Tips for Eyelashes Extensions (Part 2)
Q: What is the difference between mink, silk lashes? Which one looks better?
Mink lashes, Silk lashes and real human lashes.
Among all kinds of materials, only 100% mink is closest to the real lashes in composition. Yes you can argue that mink hair feels the closest to real human hair when you wear them. However, there are still some disadvantages of these natural fibers. The length and thickness are hard to control and usually is quite inconsistent. An intelligent lash artist would suggest those don’t use makeup that much to take up artificial lashes. Since it is hard to tell whether the lash is real or artificial by extension by eyes, it would still look natural even without makeup.
Silk Protein Hair, Artificial Fibre Hair, and Artificial Mink Hair
Silk protein hair, artificial fibre hair, and artificial mink hair are made from acrylic fibre. They aren’t made from natural materials despite the name may suggest. These kinds of materials are darker so easier to spot. In terms of the natural look they are just as good. Furthermore, artificial fibre tends to be more flexible.
