Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Collection.

Inspired by her own tortoise shell frames, Bobbi Brown has created this new Tortoise Shell Collection to complement glasses, not compete with them. I do not wear glasses, but I can see my self wearing the shades of bronze, gold and espresso.

The tortoise cases that the palettes come in are very elegant and beautiful too.  They are a new type of palette, as it seems to raise open and have two palettes of four shadows on top of each other.  If you look carefully at the image, you will notice how unique it is.

Bobbi Brown says:

When it comes to eye makeup and glasses, I believe in keeping things simple. It's not about piling on more makeup - it's about using the right makeup and techniques.

Be sure to check out Bobbi's tips on wearing makeup and glasses after the collection information.

Bobbi's tips on wearing makeup and glasses:

Less is absolutely more.
Wearing glasses draws attention to your eyes, so keep your eye makeup simple.  Stick to neutral shades like Amber Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, and save bold colors for your lips.  Don't forget corrector and concealer - a must for all women, but especially if you are wearing glasses.

Eyeliner is essential.
Adjusting liner thickness is important when you're wearing glasses - if your frames rre thick, apply a thicker line to the upper lash line so that eyes stand out.  If your frames are thinner, a softer line works great.

Make sure the brows are defined.
Eyeglass frames draw attention to the brows, so be sure to keep your arches well groomed.  Pluck or trim any scraggly hairs, and fill in holes or sparse spots with a brow pencil or powder shadow.

The tortoise cases certainly are pretty, with the eyeshadows of course, too. I see Bobbi put on her glasses in different segments, but always thought they were black. I honestly never realized that they had a tortoise shell pattern.
I like Bobbi Brown collections and this one looks especially rare. Alot of the same colors she puts in other palettes, but pretty together, all the same.
