As mentioned last week, I got some new glasses as my previous ones were not suitable for the amount of laptop work I seem to do at the moment. I wanted to talk a little more about the whole process of getting them, and in particular what made me choose this specific pair. To begin with, I already had some reading glasses that I got just before GCSE’s, so heading for nearly two years ago now. I got these after suffering from headaches, which was probably a result of all the revision I had started doing. The headaches weren’t that bad, and luckily I got an opticians appointment quickly and the whole thing was sorted. The glasses I chose two years ago were from the Hugo Boss range, and were a gorgeous deep plum colour. They fitted so well and suited my face shape incredibly. I absolutely loved them. So, when it came to choosing a new pair, I was slightly hesitant in my choice, as nothing seemed as perfect as those. 

‘To me choosing the perfect pair of glasses has nothing to do with how they look, it is about how they feel.’

Before going to the opticians, I wanted to read a little about the right way to choose glasses. I already knew that I would definitely be getting some, seeing as I had spent about 20 hours in a darkened room with the worst migraines ever. Overall, from all the articles I have read and looking at all the glasses celebrities are wearing, there were three things to consider. 
Firstly, the eyewear should repeat your best feature, for example, a blue frame if you have blue eyes. I was a little sceptical about this as my eyes are a dark blue, and I don’t really like the thought of blue glasses? However, I can see how this would work. So, I thought I would think about the eye make-up I wear, and try to choose a frame that compliments this. In the end I went for a frame with different shades of brown, which is perfect as I always wear gold subtle eyeshadows. Secondly, the frame shape should contrast with your face shape. I have quite a round face, therefore round glasses probably wouldn’t look great. Therefore, I went for some slightly square shaped one with curves at the bottom. I didn’t want them to be completely square as they are always quite thin. 
Finally, the frame size should be in scale with your face size. This one was actually pretty obvious, and I instantly noticed when trying some on how strange they looked if they were too big or small. So in the end I went with a Converse pair… surprisingly I didn’t even know Converse sold glasses, and I am pleasantly surprised. They suit my face shape so well, and I love how they are not as round as the last ones. 

– have a good Sunday –
