Makeup for Glasses Wearers: Tips and Tricks
As a glasses wearer, you know that finding the right makeup to complement your frames can be a challenge. But with the right tools and techniques, you can achieve a look that is both stylish and flattering. In this blog, we’ll explore some of the best makeup tricks and tips for glasses wearers, so you can feel confident and beautiful every time you leave the house.
The first thing to consider when choosing makeup for glasses is the color of your frames. If your glasses are a light color, such as silver or tortoiseshell, you’ll want to select makeup that complements the tones in your frames. On the other hand, if your glasses are a bold color, such as red or blue, you’ll want to decide on makeup that contrasts with your frames to help them stand out.
Next, it’s important to consider the size and shape of your glasses. If you have large frames, you’ll want to avoid using heavy eye makeup, as this can make your frames appear even larger. On the other hand, if you have small frames, you can play with different eye makeup styles to create a more dramatic look.
One of the biggest challenges for glasses wearers is eye makeup. When wearing glasses, your eyes are the focus, so it’s essential to choose eye makeup that enhances your eyes, not detracts from them. Here are a few tips to help you achieve a flawless eye look:
- Use a neutral eye shadow color: A neutral eye shadow color, like the Fruit Pigmented® Pretty Naked Palette, from 100% PURE, with beige or taupe, is a great choice for glasses wearers. These colors help to even out the skin tone around your eyes and create a subtle, natural look.
- Play up your lashes: If you wear glasses, it’s important to make sure your lashes are visible. To do this, use a volumizing mascara and curl your lashes before applying. This will help to open up your eyes and make them appear more defined.
- Line your eyes: If you wear glasses, it’s important to line your eyes to help them stand out. Decide on a neutral eyeliner color, such as the Creamy Long Last Liner from 100% PURE, and apply it to the top of your lash line. This will help to create the illusion of thicker lashes and make your eyes appear more defined.
- Highlight your brow bone: Another great way to make your eyes stand out when wearing glasses is to highlight your brow bone. Choose a light, shimmery eye shadow and apply it to the area just above your eyebrows. This will help to create a subtle, natural look that will enhance your eyes.
Another significant factor to consider when choosing makeup for glasses is the type of frames you wear. If you wear rimless frames, you’ll want to select eye makeup that is more subtle, as the lack of a frame can make your eyes appear larger. On the other hand, if you wear bold frames, you can play with different eye makeup styles to create a more dramatic look.
In addition to eye makeup, it’s also important to consider your lip color when wearing glasses. If you have bold frames, you may want to decide on a neutral lip color, such as a nude or a light pink from 100% PURE. This will help to balance out your look and keep the focus on your glasses. On the other hand, if you have subtle frames, you can play with different lip colors to create a more dramatic look.
Finally, it’s important to choose the makeup that is long-lasting and won’t smudge or transfer onto your glasses. To do this, pick waterproof and smudge-proof products, such as eyeliner and mascara, and set your makeup with a translucent powder like the Bamboo Blur Powder to help it stay in place throughout the day. You may also want to consider using a primer before applying your makeup to create a smooth, even surface for your cosmetics to adhere to.
In conclusion, glasses wearers don’t have to compromise their makeup routine to accommodate their frames. By considering the color and size of your glasses, playing up your lashes and brow bone, and choosing long-lasting, smudge-proof products, you can create a stunning look that perfectly complements your glasses. So go ahead and experiment with different eye and lip colors, and have fun creating a look that is uniquely you.
