Makeup Tip for your eyelash extensions 1: Avoid Oil Base Products
The oil will cause the glue that binds your extension to break down, so you should always look for oil-free makeup products. Not only you must use oil-free cosmetics, but also ensure that your makeup remover and regular skin regimen is oil-free. In the same way, using an oil-based makeup remover can cause your lashes to fall off.

Also, brush your lashes every morning as lash extensions tend to entangle with each other. Brush the lashes with a lash comb to straighten them out, but be careful not to pull. Another way to care for your lashes is to use an eyelash conditioner daily. Doing this will indeed allow your lashes to look perfect in between your lash top-ups.
