Sunglasses are a great accessory. They vary greatly in style and price, add flair to an ordinary outfit, can be matched with other accessories to complete a polished look
and most importantly provide UV protection against the sun's dangerous rays that can cause long term damage to the eyes. The best protection is provided by shades that block 99 to 100 per cent of UV rays.
Whether you are strolling, posing or spending time on the patio, when you buy sunglasses at a quality optical store you will find that they are such an affordable accessory it is possible to have a pair for every outfit and occasion. Colourful sunglasses can be fun to match with outfits, beachwear or other accessories.
Make sure you select the shape of your sunglasses on what will flatter the shape of your face and the colour of your sunglass frames based on the complexion of your skin.
If you have a pale complexion, you should stay away from darker framed sunglasses
and choose patterns like tortoiseshell. Silver framed sunglasses should be avoided because it can make your skin appear colourless and drained. Instead, opt for gold and dark metal sunglass frames because they will be much more complementary. If you have darker skin, black and silver frames can be a great choice.
Hair, Makeup and Cool Sunglasses
Some other important considerations when selecting which sunglasses to wear that often get overlooked are how you wear your hair and your make up.
Where your hair is concerned, if you are going to wear your hair down you should select lighter more delicate framed sunglasses that won't draw attention away from the hairstyle or create a look that is too busy. If you are going to wear your hair up and away from the face, bolder styles are a better choice. Thick or brightly coloured sunglass frames with an updo hair style will create a really polished appearance.
When wearing make-up and sunglasses together make sure you curl your eyelashes prior to appllying mascara because it will help to prevent your eyelashes from hitting the lenses of your sunglasses and leaving messy mascara marks. If the forecast calls for a warm sunny day make sure that you dust on a loose powder over your foundation so that the combination of heat and sunglasses resting on the bride of your nose doesn't cause your makeup to rub off.
Because sunglass frames normally rest just under the brow they will naturally draw attention to the eyebrow area thus drawing attention to them. This makes it important to make sure your eyebrows are well groomed. Sunglass frames can also draw attention to the area under the eye. Depending on the size and shape of your sunglasses you may want to consider using a light concealer or a reflecting powder to avoid having your sunglasses draw attention to dark circles under the eyes.
