Lash Sealants: Why They’re Important + How to Properly Apply

Lash Sealants: Why They’re Important + How to Properly Apply

Protecting Sealer, lash care product, from The Lash Lounge

To prolong the life of your eyelash extensions and protect the beautiful investment you’ve made, using a lash sealant is a must!

Get the scoop on why and when we recommend using a lash sealant, then see our Corporate Stylist Trainer Shelley demonstrate the proper way to apply this go-to product to your lash line.

Why Using a Lash Sealant is Important

When you love something, you want to protect it, right? The same is true when it comes to your beloved lash line and extensions.

Using a lash sealant is important because:

  • It provides an extra layer of protection for your natural lashes.
  • It extends the life of the adhesive, locking the extension in place for a longer period of time (ideal for keeping your lash line looking its best between your biweekly refill appointments).

When to Use a Lash Sealant

Using a lash sealant is a good idea year-round, but especially during the shedding seasons: spring and fall.

This extra layer of protection is also ideal when your lashes are exposed to extra moisture from things like:

  • High humidity
  • Sweat (from exercise or an active lifestyle)
  • Swimming
  • Oily skin

Since a sealant is primarily for maintenance, you will want to wait about a week after your full set or refill appointment to apply it.

Black Diamond and Protecting Sealants From The Lash Lounge

We have two fantastic eyelash sealers available to purchase at The lash Lounge, each with a little something special each her own.

Protecting Sealer: Used twice a week only, this clear sealant is ideal for those with active lifestyles, anyone living in a high humidity area and people with oily skin.

Black Diamond Sealant: Since this sealant is water-based, it can be applied daily. It not only extends the life of your extensions, but it also adds a lovely, dark sheen to your lash line thanks to the subtle tint in the product itself.

The Proper Way to Apply a Lash Sealer

Both of our lash sealants are simple to apply. Take it from Shelley in the video below!

The 4-Step Lash Sealant Application Process

Let’s review!

1. Once you have pulled the brush from the tube, get any excess product off the brush by sliding the brush along the opening of the tube.

2. You only need a light amount of product on the brush. (Like Shelley said, a little goes a long way!)

3. Place the brush along the top of your lash line, as you see pictured in the first photo on the left. Then, simply graze the brush along the bonded area where your lashes and lash line meet.

4. For those with extra voluminous eyelash extensions, another sweep along the under area of your lash line can be applied. (Pictured in the second photo on the left.) When doing this, lightly dab the brush under your lash line.

Tips for Applying our Black Diamond Sealant

Since it’s tinted, our Black Diamond Sealant may require a little bit more focus. Here are some tips and tricks when it’s time to apply!

  • Remove the brush from the tube and notice that it looks like a mascara wand.
  • The correct way to apply: Tap the brush against the underneath part of the base of your lashes, as you see pictured in the first photo on the right.
  • The incorrect way to apply: Do not comb the brush through your lash line like you would when using mascara. Doing this, especially after applying eyeshadow and having residue on your lashes, can close the fans of your lashes off—particularly for those with volume extensions.
  • After applying correctly underneath the base of your lashes, take your brush and tap along the base of the top of your lash line. (Pictured in the second photo on the right.)
