The Babor meets Silhouette Competition

28 May

As a make-upartist, I often feel make-up insecurities with women who wear glasses… Mostly about accentuated wrinkles and resized eyes.

But actually, you can experiment quite a lot with make-up! To guide you to a lovely look, I’ve got you some tips&tricks:

1. Your make-up depends on the size and colour of your frame: If you prefer to wear heavy and dark framed glasses, keep your make-up more natural and light. Frameless glasses give you more freedom to experiment.

Silhouette frameless glasses, for a light and free feeling!

2. Take care of your eyebrows! Make sure they’re in perfect condition and not covered by your spectacles.

3. When you’re far-sighted, your eyes might appear bigger. All details are enlarged, so they need to be perfect. Be very precise with mascara or eyeliner, ’cause we all know how messy that can get.

4. Shiny, shimmery eyeshadow in combination with glasses is a big no-no!

Babor Silky Soft Eyeshadow gives a fresh touch without being shimmery!

5. Avoid greasy foundation. This could leave ugly stains on your glasses and frame.

Perfect Finish Foundation is a compact foundation that gives you a subtle matifying finish.

6. Colourful lipstick is never a bad idea! It will bring balance in your face, ànd you’re on trend. Perfecto!
