All You Need to Know About 3D Mink Lashes

Just like a hairstyle that matches your face shape, or a dress that particularly accentuates your body type, you also need to experiment with different eyelash styles that can enhance your natural eye shape. One of the most glamorous lashes on the market tends to be 3D mink lashes. From celebrities and influencers to ordinary people, the obsession with 3D mink lashes has grown tenfold in the last few years. 3D mink lashes are very beautiful, somewhat dimensional, with fluffy layered ends.


What are 3D Mink Lashes?

3D mink eyelashes, as the name suggests, are eyelash extensions made from mink fur. The 3D mink lashes are manufactured by brushing off the natural hair and placing the treated strands on a strip. Regular mink eyelashes have one strand over another along the strip, whereas 3D mink eyelashes have multiple strands and layers grouped at a single point and fanned out, to give a voluminous and dimensional look that is appreciated in the beauty industries for decades. 3D mink lashes have quickly become the "go-to" lash for many makeup artists and beauty gurus as well as the general public.

They are super lightweight and they give a natural yet flawless look easily. They are seen as flexible and comfortable and also the number of uses one can get out of them tends to usually be higher than other types of lashes. Another bonus tends to be that most 3D Mink Lashes are hypoallergenic because they are sterilized during the manufacturing process.

Owing to their high quality, they are reusable 20-25 times, however this is only possible with proper care. In order to be able to properly care for your false mink lashes, you'll need to know how to apply them and remove them properly to make sure quality is not compromised. Curious enough? Let’s dive in!


STEP ONE: Trim lashes to fit your eyelids!

All of us are born with different eye-shapes and that means not every pair of lashes are going to be the right fit for your eyes when they come straight out of the box. Some of us have bigger eyes so that means no trimming is necessary, but for people with smaller eyes, you will need to give your lashes a little trim. All you need to do is hold the lash against your eyelid and trim off the excess from the outer edge. To avoid ruining your favorite pair of 3D Mink Eyelashes, practicing on a cheaper set of falsies would be a great idea.

STEP TWO: Apply lash-glue generously over the band.

We know how hard it is to wait before you can actually go out and flaunt that full-glam look to the world. Once you have applied a thin layer of adhesive to the band, let it sit for about 30 seconds before applying it over the eyelids. The glue should not be wet, but just tacky and sticky. Tap your finger over the glue to make sure the consistency is just right.

STEP THREE: Look downwards into your mirror.

You need to get the lash band as close to the lash line as possible without it getting tangled up in your actual lashes. This way your eyelid will extend, almost like you are closing your eyes and give you more space so you can apply your set of 3D mink lashes perfectly.

STEP FOUR: Camouflage the band.

Once you have applied your favorite pair of 3D mink lashes over your eyelashes neatly, it is time to finally apply eyeliner across the lash line to make sure the eyelash band is properly disguised and your eyes, accentuated and glamorous.
