Today I wanted to start something different than what I usually talk about. I personally wear glasses all the time. I feel that
while they are something that is medically necessary they are a glimpse into my personality and love of fashion. I mean if its
on your face every day it has to be fabulous. So I was thinking let’s talk about the different kinds of glasses and which
shapes really help enhance beauty rather than hide you! So here we go the Cat Eye.
Classic yet full of sass this style has been worn by iconic celebrities such as Marlyn Monroe and used by cutting edge
fashion designers like Tom Ford.
Your Best Face Foward: Cat Eye’s look great on round faces. Glasses with a clear bridge can make
your eyes appear wider while adjustable nosepads can prevent frames from resting on fuller
cheeks. One of my new favorite glass shops Bon Look says, ” Identifying your face shape is the key to choosing your
perfect frames. If you’ve got a round face shape, you have fuller cheeks, a wide forehead and a rounded chin and your ace
is usually proportional in width and length. Sharpen your soft features with bold, angular lines. Rectangle, square and even
some cateye frames look spectacular on you. Beware styles that sit too low on your face; the
bottom of the frame should sit just above your cheekbones.”
The right pair of glasses can make or break your look, but what about the makeup you wear underneath? If you have a
more round face in additon to some cat eye frames contouring is a great way to accentuate your cheeck bones and highligt
your eyes. (Next post we will talk about the importance of great eyebows and how to fill them in to get the best shape for
you.)Frames can sometimes cast dark shadows around the eyes, blending a lighter foundation down the center of your
nose and under the eye makes your eyes pop and highlight on top of your cheekbones will draw more attention toward the
eyes. Urban Romance suggest’s some great makeup tips for glasses and, “Contouring your cheeksbones adds
more structure, emphasizing the middle of your face and reinforcing focus on the eyes.”
Are you eye wear obsessed too? What do you do to keep your style with glasses looking fabulous?
