What it is Eyelash Glue?
Eyelash glue or eyelash adhesive refers to a beauty product, which is used to hold false or fake eyelashes either between or on top of natural eyelashes or on the lash line. This glue or adhesive comes in either a clear or a white paste that becomes transparent after drying, or it could be tinted. Although some false eyelashes come with an adhesive pre-packed, this adhesive is to be used on the first instance of wearing them. Afterwards, when you want to put on the false eyelashes again (for eyelashes that can be worn severally), you have to at least get one.
Other than fixing false eyelashes, it can be use on the face and neck area to fix other beauty things such as ‘germ like accents’ or sequins on the face, décolletage and neck areas. Furthermore, it could be used in mounting costumes to the skin.
How to Choose Eyelash Glue
When choosing eyelash glue, it is important to know that there are different types of eye lash glues that exist. You also deserve to know how each of the them is used. This knowledge can guide you on what to choose and when to choose which type of eyelash adhesive. Of course, some false lashes come with their own formulated glue, especially those worn only once. However, most of the eyelashes worn repeatedly might require you to buy a separate bottle of eye lash glue.
The first consideration when choosing the is their types. There are essentially three main types of eye lash glues in the market namely latex, liquid and cream glue types.
- Latex Eyelashes Glues – Are made from rubber and they are the most traditional types of eye lash adhesives. They are used to stick fake eyelashes when they are half-dry (apply, wait for them to slightly dry –half way dry and stick your eyelashes). Can be cleaned off easily but unsuitable for people who are sensitive to rubber.
- Liquid eyelashes Glues – they come as liquid solutions. They are more permanent and need a eye lash glue remover.
- Cream eyelashes Glues – Come in cream form and requires skillful application or you will end up with a lumpy and uneven looking false eyelashes. Messy applications can lead to unnatural looks and you need to be carefully when using this type of eye lash glue.
Other than types, there are two kinds of eyelashes glue for false eyes, the regular and the waterproof eyelash glue. People who might be exposed to humid conditions, have teary eyes, likely to cry or have chances of water splashing on their face, are advised to use waterproof. Waterproof can be worn for similar reasons as waterproof mascara. However, it harder to remove compared to the regular lash glues or adhesive although it holds the false eyelashes much better than most of the other types.
The other important consideration to make when you are choosing eyelashes adhesive is its color. Although most adhesives become clear when they dry up, irrespective of whether they were clear or white when in their bottles, there are a few tinted eyelash adhesives designed to match the eyeliner type one is wearing. Black eyelashes glue will for instance work perfectly well with someone wearing a darker eyeshadow or black eyeliner. However, you could still use clear eye lash glue but cover it with your eyeliner instead of going for tinted eyelash glues.
Before using any eye lash adhesive, it is important to test its suitability for your skin type. People who have sensitive skins need carefully to choose an eye lash glue for sensitive skins. In addition to that, before trying any eye lash glue, you need to conduct a patch test to confirm if your skin will react or not react to the specific eye lash glue, you have chosen.
Price is an important consideration when choosing ey elash adhesives and prices vary from one brand to another. With around $10, you should be able to buy most of the eyelash glues but this price could be as little as $3 or more than $10.
