Reading Glasses Supplier Dishes Advice
If you wear makeup and glasses, you may be used to thinking of the makeup as cosmetics and the glasses as a crutch. Don’t! You must have noticed how fabulous all the eyeglass models in eyewear ads look. That’s because the makeup and the eyeglass frames are selected to work together. Picture the glasses as a frame for your eyes - now you can begin to realize how your eye makeup and frames can accentuate each other. With the array of eyeglass styles at great prices from I Heart Eyewear, you can have several frames to play with for a variety of effects. Don’t forget to pick up a pair of makeup glasses to make applying your makeup a cinch.
The most basic point is to match the weight of your frames with the drama of your makeup. Wire frames call for a subtler palette and daintier lines, while bold frames stand up to daring lipstick and, if you want, fearless eye makeup. Large frames give you a large canvas for eyeshadow; take advantage of it.
For colored frames (other than red!), seek eyeliner that picks up frame color. For large frames, use an under-eye concealer that brightens the eye. This counteracts both the frame’s shadow and the effect of reflected light off the lenses. Another great brightening effect is a touch of white pencil blended in at the inner corner of the eye and along the lower eyelid close to the tear duct.
The type of lenses also makes a difference in your makeup. Reading glasses, especially large ones, can amplify the effect of what’s behind them, so you need to make your color selection with special care and use a light touch. Black eyeliner may look more intense than you want. A colored liner can warm up your eyes or give a touch of cool brightness. Smudging the liner along your eyelid gives a lighter effect than eyeshadow. Conversely, glasses to correct myopia (nearsightedness) make your eyes look slightly smaller; playing up the eyeliner and eyeshadow can counteract this effect.
Eyelashes with mascara look great under glasses. It’s important that they not touch the lenses, and you want to be sure the formula is waterproof and flake-proof. False eyelashes generally just don’t work. Clumpy mascara close to the lash ends looks heavy in glasses and is a smudge risk, so keep mascara light toward the ends. It you have long lashes to start with, an eyelash curler used before the mascara can add drama while keeping the lashes from grazing the lenses.
There are two approaches to foundation at the nose bridge where the glasses touch. Some wearers prefer to add a touch of beauty balm cream or foundation here to avoid the appearance of red marks when the glasses are taken off. Another option is to omit foundation here (and where glasses touch the cheek, for big frames). In any case, it’s clear that too much foundation where the glasses rest will give you trouble. Excess can be removed with a damp makeup sponge. Setting powder helps in the nose bridge area whether you use foundation or not; it keeps foundation from adhering to the frames, or if there’s no foundation, it absorbs oils that can make glasses slip.
Don’t neglect your eyebrows, which get more attention when you wear glasses because they parallel the top line of the glasses frame. When they are properly shaped and defined, they complete your polished, chic look.
