Can you suggest some simple eye makeup tips that can help enhance my facial features especially since I wear thick frames?

When wearing glasses the general rule of thumb is if you wear large, thick, black or brightly colored frames you should opt for more muted subtle tones of eyeshadow to enhance the look. For example soft pastels or earth colours are an excellent choice to be included in your eye makeup. Also, try a smokey effect as it works well to add softness and sophistication to your eye makeup without being dull or boring.
