The following advertisement perfectly illustrates how wearing sunglasses completely transform your personality.
Advertisement by Oogmerk Opticians
This is an interesting print advertisement campaign launched by Oogmerk Opticians in Belgium. The campaign aims at conveying how wearing glasses of the firm changes personality of person or people perspective to person who is wearing it. The campaign apparently stressing on how the product helps enhancing the personality of a person. Advertisements are showing simple sketches of person in two frames one shows a person with inferior social rank and the second parts shows how these glasses dramatically enhances the personality of the person.
The presentation of the campaign is no doubt impressive and very clear due to its simple visualization of the idea even if the idea is not considered great. Eyebrows were raised whether these glasses can change the perspective of a person towards other who is using it. However, the campaign seems to be just appropriately exaggerating the product benefit. The tag line of the campaign reads, ‘Get the respect you deserve’. The campaign is the brainchild of LG&F Brussels, Belgium.
How to add more to your bespectacled look?
There was a time when wearing spectacles used to feel as a curse, hiding your beautiful eyes behind that boring pair of geeky glasses. Now the times have changed, as there is no dearth of super cool and gorgeous glass frames that you can use to adorn your face and of course to serve the purpose that they are meant for.
One more thing you can do to look sexy in geeky glasses is to wear appropriate eye makeup. If you find doing it hard, then just go through this article and find what all you must do to look sexy wearing spectacles.
1. Keep it simple
Simplicity is the key to look gorgeous with your spectacles on. Be it your eye makeup, or the frame you pick, try to keep it simple. These days you can see people wearing glasses with colorful frames, bold and chunky designs but they do not look good on everybody. Pick colors and frames suiting your personality, and only if you strongly feel you can carry them off well.
Coming to the eye makeup, you should avoid too much of it and use neutral colors to highlight your eyes. Suppose you pick a heavy eye makeup and a chunky frame, they will certainly clash and things will not look good. Create a balance between your makeup and the type of frame and you will look gorgeous.
2. Balance it out
If you happen to choose chunky, thick frame for your face, remember that minimal makeup would go on your face. You need not create any more drama using makeup on your face, or else you might look no less than a clown. You can choose a bright colored lip color and a neutral and light eye makeup for the ideal look. On the other hand, if the frame chosen by you is small and delicate then you have ample room for playing well and creative a good deal of drama with your eye makeup.
3. Curl up your lashes
Curled up eyelashes look great, they enhance the beauty of your eyes. In this case, more than beauty curled up lashes have a much more purpose to perform, i.e. to prevent lashes hitting the lens of your glasses. It is a very annoying feeling when lashes keep hitting the lens.
4. Care for your brows
Usually women who wear glasses stop giving much of attention to their eyebrows, as they feel their glasses eclipse them so no point caring for them. Well, this is the biggest mistake you can do because your eyebrows play a significant role in making you look geeky or gorgeous with your spectacles on.
They frame your face, as in well-shaped brows enhance your overall features and make up for the limitations a glass frame brings onto your face. You can use mascara, eyebrow pencil or powder to darken them and to give them an ideal shape that they do not have naturally.
5. Consider your lens type
Those of you who do not know or never realized, the type of lens you wear has a lot to do with your eye makeup. Short-sighted and long-sighted are the two types of lens that have their own eye makeup requirements, which you must consider in order to look gorgeous when bespectacled as well. The long-sighted lens makes your eyes appear larger and the short-sighted makes them look small. Darker shades go well with the long-sighted lens type, while the bright shades are worth your choice if you wear a short-sighted lens.
Bespectacled women usually feel they cannot look as lovely as they look without their glasses on. Well, this is only a myth, as with the proper selection of frames and application of makeup, you can look extremely gorgeous, just like you look without them.
