Makeup for glasses

If you beautifully emphasize your eyelids with eyeshadow and carefully apply mascara, you add expressiveness and mystery to your gaze. However, makeup under glasses requires a special technique. The eyes of a nearsighted person, hidden behind prescription lenses, especially when untouched by makeup, may appear smaller than they actually are. On the contrary, plus lenses enlarge the eyes but also highlight fine lines and shadows, making the farsighted gaze seem sad. Fortunately, the right makeup can work wonders.

Before applying eye makeup, use a light concealer to cover skin imperfections on the lower eyelid, especially if you tend to have bluish under-eye circles. Apply a bit of concealer in the inner corners of the eyes and on the nose, where the frames leave marks.

Now, onto the makeup:

Bold Colors for Nearsightedness: Try to visually enlarge your eyes with bold makeup and vibrant eyeshadow colors. It's best to use 2 colors (light and dark) or 2 shades of the same color.

Apply the light shade on the upper eyelid up to the brow line and in the inner corner of the eye. Use the darker shade to draw a diagonal line on the upper eyelid, starting from 3/4 of its length towards the outer corner. Don't draw a line on the lower eyelid. Instead, you can draw it on the upper lid, right by the lashes, from the middle of the eye to the outer corner. It should be extremely subtle, preferably done with eyeshadow and a brush, gently blending it. Use creamy eyeliner to draw a line along the inner edge of the lower eyelid. This visually opens up the eye and adds freshness to the gaze. Apply mascara twice to make the eyes more expressive.

Pastel Shades for Farsightedness: Your task is to visually reduce the size of your eyes and conceal imperfections around them. The easiest way to achieve this is with light pastel shades, or you can use two tones of the same color. Cover the upper eyelid with the light shade up to its crease and emphasize the outer corner of the eye with the darker shade, but just a touch. Use an eyeliner pencil to draw a line on the upper eyelid right by the lashes. You can also underline the lower eyelid with eyeliner, and even connect both lines at the outer corner of the eye. Choose matte eyeshadows and avoid shimmery or pearly ones, as they accentuate the eyelids. Apply black or brown mascara meticulously, as clumped lashes will be very visible.

If you sometimes wear contact lenses: Apply eye makeup after putting on your lenses, preferably with gel or cream eyeshadows - products with such consistency don't crumble and won't irritate the eyes. Also, use hypoallergenic mascara.

3 Special Tips:

The eyeshadow colors should not create a significant contrast with the color of the frames.

Harmonize the eyeshadow color with your iris. For brown eyes, shades of olive and brown work well; for blue eyes - greens; for green eyes - turquoise, sea greens, and currently fashionable pinks.

Remember to groom your eyebrows. Unkempt, unruly brows can spoil even the most carefully crafted makeup.

Match the Frames to Your Face Shape: Glasses can perfectly emphasize your beauty if their shape harmonizes with the oval of your face.

Moreover, they can slightly improve it. And they're super trendy! Round glasses will slim the face and gain sharpness with "cat-eye" frames - slightly elongated and with slightly lifted sides. Rectangular frames will benefit from rounded and narrow rectangles.

This geometric play diverts attention from its angular shape. Triangular will gain prettier proportions with thin wire frames in an ellipse shape. Oval will look good in any frames. You can even afford some extravagance. Hexagonal will benefit from trapezoid-shaped frames, as they will soften the strong outline of the jaw. Pear-shaped will look beautiful in frames with a strong upper edge, which will visually widen the forehead.

Makeup for Colored Contact Lenses: The first step is to choose the color of the lenses that suits your style and preferences. Lenses are available in various colors, from subtle shades that only enhance the natural eye color to bolder colors that completely change your look. The choice depends on your taste and the occasion for which you plan to wear the lenses. Once the lens color is chosen, you can adjust your makeup to perfectly complement them.

Choose eyeshadows that complement the color of the lenses and create a harmonious effect. For example, if you have blue lenses, shades of blue or purple eyeshadows would be an ideal choice. For green lenses, green and brown eyeshadows will work well. Try to avoid a sharp, contrasting difference between the lens color and the eyeshadows.

Eyeliner can help define the eyes. Black or brown eyeliners are a good choice, but you can also experiment with eyeliner in a color that matches the lenses, creating a cohesive effect.

Mascara is a key element of eye makeup. It adds volume and length to lashes. If you have dark lenses, black mascara is ideal. For lenses in light colors, brown mascara can create a more delicate effect.

Contact lenses can sometimes make the eyes appear smaller. Therefore, focus on brightening the inner corner of the eye, which will make the eyes appear larger and more open. The lipstick color can also affect the final effect of eye makeup. Avoid color conflicts and choose shades that match both the lens color and your skin tone.

Makeup for colored contact lenses is a fun way to experiment with different styles and effects. There is no one "correct" answer because much depends on your preferences and the occasion. Remember that makeup is a tool to enhance natural beauty, so play with color and style to create a unique look that suits your character and personality.
