With anything that you apply to your body, especially beauty enhancers, there is always a possibility of something going wrong. Now, with eyelash extensions, you won’t cause too much damage to yourself if you mess up with the application or removal, so don’t worry too much. The extent of the damage you can do is removing some of your natural lashes, but they will grow back in due time. You may also spend more money than you were willing to on a product that you don’t like very much.
A list of things that could go wrong:
1. If you are applying eyelash extensions yourself then you need to be careful, especially if it is your first time applying extensions. If you overload your lashes with glue, you will weigh them down and bend your natural lashes too much until they break.
2. Taking showers and exposing your extensions to large amounts of water can be damaging as well. No, I am not saying that you need to stop taking showers, but you do need to watch how much exposure your lashes are getting to water, and powerful streams of it. It is also recommended that you don’t go swimming when you have eyelash extensions on. If you swim on a daily basis, you may want to reconsider eyelash extensions and try another route for making your lashes look more luscious.
3. In order to counter the problem of water and your exposure to it, you may be tempted to use waterproof mascara on your eyelashes. Don’t do try this at all. It may seem like a good idea in theory but it does not turn out well in real life. The waterproof mascara contains ingredients that will break down the glue that you have applied. There could be some embarrassing situations in your future if you use waterproof mascara because your extensions could fall out at any time.
4. Some women ask if they can wear fake eyelashes along with eyelash extensions. In response to that question I would ask, why do you need to double up? If you double up then you have to pay double the price and you will have double the “fake” on your eyelashes. More people will notice your eyes, but not for good reasons. Also, double the lashes means double the weight, pulling your natural lashes out in some instances. My advice would be to avoid having both on at the same time, it’s not worth it.
So the answer to whether eyelash extensions can go wrong or not, is that they most definitely can. If you don’t take care of your extensions properly then you will notice that they will fall out. The falling out of your extensions can lead to some embarrassing moments. You may be on a first date or at an important meeting when an eyelash extensions falls. If you don’t want that person to be you then try avoiding the scenarios listed above.
Eyelash extensions can be great enhancements to your eyes, but you must maintain them properly to get good results. Do everything you can to keep your eyelashes healthy and then you won’t have to worry about anything going wrong.
