Perfectly framed

By Bobbi Brown

Latest Bobbi Brown blog: Wearing glasses draws plenty of attention to your eyes, so it’s best to keep your eye makeup simple, MiNDFOOD reports.

If you overdo your eye makeup, it will just clash with your frames and end up looking garish. Less is definitely more in this instance: line just the top lash line; dust a neutral, ashy shadow on the lower lid; and brush a thin coat of mascara on top lashes only. Save the bright and bold colours for your lips.

Eyeglass frames draw attention to the brows, so be sure to keep your arches well groomed. Pluck or trim any scraggly hairs, and fill in holes in your brows with a brow pencil or powder shadow.

If your prescription makes your eyes look smaller, line your eyes – it’s a surefire way to make them look bigger. Apply liner on both top and bottom lash lines to create a doe-eyed look.

If your prescription makes your eyes look bigger, use a light hand when applying eye makeup and be sure to blend everything. The last thing you want your glasses to do is magnify sloppy work!

P.S. When shopping for frames, look for neutral colours. I prefer brown, black or clear plastic frames, or gold or silver wire frames. Brightly coloured frames become dated very quickly.
