Glasses definitely make a style statement, but your eyes can get lost beneath your frames unless you adjust your makeup.
“Being a beauty expert, I’ve always been aware of how dlasses can transform the face and wanted to take the mistery out of how to choose the right glasses”- Bobbi Brown, founder and chief creative officer of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Inc.
Here are her favorite ways to make your eyes pop from behind your lenses she decribes in “Everything Eyes” by Chronicle Books.
- Eyeliner is key; it really adds definition from behind your lenses.
- Always define your brows with a shadow the same shade as your hair color. This ensure that your glasses don’t overpower your face.
- The glass in your frames can hightlight undereye discoloration and darkness, so corrector and concealer underneath the eye and in creases is essential.
- Waterproof mascara won’t smage on your lenses.
- If you have strong frames, you can get away with stronger makeup.
- If your frames are delicate, or in a nude shade, don’t let your makeup overpower your frames. Choose softer colors for shadow and create definition with a dark liner and mascara.
- The color of your eye shadow shouldn’t compete with the color of your glasses. If you want to do the same color as your frames on your eyelids, try a base hue that’s a shade lighter, and go a few shades darker for the crease color. Finish with black liner and mascara.
- For an easy look, go with a bold color on your lips and just corrector, concealer, and mascara for your eyes. Put on your glasses and you’re done.
1. An eye shadow color that is lighter and brighter than your frames will stand out, instead of competing with your glasses.
2. When you have a mix of confident colors on your hair, lips, and frames, kep your eye makeup simple and clean with only a little liner and mascara.
3. White frames highlight both your eye and makeup colors, making them a great choice to pair with statement eye makeup.
4. Bold liner, with minimal shadow, looks amazing with thick, oversize frames.
