Makeup Tips for Glasses

Many bespectacled women find the art of mastering eye makeup for glasses a challenge. Fear no more, we have helpful tips to make your eyes shine through your lenses!

First of all, the design of your frames is very important. When buying fashion frames, make sure you pick a pair that matches your face shape. The style, material and color of your frames will help you determine the kind of makeup you want to use.

If you have thick or colorful frames, try not to overdo it. Try lining your upper and lower lids with soft black eyeliner, curl your lashes, and apply volumizing mascara. Stick with a neutral palette (i.e. apricot or sand) if you want to wear shadow. And if your frames are black, steer clear of the strong smoky eye, or risk looking too “crowded” in the eye area.

You can play up your eyes a bit more if your glasses are rimless. Try a metallic bronze shadow, which
you can apply sheer or layered for more intensity, and follow that with a dark liner. Smudge the line
slightly to add depth. Then curl your lashes and give them a couple of coats of a volumizing mascara.

If you have a strong prescription, your eyes can appear larger. To balance the size of the eyes, try applying black or brown eyeliner to the inside rim or blend light smoky eye makeup for the same minimizing affect.

And don’t forget your brows. While glasses frame your face, eyebrows frame your eyes. Fill in
with a powder pencil for subtle definition. Here’s the trick: Contrary to what people may think, under eyeglasses, less makeup is more! So keep it simple.
