Dear Hope: Raccoon Eyes

Makeup with Glasses

Dear Hope,

I wear glasses and I never know what to do with my eyes.  I don’t want to look like a raccoon behind them.   Any makeup tips?

Dear 4 Eyes,

If you wear colored glasses don’t match the eye shadow to you glasses.  Browns, neutrals and light pinks are best, also try a shimmery shadow.

Liquid or gel liners work best and don’t be afraid to pile on the mascara.  It will make your eyes pop behind the glasses.

If the area under your eyes tends to be dark glasses will accentuate that so wear a concealer and do not put shadow under eye.

If you want to wear bright, bold colors, then wear a bright lip.  Keep the bold colors for your lips and the neutrals for your eyes.

Those are just some tips.  You truly can wear whatever you love and whatever makes you comfortable.  Experiment and see what works best for you.  Have fun with it.
