The Snow Eye-care Guide to Make-Up!

Are your glasses aging you? They might be if you’re still sporting the specs you wore when Mrs Thatcher was Prime Minister!

Choosing the right frames can take years off your face. Whether you’re shopping for reading glasses or need a pair of shades to fend off wrinkles and sunspots, consider investing in one of our stylish frames that will make you look more youthful and feel great!


Eyeglasses can make a big impact on your appearance, and styling your make-up to complement your glasses all comes down to personal preference. But here are a few trendy tips to help you look your best.

Lighten Up:

Some eyeglass frames can cast dark shadows around the eyes in certain light.

Contouring your foundation can highlight key features, like the eyes:

To combat this blend a lighter-toned foundation under your eyes and down the centre of your nose. This technique – known as contouring – makes you appear fresher and highlights your eyes. You can take this one step further and fully contour your face by bronzing your cheek bones, the top of your forehead and either side of your nose. Be sure to fully blend the highlighting foundation and bronzer with your natural-colored face makeup.

Just Browsing:

Eyebrow styling largely depends on the size and shape of your eyewear, as well as the thickness and contour of your eyebrows. If you wear smaller frames or have naturally thin eyebrows, filling them in with a natural color can help attract attention to your eyes. filling in your eyebrows with your natural color can help draw focus to your eyes and enhance your look. Using an eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder and a thin brush, lightly fill in your eyebrows using short, dash-like strokes and following the natural arch of your brow.

Full, defined, arched brows are in vogue right now. However, if you wear big, bold frames you might want to avoid heavy eyebrow makeup. The same goes for those with naturally light hair or thinner eyebrows. You don’t want to fill in your eyebrows with a color that’s too dark or make them appear too full.

On the Lid

Beauty magazines often advise pairing bold frames with subtle, natural-looking eye makeup. But that’s not always the best choice. One look at eyeglass frame advertisements in magazines will demonstrate that you can go bold with your makeup, too.

Striking cat-eye eyeliner, highly defined eyelashes and ueye shadow color are all great ways to play up your eyes. If you’re choosing a bright eye shadow colour, remember to complement the colour of your frames — you don’t want them to clash, which can cheapen the look.

Read My Lips

As with any makeup look (bespectacled or not) it’s best to highlight either your eyes or your lips and not overdo both. If you have eye-catching eyeglasses and love dramatic eye shadow, skip the bold lip and pair your look with a colourless gloss or slightly tinted lip balm. Or pass up the dramatic eyes and wear thin eyeliner, mascara and a fun, bright-colored lipstick. This look is especially cute with vintage-style glasses.
