Live in the D – If you wear glasses and love to wear eye make-up, you know it can be a struggle to show off your eyes. Whether you want to make your eyes pop or have a statement eye shadow look, glasses always seem to get in the way. Thankfully, Local 4 Style Editor Jon Jordan has advice on how to make sure your eyes stick out without being too much.
First thing Jon Jordan wanted host Tati Amare, guest-host Braylon Edwards, and “Live in the D’s” Michelle Oliver to know is that your corrective lens determines the shape and size of your eyes. Jordan continued to explain near-sighted eyes make your eyes appear smaller and far-sighted eyes appear large and expanded.
Oliver, who is near-sighted, demonstrated one of the tips given by Jordan, which was to apply a soft eyeshadow to your lower-lash line. This technique gives an illusion that your eyes is larger than it is. When it comes to far-sightedness you should not wear heavy eyeliner because your eyes will only appear bigger.
