Fake lash extensions are a popular cosmetic application utilized to improve the volume, curl, length, and consistency of naturally thinning eyelashes. The lashes are usually manufactured from various synthetic materials such as synthetic, mink, human hair, or synthetic horsehair. These synthetic lashes are applied to eyelashes that have been naturally thinned. A false lash is a false eyelash designed to look like a natural eyelash.
There are two types of false lashes. One type is composed of a protein composite material known as Polyethylene; this composite material provides a realistic appearance and is safe for application to human skin. The second type consists of hairspray and glue. The glue is supplied in small individual strips and is applied to each eyelash individually. Typically the glue is applied on both sides of the lash and allowed to dry before removing the false lashes with tweezers.
The most common use of fake eyelashes is to lengthen lashes that have become thinner over time. There are many manufacturers of false eyelashes that offer different extensions ranging from short to long. The common extensions purchased online are available in different lengths ranging from a few inches to several feet. False lashes also come in different colors; black, brown, green, blue and pink are the most popular colors.
Not only is wearing fake lashes a fashion statement, it can prevent serious eye injuries. Long periods of staring at computer monitors or using computers or phones with the eyes closed can lead to eye injuries such as “cataract” and “iscopic”. Long periods of staring at a computer screen or phone can even lead to “optic migraine” which is a condition where the eyes become extremely painful and may even cause tears to flow down the face. Long periods of staring at computer screens can also cause micro-ophthalmic abrasion which results in scarring, blurred vision and headaches. Furthermore, prolonged staring at a computer screen or phone can lead to age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Furthermore, people who are regularly outdoors and often come into contact with chemicals such as paint, hair dyes and solvents may suffer from allergic reactions such as eye irritation, redness, blisters and itching. Repeated exposure to chemicals such as the ones found in house cleaning solutions and hairspray can lead to severe eye irritation and skin irritations. If these chemicals are inhaled, they can lead to serious eye problems such as coughing, wheezing and swelling of the face and eyes. These reactions to chemicals are not caused by fake eyelashes but a much more serious eye problem called “allergic reactions”.
Fake lashes do not last for long; after about a week your lash line will begin to sag and wrinkle. The color of your lashes will change over time as well. The most common colors for the fake lash wearers are white, silver and black. In addition to changing the color the texture and the thickness will change too. Fake lashes can also be thin and brittle, breaking easily when applied.
Mink makeup is known for its luxurious feeling and soft feel. Mink eye makeup can be described as being like the fur of a cat. This type of mascara adds extra body and fullness to your eyes while offering a natural look to your lashes. It is thick, one-coated lashes that are ideal for nights out on the town. Mink fake eyelashes are often used to give a smoky eye to those who want to look glamorous and stylish without adding any volume or length to their eyelashes.
Make sure you wash your hands before touching the eyes to avoid causing any infections to your eyelids. Do not touch the eyes directly, as this could cause severe pain. Once the glue used in the application has dried you can use your false lash for an evening out or an everyday look. Glue used should be clean and not scented or colored. Once you have removed your false lash you can apply mascara to create a look that suits your entire face.
