An eyelash glue that lasts for hours and keeps lashes secure is best. A glue that is waterproof is also ideal. The most common eyelash glues are made from latex and have temporary adhesives.

Latex eyelash glue is most effective when it's half-dry, as it adheres to the lashes well in this state. However, latex glue is not suitable for those with a rubber allergy. Liquid eyelash glue is more of a permanent solution and must be taken off the eyes with a special remover product. There are also eyelash glues that are cream-based, but these must be applied with precision to prevent clumping.
