Close to 2 out of every 3 adults are wearing prescription glasses in the US. That’s a lot of people. For the women out there, adjustments have to be made in your makeup routine in order to make sure you are rocking this new look. These tips will help you draw attention to you instead of just your glasses.
Use a tinted moisturizer to conceal the red marks left behind by your glasses whenever you decide to take them off.
Don’t forget to apply concealer under your eyes to make sure your eyes will not look sunken and tired from the extra shadow cast by your glasses. Making your under eyes bright will make your eyes pop even more.
Make sure to set your foundation with translucent setting powder to keep your frames from sticking to your foundation and removing it.
LINER: If your frames are not black, avoid black eyeliner. Instead, go for a deep burgundy or navy as these colors look good on every skin tone. Also, use a cat eye to draw even more attention to your eyes and make them pop. A good rule of thumb is the thicker your frames, the thicker your eyeliner should be.
SHADOW: Avoid heavy amounts of darker shades of eyeshadow to keep your eye from looking too heavy. Lighter shades and neutral colors are a must have to keep your eye look bright and fresh.
LASHES: Use a volumizing (not a lengthening) mascara along with an eyelash curler to keep those lashes plump in popping while keeping them from hitting your lenses.
Your glasses frame your eyes, but your eyebrows frame your glasses! Keep them looking neat and beautiful to make the most of the attention drawn to them by your glasses.
If you want to emphasize your glasses even more and rock the look, go for a bold lip to match the color of your lenses!
That’s it! No need to be intimidated or discouraged from wearing glasses. Rock the look and make it yours. Follow these tips for a guaranteed amazing look that will make you feel confident and beautiful.
