If you are a woman who wears eyeglasses, figuring out the best makeup to wear can be challenging. However, eyeglasses and makeup can complement each other when you know how to pair them properly. Use these tips to help you select makeup to wear with your already eye-catching eyeglasses.
- Challenges of Makeup with Glasses
Wearing eyeglasses and makeup harmoniously presents a few challenges. If you have oily skin, you may find that the nose pads on your glasses smudge your makeup. Also, glasses can cast a shadow, emphasizing or adding rings under your eyes. Nearsighted glasses can make your eyes look smaller, while glasses for farsighted vision can make your eyes look larger; both effects are aesthetically undesirable for many women. Glasses may magnify flaws like fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin around the eyes. For all of these reasons, many women like to enhance or improve the look of their eyes with makeup.
- Tips for Buying Makeup
When shopping for makeup, look for waterproof mascara and smudge-proof eyeliner and foundations, as well as cream-based eye shadows. Makeup that is cream-based and smudge-proof are less likely to flake onto your glasses.
- Shopping for Makeup Colors
When you’re looking for makeup to wear with your eyeglasses, it’s important to keep in mind the style of your eyeglass frames. Different types of frames are complemented by different approaches to makeup. Think of your glasses and makeup as a frame for you face. Rimless glasses allow you to use brighter eye shadow to add color and a little pop. Colored, bold, or thick frames are already dramatic, so turn to subtle, neutral colors for your eye makeup. When wearing bold frames, choose a brightly colored lipstick to help balance your face.
