How to achieve this elusive sense of harmony? Consider the balance between lips and eyes when glasses are on. Says Greenberg, “Pick one thing to be a statement—eyes, lips, or glasses—and let the other elements complement that.” In the same vein, eyeshadow shouldn’t compete with colored frames. “Maybe you want to do something graphic with black or brown frames, and then something neutral with colored frames.
