Easy Makeup for Glasses Wearers

Hello ladies,

Due to a small eye irritation, for 10 days I could not wear my contact lenses, so I had to be a bit creative and quick on my feet when it came to my eye makeup, so it will show behind the glasses, but be easy enough to do.

So if you are in my situation or wear glasses full time, here are a few tips to achieve a nice, clean eye look.

Tip one: make sure your eyebrows are well shaped as they will frame your glasses.

Tip two: use matte neutral shades that blend seamlessly together (it will help you a lot) to define the eye shape.

Tip three: use a light shimmery shade on the eyelid to "hide" any blending mistakes that you may have.

Tip four: use a beige/nude color eyeliner pencil on the lower waterline, to add brightness to the eye.

Tip five: you can frame the eye with a soft dark brown eye pencil, and then blend it out with a dark brown eye shadow (it does not need to be as perfect as a liquid/ gel liner).

Tip six: use a volumizing mascara, not a lengthening one, because you want your lashes to be defined but not reach your glass lenses.

Tip seven: you can add a pop of color (contrasting with your eye color) on the lower lash line, to make the eyes stand out even more, behind the glasses.

Tip eight: if you are comfortable, you can use a bold color lipstick, to pull the attention away from your eyes/ glasses.

Extra tip: Add a small amount of eye shadow primer to the bridge of the nose, where the glasses sit, to prevent the foundation from slipping away.

Hope you enjoyed the tips and the look (if you want to see a video tutorial on it, head on to my Instagram page ), and if you did, please like and subscribe, to ensure you do not miss out on any posts. Lots of love 💖
