Help! I Don’t Know How to Play Up My Makeup With Glasses

Before: Violaine Gonzalez, 46

A coordinator for a major accounting firm, Violaine, the mother of two grown sons, restricts her makeup most mornings to a BB cream, mascara, and lipstick. “I really don’t know how to apply makeup correctly and I’m afraid to look silly doing it!” she says. On her wish list: to learn how to master makeup, to create a flawless and finished look in under 15 minutes, and to find eye makeup that is work-appropriate but distinctive enough to make her eyes noticeable under her glasses.

What Rae used of Violaine’s: Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette–Saint ($36, sephora.com). MAC Eye Shadow in Swiss Chocolate ($15, nordstrom.com). Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Charcoal ($15, clinique.com). Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara in Extreme Black ($19.50, clinique.com). Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in Light/Medium ($13, ulta.com). Sephora Collection Colorful Blush in Cinnamon Spice ($14, sephora.com; color no longer available). Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Apple Brandy ($15, clinique.com).

What she added: Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat ($25, lauramercier.com). MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy ($16, maccosmetics.com). YSL Touche Éclat highlighter ($40, yslbeautyus.com). Lancôme ‘Blush Subtil’ Shimmer Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush in Shimmer Mandarin Sky ($30, nordstrom.com).
