History of Lashes
Eyelashes became popular from the time around 1950s-1960s and the materials that were involved in its making included fibers, human hairs, and synthetic fibers. With several types of false eyelashes found in the market, it is very difficult to choose which is the right one for you and certainly it’s a bit difficult for you to narrow down your criteria and choices at the same time.
Synthetic vs Mink lashes
Synthetic eyelashes are made up of synthetic materials or plastics so the eyelashes will be much stiffer and over-weight and eventually make them harder to use it. Due to its synthetic fiber, it makes them look thicker as well. On the other hand, mink eyelashes are soft and make them look more natural when used.
What are mink lashes and what is it made of?
Mink eyelashes are made up of mink fur and it has certain advantages as well. The mink eyelashes are more natural, fluffy and lighter at the same time. Due to its light weight and higher quality of lashes, it can be reused after one use also, up to 25 times if well taken care of.

Can I apply mascara onto my minks?
We do not recommend using mascara on your minks as this can clump them and shorten their lifespan. However, we do recommend using mascara on your natural lashes before putting on your minks.
Should I use tweezers or my fingers to apply my minks?
It’s up to you babe, use whatever gives you the best control. Just make sure to get the lashes as close to the lash line as possible for a more natural discreet effect.
How to care for your lashes
Gently peel off the mink starting at the outer corner, pulling the lash towards the inner corner. Repeat this process with the other eye. Gently remove any residual adhesive from the base of your mink with tweezers. DO NOT get your minks wet. Store them back in the tray in a cool dry place.

Disclaimer: Lash suppliers boast that their mink lashes are cruelty free because they don’t kill and skin the Mink when they harvest the fur, they brush them “gently” or shave their tails. These so-called cruelty free lashes are harvested from the same Mink that live in the same sad conditions as the ones that are killed and skinned. The same Mink that have never felt grass under their feet or seen real sunlight. Our company does the right thing. We pay for Mink pelts that are shed naturally during their seasonal shed and zoo keepers collect the pelts without disturbing them.
