How to Wear Makeup with Glasses, Smart Cover Style!

If you happen to be among the 65% of the population who wears corrective lenses, then we’ve got some tips for looking fabulous when you wear makeup with glasses. Contact lenses are great, but they’re not for everyone. And even if you do have contacts, some days you might just feel like wearing your glasses for a change. Here are five surefire ways to look gorgeous when you wear makeup with glasses.

Apply mascara to your top lashes but skip the bottom lashes. According to beauty writer Augusta Falletta, “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.”

You may think you can skimp on the under-eye concealer when you have your glasses on, but actually the opposite is true! As Cosmo‘s Brooke Shunatona advises, “The lenses can actually magnify the circles and make them more obvious.” Try the Smart Cover Stick to hide veins and dark shadows under your eyes. It takes seconds to apply, rolling on just like lipstick.

Look Amazing When You Wear Makeup with Glasses!

Eye shadow can be a little too overwhelming when you wear glasses, so instead accentuate your eyes with eyeliner.

Go for a bold lip, like matte red or a deep, rich burgundy. You want your eye makeup to be a little bit more understated when you’re wearing glasses, but don’t be afraid to make your lips stand out!

Keeping your blemishes and other skin imperfections completely covered is key when you wear makeup with glasses. You want your stylish look—not your skin flaws—to capture everyone’s attention. Smart Cover Camouflage Crème will hide skin concerns, including the red dents on your nose that your glasses can sometimes cause. Keep your face shine-free with the Compact Finishing Powder and rock those specs!
