Shell out for an excellent magnifying mirror.
A Good Mirror Makes All The Difference. Because Glasses-wearers Frequently Need To Remove Their Specs To Apply Eye Makeup And Glasses, They Need A Vision-improving Tool. According To UK Makeup And Glasses Artist Elaine Wilkinson, "The First Investment for Glasses- Wearers should Be A Quality Magnifying Mirror."
These Reflecting Surfaces Allow Nearsighted Clients The Ability To See What They're Doing, Even Without The Help Of Their Glasses. Brands Like Hollywood Mirrors, Miusco, And Chende Craft Mirrors That Are Pricey, But If You're Wearing Eye Makeup And Glasses Daily, Their Technical Precision And Excellent Lighting Make Them Well Worth The Dough.
Remember That Different Makeup And Glasses Rules Apply For Nearsighted And Farsighted Glasses Wearers. If you're wearing glasses due to nearsightedness, your lens prescription can have a shrinking effect on your eyes. Luckily, some strategic Makeup and Glasses choices can counteract this illusion.
If you're wearing glasses that make your eyes appear smaller, I like to use eye shadows with a sheen. A satin or shimmer finish will help draw attention to the eyes," recommends NYC-based Makeup and Glasses artist Margins Dennis.
For this purpose, Dennis especially likes the shimmery shadows from Natasha Danone and By Terry. In terms of eyeliner, Dennis suggests a defined liquid or gel liner on the lash line and a highlighting liner in the waterline.
On the flip side, folks who wear glasses for farsightedness often find their eyes magnified by their lenses, pulling focus from the rest of the face. To downplay the eyes, Dennis recommends using matte eye shadows. She also recommends skipping the liquid or gel liner, instead of "smudging eye shadow around the eyes in place of liner" for a more low-key look.
To prevent foundation and concealer from sticking to your frames
Finding formulas that don't stick to your frames can be tough. Glasses-wearers who use facial cosmetics like foundation and concealer are all too familiar with the tendency of these formulas to smear against and stick to frames.
If your Makeup and Glasses cause to slip and slide down the bridge of your nose an annoying and all too common occurrence NYC Makeup and Glasses artist Kasey Adam Swickard has a simple solution.
Because Makeup and Glasses can become greasy and glasses can slide down the nose, I like to use a matte moisturizer on the bridge of the nose to prevent oil formation," Spickard tells INSIDER, calling out Bioderma Sebium Mat Control as a particularly effective example.
Once you've finished your face, Spickard recommends a setting spray to preserve the look and keep your glasses in place. "Urban Decay All Night Long-Lasting Makeup and Glasses Setting Spray is great and will prevent that dreaded Makeup and Glasses transfer onto your glasses!"
