Wondering if it’s safe to get a spray tan if you’ve got eyelash extensions on?
The answer is yes, you can get spray tans with eyelash extensions.
Something to consider is that you won’t be able to shower for 24 hours after the eyelash extensions have been applied. So this could affect your tanning schedule if you’ve got an upcoming event.
At The Lash Spa, we recommend having your spray tan applied and washed off prior to your lash appointment.
Some tanning solutions contain oils which could affect the bond of your eyelash extensions and natural lashes (oil = the enemy of lash extensions).
If you’re investing in eyelash extensions, you should be doing everything in your power to keep them looking perfect.
Some tanning solutions are able to be showered after only 30 mins to 2 hours. I recommend opting for one of these tanning solutions and having the tan applied the day prior or morning of your lash appointment. That gives you plenty of time to wash the solution off before we apply any lashes.
It’s also wise to wash your hair before the lash appointment too if you’ve got an event. Remember you can’t expose the eyelash extensions to any water or moisture (including steam) for 24 hours so better to be safe than sorry and go for your appointment with clean hair. You also shouldn’t just have a shower while trying to avoid getting your lashes wet, because the steam can still cause the ill effects!
Help, I’ve already got eyelash extensions on and I want to get a spray tan. What should I do?
If you’re reading this article through long, pretty lashes but want to get a spray tan – never fear…it is still possible.
Ask the spray tan technician to avoid your eye area. You could do this by holding two makeup rounds over your eyes as they spray the face.
You could also avoid having your face sprayed altogether. I prefer to hold the makeup rounds as I do like to have some tan on my face.
To summarise, if you want to get a spray tan and you have eyelash extensions then go for it! Make sure you follow our advice and your lashes will be totally fine!
