Make-Up Application When Wearing Glasses

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 251

We're not all make-up artists, but of course we want to look our best! However, it can sometimes be a bit stressful when you don't know the right tips - especially when half of your face is already covered by a pair of eyeglasses. Choosing the exact colors and looks that you want for your made-up face can be hard enough when you're not a professional, but where to even begin when wearing glasses?? Prescription eyeglasses typically magnify your eyes through the lenses - particularly if you have a high prescription. Along with the physical enlargement of your eyes through the lenses, just the sheer size of the frames compared to your face adds depth and bulk that breaks up your features and brings attention directly to the glasses. While you want your frames to stand out as a notable fashion accessory, you also want to create a nice balance. So here's a guide to help you apply the right kind, and right amount of make-up when wearing glasses.

The main thing to note when correlating your make-up needs to your favorite eyeglasses frames is that since attention is already drawn to your frames and eyes, you want to add balance back to your face. So, be sure not to go too heavy on the eye make-up. Especially due to the augmentation that prescription lenses add, you don't need your eyes battling with the frames; you simply want the whole look to blend smoothly. Don't use bright, bold colors, and stay away from heavy contouring or dark shading. Keep your eye make-up fairly neutral in colors, and soft in hues - like pastels. The only emphasis you can get away with adding to your eye make-up is to ensure you have a clean lash line - sometimes even bold.

A great balance to your already-displayed eyes [due to the exhibited frames] is incorporating your lips back into your full look! Your mouth is not blocked by anything, and it's physically in a great placement on your face to balance out the eyeglasses. Choose a color that will pop for your lips, and be sure to add gloss on top! You definitely want your lips to look full and comparable to the plastic or metal sitting right above. This should be the primary color of choice, and from this lip color you can choose a complimenting color palette for your eye make-up. Use the softest, most neutral color on the inner corner of the eyelid and move out toward the center, under the arch of your eyebrows. Then choose one of the darker colors in the palette for the crease and outer half of the eye. Blend the two carefully.

**Helpful Tip: Since our eyeglasses tend to slip down our noses from time to time. Try powdering both sides of your nose occasionally throughout the day. You'll be surprised at how nicely your glasses will stay in place!** Prescription glasses are usually a necessity, although eyeglasses frames are continuously growing in popularity. Whether you wear your glasses frames for fashion or actual vision-correction, you certainly want to look good doing it! If you generally wear make-up anyway, take some of these tips into consideration the next time you pair your favorite frames with your make-up!
