Those who need to wear eyeglasses know that it is so important to pick a style that complements not just face shapes but also personalities. This is why we put a premium on quality and design. The optical glasses from Bolon Eyewear make it easy for us to choose one that fits us perfectly — both in the physical and the style aspects — especially since they value individuality.
Another way we can let our personalities shine is through makeup. And while it may seem like a challenge to wear a made-up face when you have eyeglasses on, there are tried-and-tested combinations of styles and colours that you know will always work. Here are five makeup artist-approved ways to pair your glasses with your lipstick.
Pair red lips to cat-eye glasses
Cat-eye frames give off retro vibes. The ‘50s were big on pointed tip frames. Another thing the ‘50s were big on was red lipstick. Makeup artist Armand Beasley says take your lens as a cue and go full retro. This modern take on a cat-eye frame is perfect for a new vintage vibe.
Pair bright lips to bold frames
Contrast is always great when pairing your eyewear with your lip colour, says Stila Cosmetics pro makeup artist Sarah Lucero. You should always try to strike a balance to create a cohesive look. That said, a bold frame — like this square pair from Bolon — would look great with a bold lip, according to Lucero. So don’t be afraid to pair your fun-shaped frames with a bright lip colour like fuchsia or magenta.
