Makeup For Glasses

Okay, I really look like a nerd there. Please excuse the semi-wet hair with the frizzy ends. I'd just washed it, and dashed out the door. These are car pics, and I didn't plan to post them, but I ended up really liking the makeup, especially the blush which I applied a lot more than usual.
Now I don't need to wear glasses, I only wear them "for fashion" Although, my left eye is quite weak. If I cover my right eye, things get blurry, especially when I look far. It's also the eye that turns to Tokyo, when I'm looking at China. It's a weird eye.
What I learned? More is more. I think four-eyed beauties can get away with overdone make-up. I did my eyes a whole lot darker than they appear in these photos. Lips have got to be bright, so skip the n*de lippies.



Products Used: 
  • Blush- I mixed MAC Peaches & Fleur Power (doesn't the combo look pretty?) Applied it under my cheekbones, so the frames wouldn't cover it. 

Sorry I forgot to click a pic with my eyes looking down so you can see the eyeshadow 

If you're wondering what's the deal with that red airbag at the back of the car, we were going away for the weekend- this was back in Delhi.
How many of you wear glasses? Do let me know if you want a proper eye makeup tutorial & more tips. Another excuse for me to get another pair of glasses ;)
Ooh.....once, a SA in MAC Kuala Lumpur was wearing a pair I really liked- rectangular frames & equally thick on all sides. I complimented her, and asked her where she got them from. She giggled, made a nervous hand gesture, and mumbled some gibberish which I put together as "This old thing? I don't remember!". Oh, but I knew she didn't want to tell. Hmph, women!

  21. Whoever said guys dont make passes at girls who wear glasses must not have seen you! You look so pretty even with the glasses. I really love the way you've done your nails. Perhaps you can do a post on that?

    1. Aww...u think? Hehe... Thank you for the awesome compliment! The nails are not ghard to do actually. Just 2 coats of the coral polish, leave to dry, then apply the gold glitter on 3/4 of the nails. Optional- top coat on top.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
