Can I Wear Mascara the Day Before a Lash Lift?

If you're considering getting an eyelash lift, you may be wondering if you can wear mascara the day before. The answer is no. To ensure the best results, it's important to avoid using mascara 24 hours before your appointment. Oils and residues from mascara can interfere with the procedure, so it's best to keep your eyelashes clean and dry.

It's also recommended to avoid using waterproof mascara 48 hours before the procedure, as it can leave unwanted residue. For best results, don't curl your eyelashes 2 to 4 days before treatment either. If you must curl up, girl, live your life, but definitely not the day before. You should wait 24 hours after an eyelash lift before applying mascara so that the perm solution has time to settle and not give your eyelashes a crooked shape.

Following these basic aftercare rules will generally cause the eyelash lift to last a full period of 6 weeks. In addition to avoiding mascara, you should also wait 48 hours before getting your lashes wet. This includes avoiding water-based masks or mineral masks for 4 to 6 weeks while maintaining the eyelash lift. Don't put on makeup for at least a day afterward and don't use makeup or oil-based eye cleansers for 4 to 6 weeks either.

Eyelash lifts are a great option for those looking to improve their daily look without having to deal with the hassle of eyelash extensions. An eyelash lift doesn't require as much maintenance as extensions and it looks much more natural, making it perfect for an everyday look. However, be aware that eyelash serums have caused allergic reactions in the past, as well as dry and itchy eyes. If you want to achieve long eyelashes without mascara, an eyelash lift and tint may be the right solution.

It's important to follow all instructions given to you regarding the aftercare of the eyelash lift so that you can maintain the lift as long as possible. Unlike extensions that can last indefinitely with proper maintenance, an eyelash lift only lasts as long as a person's personal growth cycle lasts.
