Eyelid glue | 2011-07-07
Double eyelids or round eyes are considered a sign of feminine beauty in East Asia. Some women opt for a temporary solution by wearing eyelid glue. The glue is painted on the upper eyelid, which is then pushed upward with a plastic prong and held in place by the adhesive. The glue has to be dried for 5 – 10 minutes before creating a fold. This method creates or enhances a fold in the eyelid ("double eyelid") that opens up the eye exposing the eyelashes. Some men also use eyelid glue. The glue does not last and must be reapplied after a few hours. Eyelid glue may also cause irritation.
