Q4 | WHEN SHOULD I SHAKE MY EYELASH ADHESIVE?
Shaking the glue effectively enables all of your glue ingredients to be mixed effectively, and gives your client the best possible retention from their set.

Stabilizers: make sure the glue works correctly and will influence the drying time of the glue.

Q5 | WHY DOES MY BLACK ADHESIVE FINALLY TURN WHITE ON THE LASHES?
Adhesive cures during a chemical reaction process in which chains of polymers cross-link and connect themselves together. As the reaction occurs, fumes are produced and can last up to 24-hours in dry air. The presence of moisture can accelerate the curing process to reduce the time that fumes are present. This can be both useful and devastating to the lashes depending on the level of moisture present. Too much moisture can cure the adhesive too fast, resulting in blanching of the lashes. The adhesive will turn white and the lashes will fall off within hours or days if this occurs.
