Glasses can be stylish accessories and with the right makeup you can play up those gorgeous eyes. Here are a few vital makeup tips to make the most of your look.

Glasses and Dark Circles

While glasses tend to cover dark circles, heavy frames can also magnify them. To combat dark circles, use an under-eye concealer.

Choose a concealer that is a shade or two lighter than your foundation. Start applying the concealer under the base of your eye line, then blend it in well with a sponge or your fingertips. Following application, set concealer with powder.

For touch-ups on the go, check out our Beautifully Bare Lightweight Concealer Stick. Hide dark circles and give your eyes a brighter boost by using the Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter kit. To improve concealer application, apply a dab of eye cream before using a concealer to help plump and hydrate skin to minimize dark circles.

The Perfect Eye Shadow When Wearing Glasses

Use an eye-catching color that complements the color of your frames, and doesn’t compete with them. Shades that are lighter than the color of your glasses will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. A shimmery accent in the middle of the lid will also enhance the brightness of your eyes.

Looking for a more fun and playful look? Experiment with bolder colors that compliment your skin tone and contrast with the color of your frames.

Have glasses with thin frames? Try eyeshadow that gives you a smoky eye look.

Have glasses with thick frames? Try to keep the bold shadow to a minimum, so as not to compete with the boldness of your frames.

Eyeliner Essentials While Wearing Glasses

Eyeliner instantly adds intensity to your look, helping to define your eyes while wearing glasses. Here are a few eyeliner makeup tips:

  • Stay as close to your lash line as possible while applying liner.
  • Vary the thickness of your eyeliner according to the thickness of your frames. Experiment to see what thickness works best with your frames.
  • Choose an eyeliner that is a shade or two lighter than your frames so that it stands out. Find the perfect shade from our range of eyeliner products.
  • Draw more attention to your eyes by smudging the liner a little along your lower and upper lids.

To make your eyes look bigger, use a white or flesh colored eye pencil on your lower lid and waterline and blend well. Rock your version of this look with the Eye Widener.

Trim Brows and Curl Lashes

Glasses frame your eyes, but your eyebrows frame your glasses. Get rid of any strays and fill in with a Brow Pencil or powder where needed.

For quick and easy curls that last all day, try the Eyelash Curler. Use our 3-in-1 Mascara to help lengthen, define, and volumize your lashes.

When you’re focusing on the eyes, downplay the lips. Keep it simple by using a nude shade or a lip gloss.
