Thanks to the fashion world, glasses have transformed their sole purpose of correcting vision to also being super stylish! We think that sometimes a great pair of glasses can be your best accessory and that girls should use their fashionable frames to compliment their makeup.
Mascara. It is especially important to do 2 things that the non-glasses wearers can get away with more easily. First, comb out those clumps! These can actually be magnified by the lenses. Secondly, curl those lashes! If you don’t they may rub against the lenses and smear mascara on them.
Concealer. The frames of glasses tend to cause shadows around the eye area, so be sure to brighten up with concealer. Especially if you know that you already have dark circles or puffy eyes. These will be easier to see and even appear darker behind lenses.
Cheeks. Put that blush on baby! We think that blush looks amazing on girls with glasses because it really brightens up the face around the shadows of the lenses. Don’t be afraid to wear a bold blush, even with thick-rimmed glasses – it is so stylish!
Lips. We love glasses with bright, bold lips. We think that is looks so modern and chic!
Eyeliner. For the eyeliner to really stand out behind the lenses and frames of glasses, you can make the eyeliner darker and thicker. It may be a “bold” daytime look for someone without glasses, but with them, it really draws attention past the frames to your eyes. Also, we LOVE cat eyeliner behind glasses, it is a total MUST!
Eyeshadow. Try to keep your shadows on the warm side. Corals, peaches etc. This will look crisp and reflect the light behind your lenses. Some cooler shades can look dull and make you look more tired.

I use a magnifying mirror since I can’t wear my glasses while I apply makeup to my eyes
Great tip, thanks Emma!
