Glasses seem to be one of the latest must- have accessories for fall! Just one look at the runways of New York Fashion Week and it’s clear that glasses are trending. Some designers have even made clear lenses for those who desire a hip pair of frames but lack the medical prescription. So, whether you’re taking part in one of the hottest trends or you’ve been wearing glasses since diapers, follow these three steps for a great set of lens-friendly lashes.
Step 1: Adjust. If you haven’t been to your optometrist in a few years, now is the perfect time to make an appointment! Allow your medical provider to adjust your fit and make any changes necessary. Glasses can become bent and worn over time so it’s important to ensure a proper fit for your vision, comfort and lash extensions. Opt for frames that sit on the bridge of your nose rather than higher up so not to interfere with your lashes.
Step 2: Measure. Once you’ve ensured a proper fit, work with your lash artist to measure your natural lashes and the space between them and your lenses. Your lash artist will be able to make professional recommendations based on the length of your natural lash and the style of your glasses.
Step 3: Pick a curl. Go for thickness over length when you have glasses! A great set full of D curls can really make your eyes pop even with glasses. Your lash artist might recommend volume lashes to help you achieve a dramatic look without overdoing the length. There are plenty of options!
Glasses are glamorous and you shouldn’t let them stop you from getting a great pair of lash extensions! There are many benefits of lash extensions especially for those of us who wear glasses and contact lenses. Remember, lash extensions are smudge-proof, low maintenance and non-irritating unlike mascara.
