Do you guys agree that we live in ‘screen age’. You know, just like stone age. Screen age – because our eyes are constantly on some or the other screens. Be it a computer’s screen, cell phone screen, tablet, television. Ahh the list is long…!!!
When our eyes are strained by looking at such screens for so long, there is definitely high chance we end up getting eye problems. Starting with the spectacles. Arrgghhh these spectacles doesn’t let us flaunt the beautiful eye makeup we apply. Even I do wear spectacles. I know the trouble. They make us look like a geek. To skip this pain, most of them opt for contact lenses. But to those who are scared to use one, like me, just wear their spectacles without having much options.
But no worries, there are set of makeup tips, that will definitely make you look pretty even behind those frames.
Eye Makeup Lovers, Choose Bigger Frames

Use a good moisturiser and foundation with good coverage around nose.
Even if the spectacles are light like a feather, they always end up leaving those nasty red marks on either side of the nose. In order to hide that, we definitely need good products.
