Make Up Tips for Glasses Wearers
Your make up will differ if you are long sighted or short sighted, there isn't one look for people who wear glasses.
If you are short sighted and have difficulty seeing far away, your eyes will look smaller in glasses. This means you need to focus on making your eyes look bigger unless they are huge already.
Using a white liner on the inner rim of your eyes can make your eyes look bigger. I especially pay attention to the corners of my eyes. A lighter eyeshadow close to the lashes will make them look bigger and a dark liner all around the outside of the eyes can make your eyes pop.
It's important to frame the eyes so if you have eyelash curlers, which can be picked up cheaply if you do not have any, use them to open the eyes. A great volumising mascara like Benefit Roller lash will really help too. The trademarked Hook 'N Roll brush grabs, separates and lifts curls and it lasts all day.
Long sighted make up tips
If you are long sighted and able to see well far away but not close up, your eyes will look bigger in glasses. You need makeup that will flatter your eyes but minimise them.
Using a dark liner on the inside of the eye and brown eyeshadow on the lid will make your eyes look smaller.
It's very important that your eye makeup is blended well as everything is magnified. Ensure your mascara is natural looking and not clumpy, I do this by using a clean mascara wand after applying my mascara to go back my lashes.
Invest in a magnifying mirror
Invest in a good magnifying mirror so you can see exactly how the makeup is applied. This is especially important if you travel a lot as not every hotel bathroom will have one.
Under your eyes
Glasses can cast shadows under your eyes, to combat this use an illuminating concealer under your eyes and in the corners and blend well. Touche Eclat by YSL is a makeup artist favourite, I also like L'oreal Touche Magique which does the same job but is considerably cheaper.
Red marks on your nose
The less foundation you put on your nose the better as your glasses will rest on your nose. A matt foundation on the nose area helps to prevent the area get oily and thus your glasses could slip.
If you do not have a matt foundation, powder the area lightly to help absorb oil and set the foundation.
If your glass frames cover your brows you don't need to be too careful but a good groomed eyebrow will frame your eyes beautifully. If you are long sighted any stray hairs will show up so be sure that you pluck any stray hairs under your brow line.
