Brides in glasses

Glasses are very big right now, and I love them.
I lately got asked a lot about eye makeup for glass wearers and also just had a bride who decided to wear her glasses on her wedding.
Glasses can look stunning on weddings, as long as you do your bridal makeup accordingly with enough definition around the eyes. Check out this amazing woodland wedding, the groom is wearing glasses in some of the shots too.

Most brides skip their glasses and go for contact lenses or even considering laser eye surgery to become fully independent from their specs before their big day.
If you want to rock your specs on you big day, here are few makeup tips:

To make your eyes pop, when wearing glasses, you want to use a little more makeup then you usually would.
Warm shades tend to look nicer underneath your frames, stay away from cool grey shades.
A light wash of colour all over the lid and a soft definition with a darker shade through the crease.
Avoid any dark colours and eyeliners underneath your eye, when you are wearing glasses.
Keep the focus on the upper lid and use a eyeliner along the lash line for even more definition.
Apply a generous amount of mascara. Individual false lashes can look great too.
Groom and define your eyebrows and you are ready to go!

I hope this helped. Feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.
And let me know: Would you wear your glasses on your wedding day?
