Today's video is inspired by the eyeglasses worn by Marisa Tomei, playing Aunt May in the latest movie installments of Spider-Man. I actually found a pair of frames very similar to Aunt May's at my local optometrist's office. I wear bifocals, but I had these made as reading glasses only. Here is my inspiration:
And here is my version:
A couple of years ago I wrote a post about this younger, more attractive version of the iconic character and how I coveted Marisa's Aunt May style. Since then I've dreamed of having glasses like hers, but because of a special deal at my eye doctor, when I needed a new prescription, I had to choose a different frame.
So I'm talking here, as a beauty specialist, about looking your best wearing glasses. This seems to be an overlooked topic that I think is very important in so many ways. I discuss my everyday, no-line bifocal transitionals, wearing glasses by the pool or on the beach, eye makeup for glasses wearers, reading glasses, and more. I hope you enjoy it and begin to think in fresh ways about how your glasses are not only utilitarian, but are a unique expression of your personal style!
