Top 10 Make-up For Glasses Ideas

If you are an eyeglass wearer then you know that you have to be careful with the eye make-up. The glasses already draw attention to your face, so you have to keep your make-up tidy, defined, and perfect. It’s not true that if you put on makeup it’s a waste of time and it will hide behind them, just do it the right way and everyone will see your best feature. Don’t have concerns about the mascara, if it smudges and brushes against the glasses – use waterproof mascara and curl nicely the eyelashes. If you want to wear strong colors, we recommend doing it by making an optical illusion wearing the correct color lipstick. You should keep the blush and the bronzer at a minimum. While you are applying your make-up, take your glasses on and off, to see how you’re makeup matches with them. We hope you find these make-up ideas useful!

  1. Ooooh lovely! Any idea what the brand/style of the glasses the 2nd and 3rd models are wearing? I really like that slightly bigger glasses are back in style now. They really showcase the eyes!

  2. the looks are great but since I couldn’t see without my glasses to put makeup on what should you do? Too much work to put in contacts to do the look and then take them out and wear glasses?? Still pretty looks.

    • I usually use a hand-held mirror (like in a compact) close to my face if I really need to see the details when I’m not wearing my contacts. Once you get the hang of what you’re doing, you might not even need to see that well to get it right and just do a spot check at the end.

    • Buy a little round makeup mirror that magnifies and stick it on ur bathroom mirror at a good height for you.

      You will see great without glasses.

  3. Yeah, that’s my problem too. Yesterday, I just stood really close to the side mirror in the bathroom. I know it’s not much of an answer, but that’s really all you can do.
