No problem

Hi there-

There should be not problem using mascara while on Latisse. It will not reduce the effectiveness of the Latisse, or increase the risks, and will accentuate the outcome from the product.

Enjoy your new lashes!

Yes, you can use mascara and other eye makeup products while using Latisse. The important thing to remember, however, is to clean your eye makeup off thoroughly before you apply Latisse nightly before you go to bed.

Absolutely! Mascara will not inhibit the growth of your lashes while using Latisse. As you continue to use the product you may even find yourself using mascara less, or if you use it as you have been previously it will most likely enhance the look of your lashes!

Mascara While On Latisse?

Yes it is still safe to use mascara while you are using Latisse. Latisse is meant to be applied once a day at night, so applying make-up in the morning or daytime is okay. There is no harm in applying mascara or any kind of eyeliner to eyes; it will only call attention to how long and full they are getting! “Dr. D”

Latisse and mascara

Yes, you can still wear mascara if you use Latisse.  Latisse is indicated for hypotrichosis of the upper lashes, one of its 'side effects' is that it causes darkening of the lashes...what woman would not love that!!!  But most still want to show off their new lashes with mascara and it is completely safe.

Using mascara while using Latisse

Of course you can. Most individuals apply Latisse at night on a cleanly washed face. But if for some reason if you apply Latisse in the morning before applying make up, make sure you wait at least 10 minutes to allow the product to dry.

Okay to use mascara during Latisse

Latisse is indicated for hypotrichosis of the lower eyelashes. It is applied once daily to the area, and results are seen in as little as 8 weeks.  It is acceptable to use mascara on the eyelashes during treatment.
