Hey glasses girl, did you know there are some simple tricks you can learn to perfect your makeup technique? Despite what you may think about the magnifying power of your specs, you’ll actually need to wear more eye makeup than you normally would sans lenses to help 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. Check out our top tips for a frame-friendly face of makeup.
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 can guarantee that all of the eye shadows 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 eye corner to open up the area. 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, causing them to look tired.
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 any harsh choppiness in the line to achieve a more natural effect. Get some perspective—the trick to making it all look right is to adjust your eyeliner depending on your style of glasses. The thicker your frames, the thicker your eyeliner should be. This will 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 collection, and use a white eyeliner, such as the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in White, along your lower inner rim to create contrast that bring the eyes front and center.
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 Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara, to your top lashes. Separate any clumps with your 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. For tricky areas like the inner, outer, and lower lashes, try a mascara with a skinny, precise brush, like the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara, to meticulously coat every lash.
Glasses emphasize your entire eye area, including your brows. Tweeze the strays below the arch and comb the hair neatly up and over. Using an eyebrow pencil that matches your hair color from the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Pencil collection and fill in sparse areas, making sure to follow the natural direction of your hair and arching at the midpoint of your eye. Brush over your brows one last time for a natural blending of the pencil and hair.
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-based concealer from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. (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 pretty pink lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-Caron, to keep your eyes the center of attention.
