Mink eyelash extensions are long, thin, lightweight and usually come with an individual set of lashes. Real mink eyelashes are generally made from the fine soft fur of the soft pink of the Siberian or Chinese mink; an animal nearly identical to an otter or ferret. The fibers within mink eyelashes, however, come primarily from new synthetic virgin coconut fibers, which are intended to replicate the appearance of natural, human eyelash fibers. While mink eyelashes can be made to appear very similar to natural lashes, they are not quite as full and lush.
Unlike regular mink eyelashes that can be snipped on and off, mink eyelashes require some specialized care. If you have never attempted to tweeze or brush mink fur, you are likely better served to stick with the easier methods. Most of the time, this involves using your index finger and taking long, steady strokes in a circular pattern around each lash. When doing this, try to work from the base of each lashes out to the tips. Be careful not to use too much pressure, as you do not want to pull any of the natural hair out.
One method that is often used for adding volume to mink eyelashes is the volume lash set. These sets consist of two separate sets of lashes, one in the form of a full lashes and one in the form of a semi-permanent curl. They can be found in either black or red. Some people who wear the volume lash set report that the set does give them more defined, thicker lashes. The semi-permanent curl adds a sort of a gray color to the lashes, which some find to be very attractive. Both sets of lashes are easy to remove, so you can just toss them into your favorite eye shadow and eyeshadow palette.
Mink eyelash extensions are usually applied with a set of natural lashes, but there are some who like to add their own. This can easily be done at home, but it may take some practice. The lashes that you use should match the color of the mink lashes that you are using, and they should stick together for an even application. Once the glue has dried and the mink lashes are firmly adhered to the eyelash roots, you can cover them with a white eye liner and mascara to keep them from slipping.
There are also a number of people who like to use mink eyelashes in place of human ones because they are believed to provide a level of sensitivity and warmth to the eyes. Because of this, some who wish to have a synthetic material called Volumese eyelash extensions put them on for special occasions or to wear when outdoors. Others who wear mink lashes to work prefer to use the ones that are made of cotton or a natural fiber, because the synthetic material is less likely to irritate their eyes. Mink lashes are not made from any type of protein, and the protein used in the artificial mink lash product is actually derived from a waste product that is found in chicken and not from a dead mink.
Even though mink eyelashes will last a long time, it is important to take good care of them. The more frequently the mink lashes are washed, the longer they will last. If they are being worn often, especially in warm weather, the hair may become matted and this could lead to the extensions falling out sooner than anticipated. One way to help keep the mink lashes from matting is to brush them every night after you wash them. If they become overly wet, it is best to soak them in a mild shampoo to remove excess water, and then apply conditioner.
If mink eyelashes do not fall out as expected, there is a good chance that the glue used to attach them is being broken, which can cause them to come apart. When mink fur farms use glue to hold the lashes together, the glue is a mixture of metal filings mixed with glue. It has often been said that many of the false eyelash products being sold today contain the glue that was used to attach mink eyelashes to the original animal. Because this glue is often found in these products, mink fur farms are being sued by animal rights activists over the dangers it poses to the animals who live and work for them.
