Makeup tips for glasses-wearers
Your choice of glasses makes a fashion statement of who you are to the world, furthering that by combining your frames with makeup produces a look that is uniquely yours. While social distancing and mask wearing are becoming part of our daily lives, dressing up your eyes is more important than ever to highlight your features and personalize your style.
Silhouette’s wide array of eyewear offers a timeless accessory that doesn’t go out of style but complementing your choice of glasses with on-trend makeup will give your eyes a modern, playful look that you’ll want to sport all year long.
Whether you like experimenting with a bold color palette or prefer a nude, minimal complexion, makeup artist Bianca Hartkopf gives valuable advice on how to achieve the perfect look that matches your mood as well as your favorite frames.
Dare to pair blue eyelids with the nuanced colors of these rimless eyewear to show off the natural radiance of your eyes. The gradient blue lenses of the Titan Dynamics Contour will accentuate this eye-catching makeup completed with a gentle gloss on the cheeks and lips to add an elegant finishing touch.
Bianca’s tip: If color blocking is too much for you, use a mascara in a blue hue on upper and lower lashes.
Neutral makeup and minimal, rimless eyewear create a lovely contrast to matte red lips defined by a seductive lip liner. Classic frames such as the Titan Dynamics Contour in shades of caramel go well with brown mascara on the upper lashes for a pared-back yet elegant look.
This glowing green makeup style will make your eyes stand out and highlight your colorful personality. With its transparent frames, the ultralight Infinity View tone down the impact of the eyeshadow, so don’t be afraid to go for a striking color while soft pink lips bring a softer balance.
Bianca’s tip: Use a base coat on the eyelid and color powder on top to make the look last longer.
Make your eyebrows the star of your glamorous look by prepping them with brow soap and using a brow pencil to add definition. Full-rim glasses such as the Infinity View give another dimension to this bare makeup style and emphasizes a mysterious character.
Play with the timeless shapes of the hexagonal Lite Spirit frames to create a daring makeup look that can be adjusted to your personal style. To achieve this adventurous look, draw a line along the base of the lashes and into a dynamic angular shape diagonally above the outer corner of the eye and back along the top of the eyelid.
Bianca’s tip: Use a liquid liner pen to define this dramatic shape.
Build upon the graphic trend to create a more retro look by pairing an expressive makeup with circular eyewear, like the rounded shape from the Lite Spirit collection. The precise line is extended beyond the outer corner of the eye and intense black mascara brings an extra layer of intensity.
If you want to let your frames be the main focus of your look, your skin tone should be radiant and flawless. Start with a moisturizing cream and a good foundation, then add a touch of blush color on the lips and cheeks to warm up your look. Finish with a spray mist for extra freshness before pairing with your choice of frames.
Bianca’s tip: Use highlighter on top and in the corner of the eye to add dimension.
