Beauty, style

the one with tips on eye glasses

If you’ve followed me on instagram (just do it already!) then you know I picked out new prescription eye glasses a couple weeks ago! I’ve had them for reals for about a week and I’m so happy with the ones I picked out . . . so I thought I would share the tips I used to pick out the perfect ones. photo 4

1. Color :: you want to pick a color that is going to contrast your skin tone, but also match most of your clothes. you don’t want to only have a pair of red eye glasses and then have to wear them while you have on a bright orange shirt. unless you enjoy looking like a flame. I love it when a fun, colorful girl has one brightly colored glasses and flowers in her hair – like Penelope on criminal minds. But that’s not my style so I lean towards more neutral colors. Since I’m pale I want something a little darker to contrast my skin tone – if you have a darker skin tone go for the lighter neutrals!

2. face shape :: again, you want to pick glasses that are going to contrast against your natural features to balance everything out. so if you have a square face go for rounder glasses – a rounder face go for rectangular glasses – oval faces go really well with butterfly shaped glasses.

3. proportion :: larger glasses seem to be in right now, and I really love the look obviously. but you have to be careful not to pick ones that are too large for your face. this isn’t sunglasses where you want to look like a bug to keep the rays out. you just want to see better. if you have a long face or bigger cheeks the bigger the glasses can be. this goes the same for width if you have a really wide face get wider glasses.

those are my tips, but ultimately it’s up to whatever YOU want and what YOU feel comfortable in.


most of us have our glasses for at least a year – and they can be pretty expensive – so I think it’s important to find ones that you feel really comfortable in and compliment your style and your face. anybody else have any other helpful tips to find good eye glasses?

If you're wondering this is not a sponsored post, my glasses are only for reading and driving so I chose a
pair (rather cheap) I liked from my local America's Best.

    I like those on you, pretty color. I think the shape is important, and for me, I have a narrow face, so I need smaller frames, 49/50.. that is something to keep in mind

    Those are super cute and you look quite lovely with them. I’d like to give those big frames a go but I feel like I’d look weird and like a fly. My face is kinda narrow.

    Those glasses are perfect on you! I’ve always secretly wished I had glasses. My vision has gotten worse in the past year and I’m actually excited to go to the eye doctor. ha!

    This is great. I recently had lasik, so no need for glasses anymore. But I always tried to keep face shape in mind when I used to wear them!!

      thank you! that’s awesome that lasik worked so well for you. I’ve thought about doing it myself, but my sight is improving somehow?
