Wearing glasses shouldn’t hold you back from trying new makeup trends and styles. But sometimes perfecting a look for the daily glasses wearer can be a little difficult. Bespectacled beauties, struggle no more! Here are six indispensable tips to help your makeup stand out behind your glasses.

Thick frames? Thicken your liner!

To achieve the desired cat eye or winged liner look you want it is best to mimic the thickness of your glasses. A line that is too thin or too thick for your glasses shape might be partially obstructed by your glasses, or simply look uneven. Luckily our Insanely Intense Tattooed Eyeliner is great for creating crisp lines at your desired thickness!

Shine on

One of the upsides to wearing glasses is that it has the ability to subtly magnify your eyes. To enhance this effect a little more, use a shimmery eye shadow and make your beautiful eyes shine through the glass.

Double the drama

A two toned liner look would also be a beautiful way to draw attention to your eyes. Draw the first line with a classic color like black or brown and then outline that line with another color. If you want to try this look, remember not to make the liner look too thick and bulky. Make each colored line about half as thick as you would a single line to combat any liner mishaps.

Shadow play

Wearing your sharpest cat eye isn’t the only way to enhance makeup behind your glasses. A neutral smokey eye is a great way to accentuate your eyes while not over-enlarging them.

Don’t forget your brows!

Without glasses your eyebrows help frame your face. Glasses draw even more attention to your brows since the frame usually starts at brow level. So if you want to stand out with your makeup you will have to primp your brows regularly so that they always look polished. Our Brow Wand is a double-sided tool that is perfect for shaping and filling in your brows.

Contour like a Pro

Wearing glasses can sometimes detract attention from your eyes so if you want people to focus on your eyes (and eye makeup) first consider where your glasses rest on your face. You will want to highlight the areas underneath the frames like your cheekbones and the tip of your nose, and contour underneath your cheekbones. Our Sculpt & Slay Contour Kit and Luxe Pro Contour brush are the perfect pair to create a flawless contour.
