Okay, really random post but I thought that I’d share this video on my blog ’cause I thought it was something you don’t see every day from beauty gurus, i.e. Tanya Burr shares her tips on how to wear make-up when also wearing glasses.
Thanks to my past eye ulcer debacle (which is related to this post about wearing glasses), I haven’t been allowed to wear contacts for about two years plus now – which is a bummer ’cause since last year I’ve been experimenting and buying more make-up (probably ’cause I spent last year going for my graduation and interviews, so I felt like I wanted to be more of a grown-up and presentable). Glasses really kills my exploration in cosmetics ’cause my eyes are covered by my bulky glasses whenever I go out. So I’ve really been ‘meh’ about eye make-up and been ignoring that region of my face.
So this video was refreshing for me:
Summarising Tanya’s make-up tips:
- Neat eyebrows (no idea how to make my eyebrows neat, honestly, and have never been a fan of drawn eyebrows – need to find a means to meet halfway)
- Clean eyeshadow, i.e. contour and definitely no smoky eye
- Liquid eyeliner to frame the eyes so that they stand out more under your glasses
- Clean under eye (no mascara or eyeliner underneath)
Hope you found this video as useful as I did!
Till next time!
