A Simple Makeup Look


As a girl with glasses, I've often had problems finding makeup that doesn't disappear behind them. In this post I'll be showing you a super simple look that looks great on anyone, but especially bespectacled people. (Sorry if these pictures aren't very good, I've never tried to take photos of my own face before.)

You'll Need:

Three colors of grey eye shadow- light, medium, and dark (or use black)
Eye shadow brushes
Lip stick or lip gloss
Eyeliner


Step 1: Prep your face. Make sure your face is clean and ready for makeup.


Step 2: Apply your lightest grey in an arc from the inner corner of your eye to above, but not touching the outer corner. It should be thicker towards the outside edge and pretty close to your eyebrow.


Step 3: Apply the medium shade from the inner corner of your eye, arching down towards the outside. It will almost be a sideways diamond.


Step 4: Apply the darkest grey from the outside to the intersection between the light and medium shades. It should end in a point.


Step 5: Gently blend the edges of the colors so you can't see where one ends and another begins. Bonus: curl your eyelashes so your eyes look more open.


Step 6: Line the upper lid all the way across or just halfway. Add a little bit of a cat's eye. If you wear mascara, apply it now.


Step 7: Finish with a vibrant or sparkly shade of lip gloss or lip stick.


Voila, you look amazing. I especially love this look for parties or church. It's easy and the colors can be changed to compliment your outfit.


The nice thing about wearing glasses is you can get away with brighter colors of eye-shadow and not look overdone, because your glasses take away from the effect.

What do you think of this look? Do you have a favorite eye shadow color? Let me know in the comments.
