Four Eyes

IMG_1903

I wanted to try a new makeup look for my glasses and this is how it turned out!

SHOPPING TIP: I don’t have optical insurance, so glasses can get pricey. I live in a college town and called around to a few different eye doctors and ended up finding one that gave student discounts. Make a few calls and you could save some big bucks!

Eyes: I used my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink all over the lid and deepened the crease with the middle shade in this Wet n Wild Eye Shadow Trio. I lined the outer two thirds of my lash line with the same brown. On the inner third I used this Wet n Wild cream shadow pencil in Pixie to really brighten up my eyes. I applied two thick coats of Covergirl Lash Blast (waterproof) to make sure my lashes looked nice and thick.

Concealer: First, I swept away any shimmery fallout I might have had from the shadow. I applied Benefit’s hydrating concealer Fake Up (light) to eliminate discoloration. I set this with elf’s Eye Brightener in Buff.

Brows: Stick with the brow routine that works best for you, and perhaps consider taking an extra minute to define and darken. I used Benefit’s Gimme Brow in medium/deep.

Cheeks/Lips: I used Benefit’s Hervana for a healthy, pink flush. On my lips I used Revlon’s Colorburst lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake.

Overall, the look is more shimmery than what I would typically wear during the day, but behind glasses, I think it works well. Have fun my fellow four eyes!
