Eyeglasses made a phenomenal come back and are looking chicer than ever!
Do you wear glasses? Here are some useful tips that will make your eyes pop behind the frames;
If you’ve ditched your contact lenses for the trendy look, play with your eyes but stick to neutral shadows, don’t use colored eyeshadows, neutral and earthy tones look the best. Focus on white, beige or light pink and peach for the light and earthy tones for the outer corners.
If you want to play, try a navy or burgundy liner for a pop of color.
Line your eyes
Eyeliner is a must when wearing glasses. The simple rule of thumb is the thicker the frame, the bolder the eyeliner.
If your eyes appear smaller behind the lenses, apply an eyeliner on the bottom lashes as well. Make sure to smudge it with a small contour brush.
Load it on! Apply a first coat all over the lashes and a second one close to the roots.
If you don’t like to use mascara make sure to curl your lashes.
Brighten up your under eyes
Don’t skip the concealer and use a touch of lightening powder or cream to brighten the area. It will direct the attention to your eyes.
Fill in your eyebrows
You always need to define your eyebrows when you wear glasses. Fill them in on the upper side to give your eyebrow a lift.
Pop a color on your lips
Get a chic and sophisticated look by applying a red, pink or orange lipstick.
