Glasses are a helpful tool that improves sight and helps the everyday life of many. Besides that, glasses can be a fabulous and glamorous accessory that can elevate your whole look. Most women that wear glasses tend to neglect or struggle with makeup, especially eye-makeup; glasses make application a bit trickier. But do not worry, there are certain tips and tricks that will help you enjoy the best of both worlds: makeup and glasses.
1. Focus On Your Eyelashes
Even if you are wearing glasses, your eyes are still the center of your face and the main point that gets attention and looks from other people around you. That is why you do not need to hide your eyes behind your glasses; you need to bring even more attention to them by adding some nice and subtle magnetic lashes!
Magnetic lashes will tie your makeup look together and bring special attention to your beautiful eyes without the hassle of applying falsies or getting extensions. All you have to do is apply a bit of Magnetic Liquid Eyeliner to your eyelid, wait for it to dry, and then just put the eyelashes in place; the magnetic force will keep them in place all day long! Yes, it is that easy!
For glasses wearers, the tried-and-true choices are our Pixy lashes, as well as out or Allure lashes. They are subtle and appropriate for the daytime, they transition to the night easily, and they are perfect for wearing under glasses. And you know what? AddictaLash made a special bundle magnetic lash kit for glasses wearers!
2. Pay Special Attention to Your Eyebrows
Your brows frame and shape your face, and they are the only prominent feature that is going to show above the frames of your eyewear; that is why you need to pay them special attention when it comes to doing your makeup.
To make your eyebrows more prominent, brush them upwards and use a brow pencil or powder to fill in areas that are a bit sparse. However, make sure not to go overboard while filling them in. You can also use a brow gel to ensure that your eyebrows stay in place all day long.
3. Add Colour and Shimmer to Your Eyelids
Many women feel like their eyes disappear behind their frames. To stop this from happening, apply some subtle but effective eyeshadow in colours that compliment your eye colour, as well as the color of your frames. If you are extra daring, you can also add some shimmery eyeshadow, which will take your look to another level.
4. Apply Concealer
Glasses can exacerbate under-eye circles, which is why you need to apply concealer under your eyes for a brightening effect. Depending on your skin tone, a color-correcting concealer in an orange or green shade can work wonders for brightening and color-correcting.
5. Set Your Makeup with Setting Powder
The main issue with glasses is that they sit directly on your face and skin, which messes up the makeup, especially during long hours throughout the day.
If you want to keep your base makeup in place, applying a transparent makeup setting powder to your entire face might be the key that solves this issue. Setting your makeup with a setting powder as the last step in your makeup routine will help your foundation from coming off onto your glasses, and it will also eliminate the need to reapply your makeup throughout the day.
With a little practice and experimentation, you'll be able to find the perfect makeup look that complements your glasses and enhances your overall appearance.
