We see yah glassy girls. In fact, you’ve already caught our eye with those awesome frames you’ve got on.

For glasses-wearers, makeup actually needs to work harder to make your eyes pop. Magnification isn’t always a good thing, especially if you’ve got some bags taking a nap under your eyes.

Here are a few easy and quick tips (yup, they’ll fit in your makeup bag too) to get you started and turning heads.

1. Nudie and nice

Keep your choice of eyelid shade neutral such as creams or warm browns. Anything too fussy just gets a bit lost. Plus, if you attempt anything too zaney (electric blue/fuchsia etc), these colours can magnify dark circles under your eyes.

2. Top to bottom

To counteract any dark circles under the eyes, dot and blend some highlighter on the lower lid area for an instant pick-me-up. Particularly important if you’ve gone for those droopy-style lenses. You need a counterattack!

3. Form a line

This is where you can pack some punch, create intensity and per-spec-tive. Choose a liner that is a couple of shades darker than your frames and keep it as close to the lash-line as possible. Similarly, thicker glasses frames should be met with thicker eyeliner too. A flick at the edges is also perfect for glasses-wearers.

4. Lip-synch

Bold and bright lips will make your frames pop. They were simply meant to be together so by all means, give it some lip.

5. In a flutter

Some say only apply mascara to the top lashes. But if you want to make your eyes look bigger, give the lower ones a light paint too.

6. Raise a brow

High up on the list are well-groomed brows. Tweeze ladies. Tweeze. Make sure to follow your natural arch because, if you get this right, it will frame both your face and glasses beautifully. Good brows are a real game-changer for glasses-wearers.

Also, get a decent eyebrow pencil that is the same or a smidgen lighter than your hair colour to fill in any gaps.
