As a child, my thick-framed eyeglasses became a direct target for perfect-vision classmates to taunt and tease me. Fast forward 10 years later and now all the "cool" kids are buying up Buddy Holly-style eyewear to sport with their '80s nostalgia Pac-Man and Star Trek tees. While I won't digress on this authentic attempt to appear geek-chic, I would like to tell my fellow spectacle-wearing ladies to not allow their prescription (or faux) frames to discourage them from getting dolled up. And who better to illustrate my point that it is indeed possible to wear makeup and not have it get lost under your eyewear then "Parks and Recreation" actress Rashida Jones.

The freckled-face beauty always looks stunning when she wears her black glasses on the red carpet. Her eyeshadow is never overdone, eyelashes appear extremely long and she nails the rosy cheek and lip combo without appearing way beyond years. So, how does she do it?

I asked two of my favorite spec-wearing makeup artists, Bobbi Brown and Sonia Kashuk, for their no-fail makeup tips. Click through the slideshow below to find out what formulas don't magnify imperfections, the lip color that balances out bold frames, plus celebrity inspiration on how to pull off the look.

  • Wear makeup in moderation

    "Wearing glasses draws plenty of attention to your eyes, so it’s best to keep your makeup simple. If you overdo your eye makeup, it will just clash with your frames and end up looking garish. Stick to <a href="http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/cms/landing/tortoise_collection.tmpl#">neutral shadows and liners</a>, and save the bright, bold colors for your <a href="http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/product/2342/22750/Makeup/Lips/Lip-Colors/Rich-Lip-Color/FH12/index.tmpl">lips</a> and cheeks," says Bobbi Brown.

  • Don't ignore your eyebrows

    "I am a believer in well-groomed eyebrows," says Sonia Kashuk. "If you use a very thin angle brush [and <a href="http://www.target.com/p/sonia-kashuk-brow-kit-arch-alert/-/A-10333862#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=arch alert">cream shadow</a>], it makes for filling in sparse spaces with mini strokes better. Then comb through with a <a href="http://www.target.com/p/sonia-kashuk-core-tools-spoolie-brush/-/A-11909007#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=spoolie">spoolie brush</a> so brows don't appear drawn on."

  • Eyeliner is essential

    "Adjusting liner thickness is important when you’re wearing glasses – if your frames are thicker, you’ll want to apply a thicker line to the upper lash so that eyes stand out. If your frames are thinner, a softer liner works great," says Brown. Kashuk adds, "Upper lash lines give the most drama, while lining the lower lids can look too strong or dark, thus aging you."

  • Balance bold frames with bold lips

    "This style is strong so it's great to play off the look with a red mouth -- giving power to the lip that complements heaviness on eyes," explains Kashuk. "It's incredibly classic." (Chloe Sevigny, WireImage)

  • When in doubt, go neutral

    "Use a light hand when applying your eye makeup, and be sure to blend everything carefully. The last thing you want your glasses to do is to magnify any mistakes," says Brown. "Higher shine and shimmery products intensify 'flaws.' Stick to <a href="http://www.target.com/p/sonia-kashuk-eye-shadow-palette/-/A-733038#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=Eye Palette in Perfectly Neutral">matte, satin finishes</a>. Even when you don't want to wear makeup, using an eyelash curler and applying mascara can add umph," according to Kashuk. (Bristol Palin, Getty Images)
