7 Tips for Wearing Make-Up with Glasses

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! I’m so happy you’re here!

Today, let’s talk make-up tips with glasses. Recently, I switched back to wearing glasses full-time. My contacts were getting annoying and they were drying out my eyes. Plus, putting them in and taking them out was getting old. It’s just so much easier to throw on my glasses and continue with my day.

The thing is, though, putting on make-up with glasses can be challenging. Have no fear! I’ve put together 7 tips to take all the guesswork out of wearing make-up with glasses. Let’s get into it!

Tip 1: Use a color corrector

Glasses magnify your eye area. Piling on the concealer can make your under eyes look extra cakey. That’s not a look we’re going for. Instead, use a color corrector to neutralize the color under your eyes. Peach is a great choice for masking those pesky dark circles. Some color corrector followed by a small amount of concealer will have your under eyes looking bright and beautiful in no time! Check out my color corrector review here.

Tip 2: Minimal eye-shadow

Again, remember the glasses magnify the eye area. So, eye-shadow that is not blended just perfectly will stand out like a sore thumb. I’m blind as a bat without my glasses. Putting on eye-shadow and flawlessly blending it out is nearly impossible. No worries, though, there’s an easy solution. Either use a base colored eye-shadow or none at all. How easy is that?!? Plus, the make-up trend this year is light eye-shadow and bright lips. Win, win!

Tip 3: Match eyeliner thickness to frame thickness

Eyeliner is a must do step when wearing glasses. As always, eyeliner makes your eyes pop and become the focal point of your face. We all want that, right? The key when wearing eyeliner with glasses is easy. Simply mach the eyeliner thickness to the thickness of the frame. This will balance the eye-wear and your eyes and create a fabulously perfect look.

Tip 4: Use volumizing mascara

Mascara can be tricky when wearing glasses. Lengthening mascaras can create too much length and brush against the lenses. That gets annoying as it becomes constantly necessary to clean the lenses. Use a volumizing formula for best results. The magnification from the glasses coupled with the volumizing effect on your lashes will make them look fierce! Additionally, no need for bottom lash mascara when wearing glasses. That’s great news as far as I’m concerned! Check out my favorite volumizing mascara here.

Tip 5: Do your brows

Brows are often overlooked. The impact they have when done, though, is undeniable. This is even truer when wearing glasses. Make sure you do your brows! Check out my favorite brow product and the full scoop on the importance of doing your brows here.

Tip 6: Don’t forget your skin

So far, we’ve been talking about make-up around our eyes. We don’t want to forget the rest of our face, though. When wearing glasses, don’t skip the foundation. Again, I’m mega blind without my glasses. I’ve found using powder foundation is the easiest to apply and blend without being able to see much. Check out my favorite powder foundation here.

Tip 7: Layer on the lipstick

Last, but not least, layer on the lipstick. The eye-shadow is kept minimal, so to balance out the look add a bold lip color. The minimal eye look coupled with a bold lip is so on-trend this year. It’s the perfect time to rock out this look! I’m still loving the MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick from Wet n Wild. Find it here.

That’s it! 7 easy tips to look great in glasses. I’d love to hear which eye-wear you prefer? Glasses, contacts, or none of the above (lucky!)?

Rainbow Pop

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It’s been pretty rainy lately. Nothing counteracts the dark, stormy days like a nice pop of color. For this outfit, I went with a white top and cardigan, skinny jeans, a pop of pink, and a colorfully fun scarf. I topped off the look with these pink espadrilles. I’m not loving them with the skinny jeans, though. People wear espadrilles with skinny jeans all the time and look fabulous. It’s just not a look for me, I guess. That’s okay. We don’t all look great in all the fashion trends that come along.

How do you beat rainy days?

