6 Makeup Tips for Women Who Wear Glasses

Want to make your eyes pop while donning your specs?

If there is one thing glasses wearers are afraid of, it’s getting the makeup just right under those frames. Whether your frames are retro-liciously thick and bold, or elegantly thin and modern, it can be a little difficult to nail the eye makeup so that your peepers stand out underneath the wire and plastic.

Good thing there are a few simple tricks you can learn to draw attention to your peepers. From getting your eyeliner down pat to knowing just how to avoid your mascara’d lashes from hitting your lenses, we’ve rounded up the tips you need to get your bespectacled look perfected. Head up to the gallery to check them out.

Adopt a bold lip look to complement bold frames

When it comes to thick and bold frames, you don’t want them to drown out the rest of your features entirely, which is why balancing out the top half of your face and the bottom half is a good idea. You can stick to classic matte or even glossy lips - feel free to experiment with vibrant shades like hot pink or eye-catching coral. You can be generous with your eye makeup, too.

Apply concealer under your eyes to make them look less sunken

Glasses tend to make your eyes look deeper than they actually are. You might believe they hide those dark circles under your eyes, but the lenses could actually magnify them and make them look more obvious instead. Don’t skip the concealer - invest in one that brightens the under eye area with illuminating pigments.

Use an eyelash curler to prevent lashes from touching your lenses

Before you start on your makeup proper, it’s a good idea to grab an eyelash curler and focus on curling your lashes from the roots. This helps to keep your lashes from touching your glasses when you blink.

Waterproof eye makeup is the way to go

If you’re currently using non-waterproof mascara, you might find your mascara flaking off onto the lenses of your glasses. Non-waterproof mascara and eyeliner can also tend to make your eyes look more panda-like by the end of the day, which might make your eyes look sunken and tired.

The cat eye look is foolproof

Winged or cat eye looks make the most impact, which is essentially what you need to aim for when wearing glasses. Glasses can take away from the defined look of your eyes, so shaping your eyes are a surefire way to create a sharper and more wide-eyed look. If your frames aren’t overly bold (i.e. thin wire, rimless, etc), you can try a double winged line to make your eyes stand out.

Take note of the colour of your frames and the shade of the eyeliner you choose

Black frames are easy to match with any shade of eyeliner, but if your frames aren’t truly 100% black, try smoky grey or dark brown liner for a softer look. Remember to keep the liner close to your lash line - you want the product to help define your eyes more than make them seem overly distracting.
