It also got me thinking about flattering makeup for when I'm wearing my eyeglasses. I've read so many different makeup rules for glasses wearers that it kind of amuses me. Some of the "rules": lots of liner versus very little liner; bold colors on the lips (to draw attention away from the eyes) versus neutral colors on the lips (to not make the face look "cluttered"); neutral colors on the eyes versus bold colors on the eyes (to make them stand out); no shimmer or sparkle on the eyes (satin or matte only) versus shimmery shadows on the eyes; and so on. Sheesh. It does seem like there are a couple common ideas, though. Concealer under the eyes and well-defined brows. But the funny thing is, generally speaking, that is true for non-glasses wearers. So, my conclusion? There are no rules. Wear whatever makeup you want to wear.

What do you think? Do you follow makeup "rules"?
