Wearing makeup can be quite a challenge for girls who wear glasses, but that certainly doesn't make it an impossible feat. Hiding behind your frames is a no-no, so don't let your specs keep you from confidently snapping a selfie or two. By now we've said it a dozen times: Geek is chic, and all you have to do is unleash the beauty nerd in you.
Read on below for a virtual crash course on how to wear makeup while wearing your glasses—with lessons straight from your favorite celebs!
Want to sport makeup underneath your glasses but not willing to go all-in? If you're feeling iffy about leaving your comfort zone, start small with a look that's closest to au naturel. Groom your arches to achieve a strong brow game, but keep your eye makeup to a minimum. For your lippie, pick a rosy shade that’s almost similar to your natural lip color.
Sporting a statement lip color is one of the oldest tricks in the book, and it always does what needs to be done. This requires a certain level of confidence to pull off, but when all else fails, you can trust that your punchy red lipstick can instantly perk up your nerdy look. Or, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, a bold dark lip may be exactly what you need.
Now this is where we put your makeup skills to the test! Wearing a pair of glasses shouldn’t really keep you from exploring further in the beauty department. Rather than trying to match your makeup to your specs, do it the other way around and opt for a pair that will complement and highlight your look.
