Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Can a woman get eyelash extensions if it is not water-resistant? Would water still be able to touch the skin of eyelids and lashes?

One of the conditions of a valid wuḍū’ is that water must unrestrictedly touch all parts of the face; from our knowledge, eyelash extensions will hinder water reaching that part of the skin, hence wudū’ whilst wearing them will not be permissible. As for the permissibility of wearing eyelash extensions, please see here- http://daruliftabirmingham.co.uk/are-fake-eyelashes-permissible/
Only Allah SWT alone knows best.
