Steps On How To Apply Eye Makeup For Eyeglasses

1. The first thing you will need to do is to be aware that there are some eyeglasses that create an optical illusion, making your eyes seem larger or smaller than they really are. By determining what size your eyes appear to be, you will be able to adjust your eye makeup accordingly.

According to makeup professionals, it is best to step outside and look at your reflection in a clear mirror. When you step outside, you will be able to view your reflection in natural light and will have a better, truer reflection. 

2. The second step is to determine the style of your eyeglasses. If your eyeglasses are rimless, you can consider adding plenty of dramatic color to your eye makeup in order to bring out your eyes. But if your eyeglasses have a brightly colored frame, it is best to use eye shadow colors that are muted or subdues.

3. The third procedure you will need to do is to apply concealer makeup to any under-eye circles, as these will be more noticeable while you are wearing your eyeglasses.

4. After that, it is very important to apply a light-colored eye shadow makeup if your eye appears small, while you have to apply dark eye shadow colors to your eyelids if your eyes appear larger in eyeglasses. If you have smaller eyes when wearing your eyeglasses, you will need to use plenty of makeup highlighter at the brow bone, as well.

5. The next step you will need to do is to apply eye liner on the top of your eyelashes. This step is very important to make your eyes look larger. But if you want your eyes to look smaller, you can skip the eye liner or you can simply apply a bit to your top eyelids and not on the lower lids. Always keep in mind that you have to apply a thin line by your eyelashes if your eyes appear smaller.

6. Then, you will need to apply two coats of mascara if your eyes appear smaller behind your eyeglasses. But if you eye appear too large while wearing your eyeglasses, it is advisable to skip the mascara step, as this will just cause your eyes to appear even greater in size.

Remember that you have to choose volumnizing mascara and not those that will increase the length of your eyelashes.

7. And lastly, you will need to apply a bit of color to your eyebrows using an eyebrow pencil. Then brush your eyebrows into the desire shape using an upward sweeping motion.

Additional Tips And Warnings On How To Apply Eye Makeup For Eyeglasses

  • Always keep in mind that using a white eye liner pencil can make your eyes appear larger. So you have to apply the white eye liner to both top and lower lashes.
  • If you want to make your small eye appear larger, it is very important to use one shimmery, light eye shadow makeup and sweep that one color from your eyelid to your brow bone.
  • Always remember that you should not use any lengthening mascara as these can only increase your eyelash length to the point that they will touch your eyeglasses.
  • And lastly, if you have brightly colored eyeglass frames, balance the color using a bright lipstick.
