How To Match Your Makeup To Your Specs

March 12, 2013

Specsavers and NP Set have teamed up to celebrate specs appeal in celebration of the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition. Headed up by style icon and proud spec-wearer, Christina Hendricks from Mad Men, the nationwide search to find Australia’s best-framed fashionista announced its winner as stylish spec wearer Joanna Wheaton from Victoria.

To help with your spec appeal, NP Set share their makeup tips for spec wearers:


To evoke your inner feline, team cat’s eye inspired frames with a creamy full coverage base, using Takes Two Concealer & Foundation Pot, and finish with sexy extended eyeliner. NP Set Day to Night Liquid Liner Duo in Las Vegas is perfect for creating feline flicks with ease. Finish with Lip Balm with Benefits in Baja, a luscious red lip stain with nourishing ingredients that lasts for hours and can double as a cheek colour. ?


These fashion forward Alex Perry frames with a hint of metallic detail are the perfect match for a smokey eye. Keep your base minimal using Memory Foundation then sweep the silver shade from NP Set Eye Palette in Seattle across the eye. Highlight the brow with the white and define the lash line using the deep blue for a smouldering runway look. Dream of exotic destinations by coating the lips with Lip Gloss in Maldives, a soft rose to complement dramatic eyes.


These edgy round frames from trend setter, Gok Wan, are set to be a hit with anyone wanting to make a statement. So why not go all out and team them with a bold lip – try NP Set Lipstick in Gold Coast. This fuchsia pink is vibrant and looks fabulous teamed with a punchy cheek colour. Use a combination of both the orange and pink from the Glam Set Palette across the apples of the cheeks. Coat lashes with Glamorista Mascara and finish by adding NP Set Eyelash in Manchester for a hip youthful vibe.


??These Gok Wan frames are effortlessly cool, with a strong dramatic shape. Avoid overpowering statement frames like this by keeping make-up simple and following the current nude trend. Begin with a beautiful matte base using NP Set Pasarella Powder, then create killer contours with the NP Set Contour & Highlight Palette. For a subtle gold eye shadow, try NP Set Duo St Barts along with lashings of NP Set Pasarella Mascara. Compliment creamy caramel frames with NP Set Lipstick in San Francisco, for a perfectly coordinated pout.?
