New Glasses

Whether you have lovely baby blues, sultry browns or glimmering greens, your eyes are your best asset. Highlight your eyes with a new pair of glasses to bring a little attention to your pretty eyes while matching the look of that new party dress. Don’t underestimate how much glasses can completely change the look of your overall ensemble. Having an expressive pair of glasses to add to your holiday outfit will make you look fabulous.

Try Out New Styles

The holiday season is the perfect excuse to try out a new and fun style. A pair of classic black frames is a classy choice as they will go with just about anything. However, if you wish to try something a little more bold frames with a fun shape such as cat eyes are sure to be a great accessory to any outfit.


People tend to think of sunglasses as their go to beach accessory. However it is not just when you are lying on a beach surrounded by sand that you need protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Sunglasses are just as necessary in the winter as they are in the summer. In fact, the sun is twice as powerful in the winter when there is reflective snow on the ground. Whether you are out Christmas shopping or enjoying winter activities, sunglasses are a must to keep your eyes healthy and UV protected.


Glitter and smoky eyes are extremely popular during the holiday season. In order to make sure your eyes are healthy, and not just pretty, opt for non-glitter eyeshadow. Glitter eyeshadow contains ingredients that can actually scratch your eye. A good makeup tip if you wear glasses is: the thicker your frame, the thicker your eye liner, within reason of course. Also make sure your purse has all of your makeup as you should never share eyeliner, mascara or eyeshadow. Sharing makeup will spread bacteria. Keep makeup brushes clean and apply your makeup with care so you do not damage your eyes.
