Your frames often create shadows below your eyes. To combat the shadow effect, use a warm hued concealer that is two shades lighter than your natural skintone. For addional brightening, look for concealers with light reflecting properties. Apply the concealer in an inverse triangular shape under the eye where the shadow of your frame falls. Blend upward using your fingers or a brush, as executed here by Lauren, our digital editorial intern. Finish the look and prevent creasing by dusting with a translucent powder.

Rock A Bold Lip
Bold lipstick adds instant polish to any look. Sure, red lips are classic, but pink and fuchsia hued lips are just as fun! Amp up your beauty look with a bold, bright lip like ESSENCE editorial assistant, Taylor, who is wearing Hard Candy Plumping Serum in Show Stopper ($6, available at Walmart)
Warning: This tip may change your life! Prevent your frames from sliding by applying eyeshadow primer to the bridge of your nose. #LifeHack

Experiment with Liners
Chances are your winged liner can't be seen behind your frames. Ditch your usual cat eye and experiment with new liner looks. Assistant Digital Beauty Editor, Virginia used the tip of a liquid liner pen to create a dot below her lower lash line to widen her eyes. If you're feeling flirty,line your lower lashline with a neutral metallic shadow.
