There is no wrong in applying makeup to enhance your looks if you are the one who desires it. You might as well take it to the next level. False lashes are what is implied by the next stage. You see, of course, it is not cool to be plastic but enhancing your a bit would not do much harm. However, if you like your make up kit and take this kind of stuff seriously then it would be no news to you that there are different kinds of lashes present in the markets. But how do you know that the ones you buy are the right ones, or how do you know which one would look more natural because makeup, when others can tell that you are wearing it, is no makeup at all. Do all these questions scare you now, making you think if you made the right choice about them? Well, do not be worried. This article brings to you the details of the two primary kinds of fake eyelashes- synthetic and the natural ones made from mink fur. So scroll down and read along to understand your choice.
What are mink lashes?
Mink lashes are false lashes that are made from the fur of the animal named mink. They owe their popularity to their soft and smooth texture and their immensely natural look. They are even lighter to carry and can be worn at any occasion as they do not stand out or reflect light, unlike the synthetic ones. The price, however, depends on the brand that makes them but is usually high and not without good reasons. They are quite durable as well provided that you do not maltreat them.
Moreover, if you want your lashes to be voluminous then this is just your choice. They are even found in 3D lashes which consist of a short and long length of hair, thus giving an illusion of added volume to your lashes.
What are silk lashes?
Truth be told raw, most of the silk lashes you purchase are not a hundred percent silk in the first place. For instance, the one you bought from a local store in most probabilities is not made from silk. Silk too to an extent is soft and smooth, but these synthetic based products make the lashes stand upright, cannot hold the curl for long, reflect light that makes them look shiny and unnatural, and most importantly are quite prone to wear and tear. Now depending on how you are going to use them or for what purpose, it is advisable that you first research about it extensively as which brand or which store sells hundred percent genuine silk lashes and not synthetic ones. The ones which are silk lashes are quite similar to the mink ones; rather have an added advantage of being cheaper than them.
How do the two kinds of lashes differ and which is better?
Firstly, it highly depends on the brand which you are buying. Different brands have different specialties. It may be so that the brand that makes gorgeous silk lashes are not really up to the mark in terms of their mink lashes even though they are meant to be more natural and such. Or it can be vice versa as well. However, from a more general point of view, the mink lashes would be a better choice. They are after all made from real fur, and if they are not then that too can be felt just by touching them. So if you want to get a voluminous look that would yet look natural then this is your go-to.
Yes, of course, it is a bit expensive but you need to lose something to gain something. Now the silk ones are cheaper but the probability of them being fake and synthetic-based is much more. Moreover, they reflect light and hence look shiny and not at all-natural. Moreover, they are not as well known to add much volume to your lashes as they are quite stiff. However, the need is yours and hence you would know the best as to which one would serve your purpose better. The article just lays down facts and hints for you.
The bottom line hence remains that no matter which type of lashes you opt for there are bound to be one drawback or the other, more or less. Moreover, generally speaking, while there are merits and demerits to every kind of product, in this case, eyelashes, there are three things that you must keep in mind while buying them- the quality, the material and of course their price.
