Things You Must Know When Wearing Mink Eyelashes For Cosplay

Long, curly, and fluttery lashes make your eyes look more impressive. Unfortunately, every woman does not get dramatically fluttery eyelashes. There is nothing to worry if you are one of them because you can use false eyelash extensions to get the same charm of eyes.

Falsies can play an essential role in improving your charm and beauty. Eyelash extensions were discovered somewhere around 1916. They used to be heavier at that time, but now you can buy light and perfectly shaped eyelash strips for your eyes.

Applying false eyelash extensions is a bit daunting, but maintaining them for several weeks is more daunting. The following tips can help you in keeping the mink falsies intact for at least six weeks.

Learn how to do mink lashes:

  • Do not wear your mink eyelashes directly:

You are applying false lashes to get stunningly lustrous, long, but natural-looking extensions. Some women buy falsies, measure them, and apply them directly. Do not do that because you have to trim the strip to the length of the lash line. Do not let it hang there because it may pull down and fall off. It may also destroy your entire look.

First of all, measure the eyelashes, cut the extra strip, and trim the lashes to the length of your lash line. This is how you will get a perfect length. Always cut your lashes from the outer corner!

  • Apply lash glue:

Here you have to act like a professional. Hold the strip by your weak hand and use your strong hand to spread lash glue evenly across the base of the lash strip. First, apply a tiny amount at the center and then spread it on both sides. The glue should be evenly spread across the length of that mink eyelash strip. Pour minimum glue, spread it evenly, and let it dry for at least 30 seconds. Do not apply the strip directly after spreading glue.

  • Put the real mink eyelash strip over your lash line:

The moment has come to put on that false eyelash extension. Use your tweezers to hold mink eyelash strip from its one corner and place it gently over your lash line. It will go directly above your natural lash line because it will blend into your natural lashes. Set the strip and then squeeze it with your natural lash line.

  • Use mascara:

The final finish comes with a coat of mascara. You may own a pair of beautiful lash strips, but it can look more attractive with a coat of mascara. Thus, you will flawlessly blend your natural and false eyelashes.

How to care for mink strip lashes:

One thing you should always remember that mink lashes are light, durable, and flexible, but you need to take care of them. Negligence can remove them off your eyelids. Therefore, you must learn how to maintain your eyelashes.

Pushing and pulling eyelashes are off the table. Learn to sleep on your back whole night because you will damage your lashes if you sleep on your stomach or sides. Never use a cotton ball to clean the eye makeup when wearing false eyelashes. Experts also follow this rule because you may accidentally pull or twist your mink eyelashes. Use a wipe pad instead to remove eye makeup safely.

Eyelash glue does not dry within a few hours. It takes time to dry and adhere perfectly. Your mink falsies can last up to eight weeks if you take care of above-explained things and use a wet cloth to clean your face and makeup.

How many times can you reuse mink lashes?

It depends on the type of eyelashes you are using. You get faux mink and real mink lashes to choose from. Both are quite durable, but you can wear real mink eyelashes up to 20 times if you take proper care. Faux mink eyelashes are also light and usable up to 15-20 times.

Synthetic lashes are not good enough to be worn multiple times. You can hardly wear them 4-5 times. If you are not buying mink lashes due to their cost, consider how many times you can use them. You will find mink lashes more affordable than cheap synthetic ones if you use them multiple times.
