I grew up wearing glasses and had no problem with it until I hit my teens!!!!

Not so cool.

Not convenient.

I certainly did not like the ‘harmless’ name calling I ‘overheard’….

Well girls let me tell you…… wearing glasses is VERY cool – they can be a fashion accessory, a style statement, your signature even if you don’t actually need them to see more clearly….. buy a pair with simple glass/plastic lenses and you are good to go…

Choose the shape of the frame, the colour and size ….. retro, geeky, hippy, nerdy … express yourself!!!

There are no real rules on make-up techniques for those of us who wear glasses it depends more importantly on your style and you feeling your most confident.

Here are my tips from the top….

  • Choose glasses to complement the shape of your face.
  • Make sure you have tidy groomed eyebrows.
  • Eyeliner in gel, pencil or liquid form on your top lashes looks fab…. either a skinny line close to the lash line or thicker and more smudgy on the eyelid.
  • A pop of rosy blush on the apples of your cheeks balances and brightens the face.
  • Go for it with mascara but comb out any clumps as your glasses magnify slightly so there is no hiding any goopy blobs of mascara.
  • A light dab of concealer/highlighter under your eyes is very flattering and brightens the eye area.
  • Bright lips or just simple gloss – accentuate your mouth to offset and balance your glasses.Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 11.55.10 AM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 11.16.12 AM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 11.17.03 AM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 11.18.05 AM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 12.05.47 PM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 12.09.02 PM Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 12.12.10 PM
