No-fuss inventions like the shimmer brick and beach-scented shower gel have made Bobbi Brown the secret weapon of low-maintenance cosmetics-wearers. Now, the beauty pro has released what may be her most innovative collection yet: eye makeup specifically for women who wear glasses.
Inspired by her own signature frames, Brown's aptly named Tortoise Shell collection comes in two flattering, neutral palettes: Sand, for light skin tones and Bronze, for darker complexions ($60). The beautiful packaging contains eight eye shadows varying from shimmery gold to matte brown that complement--rather than compete with--your glasses.
Since lenses can blur the shape of your eyes, line your top and lower lashes in the black chocolate or espresso shadow to give them definition (the thicker the frame, the thicker the line should be). As Brown notes, it's not about piling on makeup, but using natural shades to enhance your eyes.
Start with the lightest shadow in the palette and apply the darker hues until you get your desired intensity. And remember: Glasses accentuate the entire eye area, so well-groomed brows and concealer are key.
With peepers this pretty, who needs contacts?
