Make Up for Glasses

14 Feb

Make Up for GlassesThese days, eye wear is one of the coolest fashion accessories out there. Glasses are no longer a frumpy accessory of the past. Whether you’re a daily user or just can’t be bothered to put in your contact lenses for the day (or week!), there are a few tricks to getting your eyes to pop under those stylish specs. 


Complete your usual foundation make up. It’s probably best to keep your skin matte for the day, as make up can be smudged as your glasses slide up and down, especially near your eye and nose area. Anything shimmery/dewy/shiny might become too messy to deal with.

Glasses can cast shadows under your eyes, so if you already have dark eyecircles or eyebags, this can make them look even worse! Instead, remember to apply concealer and sweep a layer of loose powder on top of the concealer to really ‘set’ it – concealer tends to slip and stick onto your glasses, so it’s vital that it stays on!

It’s best to avoid any shimmer of any kind – be it illuminators, shimmer blush, highlighters. It makes the whole face a tad ‘clown-like’ as there is so much going on. The idea is that your glasses are already a big ‘accessory’ to your face, so your make up should compliment it, not try to overpower it.


Depending on your diagnosis and glasses frames, there are two options for this one. If your eye glasses make your eyes appear larger, then it’s best to skip heavy eyeliner and dark shadows – talk about raccoon eyes!

Likewise, if your eye glasses make your eyes appear smaller, this is vital too – skip the dark makeup! It will only make your eyes seem smaller and give a ‘squinty’ look (been there, done that.)

Instead, try to keep your eyes looking naturally pretty, as they are! Sweep some light colored shadow on and then apply a thin line of eyeliner (liquid is wonderful, if not, pencil is best). After, apply mascara on your top lash line only. (Applying mascara on your bottom lash line could look like dark circles.)

Probably the best thing to do is this: keep your brows groomed. Your face looks instantly polished with groomed brows. Simply choose your eyebrow product of choice and fill in any sparse areas, leaving a nicely defined brow.


One of the top make up tips for eyeglass wearers is saving those bright and bold colors for your lips! Want a pop of pink? Do it on your lips! What about some violet? Your lips! It’ll make all of the difference ladies!

In general, make up should be natural looking. The general rule is to keep it simple because your glasses are already a big statement on your face!
