There are plenty of makeup tips and tutorials for girls who wear glasses. And even Bobbi Brown, the MUA queen herself, has released an exclusive collection of flattering frames designed just for ladies who can’t leave the house without lippy or mascara. She’s also offered some awesome makeup tips to help out anyone who is completely lost when it comes to creating an everyday look to complement their specs.
But what about winter eye makeup? We all know that our colour palettes change as soon as Autumn arrives and there’s always a lot more focus on the eyes and lips for evening/party looks. So here are some handy tips for the perfect winter inspired eye makeup…
Up Your Brow Game
AW makeup is all about the brows. Well-groomed eyebrows can make or break your look and are essential for framing your face. If you want to stand out rather than blend into the background with your geek chic specs, make sure you condition, brush and fill in your brows.
Go bold with the Savannah 2439 in red and black to focus all the attention on those beautiful peepers!
The winter party season is finally here, so it’s time to get the smokey eye palette out! A dramatic smudged shadow can sometimes look a bit overdone during the summer months but for AW, it’s perfect. And it can be teamed with a nude lip or a bold lip – both look gorgeous for the cold season.
If you’re heading out for a special occasion, give yourself a boost of glamour and femininity with some cateye frames, like the Carvela CAR006 Carly glasses.
Go for Falsies
As Youtuber Melissa Samways knows, winter eye makeup is all about the eyes. She combines an exaggerated retro catflick with luscious false lashes to add drama to her eye area.
She keeps the rest of her makeup simple so all the focus is on her gorgeous Bambi eyes, giving her that seductive specs appeal – plus it’s a classic makeup look that is suitable for day to night. So versatile! And looks fab with a pair of timeless black frames.
Don’t be Afraid of Glitter
Winter evenings can be easily glammed up with a dab of glitter. You don’t need a lot to achieve a chic party effect and it’s perfect for an office party, a festive event, or just for drinks with friends.
Team with some simple frames like these stylish Hallmark 8813 frames to make your eyes really pop. Available in 2 classic colours.
