Tips for Wearing Makeup with Glasses

Makeup with glasses  can get a bit frustrating, if you’re not a makeup pro.

With your eyes behind the glasses it is a great excuse not to put on any makeup.

But for those who wear makeup with glasses may find obstacles that eye makeup and glasses are not a good match. But don’t you know that this can be avoided? There are proper ways to avoid those mistakes and still enjoy wearing both at the same time.

Tips for Wearing Makeup with Glasses

Avoid the mistakes of wearing makeup with glasses with these simple tips and tricks!

1. Skin

Our eyes are not the only that needs some TLC because of the glass frames. Our skin needs it too. So before applying any makeup to the skin – make sure that it is clean and moisturize. And to smoothen the skin never skip on a concealer and a lightweight foundation.

2. Eyeshadows

There is no way you could wear smokey eyes when wearing glasses as those would create a raccoon effect because glasses would create that shadows through the eye area. Though you also need to highlight those eyes. So with eyeshadow application try a more subtle shade with proper highlighting and blending to achieve that extra drama.


3. Eyeliners

A Must! Because we’d like to accentuate those eyes and not blend it in with your glass frames. Avoid to use an eyeliner that matches those frames in doing so it is best to check out for eyeliner shades that is at least a shade or two lighter than your frames. Another great trick is tightlining the eyes!

4. Eyebrows

Whether with glasses or without never forget to groom those brows. Tweeze your brows to the right shape – never ever over tweeze to a one liner brow as this will make you look older. With brows with spaces – brush and fill it in with powder to properly emphasize your brows.

5. Eyelash Curling

Curling your eyelashes will make those eyes pop! Check out this trick on how to properly curl those lashes via thebeautydepartment


6. Mascara

We want to avoid those raccoon eyes so we want a subtle look as much as possible. Do not over do your mascara and you may want to avoid mascara to your lower lashes. But if you can’t skip on doing this routine use a clear mascara and problem solved! Check out Maybelline New York Great Lash Clear Mascara for Lash and Brow

7. Concealer

Conceal dark under eye! To combat this choose a concealer that is not too heavy. Try MAC Pro Longwear Concealer which leaves your skin looking radiant and smooth- without the need for touch ups!

8. Frames

Where opposites do not attract! Thick for Thick – frame to eyeliner same rules apply if you are using a thin frame.
