False eyelashes are a great way to accentuate your eyes and frame the face. The right lashes are essential. Natural mink lashes that are the perfect length and shape for your eyes and individual style are a beautiful way to get lush, natural lashes.
While lashes are important, another just as important factor is the eyelash adhesive you use. Too often people end up using the wrong eyelash adhesive and then wonder why their lashes don't look good. Or they use an adhesive they are sensitive to!
Should You Use Clear Or Dark Eyelash Glue?
It depends on the look you are going for. If you are using no eye shadow, or light colors, and especially if you aren't using black lashes -- you don't want to use the black eyelash adhesive. It will look harsh and possibly messy.
If you are seeking a more natural look, adhesive that goes on white but dries clear is easy to use and doesn't distract from the look of the lashes.
However, if you are going with a more dramatic look, black adhesive is ideal.
What If You Have A Sensitivity To Eyelash Adhesive?
The good news is there are non-latex brands that work just as well and won't irritate your eyes.
Overall, the best bet is a clear, high quality lash glue that lasts, doesn't irritate and is easy to remove. It should be perfect no matter what style lashes you use and it should look good whether you are going all out or having a minimal makeup day.
