5 Beauty Tips for Glasses Wearers

I feel like I’m becoming an old lady as I now have to wear glasses – I’m truly an adult now! As a result, my make-up look has evolved to work with my frames and I wanted to put together some beauty tips for glasses wearers using some of my favourite products.




1. Don’t Forget to Curl
I always make sure I curl my lashes if I’m going to be wearing my glasses. My lashes are short and straight, so curling them is a must to open up my eyes and curl my eyelashes eyes away from my lenses. By their very nature, glasses draw attention to your eyes so I find it so important to make them look as awake as possible.

2. Line up
Eyeliner is another must when wearing glasses and contact lenses. I prefer a brown shade at the moment and I am obsessed with my Charlotte Tilbury Rock n Kohl eyeliner, accompanied by lashings of her Full Fat Lashes mascara. Both give me sexy and glamorous eyes with minimum effort, which look great behind my thick retro frames.

3. Cream is Queen
I tend to stay in my comfort zone when it comes to eyeshadow anyway and I always keep my eyeshadow neutral when I’m wearing my glasses. I also stick to cream eyeshadows so I don’t need to worry about fall out – especially if you are a contact lenses wearer! My current favourite is this Rimmel shadow stick, which is perfect for scribbling on my eyelids in the morning when I’m too sleepy and lazy to bother with a palette!

4. Frame your frames
You may be wearing frames, but don’t forget to frame them – using your brows. Brows are so important when wearing glasses and I have recently been using the Brow Wow pencil from Barry M. It was a bargain at just £3.99, has a spoolie and it is the perfect shade to define my brows.

5. Go Bold
When I’m wearing my retro glasses, I love my makeup to reflect the vintage look of my frames, so I can’t resist pairing my neutral eyes with a bold lip. It draws attention away from your glasses if you aren’t so confident about wearing frames and I always feel so much more put together if I am wearing a nice lipstick. I am completely obsessed with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, in particular the deep red Monte Carlo, and I have recently discovered they are stocked on Asos – which means soon I will probably have every shade!
