Glasses often cast shadows on the eyes. You could lighten up the skin surrounding the nose and under the eyes by making use of foundation that is lighter than the color of your skin. Avoid using liquid foundation since it can stick to your frame!
Do Your Brows
Your eyebrows frame your glasses! First and foremost, keep your brows clean. Second, make sure the shape of your brow matches the size of your frames. For bigger and bolder frames, thin and shaped eyebrows work best. Full and defined eyebrows work best with thinner frames.
Wearing glasses does not mean eye make-up needs to be boring! No, you do not have to ditch the smoky eyes. All you have to do is double the liner!
Another way of drawing people into those pretty eyes is the smudged liner. Just a smudge along the upper lid or lower lid works perfectly fine.

Note – 1. If your eyes appear a lot smaller because of your glasses, make sure you use eyeliner all around your eyes. 2. Eyes appear a lot bigger because of your glasses? Use just a bit of liner. Do not go all around. 3. If you have thick frames, the eyeliner should mimic that. As for thin frames, thin liner, please!

Eye Lash Curler
If you do not want to wear a mascara, an eyelash curler is a great and safe way of making your lashes appear longer!
When choosing an eye shadow, make sure you take into consideration the color of your frames. If you want to have the same color as your frames on your eyelids, try a base hue that’s a shade lighter, and go a few shades darker for the crease color.
Remember : Wearing a bright colored eye shadow can make your eyes look heavy behind the frames. It is safer to choose warm and neutral tones for the eyelids.
The best way to look natural is to add on some blush along the apples of your cheeks. Also, you can use a highlighter on and around your cheekbones to make your face look thinner.
And most importantly, don’t forget to wear your glasses with pride and confidence!To draw attention away from your frames, you can always pull out those bright bold shades lying in your drawer! However, what needs to be kept in mind is to either highlight the eyes or the lips – never both! Underplay your lips if you have chosen a dramatic eye shadow application. You could opt for neutral shades or even gloss.
