Girls with glasses face a lot of make-up quandaries – if you are long-sighted, your glasses will magnify the eye area, while short-sighted ladies are likely to have smaller looking eyes behind the lens.
You also need to think about your frames – are they thick and bright or thin and neutral? How can you provide balance so your features don’t become swamped?
If you are confused about what to do when it comes to your make-up, look no further – we’ve put together some helpful tips to complement your stylish accessory.
Try a bold lip
Adding colour to your lips will bring a bit of balance to your face, as your glasses will naturally draw attention to your eyes. The thicker and more prominent your frames are, the bolder you can go with your lip colour.
Define your eyes
This is especially important for those of us who are short-sighted as the lenses will make your eyes appear smaller. Define your eyes with a liner and don’t be shy with the mascara. Eyelash curlers will help open up the eye area for a more awake look.
Invest in a good concealer
If you are long-sighted, your lenses will magnify your eye area and may highlight dark circles. For this reason, make sure you invest in a good quality concealer that reflects light.
Get your eyebrows done
Your eyebrows frame your face and when you wear glasses, this function is even more important. We recommend getting them shaped professionally either by plucking, waxing or threading.
Don’t forget the blush
Keep your complexion looking bright with a pink or coral coloured blush – this can be especially important if you find dark frames wash you out.
