Combination of Makeup and Glasses

November 02, 2019

When applying Makeup and Glasses as a wearer, you'll want to invest in a good magnifying. Remember that combination of Makeup and Glasses rules apply for nearsighted and farsighted. To prevent foundation and concealer from sticking to your frames, be strategic about the application and be sure to use a setting spray to keep the Makeup and Glasses.

BALANCE THE LOOK WITH A BOLD

In recent years, eyeglasses have come into their own as a chic fashion statement. The four-eyed among us may have painful memories of junior-high teasing and "Harry Potter"-Esque broken frames. Still, thanks to trendsetting celebs like Zooey Deschanel and Karlie Kloss, Makeup and Glasses now rank among the hippest accessories around.

Of course, applying Makeup and Glasses can be tricky when impaired vision and bold specs enter the equation. INSIDER consulted a panel of Makeup and Glasses artists to gather their top tips for putting on your face while wearing glasses.

HERE'S WHAT WE LEARNED.

SHELL OUT FOR AN EXCELLENT MAGNIFYING MIRROR

A Good Mirror Makes All The Difference. Because Glasses-wearers Frequently Need To Remove Their Specs To Apply Eye Makeup And Glasses, They Need A Vision-improving Tool. According To UK Makeup And Glasses Artist Elaine Wilkinson, "The First Investment for Glasses- Wearers should Be A Quality Magnifying Mirror."

These Reflecting Surfaces Allow Nearsighted Clients. The Ability To See What They're Doing, Even Without The Help Of Their Glasses. Brands Like Hollywood Mirrors, Miusco, And Chende Craft Mirrors That Are Pricey, But If You're Wearing Eye Makeup And Glasses Daily, Their Technical Precision And Excellent Lighting Make Them Well Worth The Dough.

Remember That Different Makeup, And Glasses Rules Apply For Nearsighted And Farsighted Glasses Wearers. If you're wearing glasses due to nearsightedness, your lens prescription can have a shrinking effect on your eyes. Luckily, some strategic Makeup and Glasses choices can counteract this illusion.

 

If you're wearing glasses that make your eyes appear smaller, I like to use eye shadows with a sheen. A satin or shimmer finish will help draw attention to the eyes," recommends NYC-based Makeup and Glasses artist Margins Dennis.

 

For this purpose, Dennis especially likes the shimmery shadows from Natasha Danone and By Terry. In terms of eyeliner, Dennis suggests a defined liquid or gel liner on the lash line and a highlighting liner in the waterline.

On the flip side, folks who wear glasses for farsightedness often find their eyes magnified by their lenses, pulling focus from the rest of the face. To downplay the eyes, Dennis recommends using matte eye shadows. She also recommends skipping the liquid or gel liner, instead of "smudging eye shadow around the eyes in place of the liner" for a more low-key look.

TO PREVENT FOUNDATION AND CONCEALER FROM STICKING TO YOUR FRAMES

Finding formulas that don't stick to your frames can be tough. Glasses-wearers who use facial cosmetics like foundation and concealer are all too familiar with the tendency of these formulas to smear against and stick to frames.

 

If your Makeup and Glasses cause to slip and slide down the bridge of your nose, an annoying and all too common occurrence NYC Makeup and Glasses artist Kasey Adam Swickard has a simple solution.

Because Makeup and Glasses can become greasy and glasses can slide down the nose, I like to use a matte moisturizer on the bridge of the nose to prevent oil formation," Spickard tells INSIDER, calling out Bioderma Sebium Mat Control as a particularly effective example.

Once you've finished your face, Spickard recommends a setting spray to preserve the look and keep your glasses in place. "Urban Decay All Night Long-Lasting Makeup and Glasses Setting Spray is great and will prevent that dreaded Makeup and Glasses transfer onto your glasses!"

SKIP THE FALSIES AND FIND YOURSELF A GREAT VOLUMIZING MASCARA

While false eyelashes have a reputation for framing and widening eyes, they have the opposite effect when glasses are involved. "Long, false lashes can brush up against glasses lenses," explains Ami Mellon, Global Corporate Educator for Osmosis Color Mineral Cosmetics. "This can cause streaking on the insides of the lens and can also irritate the eyes."

For this reason, Mallon advises ditching the falsies for a mascara that will show off your natural lashes in the best possible way. "Choose a great mascara that emphasizes volume over length. Keeping the lashes full and separated will enhance eyes without getting in the way of glasses."

Glasses draw immediate focus to your eye area, so if you're interested in a balanced Makeup and Glasses motif, you'll want to add a pop of color to your face's lower half. The easiest way to do that? Swipe on a bright and concentrated lip color.

"A bold lip makes a serious statement whether you have glasses or not, but the pairing of glasses and a bright lip just read impossibly chic," I love eye Makeup and Glasses, so when I got glasses a few years ago I was pretty bummed.

I felt like a lot of my favorite eye looks would now be rendered useless. However, it turns out there are plenty of it's just about readjusting a few of your Makeup and Glasses basics to incorporate your frames, as opposed to trying to work around them or ignoring them altogether.
