BEAUTY BAR: Beauty Through the Looking Glass(es)

Glasses are an often ignored element in the beauty industry. What can Fashionistas do when we have the perfect eyeshadow look but must wear eyeglasses? This is a problem I can certainly relate to. This look spoke to me because glasses can add to an outfit as opposed to taking away from it.

The reason I love this beauty look is the simple cat eye behind her glasses. A cat eye is not only my go-to everyday look, but it adds a beautiful eye catching moment that can be easily seen through glasses. Your eyeshadow may fall behind a pair of glasses, but a cat eye will accentuate the shape of your eyes and bring out the features of your face that can be lost behind frames.

Glasses can be tricky to style! They come in many colors and shapes, and can take away from or mesh poorly with a beauty look. I have purchased multiple pairs of glasses so they would not clash with outfits (not necessarily the practical option). Glasses aren’t often thought of as an accessory, which is exactly what they are. I’ve seen an emerging trend of celebrity and social media stars wearing fake glasses, paired with a bold lip to add a new element to their look. Don’t be afraid to treat your glasses as an accessory and rock an up do with a bold lip to make sure they get noticed.

My last tip is to add on more accessories. Play up the fact that you’re wearing cute glasses by adding a watch, as seen above. Add your favorite earrings and a necklace; show the world you aren’t afraid to accessorize! This can draw attention to your glasses and your eyes which allows you to play up the look. Glasses are something to be embraced and can supplement simple, beautiful makeup!
