I love love LOVE big nerdy glasses and when I posted up a photo of me wearing one, the gorgeous Sharlene from *I-Lashes asked if I could do a tutorial on how to do make up for glasses! And although this isn't really a tutorial, it's more like tips that I have for wearing make up with glasses.
1. I don't know if any of you guys know this but I LOVE big eyebrows and I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I think that with glasses, having brows that frame your face and your glasses is really important. Sometimes the glasses take focus, especially if it is a thicker frame but if you have strong eyebrows, it helps with making everything balanced.
2. Define your eyes. When I wear glasses, I think that you lose definition of your eyes and it gets lost because your glasses take focus away. Putting a colour that is a couple of shades deeper than your own skintone in the crease and also under your lower lashes help give that definition back. I also like doing a black gel liner on my top lash line with a bit of a flick to open up the eyes.
3. Don't put on too much mascara. I don't know whether it's just me but usually when I wear mascara, my lashes touch the glass part and it annoys the living day light out of me. So when I wear mascara, I always just put on 1 coat of mascara on the top lashes and focus more mascara on the bottom lashes.
& voila! All these tips eventuate to the cam whoring below!
I was totally thinking of doing a video tutorial but I think I'm too shy and I don't even know how to set anything up but maybe in the future I will make one!! :)
