In recent years, eye wear has become a chic fashion statement.
but thanks to trend-setting celebrities like Zooey Deschanel and Karlie Kloss, glasses now rank among the hippest accessories around the world.
Applying makeup can be tricky with the presence of glasses. Hence, we consulted a panel of makeup artists to gather their pro tips for putting on your face while wearing glasses.
And here’s what we learned.
Buy an excellent magnifying mirror
Glasses-wearers need a vision-improving tool since, they frequently need to remove their specs in order to apply eye makeup. According to UK makeup artist Elaine Wilkinson, “the first investment [for glasses-wearers] should be a quality magnifying mirror.”
These reflecting surfaces allow nearsighted clients, the capability to clearly see what they’re doing, even without the need of their glasses.
Don’t Forget the rules for nearsighted and farsighted glasses-wearers vary
If your glasses make your eyes look smaller than usual use shades that are shimmery shiny and a sheen satin effect. This way your eyes will steal all the attention.
Don’t forget the liner and black pencil on your lower lash line to give the perfect definition to your eyes. You can also add some highlighting effect o the inner corner of your eyes to make them pop!
If your eyes look bigger in glasses use matt eye shadows and skip the liner.
How to prevent foundation and concealer from sticking to your frames?
Finding formulas that don’t stick to your frames can be hard.
Glasses-wearers who use foundation and concealer are all too familiar with the tendency of these formulas to smear against and stick to frames. If your makeup causes your glasses to slip and slide down the bridge of your nose — an annoying and all-too-common occurrence, then you are missing out these steps in your makeup. Use a matte moisturizer on the bridge of the nose to prevent oil formation. Once your makeup is ready do not forget to use a setting spray.
Now you are all good to go!
Falsies aint your thing
While false eyelashes have a reputation for framing and widening eyes, they have the opposite effect when glasses are involved. Long, false lashes can brush up against glasses lenses. You need to ditch them ASAP.
Use a volumizing mascara to give your lashes a dramatic effect. Choose a great mascara that emphasizes volume over length. Keeping the lashes full and separated will enhance eyes without getting in the way of glasses
Balance the look with a bold lip color
Glasses draw immediate attention to your eyes. But what about the lower half of your face? A bold lip makes a serious statement whether you have glasses or not, but the pairing of glasses and a bright lip just reads impossibly hot.
Its high time that you flaunt your makeup looks with the glasses on!
