Eyewear with large and eye-catching frames attracts a lot of attention. Therefore, avoid applying too much eye makeup. This can be compensated with intensively coloured lipstick. But you should make sure that the colour of your lipstick and your eyeglass frame harmonize well.
The Shape of the Eyebrows:
As the glasses direct the view of the other person to the eye area, the eyebrows should also be well defined. Regular plucking and reshaping should be part of your bath routine. Thinner or lighter areas can be optimized with an eyebrow pencil.
The Use of Eyeliner:
An easy and glamorous eye make-up is best achieved with a gel eyeliner. If your glasses have a thick frame, you can apply the eyeliner a little wider. The emphasis on your eyes is, thus, assured. If the eyeglass frame is thinner, the eyeliner should also be narrower for a better proportion. You can apply a lot of mascara to your eyelashes.
Secret Weapon Concealer:
When wearing glasses, an additional shadow is thrown on the face. With a concealer, you not only cover the dark rings under your eyes, but also conceal the shadow of the glasses. Simply apply the cream fan-shaped under the eyes and pull it a little further down than usual – et voilà, eyeglass shadow passé!

Finally, apply mascara to the upper eyelashes and leave the lower ones “natural”.
