Make-up Routines For Girls With Glasses

It can be tricky for girls who wear glasses to find the perfect makeup routine. Eye makeup is the cornerstone of many makeup looks, but glasses affect the shape of the eyes and the face. Girls who proudly don glasses need makeup regimens tailored to their needs.

Foundation
Glasses wearers should start their makeup routine with a solid base. Apply concealer to the dark circles under the eyes, as glasses can magnify unwanted pigmentation. Follow the concealer with foundation, and set the makeup with powder. Powder is important, as glasses can smudge makeup that hasn’t been properly set. For a sun kissed look, use MineTan Tan Contour Enhancer. It leaves skin looking bronzed and beautiful. Add a dash of blush to the apples of the cheek to complete the healthy glow.

Lighter Frames
Girls who wear lighter frames should accentuate the brows. Use a brow pencil to define the arch and the top of the brow. Then apply a neutral coloured eyeshadow across the lid and a slightly darker neutral hue along the crease. Blend the two colours. Draw a fine line across the lid in brown or black eyeliner, and add mascara to the upper and lower lashes to open the eyes.

Coloured Frames
Girls who wear coloured frames should also start by defining the brows. Use a neutral eyeshadow as a base, and apply a brighter colour to the crease. Coloured glasses demand bolder eyeshadow colours. Try a rich espresso colour for a neutral but still vibrant look. Follow the eyeshadow with eyeliner, which should be applied evenly and then smudged to create a smoky effect. Finish the eye by adding a few coats of black mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

Heavy Frames
If a heavier frame such as tortoise shell or black is your frame of choice, it is best to keep the eye makeup subtle. Instead of doing a bold, smoky eye, draw attention to the lips with a bright pop of lip colour. Choose a fun hue, like a summery coral. Extend the colour to the cheeks by choosing a blush with a hint of shimmer. Then keep the eye makeup simple by using neutral hues and a touch of brown mascara.
