Different Types of Strip Lashes
With the popularity of strip lashes bigger than ever before, the range of different types of strip lashes available is truly impressive, and here at FalseEyelashes.co.uk we offer over 2000 styles of false eyelashes to cater to every single individual's needs. Ranging from mink lash styles, brown lashes, 3D designs as well as lashes made from synthetic fibres, depending on what you desire, we are sure to have a lash style for you.
What Are Strip Lashes?
To put it plainly, strip lashes look the most like your natural eyelashes. They're a strip of lash hairs or strands, usually around 3-4 cm wide. The strip is then applied on top of your natural lashes - and voilà, your lash look is enhanced in a matter of seconds.
For those wondering what are strip lashes, it can be helpful to explore other lash styles as a means of comparison. Other types of lashes include individual lashes and flare lashes. If you want to get super technical, then there's also accent lashes, magnetic lashes and more.
What Are Eyelashes Made Of?
We stock lashes made by various lash brands from a variety of materials. Some brands specialise in human hair strip lashes, while other brands focus on completely synthetic lashes. In the past, some brands have even made lashes from mink hair, horse hair and more (of course we do not stock these, but we wanted to give you the full picture!)
Next time someone asks you what eyelashes are made of, you can tell them that most high street brands now focus on synthetic hair and fibres.
Great Value Strip Lashes
All of our different fake lash styles also vary in price, meaning you can easily select a style that not only suits you, but also suits your budget. If you are struggling to decide which lashes are best for you, or are hoping to try out a new lash style, then we have a selection of options for you to choose from, all ranging in appearance, quality and price. You'll find all types of lashes here on our website, at unbeatable prices!
3D Strip Lashes
If you prefer a dramatic look from your lashes, then 3D strip lashes are the perfect option for you. Available from a range of top-selling brands, 3D lashes have been expertly designed with a double-layered look for optimal volume and intensity. Their bold, dimensional appearance is ideal for achieving a stand-out finish and is the best way to add heavy density that works to open and enhance your eyes.
There are a range of different 3D lash styles made from different materials, each providing a slightly different effect. For a full yet natural-looking texture opt for 3D mink lashes, or for a heavy, dense enhancement select a synthetic or human hairstyle. Some of our favourite 3D fake eyelashes are:
- Lilly Lashes 3D Mink Miami – full, fluffy and multidimensional
- Violet Voss Vamptress – triple stacked for incredible 3 dimensional effect
- Ardell Mega Volume 250 – ultra-curled and full of volume for high impact
Known and loved for creating a soft, fluffy texture; mink lashes are one of the top lash choices for providing luxury as well as a flawless blend. Made from silky, high quality mink hairs, mink lashes look extremely natural due to their unbeatable curl and delicate appearance.
Each lightweight lash strand is carefully layered to mimic the appearance of natural lashes, but with enhanced volume, length, and texture. They often provide a full, wispy finish that is unique in comparison to other types of false lashes. Although mink lashes offer premium quality, they also require extra care when handling, as they are a lot more delicate in comparison to lashes made from synthetic fibres or human hair. Our top mink lash choices are:
- Lilly Lashes Mykonos – dramatic, three-dimensional design
- Unicorn Cosmetics Rebel Smoke – ultra-flared to elongate the eye
- Doll Beauty Gilly – full, flared and medium in length
We no longer stock mink eyelash strips here at FalseEyelashes.co.uk. But we are super proud to stock a great range of faux mink lashes, which offer a mink effect with no cruelty.
Faux Mink Lashes
Faux mink lashes are a great alternative to mink lashes that still offer a similar look and feel for a luxurious, full finish. They are ultra-lightweight for a natural appearance, and each faux mink fibre is softly layered to create a delicate, textured effect.
Faux mink lashes are also a slightly more affordable option in comparison to mink lashes, and there are numerous different styles available depending on your preference and budget.
We offer a selection of band-less faux mink styles for a seamless, undetectable blend and we also offer everyday faux mink lash styles that are priced under £10. This cheap price makes them ideal for those on a budget that still want high quality lashes. Some of the best lashes are faux mink, and our top faux mink style suggestions are:
- Ardell Faux Mink Demi Wispies – the perfect subtle, everyday pair
- House of Lashes Posh Noir – ultra fanned out and dramatic
- Lilly Lashes Faux Mink Miami – full, fluffy and luxurious
- Ardell Faux Mink 812 – delicate enough for daytime wear
Silk and faux silk Lashes
Silk or faux silk lashes offer an incredibly lightweight, natural-looking appearance with a similar quality to mink hairs. Their soft, shiny texture allows for a stunning enhancement, and their feather-light look and feel provides the ultimate comfort.
Silk or faux silk lashes offer an incredible realistic looking finish, without being as full or fluffy as mink lash styles.
- Velour Charlotte’s Web – spaced out lash clusters create definition and soft volume
- Dragon Lashes Flammie – criss-crossed appearance and graduated length
- Eylure Luxe Lashes Bauble – increased density at base enhances lash line
- SOSU Luxury Lashes Kendall – ultra-long lash with medium volume
Human Hair Lashes
Many of the more subtle, natural-looking lash styles are made from human hair and are extremely lightweight and comfortable. Human Hair lashes are an affordable option for day to day wear and are also great for beginners due to their fine, flexible lash bands as this makes the application process a little easier.
Not only is there a wide variety of human hair lash styles on our website, but there is also an impressive amount of multipacks that make stocking up on your favourite human hair lash styles easier than ever. Some of our bestselling human hair lashes are:
- Red Cherry #43 (Stevi) – creates an elegant, winged out finish
- Eylure Texture 117 – full, curled and textured appearance
- Ardell Demi Wispies – graduated length and wispy effect
- Fleek Lashes Anastasia – formed into V-shaped clusters for unique lash look
Synthetic lash styles are the perfect pick for achieving a more dramatic and dense lash enhancement. Many synthetic lash styles offer an extreme black finish that is slightly shiny in finish, as well as a thicker lash band for increased definition at the lash line. These types of lashes are generally increasing in popularity as more people engage in mindful beauty - looking for cruelty-free and Vegan-friendly brands to buy. Are synthetic lashes the best strip lashes? We tend to think so!
Synthetic lash styles are suited for completing a heavy makeup look, but they are probably not the best option for those that prefer a lightweight or natural lash design. The following synthetic styles are hugely popular here at FalseEyelashes.co.uk:
- House of Lashes Iconic – extremely dense and dramatic with winged out edges
- Peaches and Cream No.8 – fanned out with a voluminous finish and extreme length
- Flutter Lashes Intoxicating – gradual increase in length and fullness towards each outer corner
- Revlon Beyond Natural Dramatic 3x volume – medium length and volume
And that's a wrap of all our different types of strip lashes!
