Is pre-treatment lash advice important?

Is pre-treatment lash advice important?

YES! If pre-treatment advice isn’t followed, it could affect the result and longevity of your lash treatment. And who wants that? Not us! Although, we do know what it’s like to book a lash appointment straight after work, forgetting your lash technician’s advice to not wear mascara or use oily products on the day of your treatment. If you usually wear eye makeup, this could be a dilemma. Leading you to think ‘Surely mascara won’t affect the treatment *that* much?!’ It’s important to know, your lash technician isn’t providing the pre-treatment advice for their benefit.

Nouveau Lashes pre-treatment advice is…

24 hours prior to treatment

  • Do not wear water-proof mascara
  • If you have had a spray tan, ensure guide colour is washed off

On the Day of treatment

  • Do not wear mascara
  • Do not have a spray tan
  • Avoid applying oily products on your lashes or around your eyes
  • Contact lenses must be removed prior to the treatment, for this reason we recommend glasses are worn

We share this advice to ensure all Nouveau Lashes’ clients get the best results possible.

Positives of following the pre-treatment advice

It can reduce treatment time. Applying water-proof mascara will lengthen the cleansing process for your lash technician, as they’re unable to use oil-based eye makeup remover – adding to the total treatment time.

It can help the longevity of the lash treatment results. Eyelashes kept in their natural and bare state 24 hour prior to a treatment will achieve better results, as there is no residue interfering with the treatment products.


If you don’t want to go eye make-up free at work, why not book a weekend morning lash appointment instead? That way you can nip straight to the salon. But we’re all about self-confidence! So, break the mould. Chances are everyone will admire your fresh-faced beauty. You go girl.
