natural and synthetic, they can also be full or scanty depending on what you
want. Strip false lashes fit properly and look more natural because the lashes
have been well arranged on a strip. They are also very easy to apply and can be

these are lashes (between 3 -5 single lashes) clustered in one knot and
they could be of different lengths. They are applied in steps and successions

single individual lashes as ‘single false lashes’. Either way the three types
of lashes all look differently and their application is also different.
