We know first hand that finding the right pair of false lashes can seem like a huge task to complete. So we’ve put together a guide to help you figure out how to differentiate the different types of false eyelashes and what they’re good for, the best fake eyelashes for beginners to try, and how to find the perfect pair of false eyelashes for your eyes. Read on for the full deets!
Different types of false eyelashes
There are two main types of false eyelashes on the market today: Synthetic and Mink. Let’s quickly go over the two types!
What are synthetic lashes?
Synthetic lashes are the most common type of false eyelashes, which are made from plastic man-made fibers. The lashes tend to be a lot thicker in comparison to the natural human lash and are meant to be disposed of after a single use. They also tend to be more affordable in pricing due to the cheaper materials that are used to produce the lashes.
What are mink lashes?
Mink lashes are made from real mink fur, which allows for a light, soft, fluffy look, matching to a similar quality of natural human lashes. Due to the high quality of materials and light weight of the lashes, mink lashes are able to be reused over and over! With Esqido mink lashes, we also use a handcrafted cotton band that is extremely flexible, which makes them super comfortable and easier to apply. The higher quality causes them to be a bit more on the pricier side, however it can be seen as an investment, as you’ll be able to get multiple wears out of each pair.

How to choose the perfect pair
Although there are a ton of different styles to choose from, we have been able to come up with a beginner-proof process for figuring out which style is best for you! Answer these three questions below to quickly get through our online lash guide which leads you to the golden answer: 3 styles of Esqido mink lashes which are perfect for you!
- Knowing your eye type
All of us have such unique and distinguishing eye features, which is what makes it so fun to find the perfect pair of lashes that best compliment your eye shape! Our individual uniqueness is what inspires us to create so many different lash styles for you to choose from. Take a look in the mirror & try to match your eye type to this chart below! Each eye type has a description of what style lashes are best for your eye shape.
- Placement & size of your eye
This step is really important because it determines what length & design of lashes are going to suit your eye type most perfectly. While you are in the mirror, take a look and see where your eyes sit & the general size of your eye. You can use these photos as a guide:
Placement of eyes:
Close set: For those of you with close set eyes, we recommend choosing a false lash style that leaves the inner corners free and focuses on the outer corner with more of a winged-out design to lengthen and make your eyes appear larger! Your eye placement is extremely captivating and draws attention without much effort, so trying lighter and more natural looking mink lashes can also be a stunning choice for you. See below for our best picks for close set eyes!
Medium: For ladies blessed with medium set eyes, most fake lash styles compliment your eyes beautifully! You are able to play around with different volumes to see what you prefer.
Wide set: If the width between your eyes is larger than the width of one of your eyes, you are considered more wide set. Lucky for you, this type of eye placement creates a more youthful appearance! For this type of eye placement, we recommend a more full lash from the inner corner out to the outer corner, which creates the illusion of your eyes looking closer together.
Size of eyes:
Petite: Having a petite eye size allows for you to try out some fun ways to flatter your eye type! Many people may initially think that a more full false lash style would help create the illusion of larger eyes. But, we actually recommend a light to medium mink lash style which won’t over power your smaller eye area and will in turn help to accentuate them.
Medium/Large: For ladies lucky to have medium to larger sized eyes, your choices for which fake eyelashes to choose from is pretty much unlimited! Since you already have the larger eye look that many people try to create, you can have fun playing around with different volumes and designs to fit whatever makeup look you want to go for!
- Your natural lashes
It’s important to know what your natural lashes look like, so we can help you determine the volume of lashes that will work for your eyes!
Sparse: For ladies with sparser lashes, we recommend going with our more natural styles like the Little Black Lash, or Unforgettable for the most seamless look, however medium volume lashes will work as well, since our lashes have a beautiful natural curl to them.
Medium/Voluminous: For ladies blessed with fuller or more voluminous natural lashes, well you’re in luck! Because we have a full range of lashes that will compliment and enhance your eyes, ranging from medium to ultra glam volume.
The best part is, no matter what type of lashes you have, our Esqido mink lashes help to create a signature lash look once they are applied. Which lash type do you have?!
