Standard lashes are the false lashes that are similar to the ones you have on your eyes without any extra added.

Standard falsies are usually one single lash on each eyelid in a thin layer. These false lashes are not fluffy or thick. But rather give you that pretty and natural look.

You can choose how long or short you want them to be, and these days even what color you want them to be.

3D lashes are nothing l the lashes that you have naturally, they are extra lashes that people apply on their eyes to make them look different. They are usually made of different materials like synthetic or mink. They're available in strip lashes or as eyelash extensions.

They are usually made to look like they have more lashes than one single lash., especially on the outer edge. They are thicker and fluffier than the lashes you have naturally.

They are the false eyelashes that make your eyes look bigger and more beautiful. They are the lashes that you can't see when you open your eyes, you have to apply them on.

There are a few things to consider when choosing between standard and 3D false lashes, and it's important to make the right choice for you.

First, you should think about your personal preference. Do you like the way standard lashes look, or do you like the way 3D false eyelashes look more? It's important to choose the style that you think looks best on you.

You also need to think if strip lashes or eyelash extensions are better for you. Remember eyelash extensions need to be applied by a professional while applying strip lashes can be done at home.

Next, you should think about your lifestyle. Are you someone who is always on the go, or do you have a more relaxed lifestyle? If you're always on the go, standard lashes might be the better choice because they are lightweight and easy to maintain along the lash line. But, if you have a more relaxed lifestyle, you might prefer the added volume and thickness of 3D lashes.

Finally, you should consider the condition of your natural eyelashes. If you have naturally long and thick lashes, 3D false eyelashes might not be necessary. However, if you have naturally short and thin lashes, 3D lashes might be the better choice to help add thickness.

So, before making a decision, it's important to consider your personal preference, lifestyle, and the condition of your natural lashes. You can also consult with a professional, like a lash technician, to help you decide which style is best for you.
