It’s tempting to think that no one gonna notices your eye makeup when you wear glasses, but on the contrary, you should wear sufficient makeup to make your eyes stand out. So, here are the tips, which even with your glasses make you hotter. Take a peek…

Spruce the eyebrows
Glasses showcase the entire area of eyes including eyebrows. A well-groomed brow draws the attention on the eyes. With a small angle, brush tweezes the strays and fill the gaps with an eyebrow pencil preferable with a lighter shade than your hair colour arching at the midpoint of the eye.

Bold Lip Colour
A bold lip colour like red balances statement making glasses. If you carry a strong colour on your lips it will surely divert the attention to your lips instead of glasses.


Frames sometimes leave impression underneath the eyes, so using a yellow based concealer becomes a must.


Use lighter colour on lid
Neutral or lighter eye shadow color on the lid is better as it will define your eyes naturally. Save the bright colors for the lips. However, with darker or bright colours your eyes will look much heavy behind the glasses.


Imitate the glasses
For thicker frames go for a thicker eyeliner or for rimless glasses a thin eyeliner would be good.


Eye Lashes
Flossing the fringe brings life to the lashes instantly.  So, use heavy mascara on lashes. A curl by eyelash curler can bring magic to lashes.


Ditch the black eyeliner
However, eyes stand behind the glasses a non-black eyeliner would add stars to your frame.


Apply a layer of moisturizer preferably tinted moisturizer to give a polished look to your face which would appear more beautiful
