There is only one natural material available for eyelash extensions, and that is animal fur. Mink is the most popular fur in use, but there are also sable and fox fur. You may have heard of silk lashes, but they're actually made of synthetic silk. One of the most important questions about mink eyelash extensions is whether or not minks were killed to get their eyelashes.
Mink is not harmed by getting the hair used for mink eyelash extensions. The hair is obtained by brushing the mink's tail. Like human hair, some hair always comes out on the brush. With the many varieties of eyelash extensions available on the market, it can be confusing to choose the right eyelashes.
Mink eyelash extensions are the most popular types of eyelashes used by eyelash artists today. They are made with a synthetic material called PBT. What makes PBT the best choice for eyelash extensions is that it doesn't deform for a long time after processing and has an excellent shape. In addition to this, it has phenomenal resistance to heat and chemicals.
In Australia and other countries, mink eyelashes have become popular. They are mink skins that have been shaved off the body of a mink (either just before or immediately after the animal is killed on a fur farm) that are then glued in tufts to a human's eyelashes to achieve a “fuller and thicker look”. Mink lashes are ideal for creating a set of lashes with impressive volume. Its round base makes it easy to move and deploy the tab fans.
This flat shape allows eyelash extensions to truly adapt to natural lashes, allowing for longer retention than mink lashes. Generally speaking, mink lashes cost more than other types of eyelash extensions and aren't as thick, long, or dramatic. Although some eyelash strips may come from human hair, they are not made to create eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions allow you to feel fabulous without much effort, even when you wake up early in the morning.
By adding mink lashes to the lower lash line, you can get more definition and make your eyes look wider. Synthetic mink lashes are made from synthetic materials, but are designed to mimic the look and feel of mink. If you buy a mink fur coat or a set of mink lashes, you're supporting an industry where animals suffer immense fear, stress, diseases, parasites and other physical and psychological difficulties. All eyelash extensions derived from animal hair or hair undergo ultraviolet sterilization procedures before becoming eyelashes.
In addition to the obvious benefit of treating animals more humanely, synthetic mink may have other advantages. They're not for everyone, but real mink lashes are best for customers looking for an incredibly natural look. This confused me a bit when my favorite eyelash extension brand, London Lash Pro, changed its packaging from plastic to cardboard and, at the same time, without notifying its customers, changed the finish of silk and mink, which means that their silk lashes are less shiny than mink lashes.
