Makeup Tips for Wearing Glasses

Eyeglasses and makeup are both ways to express your personality outwardly, but many people believe that wearing glasses makes it challenging to achieve the perfect makeup look. However, this is not true, and with a few adjustments to your makeup routine, you can create a stunning and sophisticated appearance. In this article, we will share some simple and effective makeup tips for glasses wearers.

Makeup Tips for Glasses

 5 Useful Makeup Tips for Glasses


One common misconception is that you need to apply excessive foundation. However, this can lead to glasses sliding down and leaving visible marks on the bridge of your nose. To avoid this, reduce the amount of foundation on your nose and consider using a matte setting spray instead of loose powder.


The width of your frame determines whether you need to emphasize your eyebrows. If your frame covers most of your brows, use leftover powder from your grooming brush to add color. If your frame is thin and reveals your brows, spend time shaping and grooming them.

 3.Eyeliner and eyeshadow

Opt for either flat or uplifted eyeliner, as both styles work well with glasses. Dark eyeliner paired with dark brown eyeshadow can make your eyes more attractive. Drawing cat-eye or upward eyeliner, along with under-eye pencils or pearlescent eyeshadow, can create the illusion of larger eyes.


Focus on curl rather than length. Long lashes can rub against your glasses and leave mascara streaks on the lenses. Curl your lashes before applying mascara to prevent contact with your glasses. Consider using smudge-proof or waterproof mascara to avoid mascara getting on your lenses.


Instead of powder blush, use cream blush and gently blend it onto the center of your cheeks for a flushed and natural look. Alternatively, you can try NextPair's Blush Glasses, which serve as both glasses and a unique alternative to traditional blush.
