo to one cup of distilled water) once a day.
DON'T use oil-based products near your eyes.
Oil destroys the adhesive on your lash extensions, making them fall off sooner. Borboleta recommends skipping out on mascara altogether. But if you can't bear the thought of going without, steer clear of waterproof formulas (which are oil-based). Be sure to check the ingredient lists on your antiaging eye creams, too.
