1. PURCHASE THE CORRECT FRAMES
Finding the perfect pair of frames for your face shape can be a chore. Especially if you're buying them for eyesight correction and can't see to tell what new frames will look like on you! Luckily, VSP has a solution to that problem! You can enter the VSP "Frame Your Fashion" Sweepstakes on Facebook to see what frames work best for you! All you have to do is snap a selfie!
2. FRAME COLOR
This falls under picking out the perfect frame, but I felt that color was important enough for it's own category. Personally, I stick with dark blue, black or dark brown when it comes to my glasses. I feel those are the most versatile when it comes to every day looks and since I have to wear glasses every day that works for me. However, if I were just picking out glasses as an accessory, I would go for red frames, or even some of the printed frames. VSP has a wide selection of frame shapes and colors! You can check out some of the frame options in the below graphic.
I'm not a big fan of contacts. This becomes a problem when it's time to wear sunglasses. I can either order prescription sunglasses or transition lenses. I do neither. I discovered that I can wear a large enough pair of non-prescription sunglasses over my eyeglasses. I've been wearing sunglasses like this for years! For the most part, people can't tell unless they are really close. If the lenses are really dark on the sunglasses then people can't see your eyeglass frames. Check out this picture below where I'm pulling off this trick!

Wearing glasses can take away from people being able to see your eyes when there is a reflection. Anti-glare, also called anti-reflective coating, is my favorite lens enhancement. It's a special coating that lens manufacturers add to lenses to get rid of reflections and light glare. Instead of seeing what you're looking at in the glasses of your eyewear, people will be able to see your eyes.

5. BOLDER EYE MAKEUP
Even with the anti-glare, it can sometimes be hard to see your eye makeup while wearing glasses. I tend to apply the color a tad heavier on my eyes, or choose bold colors. I also learned a trick from Estee Lauder Pro-Makeup Artist Jake Johnson, that I should apply more of my eye shadow color between the crease and the eyebrow bone because this part of my eye area sits above the eyeglasses and is more visible.
