Tips to Wearing Makeup With Glasses
I don't mention this often but I always use the lightest shade in the @katvondbeauty shade + light contour kit under my eyes. It brightens up your undereyes so any shadows that your glasses cast doesn't look as harsh #glasses #makeupforglasses #girlswithglasses #girlsinglasses #motd #motn #wakeupandmakeup #lookamillion #dressyourface #brunette #glassesgirl #blueeyes #katvond #wetnwildbeauty #ardelllashes #elfcosmetics #makeup #makeupobsessed #mua #vegas_nay #laurag143 #hudabeauty
Gorgeous, no? Sam says it's all about the mascara when trying to make your eyes stand out under those frames.
"I use a really black, thickening mascara on my top lashes and a lengthening one on my lower lashes. Lengthening mascaras work best on lower lashes because they won’t touch your lenses when you’re wearing glasses. I like to add a thickening mascara to the top lashes so your lashes are voluminous without the length and annoyance of them hitting your lenses. Having great lashes automatically makes any other eye makeup look sultrier, even if it’s a neutral look."
Who wouldn't want to rock a sultry look on the daily? Aside from mascara, Sam attributes her bright makeup looks looks to hyper pigmented eye shadows and strong primers. According to her, "the more pigmented, the more noticeable it will be behind glasses."
