Can You Wear Makeup With Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are perfect for accentuating and highlighting your eyes, but what about the rest of your look? Many people who hesitate to get lash extensions worry that if they do get eyelash extensions, they won’t be able to wear the kind of makeup they’re used to—or even wear makeup at all. While wearing eye makeup may not be possible with some inferior lash extensions, rest assured that you can wear makeup with your NovaLash extensions! NovaLash was created to be life-friendly, which means you can wear just about any makeup with your lash extensions.

Here’s what you need to know about wearing makeup with NovaLash eyelash extensions.

NovaLash’s Oil-Friendly Adhesive Is Eye-Makeup Friendly

Most lash extension companies warn customers not to use cosmetics containing oil, since the oil can break down their cheap adhesive. NovaLash is different! Lab-tested to provide beautiful, long-lasting results that can handle whatever life throws at you, you can wear oil-based makeup with your NovaLash extensions without worrying about the adhesive breaking down. In fact, one of the main ingredients in NovaLash’s aftercare solution is oil, which helps keep the lashes and the adhesive soft and supple for weeks.

Which Eye Shadow to Wear With NovaLash Extensions

Once NovaLash’s cream shadow dries on your eyelids, it lasts for 24 hours, meaning that you have full coverage and gorgeous looks no matter what you do that day, whether that’s taking a dip in the pool, attending an outdoor wedding in the sweltering sun, or partying it up at a music festival. Plus, they’re smudge-free, no matter what your life throws at you. NovaLash’s 24-hour cream shadows come in a whole rainbow of colors. They’re humidity-proof, waterproof, and easy to apply.

Which Eye Liner to Wear With NovaLash Extensions

Lash extensions can give you the appearance of wearing eyeliner, but for those who want a little extra drama, eyelash extension-friendly liner is a must. You’ll want to make sure that your liner goes on gently enough that it doesn’t mess up your lashes, but still shows up. For day-to-day wear, we recommend our JETliner by NovaLash, which allows for extended wear since it’s smudge-proof and waterproof.

Which Mascara to Wear With NovaLash Extensions

The beauty of wearing eyelash extensions is that you can skip the mascara on a daily basis. However, adding an eyelash extension-friendly mascara to your routine is a great idea when you’re looking to fill in your lashes between touch-up appointments. If you’re like us, you like to keep a tube of mascara on hand even when your lash extensions are at their most full and fluffy, just in case. Just be careful not to use mascara that hasn’t been specifically designed for use with lash extensions. If you’re wearing lash extensions and you use normal mascara, your lashes could get damaged. NovaLash’s mascara is a deep black, clump-free formula that has been specifically created for optimal performance with NovaLash lash extensions. Not only that, but NovaLash’s mascara nourishes and conditions your natural lashes as it works to emphasize your eyes, so it’s great for use even for those rare times when you aren’t sporting lash extensions.

NovaLash Makes Makeup Remover Safe for Eyelash Extensions

Now that you know how to wear makeup with your eyelash extensions, you might be wondering how to remove makeup with eyelash extensions on. NovaLash has designed a solvent-free lash cleaner and makeup remover specifically for use with your NovaLash extensions: cleanLASH. With cleanLASH, you can keep your lashes and eyes clean without worrying about flipping, twisting, or tangling your extensions. Plus, cleanLASH also moisturizes and conditions your extensions as it cleans, which helps actually lengthen the lifespan of your extensions!

While it might seem risky to wear makeup with other lash extension brands, with NovaLash, you can rest assured that your lashes were meant to shine. All of NovaLash’s cosmetics are specifically designed to work with your lashes, not against them. Talk about winning combinations!
