Why bother getting dressed, putting on a jacket and shoes and making your way to a store to shop, when you can do it all online? Nowadays, even buying eyewear can be done without getting off the sofa, and with SmartBuyGlasses, it’s never been easier. Their virtual try on tool allows you to try on hundreds of glasses frames to try before you buy! The online feature gives such an accurate representation of your glasses face, it really is quite remarkable. Here’s a guide to doing it right.
Take A Quick Selfie Video
SmartBuyGlasses quickly and easily guides you through taking a five-second selfie video from your laptop or phone. All you need to do is turn your head slowly from side to side to give an accurate reading of your face shape, and voilà!
Start Trying Glasses On
The first step is to choose the brand that you’re interested in. Next, filter by ‘virtual try-on’ in the special features option. All the products that appear are available to try on. Next, find your way to a product page, select ‘selfie view’ and instantly picture the frames on your face.
Sound good? Give the SmartBuyGlasses try on tool a go, it works with sunglasses, eyeglasses, or even blue light blocking glasses on non-prescription lenses. Alternatively, continue reading for style suggestions and selfie tips.
The virtual try-on tool is so much more than an online mirror. It also tells you your face shape! Before such an innovative invention, the top recommended way to discover your face shape was to draw a line of lipstick around your face. This way is undoubtedly classier.
Knowing your face shape is the best way to narrow down your search for that dream pair of frames. There are so many styles on offer, it would otherwise be near impossible to know where to look! Some examples are: cat-eye frames can really suit an oval shaped face, while square shaped faces can look great in round or oval frames. If you have a round face, classic rectangle frames could be right for you.
If you went to the shops to try glasses on in real life, the chances are you would take a friend with you to get a second opinion. With the virtual try on tool, you can do exactly the same. Simply share your video with friends and family online. To avoid embarrassment, make sure you capture your best angle when taking the video. Here are some tips on how to do so.
Consider the Lighting
This is the most important element to any great photo or video. Natural lighting is usually best, especially when you’re trying on glasses, as the sun can really bring out your eye colour.
Where to Look
There’s always that one person in a group photo that looks slightly off. You don’t want that to be you when trying on glasses, you want to be looking your best! So our top tip is to hold the camera slightly further up, so that you are looking up at it, as this should show off your finest angle.
Everyone looks their best when smiling, and it’s hopefully how your face spends most of the day. So make sure you smile for the virtual try on! Feel free to repeat the video as many times as you like until you get that perfect shot.
Think about how it can frame your face and alter the look of your glasses. It is also worth bearing in mind that hair colour should compliment your frame colour.
