Start Loving Lipstick: I know, I know—we all own, and love, glosses galore! But trust me on this one. Lipstick is the best way to balance out statement frames, like embellished Swarovski sunglasses or angular vibrant red Police shades. So next time you are at the drugstore, pick up a long-lasting L’Oreal Paris lippie for the perfect coat of hydrating color. Also, NARS makes the most amazing Velvet Matte Lip Pencils that I highly recommend for saturated shades.
Swanky Lil Chap: Does your darling dude already show signs of having a passion for fashion? If he gladly rocks the adorable outfits you put together for him and digs hitting the mall, then he’s definitely on the right track to becoming a studly style expert! The sky is the limit when it comes to the frames your lil hipster can pull off! Play around with translucent, multi-colored and two-toned washes, trendy Clubmaster-inspired and wayfarer silhouettes, and unexpected materials like denim!
Fashion Fanatic: Take advantage of those giant fall fashion issues and tear out the looks you love from your must-have magazines—or if you’re feeling web savvy, start a Pinterest board featuring your favorite bloggers! This will help you focus on the wardrobe pieces you’re coveting most for the season ahead, and you can shop accordingly.
Stylishly Sporty: Pay careful attention to what you need from your frames in the days leading up to your shopping trip. When you are out running, do you feel like your current pair is moving around a tad too much? Would your performance benefit from more protection from the sun by opting for something slightly larger? Make a wish list of five features (one of them can be to perfectly match your snazzy new sneaks—no judgments here!) and bring it with you to the store.
Be Obsessive About Eye Cream: Lenses can magnify the delicate skin around your eyes, so hydration is a must! If you are up for a splurge, look no further than Caudalie Premier Cru eye cream. Dab your index finger along your eyes’ contours morning and night, or anytime throughout the day when you feel like that area could use a little extra love. Trust me, with some moisturizing, your eyes will appear flawless, especially under these tortoise Chloé frames with a quintessential keyhole bridge.
Don't Hide Behind Your Hair: Tousled curls are a fantastic way to frame your frames. I get mine with a few twirls of the Sultra curling wand. Regardless of whether I want to secure my beach-y waves or slick back a sleek pony, the one hair spray that I—and every professional hairstylist that I know, for that matter—always stock up on is by Elnett. Either way, oversized Vera Wang sunnies with fun temples are especially perfect for such hair-dos.
