There’s no need to leave your eyes looking like plain Jane’s because of your glasses. Bring out your eye-shadow palettes—striking colours make for a more impactful statement than basic black. Do keep the shade of your frames in mind while experimenting with eye-shadows. Slim metallic frames will complement almost any eye shadow but larger frames may require thought. Offset black frames with mulberry, indigo or jewel-toned shades. For colourful glasses, choose subdued hues—neither contrasting nor exactly matching.
If you’re focusing on your lips, choose a bold colour. This is no time for pale shades. Fuchsia, tangerine orange, or a bright pop of red offset both colourful and dark frames equally well. Dark goth-inspired lips tend to look better with dark or metallic frames. Keep eye make-up to the minimum with just concealer for an even skin-tone and mascara for fluttery lashes.
If you want the best of both worlds, here’s a look for you. Take a cue from vintage photographs and pair winged eyeliner in a dark shade with red or plum lipstick. Your pout will pop and the curvy stroke of liner will complete the look without seeming OTT.
Tip: Whether you take the lip or eyes route, flaunt a pop of colour on your nails.
