"Being a beauty expert (massive understatement we say), I've always been aware of how glasses can transform the face and wanted to take the mystery out of how to choose the right glasses." Bobbi Brown
So she did. Launched in the USA in 2013 - very successfully we might add - it's taken a couple of years for us to get in on the action. Thank goodness we now can, since she's right. The right frames can make a huge difference to your face and the right makeup underneath them can do more wonders too. So why are the Bobbi Brown glasses so flattering? She's taken all her beauty knowledge into account during the design process.
The colour palette is designed to match the natural colours of our skin, eyes and hair, and enhance our faces like so:
Blush/Nude frames brighten the face, just like blusher.
Neutral frames compliment skin tones creatine a bare look
Tonal frames balance the skin tone with a soft contrast
Contrast frames strengthen and heighten the face and lips.
The Bobbi - obviously someone elses favourite too, with rectangular frames which best suit round of oval faces.
The Isabella - A subtle cat-eye shape great for oval faces.
1. Make sure eyebrows are properly defined
2. Eyeliner is essential, thicker line if the frames are thick and a softer line if they're thinner.
3. Keep shadow shades neutral and colour to your lips
4. For prescriptions that make the eyes appear smaller define eyes with liner right the way round then use plenty of mascara for a wider eye look
