Here, the five tips I’ve learned over the years that help me keep my extensions intact, beautiful and looking good for a long time (I’m talking for about a period two to three months):
1. Sleep on your back
This might sound like a strange request, but it’s really important directly following your application, since the glue takes a while to dry fully and you’ll otherwise get weird kinks. After a night or two, resume your normal sleeping position and everything will be good. Just allow a good amount of time (couple days for the glue to completely dry up and the eyelashes to looks and stay perfect).
2. Give your lashes a little more attention
When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a cleansing wipe instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids — not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes.

3. Use oil-free cleansing products
The oil will affect the bonds of your eyelash extensions. You can use oil free makeup removal, special foam or a baby soap.
4. Regularly comb them out
To prevent any criss-crossing or wonky-looking lashes, use a spoolie wand. Close one eye, place the spoolie on top of your lashes, then roll the brush over lashes to keep them defined. Easy, smooth and nice!
5. Avoid playing with them
Your eyelashes shed naturally, so when you have extensions, this will help push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off — you’ll risk losing your natural lashes. Let them come out on their own, and use a spoolie to brush them back into place in the meantime.
