Mink eyelashes look more natural and are extremely lightweight. They are more matte than silk lashes. The Mink is aquired by carefully brushing and collecting the hair. The best mink lashes are siberian mink lashes.
The only downsides to mink lashes are that they may lose their curl as time passes ( a heated lash curler can remedy this) and if you are allergic to animal hair, you may experience an allergic reaction to the mink hair.
Silk lashes are thicker at the bottom and thinner at the top. They are made to look more glossy and full. With these types of lashes, you can sleep with them, swim, sunbathe and play sports. These lashes require very little maintenance and allow you to continue with your daily activities without worrying about them falling out. Lashes done by a professional can last anytwhere from 3-6 weeks, depending on the life cycle of your natural lashes.
You you are looking for the mascara look with glossy, long eyelashes - silk eyelashes are the way to go.
Wetting lashes less than 24hrs after your lash appointment, changes in hormone levels, increased stress, seasonal allergies, crying, prescription medications, waterproof mascara, gel eyeliners, makeup containing ils, excessive rubbing of eyes, washing face and lashes with cleansers containing glycol and/or oil, rubbing face with towel or washcloth and sleeping on your face may decrease the life of your lash extensions.
Please follow all after care instructions and only use makeup and cleansers formulated for lash extensions.
