Guest Contribution : Accessorize Your Eyes: Eyewear 101

If you wear eyeglasses, you know how important it is to get the right look for the image you want to project. From fun-loving to intellectual, eyewear styles can enhance your eyes, brows, and overall face to go with whatever fashion trend you are wearing. That is why it is often helpful to buy glasses online ( so many options!) so you have more than one pair of glasses on hand to go with a variety of looks that will match your mood on a given day.

However before you snag a pair of shades online, at least make sure you try them on virtually at the very least. If possible find the pairs you like online and find a retail store that carries them physically to make sure your purchase is what you expect.

Playful.

If you are ready to have fun, pick out a pair of oval-shaped shades supported by a wire rim frame to go with your casual style. Your eyelashes can be lengthened in a fun-loving shade like blue or violet to go with a pair of eye shadows like cream and aqua that will make your eyes pop, no matter their color. Rosy cheeks and lips will finish your eye-catching look that is great for sports events, parties, and social gatherings of all kinds.

Sophisticated.

When dressing for a professional job, make sure your eyewear and makeup project the look that will get you noticed by the right people for the best reasons. A pair of square or rectangular glasses in dark or tortoiseshell frames will help to make you look wise and ready to tackle any projects that come your way. Pastel eye shadow with medium-length lashes that are textured with brown or black mascara will consolidate the impression that you are ready for work while maintaining your feminine distinctiveness. Natural foundation with a soft tint to the cheeks and lips add to the polished look you are coordinating for daytime appearances.

Innovative.

For events that invite your creative side to come out, you can afford to be a little more daring with your makeup and eyewear. Try a shade lighter or darker of foundation as long as it still looks natural. Brush your cheekbones with a unique shade of blush, such as gold or rust, to accent your progressive, fashionable outfit. Line your eyes with a coordinating pencil or liquid or dot liner in the spaces between your lashes. Add extension lashes for a noticeable difference and brush them with a unique shade of mascara, such as midnight blue or violet. For eyewear consider tinted lenses that are circular, rectangular, or square, perhaps oversized or undersized, with no frames, clear frames, or colored frames that match your cosmetics and go with your outfit.

Glamorous.

Pull out the stops for your special celebration, whether it be a holiday, a birthday, or a special event like a wedding, cruise, or concert. Make it memorable by wearing a lightly tanned foundation accented by plum cheeks and lipstick. Apply gold eye shadow and consider wearing a faux nose jewel or brow jewel. Depending on the tone of the event, you can wear sequin dots in gold or a coordinating shade above your eyebrows, which should be plucked neatly and brushed with a soft brown shade. Add a rich brown eyeliner to enhance the gold shadow, and for your lash extensions apply gold-tinged dark mascara, or tip the ends with golden eye shadow. Eyewear can be slender rectangular lenses in clear or light-colored frames, perhaps with gold edging.

Eyewear can complete your look, no matter the occasion, to consolidate your cosmetic effect and make your eyes stand out. Since most of us play a variety of roles and attend numerous events of different kinds, it is a good idea to have more than one pair of eyeglasses that can complement a differing look. Eyeglasses definitely make or break a mood. If you want some tips on how to find good quality glasses and other things this time of year you can start by checking this article out.
