What are Pre Glued lashes?
Pre glued lashes are strip lashes that have been designed for a quick and easy application. They require no lash adhesive as the lash band is pre glued meaning you simply need to measure them, trim them down if necessary and pop them on! They are a great alternative to standard strip lashes if you tend to wear lashes every day, or if you are an inexperienced lash wearer that wants an easy, effortless enhancement. Pre glued lashes can’t be reused, they are intended for one use per pair. Whatever lash style you are looking for, there is bound to be a pre glued pair for you.

What you need to apply Pre Glued lashes:
- Tweezers or a lash applicator
- A mirror
How to apply:
Applying Pre Glued lashes is super straightforward, which is what makes them an ideal option for beginners or those that want to speed up their morning beauty routine. There is no need to apply lash adhesive which means less fuss, mess and waiting around for the glue to go tacky. We recommend setting up a good-sized mirror on a surface in front of you that is level with your face.
Before you apply any form of strip lashes, we recommend curling your natural lashes and applying one coat of mascara. This helps the false lashes to blend in with your natural lashes, and it also provides a better base for the falsies to stick to.
After applying your choice of mascara, be sure to wait for this to dry before applying the lashes on top. This will prevent any smudging. When your mascara has dried, simply begin by peeling the pre glued lash from the tray using a lash applicator or tweezers. Be careful when removing the lash and ensure you are gentle so that it doesn’t break or misshape.
Once you have successfully removed the lash from the tray, roughly measure the lash against your lash line without letting the band actually touch your eyelid. If you feel that the lash could do with trimming for a more secure and comfortable fit, then use lash scissors to cut a small section of lash strands from the outer edge of the lash. Measure the lash again once trimmed, and if you’re happy with the fit, then you can continue to apply the lash.
Using a lash applicator or tweezers, position the lash as close to your natural lash line as possible. Gently press the lash down into place, and continue to adjust the two outer edges accordingly, until the entire lash is secured. You can then use the lash applicator to carefully ‘squeeze’ the false lash to your natural lashes to ensure they are blended together for a discreet finish.
What you need to remove Pre Glued lashes:
- A mirror
- Baby oil or an oil-based cleanser
- A gentle eye makeup remover
How to remove:
Removing Pre Glued lashes is also very easy, however there are a few things that differ slightly from removing standard strip lashes. The adhesive used on Pre Glued lashes is slightly stronger and stickier than normal lash adhesive, as it is designed to remain sticky in the packaging before you apply it. You will need to apply an oil-based cleanser or some baby oil to a cotton bud, and gently swipe it along the lash line and band to break up the adhesive. This will allow for the lash to effortlessly slide off your eye without causing any damage to your natural lashes or pain. Use your tweezers or applicator to carefully peel the lash off after you have dissolved the adhesive.
Once both lashes are removed, you can then dispose of them as pre glued lashes cannot be reused. You can also then use the cotton bud and cleanser to remove any further traces of adhesive from your eyes and lash line, and use an eye makeup remover to remove all of your eye makeup.
