Do you love the way your fake eyelashes look with glue on? Are you in love with how they look once they’re on? Do you HATE the mess, fumbling, and general inaccessibility of that glue afterward? We know that feeling. Whether it’s a special night out or just another day at school/work/whatever, we want our eyelashes to look great without any annoying side effects. Luckily, with a bit of research and some patience, anyone can get those lashes off their eyelids easily and painlessly. At first, glance, removing false lashes may seem like an easy task. However, if you’ve ever dealt with the residual effects of cheap glues or stubborn residues left over from inferior formulas, then you’ll understand why this post is so important. Eyelash glue is almost as important as the lashes themselves. If you use the right type for your needs and follow these steps – whether it’s for once or every time – then you can be sure to have happy eyes again soon.
How To Get Eyelash Glue Off Eyelid
Before you can remove any eye makeup, you’ll need to be sure that the glue is completely dry. This means that if there are any bits of adhesive still on your eyelids, it will be impossible to get off without causing damage. You can use a cotton pad with warm water and olive oil mixed together or an actual eyelash comb. If you decide to go this route, take extra care to not cut your lashes while removing the glue. Instead, start by brushing them gently with the comb until they’re completely clean of debris and adhesive. For more stubborn residue, use an eyelash brush (which should be able to hold more than one lash) and work upward on your lashes until all remnants are gone.
Once all residue is removed from your eyelashes, it is time for some serious cleaning and conditioning! In order for your lashes to look their best for as long as possible, you need to make sure that they are free from any product or other foreign elements that may have gotten on them during application or removal. The best way to do this is with a good eye makeup remover and a good eye makeup remover cloth (or your preferred method). Cleanse your eyes thoroughly with whatever method you choose so that these substances don’t mix into the glue residue left over from removal attempts in the past.*
3. Prepare Your Lashes
If you’ve already had experience removing falsies before then this step shouldn’t be too difficult. If you’ve never removed them before, however, it is best to avoid using a makeup remover that contains petroleum or mineral oils. These substances can leave your lashes looking dry and damaged. Instead, use a gentle eye makeup remover that contains no alcohol or other drying ingredients.
4. Apply The Remover
Now that your lashes are clean, gently massage it in with your fingers until it is completely saturated. Do not rub in hard as this may damage the lash and cause shortening of the fibers (which means you’ll have to buy more lashes). Once the remover has been fully absorbed into the lash, remove any excess with a cotton pad or eye makeup brush and let the residue on your lashes dry until they’re completely clear before applying glue again!
5. Apply The Glue
Once you’ve removed all traces of glue from your eyelashes (which should only take a minute or two), apply glue in the same way that you would use false eyelashes; using a lash applicator tool (or simply by holding them individually). You can also apply glue directly to the band of your false eyelashes if you prefer – this will make application easier, and will keep them from getting tangled together during removal! Apply glue in small amounts to each individual lash without letting it dry out completely – if it dries out too much while still on your eyelid then it could become impossible to remove without causing damage! This can be easily avoided by using a wet cloth to wipe off any excess glue that isn’t being used.
6. Wait And Wait Some More
The glue will take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to fully set, depending on the glue that you are using and the temperature of your room. Do not move your eyes or blink – this could cause movement in the false eyelashes which can cause breakage! If you do have to move your eyes, wait at least an hour before going back to remove them again. In between removing sessions, simply rest your eyes and let them dry out before applying more glue (or else risk damage).
What Are The Best Type Of Eyelash Glue?
1. Eyelash Glue With Wax
This type of glue is the most popular among women who wear false eyelashes. It is very easy to apply, dries quickly, and can be removed easily with some warm water. The wax on this type of glue ensures that it will not get stuck to your eyelids or lashes, and will remain in place for a long time.
2. Eyelash Glue With Mink Oil/Lanolin/Castor Oil
Also known as an ‘oil-based’ glue, this type of lash adhesive needs a lot of time to dry fully before being removed. This makes it a great choice for those who have sensitive eyes or those who wear their false eyelashes all the time (as they don’t have to worry about removing them). However, the process is long and tedious so it is best used on special occasions only or when you are wearing false eyelashes just once in a while!
3. Eyelash Glue With Acrylic
This type of glue is the most popular among men who wear false eyelashes. It is very easy to apply, dries quickly, and can be removed easily with some warm water. The acrylic on this type of glue ensures that it will not get stuck to your eyelids or lashes, and will remain in place for a long time.
4. Eyelash Glue With Wax Adhesive/Lanolin/Castor Oil For Eyelashes (and False Eyelashes)
This type of glue has a wax base, which means that it is easy to apply and remove, but can be tricky to remove if you want to take off your false eyelashes as well! This type of glue does not have the same drying time as other types and so is not recommended for use on false eyelashes that are going to be worn for longer than an hour (or else risk damage). However, if you’re looking for a fast-drying lash adhesive that can be easily removed then this may be the one for you!
