1. What’s the best glue for eyelash extensions?
Every lash artist has their own preference when defining ‘best’ – the fume, the lash longevity or the curing speed. In LashArt we have developed a full series of adhesives as we believe every lash artist should have several different adhesives to suit different clients and applications.
Among all features of eyelash extension glue, curing speed is what our customer are concerned about the most. We have added the diagram below to illustrate each glue’s cure speed without any pre-treatment, in the same humidity and temperature.
You can compare the other features of our glues in the diagram below.
The ‘irritation’ is measured purely by the glue’s fumes. A customer can react to any ingredient of a fume free glue so a patch test is necessary.

2. Do I need to use a primer with the glue?
The glue’s curing speed can be influenced by 2 main factors: pre-treatment and humidity.
A good pre-treatment will have a lot of benefit to curing speed and lash longevity. Imagine you were trying to bond together 2 pieces of plastic, you would need to clean both surfaces before fixing them. Lash Extensions are made of PBT material which is hard to bond by using cyanoacrylate alone. An accelerator will greatly reduce the surface energy and increase the quality of the bonding agent. Alcohol and Alkaline chemical is always to be used as primer and accelerator for the eyelash extension glue. Time must be allowed for the solvent carrier to flash off the substrate (typically < 1 min) prior to applying the adhesive.

3. What’s the main ingredients of the eyelash extension glue?
Eyelash Extension glue is 80% Cyanoacrylate, which cures with even the slightest amount of moisture. According to Wikipedia: “In general, cyanoacrylate is an acrylic resin that rapidly polymerises in the presence of water (specifically hydroxide ions), forming long, strong chains, joining the bonded surfaces together. As the presence of moisture causes the glue to set, exposure to normal levels of humidity in the air causes a thin skin to start to form within seconds, which greatly slows the reaction. Because of this cyanoacrylate is applied thinly, to ensure that the reaction proceeds rapidly and a strong bond is formed within a reasonable time.”
There are three main types:
- Ethyl: Fast curing, strong strength sometimes with strong fumes.
- Ethoaxyethyl: Slow curing, no fumes and ideal for sensitive clients.
- Butyl: Weak fumes and a slower curing rate.
Except the main ingredient, eyelash extension glue has been carefully formulated with a balance thickener, pigment stabiliser and accelerator.

4. What’s the best humidity/temperature for eyelash extension glue?
We recommend keeping the humidity between 45% - 60%, temperature between 20°C - 25 °C
The higher the humidity is (e.g. in a room) the faster the product cures.
If your humidity is too high the eyelash adhesive will not cure correctly and shock polymerization takes places. This results in a weaker bond with the natural lash.
If humidity is too low then the curing time will be slower as there is not enough moisture to 'cure' the eyelash adhesive and again your client will have poor retention with the adhesive becoming hard and stiff. (a so-called shock polymerization) The latter provokes a shrinking process of the adhesive layer, which leads to less bond strength.
All eyelash extension glue has ‘Fixture Time’ and ‘Cure Time’. An adhesive has “Fixed” when the bond is strong enough to be handled without compromising the long-term strength of the adhesive. For lash extension glue this time is usually within seconds at room temperature and achieves full strength in 24 hours.
It is important to keep a consistent humidity level in any extensions studio to control the glue curing time. The humidity in the room can change during seasons, the humidity will be low in the winter when the heating is on. Humidifiers and de-humidifiers can aid in regulating the humidity, which should be set between 45-60% Relative Humidity. This will give the optimum curing time for applying the lash. With too much moisture in the air, the glue may cure too quickly which will cause the glue to turn too sticky too quickly and become difficult to manipulate into place. Similarly, if the air is too dry, the adhesive will take too long to cure, which may cause the lash to slip out of place before setting.
To monitor your humidity levels, we would recommend that you purchase a hygrometer which measures the humidity/moisture in your treatment room.
If the humidity is too high, you can control this by opening your windows or purchasing a de-humidifier which can lower the humidity. Alternatively, you can turn on the heating or a fan heater. A slower drying eyelash adhesive may also be considered.
If the humidity is too low, you will need a humidifier. This works by releasing water vapour into the air to increase humidity. This is ideal when you have the heating on and when the air can be dry. You can also consider plants and nano-mister. Alternatively, consider a faster drying eyelash adhesive.
5. How to store eyelash extension glue?
Though normal Cyanoacrylate Glue can be stored for approximately 2 years, eyelash extension glue is different. They have a rather short shelf life (Normally 6-9 month) and it is recommended to use it within 1 month of opening. Upmost care needs to be taken to extend the life of eyelash extension glue.
Lash adhesives should be stored in a cool, dry, dark place, away from other products. The perfect storage solution is a wide mouthed vacuum flask. When storing the glue in the preserving pack provided please keep the silica gel sachet in the bag, remove all air then seal well. Where possible store the glue in the fridge/freezer and ensure the preserving pack is stood upwards. Remove from the fridge/freezer and allow the bottle to thaw at room temperature for 24 hours before use.
Shake vigorously before the first use.
Do not refrigerate/refreeze after thawing.
AFTER THE FIRST USE
After using the lash adhesive, squeeze any excess adhesive from the nozzle into a lint free wipe to avoid clogging and clean the nozzle well to ensure no build up occurs that may prevent the cap from being properly sealed. Store the lash adhesive along with silica gel sachets in the preserving pack, squeezing any air out before resealing the pack. You may consider wrapping the preserving pack, or storing in a sealable glass jar with more silica gel sachets, ensuring the preserving pack is standing. It is recommended to store in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight. Repeat after each use.
HOW TO: DIY VOLUME TILES
Arrange your lashes from longest (at the top) to shortest (at the bottom). This way the long lengths won't be in your way, or your view when picking up the shorter ones hiding behind it. This small tip makes a big difference.
Prior to removing the lashes from the tray & placing them directly onto your new tile, de-tack them on the back of your hand. If you don't, the notorious paper backing will become adhered to the tile making it difficult to remove quickly when you have to replace the lash strip mid appointment!
* if you prefer lash trays without paper backing, try EBL lashes or Bella lashes they remove off of tiles or hand palettes like a dream!
Invest in a label maker. You can get them at places like Wal-mart for around $20-25. They will make your lash life organized. I use it to label my tiles, even making a baby one for my adhesive with the expiration date on it so I know exactly when to toss it!
