Are you looking into what kind of eyelash extensions to get? Deciding on which eyelash extension to get can be confusing. Don’t worry, we have your back.
First off, you need to decide on whether to get permanent or temporary lashes. The right choice is the one that fits your needs and wants.
Permanent or temporary lashes?
If you are looking for an extension specifically for an event or something for a short duration, then temporary is the way to go. They are made just to last for a day or two.
These lashes are made from a variety of materials and are used with a specific glue so that they can be easily removed.
They provide an attractive look and are also available in different lengths, thickness and styles. This is the best option if you want to avoid running the risk of mascara flowing down your face throughout the day.
If you are done with finding the perfect mascara and have decided that there is no perfect mascara for you, permanent eyelash extensions are the solution for you. Permanent does not mean life-time. These lashes last for 2-4 weeks and eventually will fallout along with your natural lashes.
It is done through applying a single lash on each natural lash so that you can get a nice natural and full look.
Now that you have decided whether to get permanent or temporary ones, look into the materials they are made up of.
Materials of eyelash extensions
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to choosing materials for the lashes. It depends on the individual’s comfort and style. Here are the most common materials available.
Synthetic lashes are the most common and affordable extensions. They are available in a variety of styles and lengths. However, synthetic lashes fail to give a natural look.
2. Silk Fibers
If you are looking for a bold look, silk fiber is the one for you. These extensions are made from material extracted from silk and are flexible. Silk fibers are often used on people with weak eyelashes. Silk fiber extensions are also affordable and give you a fuller look.
Mink eyelash extensions can give you the most natural look and these also last longer than synthetic and silk extensions. These lashes are made from animal fur- specifically siberian or chinese mink’s tail. The drawback is that it’s quite expensive and requires maintenance. One has to curl it up everytime it gets wet.
4. Faux mink
Faux mink is similar to mink eyelash extensions except it has a shiny finish to it. It’s affordable and requires less maintenance as well. These lashes are best for people who have thinner lashes as faux mink lashes are light weight.
