Actually, a pair of glasses can be a beautiful fashion accessory. However, women who need strong lenses, in particular, find it a challenge to pair their glasses with make-up. Here are some hints for women who have this problem.
The first thing you need to be mindful of is the use of the proper foundation for your face. Make sure your make-up is wipe-proof and water resistant, to avoid unattractive lines below the glasses and at the sides of the nose. Given that eyeglass frames frequently cast a shadow across the face, it helps to use a foundation that is one shade lighter than your natural skin tone in these areas. Apply a thin layer to the lid and beneath the eyes. If your skin has a tendency to be oily, the use of a light powder will help to reduce shiny areas in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).
Women who wear glasses should pay particular attention to their eye make-up. If your vision is very blurry without your glasses, ask your eye care professional about so-called make-up glasses. These glasses allow you to fold each of the lenses away individually. As a result, one of your eyes can see very well while you are applying make-up to the other one. Of course you can also use a make-up mirror with a zoom effect. It’s another way to simplify the application of eye make-up and one that is great for travel as well.
It's amazing how a new pair of frames can completely change your look.
