Whether you wear your trusty specs to better see the beautiful world around you, to read your weekly progress report or just as a fashion statement, you can, at times, feel like they are bringing your outfit down a notch or two.

But fear not!
Look less frumpy and more sexy librarian in no time.
Here’s a list of the top 5 ways to dress up your specs.
A cat eye, bright lippy, defined brows, or a smoked out crease are all great ways to dress up your glasses using every girl’s best friend: makeup.
The perfect spec enhancing combination: bring out cheekbones using highlighter and contour.
Don’t forget to add some highlighter right beneath your brow bone and on the bridge of your nose.
Layer on the mascara or add false lashes for extra oomph.
A cat eye makes your eyes appear larger and more defined.
A metallic or warm toned shadow can really make eyes pop.
Go intense with your lip colour choice, whether bright for the last breath of summer or dark for Autumn.
And, of course, keeps those brows on fleek by filling them in with your choice of powder, pencil or pomade.
Then add your beautiful Semi- transparent Dolce specs and you’re all dolled up and ready to go.
