Eye makeup tips for girls who wear glasses

You’ve pinned several eye makeup looks to your Pinterest board, but haven’t tried a single look because you find it pointless to ace an eye makeup only to have it hidden behind a pair of glasses. Yes, girls with specs, I’m talking to you!

But wait, before you relegate yourself to a life with no eye makeup (how boring), hear us out. We’ve got some super useful tips up our sleeves that will make your eye makeup pop even with glasses on. Don’t believe us? We come with proof.


Wear coloured eyeliner

Apply mascara on the roots

It’s time to give that black eyeliner a break and add some coloured eyeliners in your makeup kit. Colours like burgundy, green, blue brighten up the eye area. The Lakme Insta Eye Liner – Green and Blue are some stunning hues that will add definition, as well as, make you look stylish AF!


Inner corner highlight

Apply mascara on the roots

Instead of the regular golden eyeshadow, dab a little bit of bright coloured eyeshadow on the inner corner of your eyes to alleviate your look. Colours like light blue, pink and mint green look great. You can find these colours in the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye shadow Pallete - Midnight Magic.


Smokey burgundy eye

Apply mascara on the roots

Ditch the black and try the burgundy smokey eye look instead. Choose a deep plum eyeshadow or gel eyeliner and apply it close to the lash line. Then blend it outwards to get the perfect look.


Use eyelash curler

Apply mascara on the roots

Don’t have an eyelash curler? Well, it’s about time you invest in one. Not curling your lashes before applying mascara will cause your lashes to touch your glasses and can get really annoying. Thus, it’s best to curl your lashes to avoid them from touching the glasses and allowing you to blink comfortably.


Apply mascara on the roots

Apply mascara on the roots

To prevent your lashes from becoming too heavy at the tip and hitting your glasses, here’s a trick you can try. Apply the first coat from root to tip as you normally do, but while applying the second coat only focus on the roots.
