Infinit Lash Products, based in Del Mar, California, has announced that they have recently published a blog post that explains what products a person with eyelash extensions should avoid. For instance, lash artists can tell their clients that they can wear eyeliner but they should choose a liquid or gel-based eyeliner and they should not go for the wax-based eyeliners as these can affect the eyelash extension glue.
Tasha Land, a professional lash artist and founder of Infinit Lash Products, says, “Cyanoacrylate is the main ingredient in eyelash extension adhesives and is a polar molecule. I’m sure you are familiar with the saying, "like attracts like", but in this case, "like dissolves like". Polar molecules are broken down by other polar molecules. The same is true for nonpolar molecules. Many cosmetics contain both polar and nonpolar molecules, and the ones that contain more polar molecules should be avoided to preserve the life of the lash extensions. Makeup that doesn’t have direct contact with your lashes, like powder or foundation, do not need to be avoided regardless of their chemical composition. Products that come into direct contact with the lashes are typically, eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, and makeup removers.”
For those who ask “can you wear eyeliner with eyelash extensions”, the answer is yes as long as the eyeliner is liquid or gel-based. However, eyeliners that are wax-based are to be avoided. The problem is that most pencil liners contain wax in order to allow the product to stick to the skin on the eyelids as well as to the lashes. When removing the pencil liner, the lashes can be pulled out and it can also leave some residue in the lashes even after makeup remover has been used. A possible alternative is to avoid using the pencil liner and instead use fuller lashes, which provide the illusion of an eyeliner.
Meanwhile, most clients want to get lash extensions in order to avoid the necessity for wearing mascara. But for those who want to add more volume to their lashes, they have to use a water-based oil free mascara. Also, they will need to be gentle when removing the mascara so as not to accidentally pull out any lash extensions.
As for eyeshadow, powder shadows are recommended because they do not touch the lashes. Cream and paste eyeshadows should be avoided because they will likely dissolve the adhesive, causing the extensions to fall off.
And with regards to makeup removers, the oil-based ones are to be avoided. The polar components of these removers weaken the adhesion between the extensions and the natural lashes, also resulting in the extensions falling off. Makeup wipes are also not advisable to use for the same reason. Generally, a lash cleanser or baby shampoo are safe. Cotton balls, q-tips or pads should not be used in removing makeup as the cotton fibers can get caught in the lashes and may even cause some lash extensions to be pulled out. Micro swabs or disposable lint-free flocked applicators from Infinit Lash Products are recommended.
With regards to physical activities, wearing eyelash extensions generally don’t preclude activities like working out, swimming, sweating, and more. However, clients should be advised not to pick at their lashes or rub their eyes, which they may either do absent-mindedly or while asleep. It would be a good practice to remind clients that they should not touch or rub their eyes harshly because these actions can pull out their natural lashes or even cause the extensions to come off.
Infinit Lash Products makes sure that its products like the lash extension adhesive do not contain any latex or formaldehyde, which can cause harm to a person’s health. Furthermore, every ingredient for their products has been personally sourced and salon tested. This guarantees that their product will always be of high quality.
