Tips for the four eyes amongst us

I'm not even exaggerating when I say I've been a four eyes for as long as I can remember. These days I switch between specs and contact lenses and normally save my specs for lazy days. As I've gotten older I've learnt what suits me and my glasses. Excuse the fact that I look like an alien, I sport the alien look far too often these days, I think I've just got a big head.

Hair Up Since I have quite dark features, along with black frames I find that wearing my hair down can overpower my face. I like a simple high pony or top knot to brighten up my face.
Bold lip I definitely favour a pink lip over a classic red lip so when I'm wearing my specs I like to go all out on a bright shade that really packs a punch and stands out just as much as my frames.
Strong brows Note: strong, tidy brows. Like I said I have quite dark features naturally, but it makes such a difference when my brows are tidy and well groomed. I don't do it to make them a statement but so they don't get lost behind my frames.
Styling There is a fine line when styling your glasses between getting it right and trying too hard, and consequently looking like a hipster. With having my hair up as well as my glasses on I tend to sway more towards button down shirts or high neck tops. Something that wouldn't necessarily look as good if I had my hair down.

  1. Great post Lindsey, shame you don't have social network share buttons otherwise I would.

  2. These were great tips! I too wear glasses and agree that a bold lip just finishes off the look perfectly (:


  3. Thee tips are amazing! I often struggle with my glasses since they just don't go with every outfit, but it's so nice to rest my eyes a bit and stay away from the contacts every now and then x

  4. I'm exactly the same, I swap between contacts & glasses. I find my glasses make my ears stick out when I have my hair up, makes me look like I have massive ears! :') x
