Never Make These Mistakes If You Wear Glasses

December 19, 2016


Hi everyone..

Wearing glasses means that you need to approach your makeup a little differently.  I can totally understand because I also wear glasses.

Certain tricks and techniques can help make sure glasses don’t distract from your gorgeous face.

With this knowledge, your glasses will look like the accessory they are rather than a focal point that distracts from your face.

Following are the makeup mistakes to avoid if you wear glasses-


Neglecting Your Eyebrows



We may think your eyebrows aren’t as important when we wear glasses but they’re actually more important. Your eyebrows are the frame to your face and they always need attention.

Neglecting them can make them look sparser than they truly are. You don’t want your face to look like it begins at your glasses. Make sure you shape and fill in your brows and you’ll see a huge difference.


Skipping Under Eye Concealer



Under eye circles can look even more pronounced when you wear glasses. Glasses add a darkness and shadows so you need to combat that. Under eye concealer is something almost everyone needs, and especially glasses wearers.

It only takes a few seconds to apply and adds so much light to your face. Be sure you pat it on rather than rub it on for the best result.


Not Powdering Your Nose



Any shine you have on your nose or t-zone is going to stand out when you wear glasses. That’s because your nose is right under the centre of your glasses.

So you have to be more careful  to stay on guard against shine. Powdering your nose at the beginning of the day will help make it harder for shine to get through. If it does, whisk it away with a blotting cloth or another application of powder.


Too Dark Blush



It can be easy for your glasses and blush to compete with one another because they both set close to the cheekbone. You can avoid this by staying away from dark or dramatic blushes.

Lean more toward a natural blush shade. Apply lightly. You can always apply more but it’s difficult to take it off without redoing all your makeup over again.





Make sure your eyes get the dramatic impact they deserve by choosing mascara that delivers your favourite finish, whether it’s length, volume, definition or curl. Give them several good coats, making sure to catch the lashes at the inner and outer corners.

This gives your eyes the pop you’re craving. With this trick, you’ll be getting compliments galore!


Have Lifeless Lips



Lips need colour. Lips balance out all that’s going on with your glasses and eye makeup at the top of your face. The colour you choose isn’t as important as the fact that you wear something on your lips.

You may want to go a little bolder than you would if you weren’t a glasses wearer but you can still pull off the nude trend that’s so popular right now. If you’re not a lipstick kind of girl then find a gloss you love.





You need to work a little harder to call attention to your eyes because they’re behind glasses.

Don’t let them get lost in your frame. Choose eye shadow shades that have shimmer.

This helps catch the light and put the attention where it belongs, on your lovely eyes! If you do wear matte shades, make sure you incorporate some light colours to keep things on the iridescent side.



These tips can help you avoid makeup mistakes when you wear glasses. Try not to again repeat these mistakes and look gorgeous in your glasses. Do let me know any other tips you know which can help look gorgeous in glasses.
