To my 4 eyed glamour dolls | 6 tips that will assure you'll definitely have that trifocal effect
* THICK FRAMES, THICK LINER — THIN FRAMES, THIN LINER
Thin frames call for a thinner liner. This is to ensure that neither gets overpowered and that the look of the makeup and glasses are well balanced. Bold frames are well complemented by a thicker liner to balance out the look so your eyes aren’t overpowered by the thick frames.
* THE PERFECT FELINE LASH
Lining your eyes with wings to get the “cat eye” effect will give your eyes a feminine ’60s look that will draw attention to your eyes rather than having them hiding behind your specs. Use a gel or liquid eyeliner. I like to line and define with the Napoleon Perdis Neo Noir Liquid Liner in Black. If you find creating the perfect flick a challenge, start with the wing, or use a business card to practice getting that fine line.
* CONCEAL AND CORRECT
Frames can cast dark shadows around the eyes. To prevent this, use concealer under your eyes in a triangular motion, dab a bit of concealer just above the midpoint of your eyebrows and then along the centre of your nose. It makes the area around your eyes appear fresh and brighter.
* SHADOW INSURANCE
Apply an eye shadow primer along eyelids and a little underneath the lower lash line before doing your eye makeup. This will ensure your eye makeup stays on all day without smudging and smearing all over your glasses. A great product is Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer
* ENHANCE YOUR EYEBROWS
Clean, well-shaped brows are vital when wearing glasses as they complement your eyes and can give a whole new look to your face. Lightly style your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil to create definition and shape. This will attract attention to the eyes and give them a more appealing look. Ensure you don’t colour them too dark otherwise it will make them look too heavy.
* BOLD FRAME, BOLD LIP
If you have a bold frame, another option is to keep it neutral on the eyes and rock the look with a bold, bright lip. It will bring the attention to your bursting-with-colour lips. It is important not to combine a bold frame, bold eyes a bold lip as this will completely overwhelm the look.
