Eye tips for glasses user

I've always loved the look of glasses--and wished I needed them (I have 20/20, sigh). I get a TON of questions about eye makeup and glasses though... So I thought I'd ask beauty know-it-all Kimara Ahnert for some tips. Here, her thoughts:

"There's no need to hide behind glasses when it comes to wearing eye makeup. Glasses bring more awareness to the eye area often making eyes appear larger when looking back at someone through their lenses. Make eyes pop by using eyeliner: First, define top of lids with a darker liner on top like bobbi brown creme gel liner in black or brown and eye shadow powder liner under bottom lashes for smoky definition. Powder liner is water-resistant minimizing chance of liner smudging throughout the day, always a plus.

Then, make eye color pop by using a color pencil on inside rim of bottom lashes - blue eyes can be enhanced with a Navy or royal blue pencil. Green eyes can use a teal pencil--our Mint eyeliner pencil is perfect. Hazel eyes can use a bronze eyeliner like our Penny eyeliner or Mint as well if they want their eyes to look more green. Brown eyes can use Purple/Wine, Dk Brown or Black eyeliners.

Finally, don't forget about your brows and keep them looking neat and groomed since they are framing not only your eyes but frames as well."
