A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that curls your eyelashes upwards without using heat or chemicals. It gives the appearance of wide-awake eyes without the need for mascara. Many people still enjoy defining their lashes with a coat of mascara after their lash lift wears off. Wait 24 hours before applying water-based mascara lightly from roots to tips with a gentle touch to avoid disrupting the lifted curl. Thoroughly remove mascara nightly without tugging lashes to keep them lifted longer between treatments.

Most experts agree it’s fine to wear mascara after the initial 24 hours, as long as you use a water-based formula.
