Eyelash extensions already do so much to make you look simultaneously enchanting and natural, as well as making your eyes pop. However, the right eyeliner can work with the extensions to elevate your inner and outer beauty to a totally new level. Finding the perfect eyeliner to go with your extensions is crucial to getting the most out of your extensions, as certain formulas can make them fall off faster. As long as you find makeup that is safe with lash extensions, though, eyeliner can be just the thing to make you both appear and feel even more glamorous (if that’s possible).
The best and safest eyeliners to use while you have eyelash extensions on are undoubtedly those without oil. This is because oil works to dissolve the lash glue put in place to maintain the integrity of your extensions. The benefits of oil-free makeup do not stop there, however.
These products are less likely to move around your face, meaning your precise and deliberately placed liner will stay exactly where you want it. Also, water-soluble products (a popular alternative to makeup containing oils) are much easier to remove, meaning you will not have to rub at and potentially harm your lashes.
While many different kinds of eyeliners can work with your extensions, pen liners are especially exquisite for keeping your lash extensions full and gorgeous for as long as possible. They feature a tapered shape and are all about added precision. With this added control, it will take fewer strokes to perfect the line you’re going for, which will let the extensions stay exactly where they were meant to be: on your fabulous face. Anytime I go out with a perfectly sharp wing, there is probably an eyeliner pen somewhere to thank.
Now that you know a few dos and don’ts in the world of false lashes, here are some of the absolute best eyeliners to keep your extensions luxurious and thriving.
