Not everyone has long or thick lashes naturally. While many women try to remedy a lack of a full lash line by using mascara, this method can lead to that dreaded spider look. A much better alternative is to wear false eyelashes.
But where to start? There are so many different types of false lashes that it can be overwhelming when making your choice. Apart from all of the different styles of false eyelashes available, there are two basic categories we can divide them into. Synthetic eyelashes and mink eyelashes. There are a few other types of false lashes, but these are the two that are most commonly worn.
Most women use synthetic lashes as this is usually what strip lashes consist of. Synthetic lashes can be harmful if your natural eyelashes are fine. It’s best to use synthetic lashes only if your natural eyelashes are quite thick and strong to begin with as they will be able to carry the weight of synthetic lashes much better.
Mink eyelashes are suitable for all lash types, both fine or thick. They also look more natural than synthetic lashes and are a better option for everyday wear. If your lashes are already very full, mink lashes will simply add to this and make them appear fluffier and softer. If you have a very sparse lash line, they will make it look as though you naturally have a full lash line. While mink lashes are more expensive than synthetic lashes, they appear more natural and usually last longer. They are also less likely to damage your natural lashes.
When deciding on what type of lash you should use, think of what you are trying to achieve. Do you want longer eyelashes or do you want your lash line to appear fuller? Different types of false eyelashes will give different effects.
If you’re a bit wary of using false eyelashes there are other options. Many women can’t apply synthetic or mink eyelashes due to allergies or other factors. A great substitute for these falsies would be to use an eyelash extension kit.
Companies like MeaganEllise offer a three-step eyelash extension kit. It functions like a mascara, but adds fibers to your lashes in order to make them appear both longer and fuller. It is also waterproof and will not smudge throughout the day. This specific kit includes Beeswax as an ingredient. This ensures that your natural lashes are kept healthy and it stimulates lash growth. This type of product is also a lot easier to remove than false eyelashes and the removal process won’t damage your natural lashes at all.
An eyelash extension kit should contain a mascara, fiber extensions and a sealant. It could vary from kit to kit, but this is the best combination to ensure long lasting lashes.
Whether you want drama or a more natural look, there’s a type of false eyelash out there for everybody. Even if you have sensitive eyes, you can make your eyelashes look their best.
