When you decide to do eyelash extensions, one of the first things you discover is to choose the material. Eyelash extensions are made of synthetic material, real silk fibers, or real mink fur. Synthetic eyelash extensions come in two types: faux mink or synthetic silk.
Mink lashes are just about the most realistic you can get, because they’re made from actual hair. To be specific, they come from the tail of Siberian or Chinese Minks.And thanks to the fact that they are natural – they look very natural, like your real lashes…except infinitely better. Mink lash extensions are also some of the thinnest lash extensions you can get, which helps them last longer since they can be attached to each of your individual lashes without weighing your natural lashes down.
Faux Mink EyelashesFaux means “imitation.” Faux mink eyelash extensions are more rigid in shape and slightly thicker throughout the eyelash. These extensions have a slight sheen and are slightly glossy for a more dramatic look. They have more bling. Younger clients often choose faux mink eyelash extensions because they are more noticeable. Faux mink eyelash extensions are the most popular type of eyelash extension.
Synthetic silk eyelash extensions have a more flexible curl, giving the lash a softer feel and more natural look for the client. They have a flat or matte black color, making them appear more natural. These extensions are accurate for clients who prefer fuller eyelashes but do no longer favor others to know they have eyelash extensions.
Overall, synthetic lash extensions are a good choice if you just want to test the lash waters before committing to a higher-priced set of lash extensions. They are the most affordable and a great way to see if lash extensions are right for you!
