The Frame Game

Look to the SS19 catwalks to inspire your new-season eyewear and make-up


Denim was all over the catwalks, from Miu Miu to Isabel Marant (above). Give double denim a whole new spin by matching your clothes with your glasses: we love Vogue VO5152 in Blue*, £190. Rock the look with a strong brow – brush up hairs using CYO J’Tame Brow & Lash Gel in Clear Boots Exclusive £5/500 points, to create a feathered effect.


We all like a bit of bling! With glitzy statement pieces seen at Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana (above), try frames with glam details, such as Versace VE3205B in Black*, £270. Team them with pared- back make-up: just sweep L’Oréal Paris Back To Bronze Gentle Matte Bronzing Powder, £8.99/899 points, over your forehead, cheeks and jawline to give a golden glow.


If purple is your favourite colour, good news: Boss and House of Holland (above) were lapping it up. Smaller frames, such as LK Bennett LKB004 in Purple*, £190, put more emphasis on your facial structure, so pair with a sculpted look. Work chiselled cheekbones with Maybelline Master Contour V-Shape Duo, £7.99/799 points, an easy-to-blend highlighter and contour stick that will enhance your natural assets.


A strong suit never goes out of style – just like a classic black frame. So take the Giambattista Valli show (above) as an invitation to dig out your blazer, and team it with Michael Kors MK4047 in Black*, £230. Then add a bold berry lip – go for the No7 Matte Lip Crayon in Deep Plum Boots Exclusive £9/900 points, which has a lightweight finish that won’t dry out lips.

Top tips for serious specs appeal


Use a magnifying mirror when applying your make-up, as you can’t wear your specs.


Keep brows groomed: glasses frame your eyes, but your brows need to frame your glasses.


Buff translucent powder on your nose to minimise shine – and frame slippage.
