- If you wear eyeglasses, get lenses with a no reflective glare, allowing others to see your eyes. If you have thick lenses that make your eyes look larger, go easy on the mascara; if the lenses make your eyes look smaller, be sure to line your eyes to bring them out. Your eyebrows, not your eyeglass frames, should define your face, so make sure to keep them well groomed. Are your glasses a strong color? Then keep your shadow neutral and concentrate color elsewhere on your face.
- If you have an important event coming up, this is not the time to try something new. If you want a new look, try it out a few months ahead of time, to give you and others a chance to get used to it. To keep your eyes from fading in photographs, you want your eyebrows cleaned up, well defined and completely filled-in. The same goes for your eyelashes. Use a curler and two coats of waterproof mascara. For shadow color, don't use pink, light blue or frosts; they'll make you look tired. A natural look is your best bet. The more comfortable you feel with your eye make up, the more confident you'll be in any situation.
