The Eyes Have It—Even in Glasses—How to Get a Winning Look

Girls with Glasses

Famed make-up artist Bobbi Brown loves to create great looks—and her own tortoise shell glasses gave her inspiration to create super shades of make-up for glam girls who wear glasses.

Bobbi designed her new Tortoise Shell Collection to “complement, rather than compete with your glasses.”

“When it comes to eye makeup and glasses, I believe in keeping things simple,” Bobbi Brown says, “It’s not about piling on more make-up—it’s about using the right makeup and techniques.”

Brown introduces two new tortoise shell products. Her Bronze Tortoise Shell Eye Palette—at $60—features a range of neutral, amber and ivory luminescent powders that work with the eyes, rather than overpower them. And her new Tortoise Shell Mini-Brush Set, at $55 is a delightful on-the-go addition to any girl’s beauty bag.

Brown is happy to share some winning makeup tips for Girls with Glasses:

First, less is definitely more. Wearing glasses draws attention to your eyes. So keep your eye make-up simple. Stick to neutral shades like Amber Shimmer Wash eye shadow, and save the bold color for your lips. Don’t forget corrector and concealer—a must for all women but especially if you’re wearing glasses.

Second, eyeliner is essential. Adjusting thickness is important when you’re wearing glasses—if your frames are thick, apply a thicker line to the upper lash line so that eyes stand out. If your frames are thinker, a softer line works.

Third, make sure the brows are defined. 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 or sparse spots with a brow pencil or powder shadow.

Fourth, if your prescription makes your eyes look bigger….use a light hand and be sure to blend everything in carefully—the last thing you want is to magnify any mistakes. For shadows, go with neutral shades like Gold Nugget Sparkle Eye Shadow. Liner should be delicate and thin, with one coat of mascara to open up the eyes.

Fifth, if your prescription makes your eyes look smaller…be sure to line your eyes all the way around. Use a line that is darker than your natural eye color to create contrast, which will help define the eyes. Finish with two coats of mascara for a refreshed look.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
