Unlike false eyelashes that attach to your eyelids in a single strip, eyelash extensions attach to each of your eyelashes, giving them a fuller and longer appearance. If you have thin eyelashes or eyelashes that are light in color, you may find that you no longer need to rely on mascara to enhance them once you apply eyelash extensions. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t wear mascara if you so choose. While wearing mascara with extensions shouldn’t be an everyday practice, occasional wear is acceptable.
Apply the mascara in front of a brightly lit mirror so you can see what you are doing. A magnification mirror is ideal, but an ordinary vanity mirror should suffice.
Brush the mascara onto your upper eyelashes first, then the bottoms. Avoid the area closest to your lash line where the lash extensions attach with the adhesive. The mascara you choose should be water-soluble and oil-free.
Stick with a light application of mascara. One to two swoops with the mascara brush should be all that is necessary.
Remove the mascara using an oil-free makeup remover every evening.
