Tips & Tricks: Make up For Wearing Glasses

I love love LOVE big nerdy glasses and when I posted up a photo of me wearing one, the gorgeous Sharlene from *I-Lashes asked if I could do a tutorial on how to do make up for glasses! And although this isn't really a tutorial, it's more like tips that I have for wearing make up with glasses. 

1. I don't know if any of you guys know this but I LOVE big eyebrows and I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I think that with glasses, having brows that frame your face and your glasses is really important. Sometimes the glasses take focus, especially if it is a thicker frame but if you have strong eyebrows, it helps with making everything balanced.

2. Define your eyes. When I wear glasses, I think that you lose definition of your eyes and it gets lost because your glasses take focus away. Putting a colour that is a couple of shades deeper than your own skintone in the crease and also under your lower lashes help give that definition back. I also like doing a black gel liner on my top lash line with a bit of a flick to open up the eyes. 

3. Don't put on too much mascara. I don't know whether it's just me but usually when I wear mascara, my lashes touch the glass part and it annoys the living day light out of me. So when I wear mascara, I always just put on 1 coat of mascara on the top lashes and focus more mascara on the bottom lashes. 

& voila! All these tips eventuate to the cam whoring below!

I was totally thinking of doing a video tutorial but I think I'm too shy and I don't even know how to set anything up but maybe in the future I will make one!! :)

  2. Are you glasses precription? I love them! Where did you get the frames? :D

    1. These ones are not prescription though I've been looking for one like this for AGES now! I know Ray Bans had one but they discontinued it :( I was so tempted to just take the frames and put in prescription glasses for this one! :P

  13. I love how u manage to wear the thick eyebrow look. I have been fixing my eyebrows for decades but right now one side is thicker than the other, so FRUSTRATING!!!!! Guess i'll have to go fix it at a shop hahaha

  16. I agree, whenever I wear mascara and wear my glasses they always touch the lens and it bugs me like heck. It's worse when I'm in a hurry and the mascara transfers onto my lens... Gah!
    Thanks for the tips and yeah our eyes does lose definition when we wear glasses, so I tend to wear a bit extra eyeliner/eyeshadow.
