The eyes are the window to the soul. Most people will look into your eyes when you are talking, the ones that look below them, probably aren’t worth your time! If you are suffer from eye sight issues then you may find it harder to make the most of your peepers. However, with my handy guide you I hope to inspire you to embrace your glasses, make the most of your make up and be more confident than ever.
There has been a massive trend in girls faking it when it comes to glasses. With the popular geek chic look came the oversized frames we saw on Velma in Scooby Doo. So if you have to wear your specs, make sure you find a real statement pair and stop people in their tracks. Depending on your face shape there are loads of subtle changes in designs which can make or break your look, so head to your frame store and try on as many as you can. Express yourself.
Contact lenses can be an option for some glasses wearers. There are brilliant types for everyone from the super soft to ones you leave in at night. An optician will talk you through what will work with your eye problems as some people won’t be able to enjoy the freedom that contacts bring. For those who can you can even get coloured lenses to enhance your natural eye colour, making your gentle green eyes into a stunning set of rich emerald ones. Get creative and ask for some non prescription sample colours to test at home.
Laser Eye Surgery
Laser eye surgery is another option for some people who really don’t like wearing frames and can’t get to grips with lenses. Although there have been some eye surgery claims highlighted in the news, it is a relatively safe procedure which can really change your life. Talk to your doctor and optician to find out if this could be the route for you.
Makeup And Your Glasses
Trying to apply makeup when you wear specs is one of the most frustrating things in the world. Try using a magnifying mirror to help focus on your eyes. Use eyelash curlers to curl the top of your lashes back to prevent them hitting on your lenses (more annoying that it sounds) Sometimes you will notice that the glass in your frames can highlight darkness under your eyes. You will need to choose a skin tone correcting concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your foundation. If that doesn’t give you the effect you want then go for a peach or pink corrector which will counter the purple tone.
Get Your Brows Done
And finally, don’t forget that your frames draw attention to your brows so be sure to keep the arches neat, stray hairs plucked and fill in any gaps with a good brow pencil.
Experiment with colour and be confident. Girls with glasses look mysterious, intelligent and sexy so hold your head high, be proud that some girls are faking it to get your look and never hold back!
