Stick to less makeup – If you are using eyeshadow, go for soft neutral eyeshades. If you are natural shades, it will enable your eyes to stand out more behind the glasses. However if you are using dark shades on the eyes it can make the eyes look smaller. If possible invest in some good quality cream based eyeshadows with a bit of shimmer in it. They are perfect for makeup for eyeglass wearers.
Go for bold lip color – As you would be using neutral shades on your eyes, give your lips a bold shade. This will balance the makeup, and brighten the entire face. Also to make this fun and interesting, choose a lip color which matches the color of your eyeglass frame. For black frames, you can opt for cherry red lip color or bright pink. If the frame is tortoise shelled, then light plum and or Bordeaux would be great choices. Don’t go to extreme if you are not sure of it, but playing a bit with color on the lips would be worth the try!

Don’t forget eyeliner – The trick to apply eyeliner correctly is to measure the thickness of eyeliner as per with the frame. If the eyeglass frame is thick, go for thicker eyeliner. And if the frame is thin, then go for thinner line of eyeliner. Instead of pencil eyeliner, go for gel liner. The gel liner got a long staying power usually and also the pigmentation is intense, so it can be visible behind the lenses easily.
Mascara power – You can skip almost all of the eye makeup but mascara! Mascara enhances the eyes the most particularly if you wear eyeglasses. Use thickening mascara which will separate the lashes and add volume to the eyelashes. If your eyes water, then apply mascara only on the upper eyelashes. This wont smear and smudge the makeup.
Apply blush softly to add definition to the face – To add a healthy beautiful glow on your face, nothing works better than blush, be it cream or powder blush. It will enhance the cheekbones and also highlight it. Blush wont make the face look flat. Start applying the blush from the apples of the cheekbones and then go upwards using a blush brush.
