In one of my recent social media posts, a past client expressed that she found it difficult to know what sort of makeup to wear with her glasses, and I thought, what a great topic for a blog post!
Read on to find out my top tips for wearing makeup with glasses...
Make sure your foundation around the nose area isn't 'cakey' as it will transfer onto your glasses and create little indents in your foundation. Just a light layer of foundation over the area is best. If you need a lot of coverage in that area, use a high-coverage foundation, as the high pigment means you only need a small amount to cover any discolouration. Make sure it's long-lasting, as it is less likely to transfer. If you have oily skin, a matte foundation will help control the oil. Make sure to thoroughly set the entire area with powder to ensure long-lasting, shine-free coverage.
If your glasses are longsighted, they'll magnify the eye area which will make your eyes look bigger as well as make your makeup much more noticeable. Here are a few tips:
If your glasses are shortsighted, they'll make your eyes look smaller, so it's important to use a few simple makeup tricks to enhance your eyes and make them look bigger. Here are a few tips:
Coloured vs. Neutral Glasses Frames
Finally, I just wanted to mention a few tips for coloured frames and neutral frames.
If your frames are neutral (black, charcoal, grey, navy, brown, taupe, white, or even clear) you can wear a bolder, more colourful eye look. Experiment with colours that enhance and complement your eye colour to make your eyes stand out!
On the other hand, if your glasses are in one of your pop colours, it may be difficult for you to pull off a coloured eyeshadow look without appearing overdone. Go a little simpler with the eyes and wear a bold lip! Don't be afraid of a colourful lip with coloured glasses. As long as they're both in your colour code, they'll harmonise. Of course, this gives quite a dramatic effect, and may not be comfortable for those of you with a gentler, more reserved personality, so don't do it unless you're comfortable.
I hope you learned something from these tips! If you have any questions about this topic (or anything else for that matter!) just pop them below and I'd be more than happy to answer.
