With the gorgeous selection of women’s glasses available today, it’s hard to believe there was ever a time where wearing them was considered uncool! There’s something very alluring about women who rock a great pair of specs, especially when they’ve got a trendy makeup look to match. Here are some of our favourite makeup stylings that best complement your glasses.
Ideal for women whose choice of glasses are big, bold and unique. Because the focus is often on your quirky specs, you needn’t do too much with your makeup. After applying your foundation, opt for nude colours for your eyelids, like NYX Professional Makeup Full Throttle Eyeshadow Easy on the Eyes, and a light brown eyeliner, like Infallible Crayon in Browny Crush by L’Oréal Paris for added effect. Finish the look with a bit of mascara, a hint of blusher, and Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Peach Kiss. You’ll have yourself a fresh-faced look perfect for day or night in no time.
This is a great look for women looking for a bit more than a natural look – one that complements their trendy frames. The best way to achieve this is to play around with colour on the eyelid. A purple or mauve shade seen in products like Maybelline’s Diamond Glow Eyeshadow in Purple Drama is ideal for any eye colour, and draws attention to all the right places. Apply colour only to the lid, then use a black mascara like Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection for definition. Finish the look with a nude lip so the focus remains upstairs.
Sometimes, your specs are all you need for a beautiful look. That, and the perfect pout! For this look, the focus is on your lips – and the brighter, the better! Start by applying your foundation. Try L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation, then add a touch of mascara. Finish this picture-perfect styling with Lancôme’s Rouge in Love Lipstick, which combines vibrant colour with a feather-light texture that lasts up to six hours.
While these are just a few looks that best complement your specs, there are so many more ways to play with your makeup, for a look that’s uniquely yours. Before you begin experimenting though, it’s worth finding out what makeup mistakes to avoid when wearing glasses.
