Ever wondered if all the effort you go to with your fake lashes can last more than just one night? With a name that may be a little deceiving, semi-permanent eyelash extensions are a version of the fake lash that can last up to 2-3 weeks before they fall out due to the natural lash cycle.
Semi-permanent lash extensions provide a beautiful natural look that removes the need for mascara. Read on to learn more about semi-permanent eyelashes, the process of applying them and if they will be suitable for you!
How long do semi-permanent eyelash extensions last and how are they applied?
Semi-permanent lash extensions can last up to around three weeks and require a skilled technician as they involve the application of a single lash to each natural lash with a bonding substance. This is designed to keep the fake eyelashes in place until they naturally fall out.
This provides the benefit of longevity while also ensuring the artificial extensions do not damage your natural lashes.
What are the benefits of semi-permanent false eyelashes?
Semi-permanent lash extensions can save a lot of time as you’ll wake up ready to go with long, gorgeous lashes. There are several other benefits when you have a full set of new lashes as well, including:
- A great way to enhance your eyes
- Suitable for everyone no matter their face shape
- Completely customisable for a natural look or something with a little more length and curl
- Waterproof (with an exception of the first 48 hours) you can swim, shower, and sweat
- A pain-free application
Are semi-permanent eyelashes safe?
When correctly applied by a trained professional, semi-permanent eyelash extensions are very safe. They are a simple way to enhance the look of your natural individual lashes.
However, when incorrectly applied, they can cause discomfort or semi-permanent lash loss. For this reason, you should always choose the safe option and have your natural eyelashes worked on by a professional who uses the correct lash glue and process.

What are the side effects of semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
If incorrectly applied by a DIY method or from an inexperienced operator, the side effects of falsies can include:
- Bloodshot eyes
- Burning and itching
- A rash
- Redness and inflammation on the eye or eyelid
It is important to note that none of the clients at Fancy Lash have experienced these issues due to the skill level of our team. These side effects are very rare and often only a risk when people do not visit a qualified lash technician.
How do you remove semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions will grow out naturally, however, should you wish to remove them sooner you can. Simply dip a cotton ball in coconut or olive oil and gently wipe your upper and lower lash lines. Ensure you do not get any of the oil in your eyes.
The extensions should slide right off your eye and you can use cleansers for a final clean of any remaining glue.
Will my natural eyelashes grow back?
As long as your lash extensions have been applied properly by a professional, they will not ruin your lashes and your natural ones will grow back. Damage to the natural lashes in which they may have issues growing back is often the result of improper application.
This can also be a small risk if extensions that are too heavy for the natural lash are applied. Visiting a properly licensed technician like the ones at Fancy Lash solves this problem and ensures that your lashes remain healthy and happy.
What are some aftercare tips?
To ensure the longevity of your new lashes, do not use an eyelash curler and avoid oil-based cleansers, including makeup removers, facial oils, and oil-serum hybrids, as they may cause the glue to dissolve.
