Any fellow spectacle wearers about who can advise me?! For New Year I'm going to a fairly smart event, not black tie but cocktail dresses and heels etc. I hardly ever go to these things and have just realised I don't think glasses really mix with smart eveningwear! I can't wear contacts so my choices are either go without and risk blanking people I know/squinting across the table, or wear them and look a bit odd? These are my glasses and i am planning to wear a simple black sleeveless dress. Also bonus question - if you suggest glasses, have you got any tips for makeup with glasses?!
Your glasses will look great with everything. Regarding make up, I don't think you have to do anything specially for the glasses - if you are unsure just check your appearance with glasses on and amend if needed.
Gah I wrote a massive reply then was faffing around looking for a photo to attach. I wear glasses full time. If I dont I can't see and would trip over (at best) . That wouldn't look very stylish or glam. This will totally out me but what the heck. This is me going to a very glam black tie ball. I still felt attractive in my specs! (In fact I now look weird without them)
I think your glasses are really lovely, and will look great with a dress.
What does the glasses with makeup tutorial say? The sound doesn't work when I play it. I wear glasses with makeup every day - the only issue i have is that the makeup goes onto my glasses, so I have to give them a quick wipe at lunchtime, and check that my nose looks okay .
Your glasses will look completely fine. Especially with a black dress. Its better to wear glasses than not be able to see! In terms of make up, maybe a standout lipstick? But I don't think you need special makeup with glasses. You will look great kenworthington you look incredible there!
Thanks all for the replies. Kenworthington you look great, that has really inspired me! I will watch the tutorial for makeup inspiration, although I'm definitely leaning towards a strong lipstick and simple eyes as the glasses seem to dull the effect of eyeshadow etc.
