Gals with glasses, did you know there are some simple tricks you can learn to perfect your makeup technique? Wearing glasses can impact your beauty look, but it doesn’t have to derail it! Despite what you may think about the magnifying power of your specs, you’ll actually need to wear more eye makeup to make your eyes pop. That being said, you still want your look to be super-clean and fresh, since glasses draw attention to your eyes. Keep clicking to check out our top tips for a frame-friendly makeup look.
When it comes to eye shadow, the lighter and more neutral the color you put on your lid, the better. You can’t go wrong with using a neutral palette packed with nude shades, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude. This will guarantee that all of the eye shadows you dip your brush into will work together seamlessly. Blend slightly darker, warm hues into and above your crease and dab a shimmery illuminator on your brow bone and inner corner to open up your eyes. Save bright and cool colors for your lips or days when you pop in contact lenses—these shades can magnify dark undertones around the eyes, giving you a tired look we know you don’t want!
Next, line your upper lash line with a pencil or liquid eyeliner, making sure to fill in those tiny spaces in between your lashes. Try to choose a color that is at least a shade or two lighter than the frames of your glasses so that the eyeliner doesn’t get lost in their shape. Use a cotton swab to smooth out the line and achieve a more natural effect.
The trick to really making it all look right is to adjust your eyeliner depending on the style of your glasses. The thicker your frames, the thicker your eyeliner can be. Coordinating the thickness of your liner with that of your glasses will help ensure your specs don’t overpower your eyes. Keep dark makeup on top, sticking with a black or brown from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner line, and use a nude or white eyeliner, such as the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Nude, on your waterline to brighten up your eyes.
Fluffing up the appearance of your fringe is an instant way to bring your eyes to life. Curl and comb lashes for optimal definition before applying mascara, such as the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara, to your upper lashes. Separate any clumps with a lash comb before your mascara dries. If you can’t resist lower lash mascara, apply a very light layer to only the root, as sweeping through to the tips may give them a spidery look.
Glasses emphasize your entire eye area, including your brows. Tweeze the strays below the arch and comb the hair neatly up and over. Using the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel in a shade that matches your brow color, fill in sparse areas, define your shape, and blend out for natural-looking arches.
Since all eyes will surely be on your eyes, keep the rest of your face simple. Frames can sometimes create the appearance of shadows underneath your eyes, so start with a yellow concealer like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayon in Yellow—just remember that a little goes a long way! Then, even out your complexion with a foundation that has a radiant finish and set it with a coordinating face powder to help prevent your makeup from smearing underneath your glasses. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Powder. Finally, complete your makeup look with a subtle pink lipstick, like the L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Empower, that will ensure your eyes remain the center of attention.
Don’t forget to snap a selfie when you finish—we know you look amazing!
