10 beauty tips for women who wear glasses

If you wear glasses, you know that applying makeup can be a complicated step in your morning routine. Here are 10 beauty tips to try.

Now more than ever, it is extremely easy to find beautiful eyeglass frames! Indeed, many stores focus solely on selling eyeglasses. It is, of course, possible to also buy them online. It is therefore not surprising that these have become a fashion accessory. The next time you’re getting ready and you reach for your contact lenses, don’t do it! Instead, wear your trendy glasses and try these beauty tips to enhance your look. After all, just because you wear glasses it doesn’t mean you have to give up the pleasure of putting on makeup!

1 Choose the right mascara

Opt for a mascara with a volumizing formula that will give you thicker lashes, not longer ones. Indeed, you don’t want your eyelashes to constantly stick to your lenses.

2 Apply foundation

Apply a small amount of foundation on your nose to avoid your glasses from slipping. You can add some translucent powder to make this beauty tips even more effective.

4 Groom your eyebrows

Yes, your glasses frame your eyes but your eyebrows frame your glasses so it is vital to groom and shape them properly. Take out your eyebrow pencil, your powder or any other product you use and make sure to keep them looking on fleek so you always look great.

5 Don’t be scared to be bold!

Grab your favourite lipstick, the one that makes you feel the most confident and compliments your colouring. Never be scared to wear lipstick when you are wearing your glasses.

This simple beauty tip will attract attention and will make your eyes look bigger. This is a trick to remember, especially if eyeliner is one of your favourite beauty product.

7 Match your glasses with your makeup

If your eyeglass frame is colourful, why not coordinate it with your makeup or clothes? This will highlight your glasses as well as your face.

8 Use a tinted moisturizer to help hide the annoying red marks glasses often leave on your nose

Apply a beauty balm all over your face but apply a bit more on certain areas like around your nose. This way, if you take off your glasses during the day, you won’t have those annoying small red marks glasses tend to leave on your nose.

9 Dab the excess foundation

This is particularly important to do on your nose and on your cheeks since this is where your glasses sit.

10 Prevent your mascara from flaking on your lenses with a creamy, waterproof formula

There are two reasons why your mascara could flake on your eyeglasses:

  1. It is old. You should replace your mascara every three months.
  2. It isn’t a creamy formula and there are no hydrating ingredients.


With these beauty tips, you should be able to apply your favourite makeup products all while highlighting your beautiful features without switching your glasses to contact lenses, which tend to dry your eyes out.
