10 Makeup Tips for Eyeglass Wearers

Frame color is cosmetic

Choose a classic or trendy hue that flatters your frame. Black, tortoiseshell, dark navy, burgundy, or charcoal define and enhance aging eyes like instant eyeliner.


Your glasses exaggerate crepey lids, circles, puffiness, and sloppy or excessive makeup, making tiny eyes seem larger.


Close-up, swell is visible. Your eyes appear smaller behind glasses, no matter how bright and huge they are. Deep-set or hooded eyes are double problems. Sunken, nearly invisible.

Multifocal or progressive lenses?

Your lenses include two or three prescriptions. Convenient, but your eye makeup must be multitalented. Choose a neutral contoured eye instead of a dark smokey eye.

More eye makeup with larger frames?

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

Smaller frames lighten eye makeup

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

Makeup for whole day

If your skin is oily or hot-flash sweaty, try an oil-absorbing foundation and powder the bridge of your nose.

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.

Black mascara thickens and volumizes

Avoid lashes hitting eyeglasses! One fingertip on the brow bone lifts the lid with the other hand. This lets you reach the top lash roots.

Frame your frames with brows

Brush brows up and clip additional length, then tweeze tail hairs that curve downward and stubble or random hairs seen in lenses.
