Mink eyelash extensions are the most common used false eyelash extension and they are the most expensive on the market. Although they come in strip lashes and are applied when needed.
The invention and use of false eyelashes began in 1916 when director D.W. Griffith was making his film Intolerance. He wanted actress Seena Owen to have lashes "that brushed her cheeks, to make her eyes shine larger than life."
The first false eyelashes were made of human hair woven through fine gauze by a local wig maker. They were then attached to Owen's eyes. This was the genesis of how eyelash extension was invented as fashion accessory and ever since people have been wearing them.
But in recent times the use of eyelash extensions has seen an unprecedented development where several types of extensions like mink which have become popular because of the natural look it adds to peoples eyes.
Celebrities are heavy users of mink eyelash extensions and the reason is because it makes their eyeballs stand out and beautiful. Mink lashes are not made from artificial materials such as fibers but they are brushed and collected from the fur of a mink which explains the softness and natural characteristics it exhibit when applied to the face.
To purchase mink lashes you will have to shell out between $100 to $300 and it might cost as high as $500 in some salon because application and retouch fee are added to them. If taken care properly it might take 4 weeks before you come in to replace the fallen ones, it falls off because they are glued to your natural eyelashes and the moment your natural eyelash falls off the mink lash goes along with it.
