Make-up guide for girls with glasses
Here’s how to put on a face for every frame

SO NOT MAINSTREAM
Pair your orange hipster glasses and thrifted beach shirt with a counter-culture scrunchie and indie green lids. Proceed to take selfie.

Spectacles can’t be glamorous? We beg to differ. A hint of bronzer, plum lips and nude metallic lids – and you’re ready for the flashbulbs.

School was tough, huh? But you got through it, with all that adorable weirdness intact. Some mascara and a pretty peach on the lips, lids and cheeks are all you need to complement the riot of prints, textures and colours that is you.
