MAKEUP & EYE MAKEUP FOR GIRLZ WHO WEAR GLASSES :) IDEAS & INFORMATION HELP
:heart::womanhappy: I have yet to hear anyone speak while doing launches, TS, eye makeup or makeup in general for Us Girlz who Must wear glasses. I had perfect vision as a child, I read too much, from the Phone Book, LOL, to the whole Britanica Encyclopedia to every Magazine published. Yes, a hot grl from the Jersey Shore, but an avid reader. I ruined my own eyesight because I wanted to READ THROUGH MY JOURNEY OF LIFE, Superb Grades, College still a geek, and now, stuck with Glasses.
Lines are minimal for my age, but I don’t play on my eyes, which are big and hazel brown. I can not wear contacts, so I enjoy using my glasses as a playful piece of jewelry. LOL
I know how to do smokey eye, etc, but there must be women on the runway with glasses?
I do know you can I love a blue hued mascara on top to give me a Pop, it brings out the white in your eyes.
I won’t leave home without my BFF eyebrows, when I was 5, I fell lost majority of my eyebrow to a many stitches, hair never grew back. Love my BFF Stacy who addressed that years ago, with my taupe eyebrows. shh, no one knows, LOL. accent my auburn & burgundy hair with different frames. Does anyone wear Glasses? love hearing from you … thanks with deep appreciation on this this quiet subject.
Many Thanks and Sending You Joy for the New Year to YOU 🙂
:womanhappy:Thank YOU ALL for your input, Have A Super Weeek, and gives me some great ideas. Will definitely check them all out 🙂
I would say your best bet and lots of answers is to go to YouTube and search for ‘makeup for glasses.’ You’ll get actual demos, how-to’s, and a variety of ages and face shapes. You don’t need to subscribe or join to search and watch YT videos.
I have been told that when wearing glasses to use a heavier hand when applying your eye make-up. I like that idea since I am so fair complected with very light eyes, I am usually a little intimidated to use heavier/darker shadows and liners, but when I wear glasses I feel like I get to change it up a bit.
I don’t wear glasses (only reading glasses), but I know some girls who are very successfully wearing eye liner with theirs. If your eyes are sensitive, Physician’s Formula works great.
For what it’s worth – don’t blame yourself. It appears research indicates that you can’t ruin your eyes through too much reading, it’s all pure genetics.
From everything I hear, women with glasses are considered to be super sexy. I was even reading an interview with a hostess of a large Eastern European hotel who wears glasses instead of contacts to go for the ‘sexy livrarian’ look – abd claims extreme success with it.
I went and there are so many sites on google that show how to do makeup on eyes under glasses – too bad I can’t give you some of the ones I liked.
Here’s L’Oreal’s take:
Notice the eye lashes and the eye liner – but the site gives you step by step on shadows too.
ToffeeDude, thank you for this great post. Yes I wear glasses quite frequently now and expect that it will be full-time before too long.
TOFFEE—I do not wear glasses yet know that you have many options, I love to take and pat a Marilyn Miglin cream called cameo into the inner corner as a way of opening up the eye as well as brightning Cameo is not sold here but I hope we have the option soon to buy. Yoy can visit Marilyn’s site…After applying pea size ammounts to inner corners you can now dust on an all over powder foundation as an eyelid setting base, one shade lighter than your skin tone.YBF offers 2. NOW FOR THE EASY and FUN part -I love a shade by LANCOME color design in TOUCH OF CORAL-….This is applied just like the powder foundation all over. I then say play around the outer corners with your fave liners staying withen the eye glass frame you can do you smoky or basic line- You now have the option of using IVY-shades, to smoke the outer corners. Turquoise sounds dated yet by adding it to your upper lash line in the very center above the iris IT IS STUNNING- I am not a huge fan of heavy contouring with to many shadows if you wear glasses as it can cause a tired look. Focal points should be liner, and the basic canvas …A smoothe canvas, and a stark ivy in the uppder lash line as well as a basic ebony in the water line -LOWER LASH Line outer corner, So many try wearing heavy liner on the bottom lash water line only to look tired- Keep the liner in the outer corner.
I hope this is helpful—BEAUTYBOY
