Spotlight: Colourful Eyewear

Color is a major 2013 trend, and not just in eyewear.  This Spanish collection puts a spin on      color by incorporating it into clear acetate.       The results are jewelry-like as shown in this modified cateye frame whose top portion is striped and bottom portion is pixelated.  These would look stunning on someone with      light brown hair and blue eyes.

These frames exemplify the synergy resulting from an outstanding color combination.  Topping a translucent royal with an opalescent coral in a rectangular shape makes for a clever re-invention of a timeless classic…and the most stylish readers we have seen in a very long time!

Spotlight: Round Glasses


A rounder lens shape is another major trend started in Europe and slowly taking over the world of eyewear.  Don’t dismiss the rounder Harry-Potter-influenced frames without trying a few on!  The round re-invention in wonderful plastic combinations takes on a more complimentary aesthetic than in years past.  Fantastic for faces with more chiselled features, round spectacles bring out the intellectual side in everyone.  The real trick is finding the right size for your features.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is in the air at eye-bar. We love red frames because they make a statement and they look good with everything!
 
Red eyeglasses are easier to wear than you may think. Red frames match most eye colours and skin tones (unless you have a lot of red undertones). They act as a neutral in your wardrobe - all your bright and dark clothes will work well.
 
Above is just a taste of all the rose coloured glasses you can swoon over at eye-bar!

style: Etnia Barcelona glasses and readers!

We have a lot of new Etnia Barcelona frames in store for you to try on! We love how colourful and stylish this whole line of eyewear is. The frames are acetate and/or metal, and they're everything but boring!

style: Eye Makeup Behind Glasses

We know the importance of choosing frames that suit your personality and bring out the best features in your face. Eye makeup works closely with your glasses to achieve this, but the makeup application should be slightly altered to work best with your glasses. Here are a few helpful tips we collected to make your makeup and your frames work together to make you look your best:

  • Wear neutral or warm shades of eyeshadow. If you wear grays and cooler colours, your eyes will appear smaller, darker, and can look like you’re hiding a black eye!
  • Adding bright or bold eyeshadow colors to your lids can clash with the frames and make your eyes appear smaller. Many layers and mixes of colour can look like you’re hiding your eyes behind the frames, not enhancing them. If your frames are rimless, you can get away with a bit more colour, but keep it simple!
  • Stick to light colors on the lids to make your eyes appear larger behind the frames
  • Avoid lining the lower lashes – this will darken your eyes, making them appear smaller and give you an overall tired look behind your glasses.
  • Choose volumizing, not lengthening, mascara. Apply two coats if necessary. Lengthening mascara may make your eyes touch your lenses, dirtying them and irritating your eyes.
  • Keeping eyebrows neat and well-shaped becomes very important when you’re wearing your glasses. Some think that frames will disguise the eyebrows, but most frames make untidy or asymmetrical brows more noticeable.

style: scoping out new eyewear collections

vision_eyewear_glasses_eyeglasses_sherwood_park_eyebar_vision_expo_vegas.jpg

Our opticians were off to Las Vegas this past weekend to scope out some new eyewear! We’re really excited that they represented eye-bar at the International Vision Expo & Conference.

Our lead optician spent the whole weekend finding new eye-bar worthy collections and deciding what styles we’ll be updating the eye-bar shelves with in the coming months. Vision Expo attendees get up to date with the latest news and technology in the medical, lenses, processes, and eyewear aspects of the optical industry. We can’t wait to see what our opticians bring back to share with the eye-bar team and our patients!

Every few months, eye-bar travels all over the world to find the best eyewear pieces for our collection. We like to meet face to face with the makers of our collections and learn about new technologies in the industry first-hand from the experts.
