Makeup to compliment your glasses

Heather Card Wed 02 Jan 2019
Here are some every day tips for applying your makeup to wear with your glasses.

Have you thought about ditching the eye makeup all together and just concentrating on making your lips the focal point of your makeup? Why not try a Bright Red or a more exotic mauve lip or step into Autumn with a burgandy lip this suits most skin tones and hair colours.

Make sure you moisturise and exfoliate those lips before trying this look.


  • Curl your lashes to ensure they do not touch the lenses , apply mascara only to the top lash line skip the bottom.
  • If your lenses magnify the eye try lining your waterline to define the eye and make it appear smaller.
  • If your lenses make the eye look smaller, apply a highlighter or flesh tone liner into the inner corner of the eye to open it out and make it appear bigger.

Thick Frame = Thick eyeliner

Thin Frame =Thin Eyeliner 

  • Why not use a coloured kohl or gel liner instead of using brown and black eyeliner or why not try a coloured mascara applied over the top of black mascara as this will help mute the colour but will give the lashes a nice tint without being too dramatic.
  • A neutral palette works best on eyes behind lenses as this adds dimension to the eye.
  • Light non shimmery shades applied to the centre of the lid and blended into a slightly darker matte shade into the crease will add further definition to the eye.
  • Apply a lighter concealer under the eye to prevent the frames from casting too much shadow and creating the appearance of dark circles.
  • Brows need to be clean, tidy up any strays, fill in any gaps with a brow pomade, gel, powder or pencil to help frame your face your brow should not be a focal point of a makeup.
  • Applying a flick with your eyeliner automatically elongates your eye and makes it appear bigger, apply the flick towards the top corner of your frame.

I hope you found these tips helpful for creating your everyday makeup look to suit your frames.
