Easy Makeup For Glasses #1

Hey everybody !! So, 80 % of the time you'll see me wearing glasses because I rarely wear contacts....glasses are easy, handy and look super chic too....so today I am going to show you a simple makeup look which is perfect to wear with glasses....you should always wear glasses that suit your facial shape and does not make your face look small or sunken....

so, without further ado lets go ahead and get started,


STEP A)


1. Moisturize

First of all clean your face, apply your toner and then apply your favorite moisturizer, I am using my Neutrogena oil free moisturizer, I had also mentioned it in my November favorites HERE

2. Primer ,foundation, concealer and powder

A primer is a very important step in your makeup routine as it helps the foundation to stay on a little longer and spread smoothly. I am using Inglot under makeup base here. I do not like to use foundation on a daily basis, I am happy with my concealer and bb cream for everyday use. For concealer I am using Revlon photoready concealer which is also my current love. For powder I am using my Rimmel stay matte pressed powder.

NOTE: Always make sure you hide your dark circles completely when you apply your glasses because dark circles tend to get highlighted when you wear glasses

Blush

Don't over do the blush as you want your glasses to be the center of attention. I apply a slight hint of pink with my maybelline dream mousse blush in soft plum

STEP B)

Your eyebrows frame your face, specially when you are wearing glasses, so fill in your brows if you have any sparse areas and set them with a gel if you have feathery eyebrows like mine...I am using oriflame's eye brow pencil and nyx's brow gel


STEP C) 



1. Apply an eyeshadow primer on your eyelid and spread evenly, I am using faces metallic eyeshadow primer

2. Now taking a flat shader brush, apply a color close to your skin tone all over your eyelid, I am taking this nude color from my rimmel quad in sun safari

3. Taking a soft pink color apply this on your crease in a wiper motion and blend. I am using this pink from my latest palette which i bought a few days back....you can see the haul HERE

4. Now apply a pencil liner close to your lash line... don't take a smudge free liner as we are going to smudge it.Also, apply some on your lower lashline as well. I am using my revlon pencil liner here

5. Smudge the line using a smudge brush or a pencil brush or a cotton bud..


6. Apply kohl on your water line and tightline

7. Now curl your lashes and apply mascara...keep in mind to use a volumizing rather than lengthening mascara..I am using my favorite colossal volume express mascara



STEP D)

Apply a shade close to your skin tone, you can add a pop of color on your lips if you have nothing going on, on your eyes but since we have applied shadow on our eyes we need to keep the lips lighter for a day time look. I am using my colorbar take me as i am lip color in flirtatious pink and maybelline water shine gloss



and...you are done.....I hope you like this look..please let me know in the comments below if you have any suggestions.

SOME TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND :

1. Decide whether you want a pop of color on the lips or draw attention to the eyes..keep one of the things muted

2. Do not apply too much on the eyes as we want the frames to be the centre of attention

3. girls wearing glasses have problem of creasing and sweating around the nose, so make sure you apply enough powder to set it.

4. eyes of myopic people look smaller with glasses and hyperopic people look bigger with glasses, so do your makeup accordingly

5. don't wear harsh eyeliner, apply it according to the thickness of your frames.

  8. Hi ,

    You look so beautiful in the pic. Thanks for sharing so many tips. After reading your post, now I got to know two more products which I was not aware of one is Primer and another is brow gel. Next time whenever I will go for makeup shopping, will surely buy both of this product.

    Thanks
