Nerdy/Geek girl Makeup Look and Tips
By Contributor: Shruti Gupta
Who says nerdy girls can’t be fun? They can be sexy and bold. Okay why am I advocating for them? I’m not a nerd anyway. But I would love to be one! By far I’m the opposite of nerds..I’m the last girl (actually second last..Anshita is the most careless – she sneaks into the lecturers’ cabins secretly well over the last date and puts her assignments in the bundle with the others) in my class to submit my assignments, project reports, presentations and case studies, etc. But nerds are so fun. They can work the 2 S – serious and sensuous at the same time. Think of all those chemistry teachers in your school..okay actually that I should ask the boys but..whatever!
So one fine day when I was super bored, I borrowed my friend’s huge nerd glasses and took out my red lipstick and heelloo ms.geek!
4 Rules to Follow for the Nerd Girl Makeover:
- Bold Lips – I know the frames take center stage but the statement lip compliment them. I suggest doing a bold red, neon orange or a fuchsia pink lip with it. And since fall is here, you can even try deep ruby and maroon shades.
- Thick Eyeliner – You must have read about the eye makeup dos and donts with glasses. A thick swipe of black eyeliner (preferebly matte – think Maybelline gel or Clinique cream liner) is a must.
- Full Lashes – If you are gifted with thick luscious lashes then I’m not talking to you. Go for a voluminous mascara which gives your lashes a little length too. And oh please don’t bother with fake lash extensions if you are not comfortable..I can’t handle them!
- Classy black frames: Yeah thats the most important part, right?!
