If you don’t naturally have long, thick lashes, the good news is that there are lots of options to give you a beautiful, natural-looking or even a dramatic eyelash look. One popular type of lash extensions service is the application of Mink lashes. A big fan of this type of lash extensions is superstar Beyoncé. Her makeup artist Wei Lang told The Cut, “I always use Mink lashes on her. They look amazing. I use strips by Velour called ‘Are Those Real?’ and I got her really into it, so she buys them by the ton.” Read on to find out more about this celebrity tested, Beyoncé-approved beauty technique.
Mink lash extensions often come from the Siberian Mink, a dark-colored semi-aquatic animal. The Mink’s fur makes for luxurious, natural-looking and comfortably lightweight lashes. Mink fur also takes on a nice curl to help it blend in easily with your real eyelashes.
Lash extensions are a great solution for achieving a gorgeous look every day without having to apply tons of makeup. While they do require the proper maintenance to appear their best, the lash extensions are sure to get you lots of compliments.
Be sure to find the right trained esthetician or lash artist to apply your lashes. Your tech’s proper education and certification are key to achieving great results and for your eye health. Many lash artists have portfolios that you can check out before you choose to book a service. For example, Mobile Styles, the on-demand beauty app provides a portfolio section where you can browse the work of all the beauty pros listed in the app. With just a tap of taps of a button, you can find a talented lash artist and make an appointment. The best part of the Mobile Styles app is that your lash artist will come to you so that you can enjoy your service in the privacy of your own home.
Now that you’ve found a lash artist, what can you expect of the service? The process usually takes about 2 hours for the first application. After that, you should maintain your lashes with appointments every 3-4 weeks. The tech applies the lashes while you are comfortably relaxed on a bed.
Be sure to ask your lash artist for aftercare instructions! This may include avoiding water for the first 24 hours and avoiding certain mascaras.
