A pair of glasses emphasizes your eyes, but when it comes to makeup, it’s not eyeshadow, eyeliner or mascara that provides the perfect accompaniment to your stylish frames. Instead, it’s lipstick! According to Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog, bright lipstick is the perfect complement to a pair of geek-chic glasses, no matter what shape or color they are. So how can you pull off the look?
First, you’ll need to tone it down when it comes to your eyes and cheeks. Skip bright blush and flashy eyeshadow looks – you want all of the attention to be on your glasses and lips. Go with a peachy blush, which has the most natural finish for any skin tone. For your eyes, simply use brown or black eyeliner like Youngblood – Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen – Noir to define the shape of your peepers, then sweep on a coat or two of mascara.
Now for the fun part! Choose a shade of lipstick that pairs perfectly with your frames. It could be black glasses with orange lipstick, bright pink lips with tortoise-shell specs or even red with red! It’s up to you to figure out which pairing works the best.
To make sure your lipstick is extra bright, use lip liner to make the color resistant to fading and apply two coats of the lipstick, being sure to blot with a tissue in between.
