So what is eyelash glue? For people who use fake lashes frequently, the type of glue is of utmost importance to carry off the look with falsies. Eyelash glue is also sometimes referred to as eyelash adhesive or eyelash glue. It is basically used to stick the eyelash to your skin just above your real eyelash. Therefore, choosing the best eyelash glue is such an important step in the whole makeup application process.
Firstly, you’re going want to decide what type of eyelash you will be using, whether it’s a whole strip or individual lashes (which require eyelash glue) both types will have their pros and cons, and ultimately, it all depends on what kind of look you want to portray. After deciding your lash type, you can move on to choose the colour of the eyelash glue you prefer. There are basically two types of eyelash glue, transparent ones and black ones. Transparent ones are less obvious when dried and gives a milder effect. Your eyelash might actually look more natural and real. However, you may also opt for the black eyelash adhesive if you want to achieve a more dramatic look. Black eyelash glue will remain black like eye shadow when dried, so that can be an added advantage. However, timing is very important when using the black eyelash glue, it’s easy to smudge and mess up if you try to put it on before it becomes really sticky at the right timing. Black glue goes really well with darker coloured lashes such as brown or black.
Chemicals are another thing you should consider when choosing lash glue. You do not want to put unwanted toxic chemicals anywhere near your eyes. There are many eyelash glue that are made of natural things like oak latex which are safe and keeps a firm hold. Oak latex is sticky yet easily removable, you won’t even need makeup remover, just simply slowly pull it off in 5 seconds. Most importantly, it doesn’t ruin your original eyelashes when removing.
Tweezers must be used in applying the falsies in order that this is closer to the true one. Hold the falsies about 30 seconds and let the adhesive set. Gap must be filled up with en eye liner either it is gel, liquid or pencil. A lash separator can also help combine the falsies with the natural. Mascara can be an option too but these can cause more thickness thus sometimes you’ll suffer from lash clumps.
Falsies must be removed when sleeping to avoid infections. A make up remover or cleanser must be used gently while removing to avoid plucking of the natural lashes. These can also be reused but make sure you don’t have to use mascara with it and clean it with makeup remover, dry it before using it again.
The most frustrating part of selecting the best eyelash adhesive that meets the criteria discussed, is the range of brands available. To make it easier to find safe, high quality and long lasting glue.
