Step 1: Cover circles Cover circles under your eyes to avoid shadows that glasses can amplify. Brush loose powder on your nose since liquid makeup can smear on your nosepiece. Step 2: Smooth on foundation Use a mineral foundation to eliminate redness around your nose. It will prevent smearing, and covers where the glasses marks on the bridge of the nose normally appear. Step 3: Apply neutral Apply eye shadow without exceeding the eye length. Since lenses can amplify everything, conservatively smooth on a neutral shade if you have colorful or bright frames, going from the middle out to the eye corners. Tip Frosty or shimmery eye shadow can detract from or compete with frames. Step 4: Curl, separate lashes Curl your eyelashes to keep your eyes looking big and to keep them from brushing against your lenses. Using a thin formula mascara and wiggle the wand to prevent clumping for a doll look that the glasses will emphasize. Step 5: Frame the frames Frame your glasses with strong, full, darkened eyebrows that look natural without thickening or overdoing it. Tip If you want to dramatize or enlarge the eyes, especially if your glasses make them look small, create a bold, crisp edge over and under your eyes with black eyeliner. Step 6: Highlight with blush Wear a luminous blush on your cheeks, nose, and chin. Highlight with soft color on the apple of you cheek to emphasize, rather than distract from, your glasses. Step 7: Finish with lipstick Choose a light color lipstick to keep the attention on your eyes, and to avoid making the distance between eyes and lips too short. Lip liner should be consistent, and soft instead of bright in color. Now go and show 'em why four eyes are better than two. Did You Know? Benjamin Franklin invented bifocals.
