8 Mistakes That Can Be Made When Wearing Glasses!

So your nailing the "geek chic" look with wearing glasses, BUT how does your make-up look? To help you navagate this difficult terrain i would like to share with you 8 mistakes that most people are making!

1.Dark shadows: Save the smokey eye makeup for when you’re wearing contacts, because too much dark eyeshadow underneath glasses can make your eyes look way too dark. Instead, go for a light, highlighting shadow colour on your lid. For a little bit of extra drama and dimension, use a medium shade colour in your crease and blend well.

2.Thin with thick: Thick frames call for thick eyeliner, just as thin frames call for thin eyeliner. Don’t mix the two, which can under or over-exaggerate your eyes in a bad way.


3.Liner that matches your frames: Matching your Eye liner to your frames can make your eyes blend in, not stand out. Try to choose a liner that’s at least a shade or two lighter than your frames (unless of course your glasses are clear or cream colored). With black frames, use a grey, brown or navy liner, and with brown frames use a taupe or bronze liner. Blend the eyeliner with a cotton swab to give a less harsh look.

4.Not curling your lashes:  Curl your lashes at the root, mid-length and tip before you begin applying mascara so that your eyes look extra wide.

5.Mascara on your bottom lashes: In general, mascara on your bottom lashes can be a little bit tricky, but especially when you’re wearing glasses, skip this. The dark lashes on the bottom plus your frames can cast a shadow on an already dark part of your face, making you look tired.


6.Skipping your skin: Yes, the emphasis is typically on your eyes when you’re wearing glasses, but that’s no reason to skip the rest of your face! Smooth out your skin  with concealer and a lightweight foundation so that your eyes can really have the spotlight without any red spots.

7.Anything besides yellow concealer: Under eye circles can create the most havoc when you’re also wearing glasses, meaning ...now’s not the time to be using the wrong concealer. Opt for a yellow shade to really combat any dark or red discoloration happening.

8.Forgetting your brows: Sometimes we focus so much on what’s behind the frames that we forget to look up! Remember to brush through and tweeze your eyebrows, which are framing your eyes!
