Day-to-day I’m not generally the false lash kinda gal, however, if I’m heading ‘out-out’ I may add a few individual lashes or a strip lash depending on how I feel.
I’m new to this brand so I thought I would give them a go! I’m always interested in trying different brands and so I was excited to try these strip lashes from Threads Beauty Co. For these photos, I am wearing the Charleston lashes.
The packaging is bright red which stands out on the shelf! Neat little boxes with a tube lash adhesive included inside. Other brands, I’ve used the lash adhesive is often a separate purchase. I have two pairs, both the Red Cherri lashes and the Charleston Lashes. Personally, the Red Cherri lashes are a bit too bold for me but definitely, the Charleston are a more wearable option. I’m wearing these in the photos. As you can see they give a more natural look which is more me.
Is mostly down to trial and error and everyone has their own way of doing it. For me, I find the easiest way to apply this type of lash is to place a hand mirror on my lap. Looking downwards into the mirror I then place the strip into position using tweezers. I squeeze a tiny amount of adhesive onto the lash tray, wait a minute or so for it to become tacky. I then pick up the lash with tweezers and slide the strip end through the adhesive so that way only a tiny amount is used.
Recently I’ve seen YouTube videos of other bloggers wearing their fake lashes ‘under’ their natural lashes.
This is quite tricky and not something I have patience for. However, from what I’ve seen it does give a nice natural look so might be worth another attempt when I have more time (and patience).
The adhesive works well and held the lashes in place so no issues there. It dries clear which is always good! I actually really like these lashes and would definitely wear them for a night out in future.
