Makeup is a great tool for filling in where natural lacked, or for enhancing your natural beauty. There are countless types of cosmetics and so many ways to use them to create simple or dramatic effects. Having a talent with colors helps, but this is a skill you can learn. If you wear eyeglasses, making up your face is a bit more complicated. For some, it doesn’t seem worth the effort since your eyes are covered. But there are ways to make it all work together.
From flattering lip colors to neutrals and highlighters, there is no end to the makeup strategies you can explore while wearing glasses.
People who wear strong prescriptions may appear bug-eyed. The thick lenses make their eye look larger than life. Luckily, you can reduce this effect with liquid and matte eyeshadows. If this describes you, avoid glittery eye color and powders. They are used to make the eyes appear bigger.
In addition, for lenses that seem to shrink the eyes, steer clear of dark eyeshadows and use light eyeliner. Stick with lighter shades across the board.
Like the thickness of your lenses, the style of your frames will impact the best makeup options for you. For dark frames, go for neutral colors, with frameless designs you can pull off bold eye makeup.
Frame size plays a big role. Larger frames allow for more experimentation because more of your eye is visible. Pay more attention to highlighting the brow area with smaller frames.
