beauties, my dream of sunshine for nyc has come true, at least for a day.
yesterday's warm weather got me thinking about the many necessary makeup adjustments that sunshine brings. one of the most important adjustments isn't makeup, strictly speaking. sunglasses become necessary for a finished face because there is a direct correlation between temperature and eye makeup meltdown. shades are especially useful when one brunching and promenading, summer's finest activities.
the perfect sunglasses should flatter your face and reflect your taste, not just stop you from squinting. my favorite brands are tom ford and ray-ban. both brands offer unique styles without getting cartoonish and without going too oversized (i have a small head, so this is key).
for this summer, i've chosen a new pair of ray-bans as my signature shades (from the shadesdaddy.com) -- the ray ban olympian II (see above). i love the gold band across the top. this was my first time using shadesdaddy -- but i'll be going back because i see they have a ton of tom ford's at discounted rates (not to mention just about every other sunglasses designer).
