These days, eye wear is one of the coolest fashion accessories out there. Glasses are no longer a frumpy accessory of the past! “Geek chic” is in, and we love seeing gals embracing their glasses. Whether you’re a daily user or just can’t be bothered to put in your contact lenses for the day (or week!), there are a few fundamentals to getting your eyes to pop under those stylish specs.

Definition Is In: Defining the eyes is a necessary technique since glasses can make the eyes appear smaller. Add some smudged liner to the top lashline, and keep your brows groomed for a perfectly polished look. (image)
Get Lippy: Skipping shadows in favor of concealer and a few coats of mascara—combined with a pretty,
punchy pout—is a chic, ultra modern look that can do no wrong! (image)
Stay Warm: Grey-toned shadows can mirror any shadows created by your specs, leaving you looking tired and dull. Avoid the cooler colors, keeping any shadows warm and fresh for the most beautiful impact. (image)
Do Your Own Thing: Experiment with your makeup. Wearing glasses doesn’t exclude you from trying out a
cat-eye or any other dramatic styles. Who knows—you may even end up with your very own iconic look! (image)
Keep It Bright: Since frames often cast shadows around the eye area, keep it bright by adding a warm, light shadow to the lid and inner corner of the eyes. This will help to reflect light and keep you looking crisp under your lenses!
