I love animals so much! I had never thought about minks before as I hadn’t known too much about them. I guess its because I am originally from New Zealand and the closest animal we have to a mink is the ferret 🙂
It was only until about three years ago that I came across a makeup brand selling synthetic eyelashes, that I noticed they were also selling mink hair lashes and thought to myself, “I wonder what kind of animal a mink is?”. Well of course I googled it and…
Came across beautiful big eyes staring at me, with lovely silky hair and standing in a cat like pose. I couldn’t believe that anyone would want to wear this precious babies hair as temporary eyelashes. It makes me feel sick thinking about it.
Now this is how I personally feel about real hair eyelashes. For me it is unnecessary to wear another animals fur or hair. Especially for beauty purposes. I care about animals deeply and just can’t imagine taking ones life just for a coat, hair extensions or eyelashes to wear.
Minks have their own way in nature as all animals do and deserve to freely live their lives on their own terms. I drew this lovely mink as I wanted you to look into their beautiful eyes and see how adorable they are.
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a drawing of a mink using colour pencils. I think this mink looks super cute. I love their eyes and smile. It is just too cute! Makes me very happy.
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Remember to be kind to all beings. We share this lovely planet together and are all needed. We need each other. Have a nice day!
