For all you beauty-loving glasses wearers out there, we wanted to share with you a few makeup tips that work great with those frames and will make your eyes pop, even behind your lenses! With that being said, let's get into the 5 makeup tips we think are essential in your makeup routine.



1. Curl Your Lashes

Use an eyelash curler to prevent your lashes from touching the lenses of your glasses. Curl at the base of your lashes and apply pressure for a few seconds. Try applying a long-lasting mascara that won't leave smudge marks on your lenses.


2. Define Your Brows!

Eyeglasses tend to draw attention to your brows, so you need to be sure they are properly groomed and taken care of. Pluck any stray hairs and start filling them in with an eyebrow pencil, powder, or pomade. Eyebrows help frame your face so properly shaping them will make everything look polished and put together.


3. Go Neutral

In regards to eyeshadow, neutral tones will keep your eyes from looking too heavy through your lenses. In addition, these tones will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. You can even try applying a pearly champagne color that will reflect light and subtly draw attention to your eyes. 


4. Stay Simple

Sometimes, a face full of makeup in addition to your spectacles can make things look a little bit overwhelming. Simple face makeup will ensure that all attention is on your eyes. Be sure to apply powder to prevent smearing underneath your glasses. If you feel like you need a little something extra, a bold lip is a great way to jazz up your makeup look without drawing too much attention away from your eyes.


5. Base Your Eyeliner Off of Your Frames 

Making sure your eyeliner compliments your frames is a simple trick that will help make your eyes pop. It's important to ensure that there is a sense of balance between the definition of your eyes and your frames. If you wear thicker frames, try applying thicker eyeliner to make your eyes stand out. If you wear thinner frames, try applying a thin line.
