Makeup For Glasses

Wearing glasses is…I’ll admit, something I don’t like doing.  I just like wearing my contacts more.  I have been wearing my glasses recently, and I have changed up a few things in my makeup routine to accommodate them.

FOUNDATION – So, when I wear glasses, I like to use a full coverage foundation for a flawless finish.  I make sure to apply it on my nose where the nose piece rubs, and also set with a powder, so I don’t have to worry about it coming off.

BRIGHTEN – I like to really brighten up my eye area when wearing glasses, especially since the glasses cast a dark shadow underneath my eyes.  To combat that, I’ll make sure to use concealer and an undereye brightener.

BOLD BROWS – One thing I like to do is to make my brows extra bold.  I need them to show up more than usual since the glasses are the main focus. 

SHIMMER SHADOWS – I like to use a lot of shimmer when wearing glasses, I find that it makes them stand out more.  I always use a shimmery inner corner and browbone highlight.  

For the eye lids, I applied a medium brown shimmer shadow to the outer lids, a lighter bronze shade to the inner half of the lid, and a warm brown shade into the crease.  A warm brown gives the look more depth.  I also smudged the medium brown shadow underneath the lashline.

LINERS– I thinly line the top of my lashline with black, but I use a brightening liner on the bottom waterline, which helps to make the eyes appear more awake and full.

MASCARA – I always curl my lashes and apply a few coats of mascara.  I skip the falsies when wearing glasses, because then my lashes become too long and hit the lenses. Mascara is also important to make your eyes appear fuller.

LIPS AND CHEEKS– I used a coral blush and a pink lip for this look, to keep it looking fresh and pretty.

  1. Love these tips! I wear my glasses most of the time now, as contacts + staring at a computer don’t go very well together! Totally agree with the inner corners + black liner tip – nobody wants their eyes to get lost behind their frames 🙂 x
