False eyelashes can be a great addition to your makeup routine, giving you a dramatic and eye-catching look. However, applying them can be tricky, especially when it comes to using eyelash glue. In this blog, we’ll give you some tips on how to use eyelash glue to apply false eyelashes.

  1. Choose the right eyelash glue

There are different types of eyelash glue available on the market, so it's essential to choose the right one. Some glues are waterproof, while others are not. Additionally, some adhesives are better suited for sensitive eyes or those who wear contact lenses. 

Our 5 star rated LASHLOCK eyelash glue is the perfect solution to many of these problems. It is a clear eyelash adhesive which is vegan, cruelty free and latex free. Because LASHLOCK is latex free, it is great for those with sensitivities to latex, or sensitive eyes.

  1. Apply the glue sparingly

It can be tempting to apply a lot of glue to ensure that the eyelashes stay put. However, too much glue can make the false eyelashes difficult to apply and uncomfortable to wear. Apply a small amount of glue to the base of the lashes using a toothpick or a small brush.

  1. Let the glue dry for a few seconds

Before you apply the false eyelashes, let the glue dry for a few seconds. This will make it tacky and easier to apply. Waiting a few seconds will also prevent the eyelashes from slipping or sliding around once you've placed them.

  1. Use tweezers to apply the eyelashes

Using eyelash tweezers to apply false eyelashes will give you better control and precision. Gently pick up the eyelashes from the center with the tweezers and place them as close to your natural lash line as possible. Then, use the tweezers to adjust the lashes to fit the curve of your eye.

  1. Press the lashes down gently

Once you've placed the false eyelashes on your lash line, press them down gently with your fingers or a clean cotton swab. This will help the lashes adhere to your natural lashes and stay in place.

  1. Apply mascara to blend the lashes

After applying false eyelashes, apply a coat of mascara to blend them with your natural lashes. This will make the lashes look more natural and enhance the overall look.

  1. Remove the false eyelashes gently

When it's time to remove the false eyelashes, be gentle to avoid damaging your natural lashes. We recommend using our Magic Away Cleansing Balm to melt down the glue.. Then, gently pull the eyelashes off from the outer corner towards the inner corner of your eye.

In conclusion, using eyelash glue to apply false eyelashes requires a bit of practice, but with these tips, you'll be a pro in no time. Remember to choose the right glue, apply it sparingly, let it dry, use tweezers, press the lashes down gently, blend with mascara, and remove the lashes gently. Happy lash applying!
