Perfect make-up for fashionistas with glasses

There are times when wearing contact lenses is pure torture. An example? At work, where you spend nearly eight hours a day in front of a computer screen, concentrating and focusing on a single point. Otherwise you have to use eye drops every hour or choose to wear glasses. However, how should you do your make-up to get the best look while wearing glasses? Should you highlight your lips, or highlight your eyes when the glasses frame and dwarf your eyes? Don’t worry, we’ll give you the tips you need so that your make-up is always perfect, even when wearing glasses.

Rimmed glasses

If your frames are very striking or large, you have to be very meticulous. Rimmed glasses tend to dwarf our eyes. For perfect make-up, use mascara liberally, outline and fill your eyebrows, and don’t overuse eyeshadows so that such a small, defined space is not too full of color, since it already draws attention. You can use eyeliner on your eyelid, but always use a discrete stroke. If your glasses are colored, use black eyeliner. But if your frames are black or brown, you can use colored eyeliner to give a touch of personality to your look. Our must-haves:

Help for glasses that make your eyes look smaller or larger

Use beige eyeshadows to illuminate the lacrimal area and enhance your look while combatting the diminishing effect that glasses have on your eyes. Use a matte tone to give shape and expression to the eye socket. This will enhance your look. It’s important that you use mascara and that you outline and fill your eyebrows to diminish any asymmetry. Get yourself:

If your glasses make your eyes look bigger, we recommend that you use the “tightlining” technique, where you use a waterproof pencil eyeliner and color the lacrimal area to contour your eyes. If you use eyeshadow, it’s best if they are well-blended and are matte tones, in order to give depth to your look. Our recommendations are:

Painted lips

Give intensity to your lips. Experiment with dark colors, vampire-red, or bubblegum pink this spring. Emphasize matte colors while marking your eyes so that your lips take center stage. This way, the facial balance will make your make-up a success.
