There are typically three main types of false eyelashes: synthetic lashes which are made with a plastic fibre called PBT, mink fur lashes made out of fur from the tail of a mink and human hair lashes.
Trying to figure out what kind of false lashes to buy can be confusing, as with so many different types available, how are we supposed to know which will work for us? Here, we look at the two main types of false eyelashes, their features and what they are made out of, to help you with your decision.
Synthetic lashes are the most common type of false eyelashes and tend to be a lot thicker in comparison to the natural human lash.

Mink Fur Lashes
Mink lashes are made out of the hair from the tail of a mink, an animal that lives in the wild. These are seen to be the most luxurious lashes on the market because they are handcrafted to match the natural lash and create a feathery look, however they have been the subject of serious controversy, both within the beauty industry and outside it.
