Whether you’ve just bought your first falsie or you’re already a false lash pro, you’ll find everything you need to know about using lash glue right here. We’ll also give you the lowdown on the revolutionary new product which is set to make lash glue a thing of the past...
Intrigued? Read on!
All eyelash glues are made up of two primary ingredients. One part of the glue is dedicated to drying time (a chemical which sets the glue quickly) and the other to hold (a chemical which binds your false lashes to your natural lashes and holds them in place).
Glue is basically an adhesive that has been mixed with liquid. When you apply this liquid glue to a surface (that surface being your lash line in this case!) it dries and hardens which causes the molecules around it to stick together.
How do I apply eyelash glue?
1) Make sure your false lashes are trimmed to the right length.
2) Dot a small amount of glue along the length of the bands on your false lashes.
3) Wait a few seconds, not enough for the glue to dry but just enough that it is a tiny bit less liquid. This will help stop the glue from squirting across your lashes when you apply the falsie.
4) Drop the falsie into place on top of your natural lash line. The easiest way to do this is using an applicator; find out more in our 10-step guide to applying false lashes.
TOP TIP: If you’re planning on wearing mascara, it’s best to add it before you apply your false lashes.
There are three main ways to remove eyelash glue: makeup remover, olive oil, and steam. We’ve explained all three in our dedicated How to remove eyelash glue blog.
The thinnest part of skin on our face is on our eyelids, so it's important to ensure the products you use around your eyes have been carefully formulated to protect this highly sensitive area. When checking the ingredients in your lash glue try to avoid methylacrylate, formaldehyde, parabens and latex, as these can potentially cause irritation, redness, burning, itching, or tearing.
Eyelash glues can also damage your lashes by causing them to clump and tear, so be extra careful when removing your falsies.
