CAN YOU APPLY STRIP LASHES OVER MINK LASHES ?
3D Mink Lashes
Mink Lashes are sustainable way to attain the fullness of strip lashes without the damage, and have converted many falsie-
wearers to the good news of everlasting density—provided they get regular fills. Aside from providing wearers the
dramatic curl, color, and length of strip lashes, 3D Mink Eyelashes when applied by a skilled artist, lash extensions do not
cause any harm to the natural lash line.
But some habits won’t go down without a fight. And on occasion—even with a set of perfectly-tapered silk classics—your
strip lashes call out to you with the promise of a bangin’ night out. For old-time’s sake. So we decided to find out once and
for all if classic lashes are up for the challenge. A couple weeks ago The Mink Lashes SHOP applied falsies on top of my
classic lash set, and this is what happened.

Mink Lashes SHOP applied the strip lashes perfectly—he is a professional, after all. If I had to put on my
own falsies, my corneas would likely be recovering and this post would be in the trash. (Thankfully, my eyes are in tip top shape, and I have
600 words to prove it.) Calvin, who has applied false lashes over classic lashes before, says the key to a safe application is
using the right amount of adhesive. “If you use too much glue, it can seep into the lashes,” he says. So paint the strip
lightly, and apply it to the lid as close to the natural lashes as you can without actually touching them. To hide any gap
between natural lashes and falsies, use an extension-safe eyeliner to create a smudgey effect. Finally, use a clean spoolie
to brush the strip lashes and extensions together for a seamless set.
Now, for the tricky part: the removal. This went slightly less perfectly than the application. Though about as good as you
could hope for.
I lost two natural lashes.
I’m aware two lashes is not a big deal—they were probably ready to shed anyway. But if you were considering introducing
strip lashes back into your beauty routine in any kind of regular way, losing two Mink Lashes every time you peel them off
should concern you.
In our online web series, Mink Lashes SHOP talks about her experience wearing false lashes every day—and more
importantly, how taking them off resulted in gaps in her natural lash line. For extension-wearers who have spent time,
money, and energy to keep your lashes looking amazing between fills, risking the health of Mink Lashes—not to mention
your natural lashes—is likely not something you want to make a habit of.
For me, losing those Mink Lashes SHOP was enough to put my falsies away. I’m a big supporter of natural lash health, and
intend to keep every Mink Lashes SHOP alive until it’s ready for lash heaven. Plus, my classic sets already double the
fullness of my lash line and boost my length. So if you’re OK with losing a lash or two and opt for strip lashes on the
occasional evening out, you won’t be ostracized—and your lashes will likely be OK. But keep your relationship with falsies
casual, definitely avoid using them more than once per fill, and remember that natural lash Mink Lashes SHOP health is
