Contacts can be uncomfortable to wear and can irritate your eyes, causing them to become red and puffy. Thankfully, geek is now chic, and these days, glasses come in a myriad designs, styles, and colors.
With a few simple pointers, you can rock the glasses look. Just follow these 5 ways to look great in glasses for your wedding.
Find a Great Pair
The first step to looking amazing in glasses is to find a style that complements the shape of your face in a color that works well with your skin tone and hair color.
Complement That Great Pair with Great Hair
Choose a wedding hairstyle that allows your glasses to shine. Long and loose hairstyles look fabulous with glasses, but an off-the-face style will let your glasses be the star.
Make Up Those Eyes
To make your eyes pop behind those frames, do not skip eye makeup. Make sure you are optimizing shadow, liner, and mascara. Use eye shadow that complements the color of your frames, and go for gray or dark brown liner. Keep your liner neat and precise, not smudgy, Groom your eyebrows well, and consider using brow mascara, too.
Use an Eyelash Curler
Not only do eyelash curlers make lashes look stunning, curling them will keep them from hitting your lenses. When applying mascara, focus more on the roots than the tips to keep them from straightening back out.
It is sad but true: Glasses can highlight under-eye bags, wrinkles, and dark circles. Thankfully, someone created concealer! Lightly dot concealer on problem spots and gently blend with a makeup sponge or your ring finger.
