  • Apply minimal foundation on your nose to avoid dents and marks.
  • Use an oil-absorbing primer or matte foundation if you have oily skin.
  • Apply foundation lightly, especially where your glasses sit, and use pinpoint concealing for extra coverage on specific areas.


  • Use a light-reflective concealer around your eyes to counteract shadows from glasses.
  • For long-lasting coverage, mix a non-creasing concealer with a light-reflective one.
  • Apply primer on your eyelids and under your eyes to prevent creasing and sliding.

  • Tailor your eye makeup based on whether your glasses magnify or minimize your eyes:
    • For magnified eyes: Use matte shades, well-blended eyeliner, and avoid heavy glitter.
    • For minimized eyes: Use light shades to open up your eyes, light eyeliner, and avoid dark waterlines.


  • Curl your lashes to prevent them from touching the lenses.
  • Use a waterproof or long-lasting mascara to avoid smudging.
  • For magnified eyes: Choose a separating mascara and comb through to avoid clumps.
  • For minimized eyes: Use volumizing mascara to enhance the lashes.


  • Keep brows groomed and clean up stray hairs, especially if they are magnified by your lenses.
  • Avoid making brows too dark if your frames are heavy and dark to maintain balance.

Finishing Touches:

  • Set foundation and concealer with powder, especially on oily areas.
  • Use highlighter to add light to areas around your eyes, adjusting the intensity based on magnification.
  • Apply blush and lipstick as usual, considering your overall look and personal style.
