All the right make-up tips when wearing prescription glasses, following 4 simple golden rules

When carrying the eyeglasses one is often unsure which is the best way to go put on makeup, without letting the eyes disappear behind the lenses.

First of all try to think of wearing a glamorous accessory and not a mortifying "hindrance". We reveal a few and simple ones rules to follow to enhance the look with eyeglasses.


How to wear makeup with glasses in 4 steps

1. Emphasize the gaze as much as possible. Lenses tend to make your eyes smaller, you have to make them bigger with smokey eyes intense and the right techniques of chiaroscuro, intensifying the outer corner and crease of the eye. Never forget to highlight the top rhyme with a eyeliner and the lower one with a pencil nuanced.

2. Define the eyebrows. They are the element that distracts attention from the frame by framing the gaze. Use a highlighter just below the arch, define and fill the shape with a waterproof product.

3. Cover dark circles. The reflection of the lenses and frame creates a shadow in the dark circles area. Blend a corrector high coverage (using a little product to avoid creases!) and give a final touch with an illuminating concealer.

4. Balance the rest of the face. With glasses all the attention is shifted to the eyes, risking to make the rest of the face disappear. Rebalance the proportions by also making up your lips. If you don't like strong colors, opt for a bright gloss anyway.
