Makeup Tips to Flatter Your Glasses

If you wear glasses, applying makeup can be a bit tricky. With the right tips and techniques, though, you can find a look that works with your frames and makes your facial features stand out. In this blog post, we'll discuss why it's important to match your makeup style with your frames style, how to balance prescription strength with makeup, and some tips for contacts-wearers.

Match Your Makeup Style With Your Frames Style
The type of glasses you wear can have an impact on your overall look. For example, if you're wearing a pair of aviators or oversized cat-eye frames, a light touch of blush and natural tones can make the look work better than something bolder like red lipstick. On the other hand, if you've got slim wire-rimmed glasses or thin rectangular frames on, then bold colors may be the way to go!

Balance Prescription Strength With Makeup
If you have strong prescriptions in your glasses (such as those required for astigmatism), they may make your eyes appear unusually large or small depending on the strength of the lenses. If this is the case for you, try using eye shadow and eyeliner to create more balanced proportions by widening or narrowing the size of your eyes with makeup. For example, if you have strong lenses that make your eyes appear small then use dark tones around the edges of your eyes to give them a wider appearance. On the other hand, if you have lenses that make your eyes appear bigger than normal then use lighter shades around them to give them more definition.

What About Contacts-Wearers?
If you wear contacts, you won't need to worry about them not matching your makeup (unless you like unusual color contacts) but you will need to consider makeup eye safety with them. Here are a few tips to follow when wearing contacts: Always remove contact lenses before applying any kind of eye makeup; use only products specifically designed for contact wearers; always replace contact lenses according to their expiration date; never sleep in contact lenses; and always keep contact lens cases clean and sanitized.

Applying makeup when wearing glasses doesn’t have to be difficult! By following these simple tips and tricks—matching frame styles with makeup styles; balancing prescription strength with makeup; and keeping safety in mind when wearing contacts—you’ll be able to flatter both your face shape and glasses frame perfectly! With these tips in mind, it won't take long for everyone else to notice how great your look is either!
