What Eyelash Adhesive is Right For Me and Why is It Necessary?

Vogue made eyelash extensions popular in the 1930’s, and beautiful lashes are every girl’s dream, but we need to talk about eyelash adhesive. 

Finding the right eyelash adhesive can help make that dream a reality. Adhesive provides proper bonding between the natural lashes and the extension, and without it, all your hard work and time-intensive application will disappear with one tiny gust of wind.  

The best lashes stay put through workouts, weather, showers, and tears. These adhesives can make that happen. Study up on these types of adhesive so you can decide which one is right for you.

Characteristics of Eyelash Adhesive

It’s hard to know what kind of adhesive you’ll like best without actually trying it. But all eyelash adhesives have the following characteristics that you can use to rule out any that won’t work for you:

  • Dry Time – Some glues dry super fast, in 1-3 seconds. Others take much longer to dry. The dry time of adhesive is also heavily dependent on the temperature and humidity of the room where you do your lashes.
  • Fumes – Stronger adhesives tend to have stronger fumes, and when you’re stuck in a room for 4 hours with a client, fumes can put a real damper on the experience. 
  • Hold Time – How many weeks can you expect an adhesive to hold the lash extensions in place? Hold time varies for each adhesive, ranging from a few days to several weeks. We always recommend going for longevity to keep those lashes looking lovely as long as possible.
  • Types of Eyelash Adhesive

    There are so many different types of adhesive on the market, and it can be overwhelming to try and comb through them all to find the best ones. So we’ve done the work for you! Here are our top recommendations for adhesive:

      • Liquid Gold Black – This adhesive is perfect for all types of lashes, so you can use it on all of your clients. It has a dry time of 1-3 seconds and an impressive hold time of 5-7 weeks. With a hold time like that, your clients will stick around for years. Liquid gold black adhesive is latex-free and the very best part, it’s low fume. It’s ideal for dry climates with humidity of 30% or less.
  • Liquid Gold Clear – A clear version of the liquid gold black adhesive, liquid gold clear doesn’t contain carbon black so it’s ideal for working with colored lashes. This glue dries in 1-2 seconds, and like the black adhesive is low-fume, latex-free, and has a hold time of 5-7 weeks. It’s made specifically for 30%-75% humidity, but it can also be used in lower humidities. 
  • Holy Grail – This glue really is the holy grail of lash adhesive. It’s the perfect glue for more advanced lash artists, and is characterized by it’s super fast dry time of 0.5-1 second. It can be easily used in a range of humidities (15%-75% humidity) and it’s hold time is over 6 weeks! It’s also latex-free, so you don’t have to worry about client allergies.
