Extending the Life of Your Eyelash Extensions

It has been proven that women spend a good chunk of their lives doing makeup and putting extra attention into their eyelashes. This is a good and bad thing because there are so many other things that they could be doing during that time.

Many women have recently realized this theory and have begun to take part in the eyelash extension revolution. With eyelash extensions, life is just easier as far as makeup goes. However, these extensions don’t last forever and can be quite costly. Find out how you can extend the life of your next set of extensions.

The Big Do Nots

Instead of starting out with what you should be doing, we have decided to go over some of the major things to avoid while you are living with eyelash extensions. Your eyelash extensions are an investment towards your outer beauty and you don’t want any simple mistakes to mess up your look. Here are some of our tip things to avoid during the aftercare process of your lashes.

  1. Do not use oil-based cleaners or makeup removers
  2. Do not rub towels over your face when drying your face; remember to pat dry
  3. Be wary of the water pressure that hits your eyelashes in the shower
  4. Do not use wet-based mascaras on your lash extensions

Sleep on Your Back

The position that you sleep in is important because after your application, the glue on your lashes needs some time to dry completely and you want to avoid messing them up within the first two nights. We suggest that you sleep on your back so that your lashes can have plenty of opportunity to completely dry and keep your look lasting longer.

Be Prepared to Give Them Lots of Attention

Your eyelash extensions are a delicate part of your body now, so you need to be ready to give your lashes the attention that they need to last. One of the ways to take care of your lashes is to gently go over the area with a cleansing wipe and avoid using cotton pads and puffs. You don’t want to weaken your lashes and walk around town with cotton fibers stuck in your investment.

You will also want to regularly oil your extensions up to keep them flexible. All this takes is a small drop of baby oil. Using this method in conjunction with a spoolie want to comb them out is a great way to take care of your lashes for an extended period of time.

Do Not Play with your Eyelash Extensions

Keep your hands off of your extensions. Your eyelashes are going to she naturally, and this shedding will push your extensions out making them look off. Avoid twisting or pulling them off in order to prevent your natural lashes from being removed.

Lash Out at Breast Cancer with Pink Eyelash Extensions

Every October, people all over the world celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month. The purpose of this month is to bring attention to a very common and life-threatening disease that enters the lives of more than 200,000 women each year and claims the lives of over 40,000. However, over the years, Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been transformed into a celebration of the strength and bravery of women who are fighting or have fought breast cancer. One of the most universal and recognizable ways that people show their solidarity is to wear the color pink. While the month of October is coming to a close, with Luxx Lash Salon and Boutique’s pink eyelash extension highlights by Xtreme Lashes, you can wear your support for breast cancer on your lash line all year long.



The History of Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

If you had a dollar for every time you saw the color pink on a person or product in October, you’d be a millionaire by the end of the month. But how did pink become the official symbol for breast cancer awareness? According to the Maurer Foundation for Breast Health Education, the first uses of pink date all the way back to the 19th century. During this time, many women wore yellow ribbons to honor their fathers, brothers, and husbands serving in the military. The hit song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” by Dawn reemphasized this practice, and families began tying yellow ribbons around trees as a tribute to loved ones held in the Iran hostage crisis.

The idea of wearing a colored ribbon to show support and solidarity spread over the years. Red ribbons were popular in the 80s and 90s to support AIDS awareness, and other causes and charities began adapting the concept to make it their own. In 1992, Alexandra Penney and Evelyn Lauder (the editor-in-chief of Self Magazine and breast cancer survivor and VP of Estée Lauder, respectively) joined forces to invent a pink ribbon. With 1.5 million pink ribbons, a breast self-exam card, and a petition to the White House to increase funding for breast cancer research, breast cancer awareness was born at Estee Lauder makeup counters all across the U.S. 20 years later, the color is still used as a symbol for health, life, and the empowerment of women.
