Finally got my new glasses in the mail after unfortunately losing my old pair between JFK and MSP. I do blame the airline/airport, but I can't know for sure the true fate of my spectacles, so it was a heavy mourning period until my new Warby Parker frames (the Talbot style) arrived with an updated prescription. In a way, losing my old ones was a blessing in disguise.
I've had the frames for about a week but this is the first time I'd paired them with makeup. I was going to dinner at my basically aunt's house for some family time with my dear aunt who was visiting from California (hi, Auntoria!) and though I laid around in bed all day tired from Toussaint's show the night before, I dragged myself out of bed around 5pm and put on a simple face for the get together.
I love the way these frames pair with winged eyeliner. Everything I did was pretty straightforward, but in general I like to wear winged liner with glasses because I find it adds depth to the eyes and makes them stand out behind the frame. Honestly, these frames weren't my first choice, but my beau and a good friend talked me into them and now I'm very glad I went with the suggestion. Unfortunately it's quite difficult to capture the makeup behind the glasses due to a light flare in the lenses, so you'll just have to take my word for it. The new frames are black on top but aluminum on the bottom, so it helps keep weight around my eye and brow area but stays open for the rest of the face to come through.
In honor of Memorial Day, I wore my American flag skull sweater while fondly remembering my grandparents, who both served in the Marine Corps during WWII. Semper Fi!