You Win Some, You Lose Some

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Sometimes we create an outfit that is absolutely stellar. Other times, though, our outfits may fall short of our expectations. Today was one of those days where my look did not turn out like I wanted it to. The coral cardigan combined with the white top and black leggings was fine. The coral necklace was a great addition as well. However, the cardigan was really too short for this long length top. Those pieces just didn’t jive well together and it brought down the whole look of the outfit.

Do you ever have days when your outfit isn’t quite a winner?

Blushing Pink

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today’s outfit was inspired by wanting to wear yet another of my new spring shirts (see my Spring Haul Update here). ¬†It doesn’t feel much like spring here today, I think we may have reverted back to winter. To add some extra warmth to this blush tunic tank, I threw on this cream cardigan. I paired the top with these pull on bootcut jeans, ballet flats, and finished off the look with a long layered necklace for some interest. I’m kida digging this outfit!

How do you add extra warmth on cold spring days?

From Casual to Edgy

Hello, lovelies!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, let’s talk transitions. ¬†Right now, we’re in the midst of transitioning from winter to spring (thank goodness!). ¬†There are also times when you might want to transition from day to night. ¬†For today, though, we’re going to focus on transitioning from casual to edgy. ¬†I’m going to show you one outfit and how we can transition a look by simply changing the accessories. If you’re not into edgy looks, that’s okay. ¬†This can apply to any type of look you maybe going for.

Let’s get into it!

The casual look on the left features flip-flops and simple jewelry.  For the edgy look on the right,  we switched out the flip flops for booties and added a statement necklace.  How cool is it that simply by changing out these accessories, we can totally change the look of the whole outfit?!?

Here’s a close-up of the statement necklace. ¬†I also wanted to share my favorite feature of this top…pockets! ¬†So fun!

Which look is your favorite?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day, lovelies!

Kimono Me Crazy

Hello, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It seems like kimonos are everywhere again this spring! See my posts here and here for last year’s kimono looks. I love the effortless class kimonos add to our looks. Slipping on a kimono just boosts your outfit to a whole new level.

Let’s get into today’s look. This is the kimono my bestie made for me a couple of years ago. I still love it and get compliments every time I wear it! Thanks, bestie! ūüėė

Hello, lovelies!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Don’t you just love clothing items that can do double (or 10x) duty? ¬†I know I do. ¬†We’re spending our hard-earned cash on these pieces, so it’s great to get extra bang for our buck! ¬†When purchasing items, I always try to envision at least 3 ways I can wear the new piece with existing pieces in my wardrobe. ¬†This ensures the new piece will play nicely with the items already in our closets.

Striped shirts are having a moment lately.  When you stop to think about it, it makes sense.  They are super versatile.  Stripes are really a new neutral.  Not only can they be paired with everything, they can be styled to be casual or dressy and everything in between!

What do you get when you have a striped top that can be worn 10x ways? ¬†Let’s check it out!

20190504_094932_00001820880018526660510.png
I love the look of this yellow sweater with the striped shirt.  I paired this look with ballet flats, but you could easily add a pair of black pumps and dress this look up even more!

20190504_094512_00004304660789454716996.png
This is a pretty casual look. ¬†It’s so easy, though! ¬†Simply throw on a necklace and there you go!

20190504_094601_00003116625508169501344.png
This is one of my favorites. ¬†I’m loving the pink pop of the statement necklace. ¬†I also love the edginess the booties add to the look. ¬†Adding different shoes, such as ballet flats, would totally change the look of this outfit. ¬†So fun!

20190504_094426_00003072199770463589259.png
Mixing patterns can be scary. ¬†As we talked about before, though, stripes are the new neutral. ¬†Feel free to experiment with different patterns. ¬†You never know what you’ll come up with!

20190504_094054_00006807246483536513836.png
A pop of red with black and white is so classy.  I love the book ending in this outfit with the red necklace and the red sandals.

20190504_094213_00002852965251114230906.png
This outfit was so easy yet it’s creeping up on dressy. ¬†The black pumps really take this look to the next level. ¬†Love it!

