If you’re new to lash extensions, you may be wondering which type is the best fit for you. There’s plenty of talk about thickness, length, and especially material, which matters most when you’re aiming for a particular look. Thankfully, lash extensions in Long Island at Royalty Lash Bar can be broken down to three easy-to-understand categories.
Mink: The most premium of all three types of lashes, mink is one of the most highly sought-after materials in the world when it comes to cosmetics. The fur of the mink is lustrous and imitates the look and feel of real human lashes very closely. However, if you’re allergic to animal fur, you might want to steer clear–mink can trigger reactions.
Silk: When you think of silk, you likely think of a sleek scarf or dress. But silk lash extensions aren’t nearly as heavy, though they aren’t as lightweight as other types of lashes. They’re extremely soft, and like real lashes, they’re thicker at the bottom and grow narrower toward the tip.
Synthetic: Synthetic lashes are exactly what they sound like: synthetic extensions made from acrylic materials. Because they’re made from acrylic, they can be a little shiny and somewhat firm in appearance, though this is a plus for many people; you can choose from many different levels of curl to get the exact look you’re after.
