Please do not do this! Pulling out your lashes will traumatize the follicle meaning your lashes will not grow back in that spot. Therefore, it is integral that you either wait for your extensions to fall out naturally or return to your lash clinic to have them removed.
While the amount of maintenance is minute, it is still important. Firstly, after having your lash extensions applied, you should not get them wet for 24 hours – this is to ensure the glue dries perfectly. You should also avoid any contact with oil, and this can weaken the hold of the glue.
You can absolutely put mascara on top of your extensions. This is common if you want a more glamorous look for a night or towards the end of the six weeks. Just ensure you do not use oil-based or waterproof mascara.
