Eyelash glue is a popular choice for adhering to fake eyelashes, but can it also serve as glitter glue? Yes. Eyelash glue is a contact adhesive that works well to attach glitter to the skin. It dries clear and keeps the glitter in place.
In this article, we will discuss how to use eyelash glue. We will also provide tips on how to make your makeup look more glamorous!
Can You Use Eyelash Glue As Glitter Glue?
Yes, you can use eyelash glue to apply glitter. It is an excellent alternative to glitter glue because it is less expensive and easy to find. It can be found in the cosmetics section of most stores. The only negative is that it can be difficult to remove if you get it on your skin or clothing.
If you use eyelash glue as glitter glue, test it on a small area first to see if it is compatible with your skin. Some people are allergic to glue, so it is vital to be aware before using it on your entire face or body.
What Is Eyelash Glue And What Are Its Benefits
The term “eyelash glue” describes an adhesive to attach false eyelashes. Eyelash glue is made from different materials, including latex, rubber, and acrylic. Each type of material has its benefits and drawbacks.
Latex-based lash glues are the most popular type! They are easy to apply and remove, and they are very affordable. However, they can cause allergic reactions in some people.
Rubber-based lash glues cause allergic reactions less than latex-based glues. They are also more waterproof than latex-based glues. However, they are more difficult to remove and more expensive.
Acrylic-based lash glues are the most waterproof and long-lasting of all types. They are also the most difficult to remove. Some people also find them more challenging to apply than other types.
How To Use Eyelash Glue As Glitter Glue
To apply glitter with eyelash glue, start by applying a thin layer of glue to the area where you want the glitter to be. Then, use a brush or your finger to apply the glitter to the glue. Allow the glue to dry for a few minutes before adding more glitter or moving on to another area.
If you are using eyelash glue for the first time, it is essential to read the instructions carefully. Remove any excess glue from your skin or clothing before it dries. Once the glue is dry, it will be more challenging to remove.
Tips For Applying Glitter Makeup
Applying glitter makeup can become tricky. But with these tips, you’ll become a pro in no time!
To start, you’ll want to gather your supplies. Of course, you’ll need some glitter and a suitable adhesive. We like to use GlitterFix, which has a specific design for glitter makeup. You’ll also need a glue brush and a setting spray to keep your look in place.
Once you have your supplies, it’s time to start applying the glitter. We like to start with a small amount of glitter and then build up from there. Dip your brush into the adhesive, and then tap off any excess. You don’t want to use too much glue, or the glitter will not stick well. Then, apply the glitter to your face using a patting motion. Repeat this process until you have the desired amount of glitter on your face.
That’s it! Finally, set your look with a setting spray. This will help keep the glitter in place and make your makeup last longer.
Can You Use Eyelash Glue For Nails?
You can use eyelash glue for nails, but you must be careful. Eyelash glue is powerful and can damage your nails if you’re not careful. If you use too much, it can also make your nails look oily and unhealthy. So, if you use eyelash glue for your nails, use a small amount and be very careful.
Waterproof Eyelash Glue
A good quality waterproof lash glue is the best way to keep your falsies in place all day. We like to use the DUO adhesive in the clear. It goes on white and dries clear, so it’s easy to see where you applied it. Give it 30 seconds to set before putting your lashes. Once it sets, it’s not going anywhere!
Now that you have your lash glue, it’s time to place your falsies. Start by holding the strip lash up to your eye to measure where you need to trim it. Once you have the length you want, use small scissors to snip off the excess.
Now that your lash is the right size, it’s time to apply the glue. We like to use a Q-tip or a small brush to apply a thin layer of glue to the strip lash. Do not put too much on; it will take forever to dry.
Once the glue is set, wait about 20 to 30 seconds for it to become tacky. Gently place the strip lash on your lash line, as close to your natural lashes as possible. Use tweezers or your fingers to gently press down on the strip and hold for a few seconds. This will help the lash adhere to your natural lashes better.
There you have it! You now know how to apply falsies like a pro. Now go out there and flutter those gorgeous lashes!
When you find that your falsies are not staying put, chances are you either didn’t wait long enough for the glue to become tacky or needed to apply more of it. So, next time, give the glue a good 30 seconds to set and use a bit more of it. We promise your falsies will stay put all day!
How To Make Eyelash Glue Without Glue
All you need is some clear nail polish and a cotton swab. Apply the nail polish to the base of your lashes, and then use the cotton swab to apply it to your lash line. Let it dry for a few seconds, and then apply your false lashes as normal.
That’s all there is to it! You’ll never have to worry about running out of eyelash glue again. This simple hack will save you time and hassle.
