 6 Makeup Tips & Tricks For Glasses Wearers

1. So fresh and so clean

Make sure to prep the skin starting with a good cleanser for a clean base in the AM and to wash away all the makeup, oils, and dirt in the evening. Any left-over makeup + frames sitting on the nose and cheeks can be the culprit for surprise blemishes.

2. Glow baby glow

The best compliment to any makeup look is glowy, moisturized skin. Before applying makeup, make sure you apply any serums, moisturizers and face oils that work for you to nourish and prep skin.

3. Don’t make me Blush

A little blush and soft focus highlight go a long way to add color and definition to the face!

For a sleek, lifted look that compliments any frame apply blush slightly above the cheekbone, blending up and out towards the temple. Next add a bit of highlighter slightly above your blush for a soft glow.

Also add your cream highlighter right below the brow arch and in the inner corner of the eyes for a beautiful twinkle that enhances the eyes.

4. Lashes up and out

Make sure to curl your lashes then use a non-flaking, curling mascara to avoid lashes hitting your lenses. To apply, start at the base of the lash and wiggle side to side to evenly coat and separate for a more wide eyed, awake look.

Pulling up under the arch of your brow with one hand and applying your mascara with the other will lift your lash line and give you better precision when applying your mascara. This tip is crucial to anyone who may have trouble seeing without their glasses and applying makeup.

5. Brows that wow

Depending on the shape and size of your frames, brows may either peak out above them or show through the lens. To achieve the perfect arch while wearing any specs, start by brushing brows up and out to lift the face then, with your pencil, fill in the bottom brow line from the inner to the outer arch. Go back in and draw light, hair-like strokes for a polished arch every time. 

Set with a clear gel to hold in place or opt for a tinted gel if you want more fullness.

6. Give me some lip

Add a splash of color to the lips to help balance out your look, especially with frames that are larger and draw more attention towards the upper half of the face. A pH transforming lip stain provides the perfect wash of pink with long lasting power so you do not have to worry about reapplying throughout the day.
