Top Makeup Tips For Glasses Wearers

How to Rock Eye Makeup With Your Glasses

If you're a glasses wearer, you know the struggle of finding the perfect makeup look that complements your frames. While glasses can be a stylish accessory, they can also pose a challenge when it comes to applying makeup. But don't worry – with a little bit of know-how and some practice, you can confidently rock any makeup look with your glasses.

While wearing glasses can sometimes feel like a hindrance when it comes to eye makeup, these tips will show you how to confidently and flawlessly incorporate your glasses into your makeup routine, specifically when it comes to eye makeup for glasses wearers.

How to do your makeup when you wear glasses?

If you wear glasses on a daily basis, you may have noticed that certain makeup techniques don't work as well with your specs. For example, thick eyebrows or bold eyeliner can be obscured by the frames and make them harder to see. But don't let your glasses hold you back from experimenting with your makeup! Here are some tips for rocking eye makeup with your glasses, whether you wear reading glasses, blue light glasses or prescription glasses:

Tip 1: Go with the lighter touch

When it comes to your eyebrows, using light, natural shades will allow your glasses to sit comfortably on your face without any excess weight. This is especially important if you wear reading glasses as the added weight of thicker eyebrows can cause your glasses to slide down your nose. For a natural, polished look, use a brow pencil or powder to fill in any sparse areas and then brush through your eyebrows with a spoolie brush to blend and shape them.

Tip 2: Less is more - thin out the lines

For your eyeliner, go for thin, precise lines instead of thick, bold ones. This will help to define your eyes without being too overpowering or distracting. If you have trouble applying eyeliner with your glasses on, try using a thin brush or a liquid liner with a fine tip. This will give you more control and allow you to create precise lines.

Tip 3: Neutral shades is what does the trick

When it comes to eyeshadow, avoid dark shades that may blend in with the frames of your glasses. Instead, opt for light, shimmery shades that will catch the light and draw attention to your eyes. Neutral shades like beige, taupe, and champagne are always a safe bet, but don't be afraid to experiment with pops of color like rose gold or soft pastels. Just make sure to blend your eyeshadow well to avoid any harsh lines or unevenness.

Tip 4: Use a magnification mirror

If you wear reading glasses, consider using a magnification mirror to apply your makeup. This will help you see up close and apply your makeup more precisely. You can also invest in a pair of reading glasses specifically for makeup application, which can be helpful if you have trouble seeing small details.

If you're looking for the perfect reading glasses to complement your makeup routine, you have plenty of options to choose from. The Luxreaders Adams Black is a top pick, featuring a square frame with a slightly interrupted eyebrow line.

By following these simple tips, you can rock your eye makeup with confidence – even when wearing glasses!

How can I wear my glasses without messing up my makeup?

One of the biggest challenges of wearing glasses is ensuring that your makeup stays in place throughout the day, especially when it comes to makeup for glasses wearers. Below we offer a few tips for keeping your makeup looking fresh and flawless...

Use a primer before applying your foundation

This will help to keep your makeup in place and prevent it from smudging or smearing onto your glasses. Use powder to set your makeup. This will help it stay put and stop it from transferring onto the lenses.

Set your makeup with a setting spray or powder

This will help to lock in your makeup and prevent it from transferring onto your glasses. Avoid using greasy or oily products, as these can cause your makeup to slide off your face and onto your glasses. Instead, opt for hydrating, oil-free products that won't cause any smudging.

Bring your glasses with you when shopping for makeup

This will help you choose the right shades and textures that won't be obscured by your frames.

It's exactly the style offered by Luxreaders Miller Gold. Designed in Denmark and made of lightweight stainless steel, these glasses feature laser-cut one-piece fronts, eliminating unsightly welds and joints. The metal range has flexible temples that can be adjusted to fit comfortably around the head, and the temple tips are made of silicone to keep the glasses in place.

As the cherry on the top, the unassuming frames of Miller Gold will accentuate your makeup on whole new level.

What kind of makeup looks good with glasses?

While there are no hard and fast rules for what kind of makeup looks good with glasses, there are a few general guidelines you can follow to enhance your features and complement your frames:

Go for a bold lip color to balance out the frames of your glasses. A bright red or fuchsia lipstick can really make a statement and draw attention to your mouth.

Experiment with different eyeshadow shades and techniques to find what works best for you when it comes to wearing eye makeup with glasses. Some people find that smoky eyes look great with glasses, while others prefer a more natural, subtle look.
