it will go down. If it’s really bothering you, a compress of cold, full-fat milk usually helps ease the inflamation as well 🙂

Don’t scratch. If it’s your eyelids that are swollen, it’s likely that you are allergic to the glue used with eye lash extensions. My mom does that ‘Xtreme lashes’ professionally and she had to switch glue for some clients. Also, that glue expires so make sure they use stuff that isn’t expired.

@Khalessi3:  if they get any worse or don’t go done in 24 hours its probably the eyelash glue and you may have to get them removed. I really hope that this is not the case. 

Cucumber works well to:)

When did you get them waxed, just today??  Is it your actual eye lids, or the part where your eyebrows got waxed. My eyebrows are usually a little more swollen for the day that I get them done, by the next day its fine.

Go to your doctor if it doesnt start going down within a day. You could be having an allergic reaction or could have gotten an infection from the wax. Also, if they used latex lash glue you could be reacting to that. Or, they may have burned or otherwise injured you. Maybe pop an antihistamine and an an advil and see how it goes. Good luck!

If it is your eyebrows by where they waxed them – this happens to me every single time I wax my eyebrows.

I wash my face with cold water. Then apply aloe to my eye lids. If they are itching very bad, I’ll put an ice cube wrapped in paper towel on them too.

It should go down in a day or so.

If it doesn’t though, I would see a doctor to make sure it isn’t an allergic reaction or something with the eye lash glue.

Cold compresses!!  Don’t panic — the tissue around the eyes is very prone to swelling and cold will help reduce the swelling more quickly.

I’ve been waxing my browns for yeeeeears, and I still get swollen and red every. single. time. It goes away after a few hours for me, but I have friends who stay puffy for a day or so. Using a cold compress helps, and so does aloe. Hope this helps!!
