They used to say that men don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses but this is quite passé now. Today’s generation has a mind of their own and does not follow the dictates of times gone by. Glasses of all kinds and shapes are in fashion and the old styles of the 1960s and 1970s are back in vogue. Here are 21 superb health and beauty tips for girls who wear glasses.
1 – Using Thin Eyeliner
As a general rule, you should match your eyeliner to the kind of frames you are wearing. So thin frames would demand thinner eyeliner and vice versa. It just looks that much better.
2 – Using Smudged Eyeliner
One way of making your-self stand out from the crowd is to use smudged eyeliner. Applying this to either the upper or lower lid will definitely help in attracting attention.
3 – How to Shape your Brows
Always try to shape your brows according to the shape of the glasses you are wearing. This not only helps you look more coordinated but also enhances your style for a complete look.
4 – All the Way Around
If your eyes are small compared to the frames you are wearing, one trick to make your eyes appear larger and more expressive is to put eyeliner all the way around. This is the Gothic look that is popular in some cities among the youth.
5 – Brightening up the Eyes
If you find you are in low spirits and that your eyes need some kind of brightening, be sure to apply some powder or soft lightening cream that will work to this effect. You will look and feel better too.
6 – Using Mascara
One of the worrying points for ladies was that if applying mascara would stick to their frames or lenses, but the ones available these days are relatively safe and do not cause any concern on this account.
7 – Highlighting the Cheekbones
Cheekbones are one of the points most highlighted by models in their makeup repertoire, so don’t be afraid to touch up this area with a highlighter or some light foundation.
8 – Light Eyeliner
It’s all about how you look in the mirror. If your eyes appear too large because of your glasses, using lighter eyeliner and not going around the eyes will give a more natural effect.
9 – Great Complexion
How you match your makeup to your complexion is one of the main arts of looking and appearing beautiful. A good foundation will help highlight your complexion.
