Mascara can be the perfect finishing touch to any makeup look, adding the perfect amount of volume and length to the lashes while also defining them. With so many mascaras on the market, you may have noticed that some mascaras list their formulas as being oil-free or water-based. For anyone with sensitive eyes (or eyelash extensions that require extra care), the former can be a game changer.
Here’s the scoop. Oil breaks down and dissolves the adhesive used for eyelash extensions, making them last for a shorter amount of time. For anyone with sensitive eyes, mascaras with oil can cause also irritation. If you have sensitive eyes or eyelash extensions, problems can be avoided by incorporating an oil-free mascara into your makeup routine.
A good oil-free mascara will give your lashes all the length and volume your heart desires, while also keeping your eyes and eyelashes irritation free.
