While geek is the new chic, wearing glasses comes with its own set of drawbacks, especially with regard to makeup. All those who wear glasses on an everyday basis will know that the struggle to make your eye makeup stand out can be real. Well, not anymore! We’ve heard your struggles and therefore, found some chic ways to up your glamour quotient in those glasses.
So, the next time you are ready to step out and reach for your contact lenses, don’t! Here’s how you can ace your makeup with your glasses still on...
- Ditch the black liner for a flattering colour
- Add more mascara at the root of your lashes
- Keep your eyeshadow colours neutral
- Never skip concealer
- Define your brows
Ditch the black liner for a flattering colour
Black eyeliner or eyeshadow can tend to look too loud, especially under your glasses. Therefore, we suggest you opt for a more flattering colour, such as bottle green or ink blue. You can get your hands on the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Gel Eye Liner - Aqua Blue or the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Eye Definer - Cobalt that’ll brighten up your eyes and add extra oomph to your eye makeup.
Add more mascara at the root of your lashes
Start by curling your lashes and focus on the roots. That way you won’t have your lashes grazing the glass as you blink. Then, apply the first coat of mascara from root to tips how you normally would. However, focus the second coat on just the roots of your lashes and not the tips. Because if your tips are as heavy as the base, they’ll fall straight again, thereby hitting the glass.
Keep your eyeshadow colours neutral
A darker eyeshadow can automatically make your eye makeup look OTT. Therefore, it’s best to stick to neutral shades such as rose gold or brick brown. Also, you can go for shimmer instead of matte as it is more flattering and won’t look too heavy on your eyes. Get your hands on the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Desert Rose that comes with shimmer particles and the high-intensity powders promise to give your eyes a defined finish.
Never skip concealer
Make concealers your best friend, especially if you’re someone who’s always with their glasses on. If you think that glasses hide your dark under eye circles, you’re wrong! In fact, the glasses tend to magnify the dark circles, making them even more prominent. We suggest you use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 - 03 Medium to conceal and cover dark circles and blemishes instantly.
Define your brows
Even though your eyebrows may get covered by your glasses, you cannot neglect them. Defined brows help frame your face for a makeup look that feels complete. To make them stand out, get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown for naturally styled and evenly filled brows that is sure to make a statement.