20190504_093934_00007557091888524310559.png
Again, with the red. ¬†You can’t go wrong with black and white and red!

20190504_094256_00008796065519470787412.png
This is the most causal of all the looks.  Again, such an easy look and allows the statement earrings to have a moment.

20190504_094132_00009200817203734439988.png
This is the most dressy of all the looks and maybe my favorite.  I love sparkles, so this outfit really speaks to me.  I also love the way the black pumps finish off the look.

20190504_094347_00004967117215374968674.png
Another casual look pairing brown with the black and white.  The brown in the necklace helps tie in the brown boots.  Another love!

There you have it. ¬†The 10 looks with a striped shirt (similar shirt here). ¬†I got this idea from Candance over at JustPosted.com. ¬†She has some amazing posts! ¬†Here’s her latest 10 Ways post. ¬†Check it out for some fabulous new outfit ideas!

It’s All New

Hello, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

A few weeks ago I shared some of my latest spring pieces. I’ve been itching to wear them! Today’s outfit was inspired by my desire to wear these new clothes! Let’s take a look!

Sweater (exact) // Tank (similar) // Jeans (similar) // Shoes (similar)

I love how the browns in the sweater and the necklace make the greens in the shirt and the shoes really pop. I’m so happy with the way this outfit turned out! Bonus points that it was super comfy too!

Do you ever put together outfits simply because you’re excited about wearing a particular item?

Spring Haul Update

and Taking My Own Advice

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

20190414_091605_00017924648904900188422.png

When seasons change it’s always nice to buy a few new pieces to refresh our wardrobes. If we keep adding items without getting rid of others, our closets can get very congested and overcrowded. An option to prevent this from happening is to follow the one-in one-out rule. I talked about this briefly in a post here. As a refresher, the one-in one-out rule is when we bring a new piece into our wardrobe, another piece is removed.

I’ve recently bought some new spring items, so I thought it would be fun to share with you how I follow this rule in my own life. I never buy new hangers, which forces me to make sure I adhere to the one-in one-out rule. Let’s get into it!

photogrid_15546784691068486909649870763071.jpg
Even though stripes are hot this year, I chose to let this striped shirt go in favor of this tunic length sweater. I’m loving all things tunic length lately and I feel this sweater fits my current style more than the striped shirt.

photogrid_15546753352566574314189177833129.jpg
These shirts are so similar, so this choice was easy. Plus, the one-out top doesn’t fit well anymore.

photogrid_15546784101367749311440970218977.jpg
Although, I love the this wrap shirt, it’s simply not my jam anymore. It’s time for it to go to Goodwill.

photogrid_15546782785003064106883225415897.jpg
I’m loving this new shirt! It’s another tunic length number. The one-out shirt isn’t a good length and doesn’t fit well anymore.

photogrid_15546799272453850310433037293548.jpg
This new one-in dress is so versatile and comfy. I love it! As for the one-out dress, I just don’t find myself wearing it very often. I think someone else could put it to better use.

photogrid_15546756942825795810660336596972.jpg
This one-in shirt is so beautiful and comfy to boot! The one-out shirt is one I’ve had for over 10 years. I still love it, but it just doesn’t fit my style anymore.

photogrid_15546754831356452411443861074319.jpg
The one-out top doesn’t fit well anymore, so this was an easy choice.

photogrid_15546755499726177893696896728449.jpg
I still love the fit and color of the one-out tank, but it needs fixing so it’s time to go.

photogrid_15546756044015682942755087414546.jpg
These are similar tanks. I love the one-out top, but it doesn’t fit well anymore.

photogrid_15546754268147173504827009999870.jpg
This was a difficult choice. I love both dresses, but at the end of the day the one-in fits my style better than the one-out.

photogrid_15546798668961748240507429423155.jpg
This was another hard choice. The brown shoes are nice, but it’s just time for change.

Fool Proof Tips for Hiking in Comfort

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Spring has sprung! I’ve been seeing daffodils in bloom everywhere. Trees are starting to bud, birds are chirping, and the grass is greening up. The world is coming back to life. I love it!

