Hey Four Eyes, yeah you! You actually look super cute in your glasses. What’s your secret?
Do you wear glasses like Kacey Simon did in the book How To Rock Braces and Glasses as well as the first episode of How To Rock? Well, Michelle Phan, YouTube Beauty expert/celeb, gave her makeup tips in the October 2012 issue of Seventeen (the one with Nina Dobrev on the cover) and suggested that great frames make your eyes look like a unique work of art so make them stand out with a vibrant color. Check out her makeup tips below:
- Create the perfect liner look by outlining the winged shape you want with a white pencil. Then, starting at inner corners of eyes, fill in with lavender liner halfway across lids. (Try Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner in White, $1, drugstores; Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics Eyeliner Pencil in Lilac Shimmer, $2, Rite Aid stores)
- Use a brighter pop of pink on the outer corners. Apply from the middle of top lashlines to outer corners, winging out as you go. (Try LASplash Liquid Eyeliner in Purple Tide, $7, lasplashcosmetics.com)
- Shadows from your frames can darken under your eyes — offset that effect with a bright sky-blue liner on bottom lashlines. Start at the center and line to meet the top pink wing. To make eyes pop even more, curl lashes and add two coats of black mascara on top lashes only.
