Eyelash Glue Versus Adhesive
I love me some fab fake eyelashes. Long, voluminous, ones with green in them on St. Patty’s day – they are all the rage for me. I’ve always used adhesive when applying them, but one time, I slipped up and bought glue instead. I didn’t think much of it – what difference would it be? I slapped some glue on the strip, plopped them on, and headed out the door. While pulling into the parking lot of my destination, I flipped open my visor mirror to give myself one last look. Thank goodness I did, as both eyelashes were falling off, nowhere close to be stuck on my eyes. Panicked – and having forgotten my trusty adhesive sitting on my kitchen counter – I had no choice but to pull the lashes off and go natural for the night. With smudged eye makeup thanks to the ruined lashes, I felt uncomfortable the entire night. That is my experience eyelash glue, which I chucked and will never try again. The way to go – adhesive. Apply to the eyelash strip (not your own eye) wait about 30 seconds for it to become tacky, then apply close to the lash line. I put my eye makeup on first, and found it’s best for me to do a thick line of black liner on the top lash, as it really helps blend in the strip. Finish with a coat of mascara if needed, and you are set!
