Want to look SPECtacular?
Cute glasses can totally make an outfit but then it's all about how should you do your makeup? Another challenge is how do you get the makeup on when you're blind without your glasses on? Also, when doing your makeup, make sure to incorporate your frames into the equation, don't ignore them all together. It's like painting your living room without paying attention to the color of the furniture. It just doesn't make sense. With a few clever tricks you can ensure your makeup and glasses perfectly complement one another.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Find a nice, strong magnifying mirror to act as your glasses so you don't have the "I'm blind" problem while applying your makeup.

Plain and simple, don't do it. If you choose to match your makeup to your glasses, you will look dated and it will take away from your natural features. Opt for nude, sheer tones instead.

Bring the Darkness to Light
No, we don't mean black but a deep navy or burgundy liner is warmer and makes everyone look good, no matter your skin tone or hair color. These colors give enough power and definition, while also brightening up your eyes and giving you an on-trend look. Gel liners are the best way to make your eyes pop under glasses.

Get Rid of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Yes, he may be cute around Christmas time but not as a huge mark and dent your glasses often leave behind. Use a tinted moisturizer and make sure to give the bridge of your nose a little extra primer. That way if you take your glasses off at any point during the day or night, you won't have those annoying marks.

How annoying is it when you wear glasses and your lashes just keep hitting the lenses? First you're going to want to pick up an eyelash curler if you don't already have one. Focus on the roots of your lashes when curling that way you don't have the issue of your lashes grazing the glass of your lenses as you blink. Apply one coat of mascara from root to tip, like you would every day. With the second coat you want to focus your attention on the root to create a strong base without having heavy tips. Use a waterproof formula on the tips so the mascara doesn't smudge or flake against your glasses.