Spring is a great time to also get back outside and enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding us. Breath in the fresh air and get all that winter dust and darkness out. It’s a time to refresh and reset the soul. What a better way to do that than to go for a hike.

20190407_092233_00017055922055259594798.png

A hike you ask? Yes, let’s go for a hike! But what should we wear? Great question! It can be difficult to figure out what to wear for a hike (or any outdoor activity for that matter). I’ve come up with a few fool-proof tips to make sure you dress for comfort on your next outdoor adventure! Let’s dive in!

Tip 1: Check the Temperature

Through trial and error, I’ve determined that the tipping point temperature is 70 degrees.

  • Under 70 degrees I would suggest wearing the following:
    • Long pants
    • Short sleeve shirt
    • Jacket

photogrid_1555192674667389752176629016715.jpg

  • Over 70 degrees I would recommend wearing the following:
    • Capris or shorts
    • Short sleeve shirt or tank top

photogrid_1555192585578915296142734761358.jpg

Throw on a baseball cap and you’re good to go!

Tip 2: Layer, layer, layer

photogrid_15551924810891403189009705598198.jpg

Layering is the key to comfort. Even checking the temperature beforehand you can never really tell how it will feel out on the trail. It might be under 70 degrees, but what if it’s sunny and bright. Shedding that jacket might be just what the doctor ordered.

Tip 3: Choosing the right shoes

20190407_091541_00011453616938588095810.png

Choosing the right footwear can be challenging as well. Knowing the trail makeup can really help take the guessing out of what to put on your feet.

  • Paved Trails: Regular tennis shoes should fit the bill

photogrid_15551918916005015884973384532739.jpg

  • Unpaved trails: Hiking shoes are a great option on these surfaces (similar)

photogrid_15551917340415658730002073538694.jpg

  • Mountainous or rough terrain: Hiking boots are in order (similar)

photogrid_15551920158736222678900448473222.jpg

On another note, I would highly recommend changing into flip-flops or sandals when you’ve finished your hike. Why you might ask? Let me illustrate with a story. One beautiful autumn afternoon, I decided to go for a hike with my dog. The air was warm, but not hot. The cool breeze was blowing through the trees of red and orange. The fall wildflowers were in full bloom. It was a great hike. The trail was about an hour from our home. We were about home and all-of-a-sudden my legs felt like they were on FIRE! Seriously, on fire. They itched so badly. Turns out I had a really bad case of chiggers. Had I taken off my shoes and socks after the hike, I may have been able to prevent the infestation. Even if you don’t encounter chiggers, who knows what you may brush up against in the woods. Poison ivy, anyone? Case in point, remove your socks and shoes after hiking.

Tip 4: Hiking Essentials

20190407_092201_00013807913846856361647.png

Now that we know what to wear, what should we bring? We may think nothing, but there are a few things we want to make sure we have with us on the trail.

  1. Whistle: Yes, a whistle. In case you get into any trouble, just three short blows indicates an emergency. (here)
  2. Water: Make sure you have plenty of water. It’s recommended to drink 1/2 to 1 liter of water every hour on hot humid days. It’s still important to drink water on chilly days, too, although you may need less than indicated above. If you’re bringing your dog along, make sure you have plenty of water for them too!
  3. First Aid Kit: Safety first! You can make your own or purchase one from the nearest drug store. There are plenty of light and compact options out there. (here)
  4. Binoculars: Who knows what wildlife you may run into! (here)
  5. Granola bars: Make sure you have a source of energy out there on the trail.
  6. Backpack: You’re going to need something to carry all this stuff in! (here)

20190407_091412_00012042318443779768094.png

That’s it! You’re now prepared to have a comfortable (and safe) trip on the trail, so go out there and explore! Feel free to share your outdoor adventure pics with us in the comments or on our Facebook page. We’d love to see them!
