With that being said, this article will go over all the main types of eyelash extensions prevalent in the market, we’ll also go over their pros and cons so that you can choose the one that suits you best;
Sable lashes as the name suggests are made from the fur of the Sable which is an animal present in parts of Russia. These lashes appear very natural and are extremely thin. These types of lashes are usually used by individuals that prefer lashes that are lightweight lashes and fans of the light natural look. Something to note,a common issue faced is that for some people they can be detrimental to allergies so it is imperative to ensure that you are not allergic before wearing. The lashes are not vegan as they are made from animal fur.
Mink lashes are made from mink(animal present in Serbian and Chinese regions) fur. They are organic but not vegan. Beginners are always advised to start their eyelash extensions journey with mink lashes as they are lightweight and fluffy. They give a very natural look as well. A downside of them is that they are on the expensive side.
Faux Mink Lashes
Faux lashes are man made lashes and are made up of synthetic materials. They are
significantly cheaper than natural mink lashes. These give a glossy look and are very thin but
they don't look as natural as mink lashes. Due to their synthetic nature they are recommended
for vegans and individuals with animal allergies that want thin eyelashes.
Silk lashes are man made, made from synthetic fibres. They have a medium thickness and are suitable if you want to add some drama to your look. They are thicker at base and become thin as you go up towards the ends. One of the main benefits of these lashes is that they require less maintenance and are cheaper than other types of lashes.
These are made from synthetic material and are fur free. Synthetic lashes are the most thick
type of eyelashes and are suitable for bold looks. As they are very thick and full you don't need to use mascara with them. Being synthetic they are cheap and allergy free. One main con about these lashes is that they are heavy and some individuals are unable to wear them fo long periods of time.
Bonus Tip:- Avoid using mascara on your lashes as the oils present in them tend to deteriorate the quality of the eye lashes.
