Listen up ladies- summer might be over but that’s no reason to pack away your sunnies. Whilst most of us associate our trusty sunglasses with balmy summer days, it’s still super important to have yours to hand come winter when the sun’s rays can be equally as damaging despite freezing temperatures. In fact, the winter sun sits lower in the sky, and at a different angle which can be damaging to various layers of the eye. With research showing that UV rays can contribute to various eye diseases (such as cataracts) as well as being a serious factor in the ageing process, we reckon you shouldn’t be packing your sunnies away quite yet.
What’s more, Cheryl Cole was spotted this weekend living it up in Amsterdam sporting a rather awesome red lippie/sunglasses combo which we think every beauty aficionado should take serious note of. We reckon la Cole got this notoriously tricky beauty look spot-on- way to Chezza! But the question is- would you match your sunglasses to your lipstick? When worked well, the right lipstick and sunglasses duo can do wonders for a tired, pale, winter complexion, and your trusty specs will hide a multitude of sins to boot.
Want in? Just remember the golden rules and stick to matte textures (glossy frames and a shiny pout are a total no-no), remember that soft tortoiseshell and neutral hues add a slick of sophistication, and if it’s colour you’re after then take note from Chezza and Queen Bey and keep your shades on the darker side to balance out the brighter hues.
This really is one heck of an easy-peasy beauty look that will help you to sizzle your way into the new season. Click through our gallery for some do’s and don’ts and get ready to grab your sunnies. And your lippie, too.
