Glue & Go vs. Line & Lash: What are the Different Ways to Apply False Lashes?

Do you know the easiest way to apply false lashes? Do you usually wear liner or prefer a no-makeup makeup look? 

Applying lashes can be an intimidating process, especially for beginners. There are multiple ways to do it and you might not know where to start. That's okay though, because we've made lash application easy for any method of application you choose! And it truly comes down to the type of false lash, and most importantly, lash adhesive you use. 

False lashes can be applied using a lash adhesive/glue (this is still the most common method of application), or with an adhesive or magnetic eyeliner. Both ways have their benefits, so it’s ultimately up to you which you prefer - if you love eyeliner and a more dramatic lash line, then a black adhesive would be your go-to. And if you prefer a more natural, invisible look, then a clear adhesive is exactly what you need!

Velour offers false eyelashes and adhesives for everyone, whether you prefer to glue and go, or line and lash - with our OG White Latex-Free Lash Adhesive and Black Lash Adhesive, our highly coveted Lash & Go Eyeliner or our new Glue & Go Pen. Let us break it down for you.

Traditional Lash Adhesive  

If you prefer a clean makeup look, here is an overview of how to use a lash adhesive to apply your go-to falsies! 

If you’re using an adhesive, we’d recommend applying a thin layer to the lash band and waiting 30 seconds for the adhesive to get tacky. With Velour’s Latex-Free White Lash Adhesive, you’ll know it’s ready to apply because it will change colour from white to a blue-ish clear colour! 

One of our pro tips for extra hold is to add an extra dot of adhesive to the corners of the lash band.  

Once the adhesive is tacky, you can pop on your false lash with your fingers or with the Velour Too Easy Lash Applicator and voilà, you’re ready to go! 


Line & Lash 

Do you love liner? Is your go-to look a classic wing or cat eye? Then our 3-in-1 Lash & Go Eyeliner is for you! This hybrid eyeliner is our go-to for applying magnetic lashes or false lashes! 

Using Velour Lash & Go Eyeliner, apply from inner to outer corner of the lash line. The liner dries down quite quickly, so if you’re using it as an adhesive to apply false lashes, we’d recommend applying on one eye at a time! Once you’ve applied Lash & Go to the first eye, apply your false lash while the eyeliner is still wet. Then you can move onto the other eye following the same steps! 

If you find magnetic eyelashes easier to apply, you can use our Lash & Go Eyeliner as well! The main difference between using it for false and magnetic lashes, is that you want to wait for the liner to dry before applying magnetic lashes. Simply line, wait for the liner to dry, then pop on your favourite magnetic lashes!

Glue & Go 

Are you a lash newbie? Do you struggle with a winged liner? This beginner-friendly lash adhesive pen applies and dries clear, so no eyeliner skills are needed. 

Apply the Velour Glue & Go Pen directly onto your natural lash line, from inner to outer corner. The formula dries down quite quickly, so we recommend applying one eye at a time! Using the Velour Too Easy Lash Applicator, or your fingers, place the lash as close to your natural lash line as possible and adjust as necessary. 

Whether you Glue & Go or Line & Lash, Velour has what you need for easy false lash application. Give them all a try and share your favourite application method below!
