There's a catch-22 when it comes to eyelash extensions. They give your lashes added length and volume, which makes the rest of your makeup look great. But because of how delicate they are, there are certain eyeliners that won't work with them. So how do you figure out what the best eyeliners for lash extensions are? Well, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First of all, you want to look for a formula that's oil-free. Why? Oils can break down the glue that holds your extensions on, meaning that they'll fall out more easily. A lot of formulas need oils or harsh ingredients to break them down, which can also break down your lashes. And surprisingly, a lot of liners have oils in them — so you want to keep an eye on the ingredients.
Finally, certain pens/pencils can tug on your lids, which can also lead to lash fall out. So formulas that glide on easily are your best bet. Otherwise, the back-and-forth motion of a stiff pencil can be disastrous.
