TBD's Top Tips To Help You Look Hot In Glasses
I wear spectacles. When I first found out I needed glasses, back when I was 12 years old, I hated it. I still kind of have a love-hate relationship with my glasses, and the person that I am I can't even tolerate wearing contact lenses every day. So on most days I'm four eyes. The thing with glasses is, they can either make you look geeky, or they can make you look hot… it all depends on how you carry them. If you too are someone who can't stand the thought of wearing contacts daily, and want to know how to look hot in glasses, then read on!
Choose The Right Frame
The worst mistake you can make with spectacles is wearing a wrong frame. A frame that does not suit your face will stand out and make you look not-so-good. When at the optician take your time and choose a frame that goes well with your face; don't pick the first one you lay your eyes on. Also, take someone along with you who can give you their honest opinion, no matter how harsh.
Pick The Right Colour
Once you are done picking the right shape and size of frame for your face, go ahead and ask for colour options. If you are planning on making multiple frames, then play a little with colours and patterns, as you will have a frame that goes with all your outfits. However, if you can't be bothered with more than one frame, then stick to neutral colours like blacks, whites or darker shades that will go well on most of your outfits.
Go For The Thin
The higher eyesight number you have the thicker your glasses are going to be, right? Wrong! This was a thing of the past. With modern technology, it is possible to get slim glasses that won't magnify your eyes no matter how high your number is. It might cost you a bit more, but it is undoubtedly a good investment.
Wearing glasses really concentrates a lot of attention on your under eye area. If you have dark circles or spots below your eyes, then they will certainly be noticed. So keep a concealer handy, and hide away any imperfections. This will also make your eyes look brighter and more awake.
Grooming Those Brows
Whether you like it or not, wearing spectacles inadvertently causes your eye area to be under constant scrutiny. As such, it is a must to keep your eyebrows constantly groomed. Pluck away on any strays and make it point to get them threaded or waxed from time to time.
Play With Liner
Having glasses on is actually a good opportunity for you go crazy with your eyeliner. The eyeliner you apply will be toned down a little because of your glasses, giving you the opportunity to go big. The winged eyeliner will make you look playfully sexy, more so if you have cat-eye frames. So go ahead, and play it up!
No matter what kind of eye makeup you prefer, make sure it is done neatly. As I mentioned earlier, glasses means that your eyes will be under constant scrutiny; as such any imperfection in your eye makeup will stand out. Make sure it is neat and precise.

Forget Not Your Lips
In concentrating on your eyes don't give your lips a miss. A good bold lip colour will further accentuate the hot-in-glasses look. And if you are looking for a more playful approach, then try pink shades for your lips.
