Once upon a time, wearing glasses was anything but fashionable. Oh, how the times have changed, though! Nowadays, glasses make a serious fashion and beauty statement. In fact, a pretty pair of frames can add major flair to your face, drawing all eyes to you. But despite how cool glasses can look, figuring out how to do your eye makeup when you wear them can be difficult. But it turns out doing your eye makeup doesn’t really have to be so hard. Want to rock a killer eye look underneath your frames? It’s actually super-simple! Follow these five tips and you’ll be good to go.

1. Change Up Your Eyeliner Color

You probably have a whole host of black and brown eyeliners in your makeup bag. And while there is definitely a time and place to wear those shades, there’s never been a better time to step outside of your eyeliner comfort zone. Since we’re living in the midst of rainbow beauty trends, why not change it up a bit? The next time you line your eyes, try reaching for a navy, plum, or burgundy liner—all of which are universally flattering and can help to define your eyes. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Plum.

2. Play Around With Bottom Eyeliner

Never apply liner to your lower lash line? It’s time to start! Doing so is a great way to really make your eyes pop with glasses—sometimes it pays to get creative! All you have to do is lightly line your lower lash line straight across, or—if you’re feeling daring—you can draw a reverse cat eye that will add extra flair to your look. With a reverse cat eye, the wing should face the inner corner of your eye.

3. Opt For Natural Eye Shadows Hues

Natural does not equal boring. Nude color schemes are super-popular these days, so know that this is totally on trend. Wearing neutral eye shadow colors is an easy option for days when you don’t want your makeup to look too dramatic. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Nude Fishnet.

4. Don a smoky eye on special occasions.

For those days when you want to amp up your eye makeup game—let’s say you have a wedding to attend, for example—a smoky eye is the perfect way to do that. Let’s be real: Nothing looks quite as glamorous as a smoky eye. But instead of using dark gray and black shadows, consider trying an updated version of this classic look. A red smoky eye is the perfect way to take the eye makeup beneath your glasses up a notch. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Apply a dark reddish eye shadow to your upper lid from lash to crease.

Step 2: Apply the same shadow to your lower lash line using an angled brush.

Step 3: Diffuse the shadow using a smudge brush.

Step 4: Line your upper and lower lash line with a creamy matte eggplant-colored eyeliner pencil.

Step 5: Apply highlighter to your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes.

Step 6: Top things off with a coat of volumizing mascara.

5. Apply a Waterproof Volumizing Mascara

Just because your lashes are sitting behind your glasses doesn’t mean they can’t be an attention-grabber. That’s where mascara comes in! Choose a waterproof volumizing mascara formula so that you don’t have to worry about your lashes smudging beneath your set of specs. Try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Waterproof Mascara for maximum impact. Place the brush at the base of your lashes and gently sweep it up to the tip. Use the other wing to fan out your fringe. To remove your waterproof mascara at the end of the day, reach for a micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types.

And just like that you’ll have a gorgeous look to pair with any pair of specs. Here’s looking at you!
