10 Makeup Tips For Eyeglass Wearers

Frame color is cosmetic

Black, tortoiseshell, dark navy, burgundy, or charcoal define and enhance aging eyes like instant eyeliner.


For small eyes, glasses amplify eyes, but they also emphasize crepey lids, circles, puffiness, and sloppy or excessive makeup.


Your eyes appear smaller behind lenses, no matter how bright and huge they are. Deep-set or hooded eyes are double problems. Sunken, almost invisible.

Multifocal or progressive lenses?

Your lenses include two or three prescriptions. Convenient, but your eye makeup must be multitalented.

More eye makeup with larger frames?

Love playing with eye-makeup palettes and looks? Your gallery is extra window space. Do you only use concealer, liner, and mascara? Go huge!

Smaller frames lighten eye makeup

To hide under-eye puffiness or circles, try extremely pale 10-percent blue, rose, mauve, or lavender tinted lenses. Pastel gradient lenses highlight the eyes.

Makeup for all day

If your skin is oily or hot-flash sweaty, use an oil-absorbing foundation in places and powder your nasal bridge to protect glasses from slipping.

Eye cream and concealer

Age thins and dries eye skin. All eyeglass frames cast shadows under the eyes, and lenses can accentuate wrinkles and discolorations.

Use black volumizing, thickening mascar

Glasses require curling and a thickening or volumizing solution. Avoid lashes hitting eyeglasses! One fingertip on the brow bone lifts the lid with the other hand.

Eyebrows frame frameworks

Most frames "seat" brows. Brush brows up and clip additional length, then tweeze tail hairs that curve downward and stubble or random hairs visible in lenses.
