False eyelash problem!

Hoping someone might be able to provide some ideas / guidance! Has anyone else had this problem?


Quite experienced with makeup but havenโ€™t worn false eyelashes much. Have had them successfully placed by MUAs. I have had lessons with MUAs watch me place them (both strip and individual) and they said I do it correctly.


But 3 times now when applying, Iโ€™ve gotten eyelash glue in my eye. No idea how. I never notice it obviously at the time/ thereโ€™s no obvious occurrence but later on I notice glue on eyeball. Off to optometrist 3x to flush out.


I donโ€™t know how / why it happens. I wait for glue to get tacky. Donโ€™t use too much glue. Donโ€™t wiggle / move around - try to stick it on once and not move it from there.


I thought perhaps I was accidentally closing my eyes at points and not realising, and maybe the glue was seeping from top to bottom lashes and creating a string when I opened my eye? But Iโ€™ve recently noticed a few MUAs I follow seem to always place strip lashes on clientsโ€™ closed eyes so I assume that canโ€™t be it?

Re: False eyelash problem!

Thatโ€™s so strange @Polly741. I would say maybe try a different glue, but usually when they go bad, they get clumpy and solid, not runny. ๐Ÿคท


Whatโ€™s the climate like where you are? If itโ€™s humid, that can add to how long it takes for the glue to cure.

Strange problem for sure. I hope you find an answer!
