Makeup For Glasses: Bold Red Lips, Simple Eye Makeup + TIPS


                   For my gals with glasses, you can NEVER go wrong with simple eye makeup and BOLD red lips! Despite the common belief that one should wear BOLDER eye makeup such as winged eyeliner, and smokey medium toned shadow, I personally feel it fills up too much space in the lenses, and distracts from one's actual eyes, thus making them look SMALLER. This combination not only makes one's skin tone appear like ivory, due to the contrast between whichever red you choose and your skin tone, it also makes the eyes stand out, as not too much drama is going on, but just enough you look quite chic and dashing.  I hope you cuties enjoy and continue glamming on ;)!

Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
              GENERALLY, for people who wear glasses, it is recommended to use a matte foundation, with powder on the sides of the nose and under the eyes. I personally don't worry about this, since I use such a light amount of product on only problematic areas! 
L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow, Iced Latte (highlight)
Dose of Colors - Matte Liquid Lipstick, Merlot
Mac Cosmetics - Lipglass - Ruby Woo

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Auburn
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet: Tempera (all over lids - read below), Vermeer (highlight shade - again I stuck with my best undertone, a warm peach)
                  Depending on your skin tone, try brightening shades such as cream, eggshell, light beige as an all over lid color! These type of colors INSTANTLY bring light to the eyes and widen em' up without white eyeliner.  For me, Tempera which is a warm toned, peachy beige is the PURRFECT all over color :)! Speaking of white eyeliner on the waterlines, I personally am not a fan. Dark browns and bold blacks bring drama, and a well-defined finish to the eyes, while white, in my opinion, looks too animated for everyday wear!

                 Try to only define the top lashes to look elegant, and on the other hand, try to define both the upper and lower lashes for a full on lashy dramatic look!
