Makeup Tips for Eye Glass Wearers


Wearing glasses doesn’t mean you should skimp on your eye makeup. Glasses will bring attention to your face and your eyes, and your eye makeup should be clean and defined. Here are some tips on making your eyes shine under your glasses.

  • Compliment the frames of your glasses – If your glasses are brown, keep your makeup warm to coordinate with your frames. By doing this, your face will look more sophisticated

  • Wear a bold lip color – If you have a thick frame, the bold lip color will balance out your face

  • Define your brows – Your glasses will bring attention to untamed brows, so make sure to tweeze them regularly

  • Eyeliner should match the thickness of your frames – the thicker your frame, the thicker your eyeliner should be to keep balance

  • Don’t apply eyeshadow beyond the frame line – Going beyond the frame can create a messy look

  • Get a good concealer – wearing glasses can amplify dark circles or puffiness. Make sure to use a concealer with good coverage to keep your eyes looking bright and fresh.

  • Waterproof makeup is a must – to avoid getting make up smudges on your lenses, wearing waterproof mascara and eyeliner will reduce that from happening
