Powder eyeshadow You need to pick a formula that's oil-free and won't run or smudge the lashes, which creams or liquids have a higher chance of doing. Crayons and pencils can be handy but may press too much on the eyelid which can damage the adhesive. Our recommendation is highly pigmented powder eyeshadow.
Can I wear eye shadow with eyelash extensions?
Yes, you can – as long as it oil-free and very low in glycol/glycerin. These ingredients attack the glue, eventually loosening the lash bond and causing extensions to fall.
What makeup is compatible with eyelash extensions?
When you have lash extensions, you can wear your usual face makeup, eyeliner, eyeshadow and even mascara, as long as it's all lash extension-friendly and all are not oil- or alcohol-based. If you apply face powders and eyeshadows, keep in mind that residue can flake off onto your lashes.
How do you keep eyeshadow off eyelash extensions?
Choose a matte powder eyeshadow (no cream-based shadow, please!) and apply it with a tight-bristled eyeshadow brush. Remove excess powder from your brush so that it doesn't fall and get trapped in your extensions.
What makeup to avoid with eyelash extensions?
Avoid oil-based products Oil-based products can break down the adhesive that holds the extensions in place, so it's best to avoid them altogether. Instead, opt for water-based or gel-based products.
How do you not get eyeshadow on eyelash extensions?
Our recommendation for the right brush to avoid this disaster is to use a tight-bristled brush around the lash line. It's easier to apply the eyeshadow in the right places without getting a ton of eyeshadow on your lashes, not your lids!
