How does that old saying go? “Boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses”? This Fashionista certainly shows us that the cliché’ is well and truly out-dated. With top designers including Alex Perry,Tommy Hilfiger and Karen Millen now producing prescription glasses, every girl can stay fashion focused.
It is clear to see that the outfit is wonderful, especially the standout pieces like the scruffy jacket and the red tote, which work to embrace the Melbourne winter and execute a burst of colour, but what is truly exceptional is the beauty that this Fashionista brings to her look. The high ballerina bun looks elegant and classy and the shimmery eye-makeup is flawless. To achieve these eyes you need to combine both a dark and a shimmery eye-shadow. Maybelline's ‘Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow in Charcoal will create this look with careful blending. You must also use a volumizing mascara, I recommend Max Factor;s ‘2000 Calorie Mascara’. And lastly, it is essential that you highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a light-coloured or white eye-liner, which gives it the final pop! Rimmel's ‘Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Pure Whiite’ will do the trick to a tee. And why not make this look a little special by dusting a light shimmer powder over the entire eyelid and under the eye? Try ‘Star Dust Loose Shimmer Powder’ by Laura Mercier.
So for those of us who wear our prescription glasses in shame, we are clearly not doing ourselves any favours. Take a page from this Fashionistas’ book and embrace your specs with sophisticated hair and makeup.
