#Beauty | Dress Your Lashes for the Christmas Party Season, with Threads*

I am a false lash obsesso. I rarely leave the house without applying a pair - it just feels wrong to let other humans suffer the burden of my face without them!

I'm sure you've heard that old saying 'the eyes are the windows to your soul', right? Well. I like to frame my windows with a fluttery and dramatic pair of curtains [you see where I'm going with this clumsy metaphor, right?!] I love lashes - the longer the better. 

I'm not blessed with naturally amazing eyelashes, so I have to fake it until I make it. I've tried everything in my quest for killer lashes - from booster serums [this HD Beauty one is pretty good], to having a LVL Lash treatment [which is amazing, btw] to that Younique Mascara that's supposed to work minor miracles [spoiler alert - it doesn't.] So for a short term, fluttery fix, I always reach for a pack of false lashes. I know there's more permanent solutions on the market - such as getting eyelash extensions and tints etc - but it costs a small fortune to keep getting your lashes done at the salon and if you decide to go out last minute, you're never getting in there in time. That's why I always do my own and always have a stock pile of my fave false eyelashes in my makeup storage; so I'm never caught short.

At this time of year, I literally go through falsies like there's no tomorrow - it's CHRISTMAS PARTY SEASON GUYS and everything that happens in December is an excuse for a festive celebration. Christmas is a big excuse to go all out - with presents, food, drinks, makeup and your outfits; so even if you're new to falsies, you're more likely to consider wearing them at this time of year. And if that's the case,  I've got a fab new brand to inspire you - Threads.

Threads sell a variety of products - false lashes, hair products, eyeliners and brow products, too. The lashes they very kindly sent me for this post are from their Angel Lashes Collection. This beautiful range of falsies [every blogger's dream] includes the styles ​Angel Eyes, Be-bop, Celestial, Charleston, Emilloo, Red Cherri, Rock Chick, Sex Kitten and Vava voom - all of which are handmade, with a flexible band for comfort. Threads lashes are made with feather­weight technology and come with full instructions on the best way to apply them. They also make excellent stocking fillers.

All of Threads lashes come with a little bottle of glue inside, which is a nice touch and super useful. All Threads' lash glues are latex and fragrance free - and blue, funnily enough! I've never seen a blue lash glue before. But it's actually really, really good - especially with the styles of lashes in this post. I'm always a bit iffy with lash glue [I never trust it!!] but this stuff is brilliant and will 100% keep your eyelashes secured into position for the FULL duration of your Christmas celebrations; no matter how many Jagerbombs you have!

These lashes are insanely beautiful - full, defined and soft. I love lashes with a spikey edge. They're quite dramatic, which makes them ideal for wear over the Christmas Party Season; to really make your eyes pop and make everyone else's eyes pop out in envy. Despite them looking thick & full, they're pretty easy to apply and not too heavy on your lashline.

These Red Cherri Lashes are my favourite style of Threads lashes to date. I love the shape of them and how they really define my eyes. I was surprised by how fluttery and textured they looked when applied - I expected them to be quite thick and heavy, but they totes proved me wrong. I'll definitely be getting some wear out of these over the next few weeks. And maybe some free drinks, if I flutter them enough!

I was really pleasantly surprised by these lashes. Ordinarily I wouldn't choose a style like this, as I'd feel it wasn't dramatic enough - and obv, I'm a full on drama queen / nightmare, so I need lashes to reflect this [to warn unsuspecting members of the public.] But when I applied my Vava Vooms [the easiest set of these Threads lashes to apply by far] they did actually really define my eyes, add noticeable length to my lashes and sat naturally with my LVL treated natural eyelashes. I really like them.

Trying this style of lashes has pushed me out of my comfort zone, and I'm loving it. I do still feel that for me, these are a style I'd typically wear during the day. But if you're not as used to wearing falsies as I am, they'd also look fab for a night out; to ease you into the lash life.

The beautiful shaping and texture of these lashes caught my eye straight away. They're so pretty, I've never owned a pair of lashes quite like them. Their graduation in volume emphasises the outer corners of your eyes and gives you sexy, feline-esque peepers.

I love that the Celestial lashes are like a mix of the two styles above; they blend some of the best features of the Vava Voom and Red Cherri lashes into their design. They're slightly thicker than the Vava Voom lashes, but textured in a way which resembles them. They give your lashes a similar level of thickness as the Red Cherri lashes do, but in a more graduated manner. I think this shape suits my eyes nicely.
