Type of False Eyelashes


The most basic classification nowadays for false eyelashes are individual lashes vs full set of lashes. Individual lashes, invented not long ago, are now the trend to provide a more natural look. They can replace only the lacking areas on the real lash, or stuck onto the outer rim to create more fullness. However, for more glamorous and exotic looks, or for convenience, sometimes full set lashes are more useful.

Full set lashes can be trimmed to your liking or preferred looks. So the same full set lash can have a very different look. They can be quite long in width for trimming, while some are shorter in width and more curved for smaller eyes.

Full set lashes can be short, or evenly uneven as to look natural. Alternatively they can be excessively long or colorful for a glamorous or dramatic effects. Some lashes are studded with Rhinestones to create a subtle glitter when done just right.
