Wearing glasses should not limit you from looking gorgeously stylish so if you’re a little self conscious about your specs or just wondering about how to improve your makeup routine then take a look at my helpful tips… Hopefully some of them will come in handy.
Since the frames are close to the brow bone it can bring a lot of attention to your eyebrows so it is a good idea to keep your brows well trimmed, tidy and filled in if needed.
Depending on the style of your glasses you will probably find that when you wear bold eye shadow you can’t really see it as it is hidden by the frames. For a more natural look try some nude shades with black or brown mascara and eyeliner to define the eye. If you want to add a little bit of colour there are some very bold liners available that you could sweep along your upper lashline.
When applying eyeshadow consider how your glasses make your eyes look, do they magnify your eyes or do your eyes appear smaller? If your eyes appear bigger you can use darker, bolder shades as this give the appearance that your eyes are a little smaller, and if your eyes appear smaller you can use more natural softer colours to open your eyes and make them appear slightly larger (a little highlight/white eyeshadow at the inner corners usually works nicely too).
Apply Plenty of Mascara
To give your eyes more definition and make them look gorgeous apply 2-3 coats of black or brown mascara. This will create a little bit of extra volume and length giving you lashes to be envious of.
Add A Rosy Glow to Your Cheekbones
When you are wearing glasses you want to draw attention away from the glasses and towards your gorgeous features, an easy way of doing this is to apply a blush to give a nice rosy cheek which will warm the face up.
Don’t Forget About The Lips
Your glasses may be hiding your eyes slightly so why not make a feature out of your lips. Play with lipsticks, glosses or lipstains to find a really nice bold colour that looks great and you feel comfortable wearing. Personally I am a huge fan of the liquid mattes by NYX and Huda Beauty.
Hide Dark Circles
If you suffer from dark circles under your eyes, apply concealer to help cover them as your glasses can draw attention to them. Yellow-toned concealer is good for covering up dark circles on lighter skin and orange-based tones blend best into darker skin. You should use a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your foundation. Avoid greasy or chalky products that are too pink or white as this can make you look older or look like a rabbit caught in headlights, which is not flattering on anyone.
