Makeup for Glasses Tutorial

My makeup routine is completely different on days when I choose to wear my glasses compared to what I would do if I were to wear contacts. With glasses, I do a lot less eyeshadow and usually opt out of eyeliner. I just got some new glasses, which inspired me to create a dedicated tutorial sharing one of my favorite makeup looks that I like to wear with them. But glasses or no glasses, this look is quick, easy, neutral, and perfect for every day!
Even though this is an incredibly simple look, it’s always important to start with a primer first. I used the Milani eyeshadow primer because it’s completely nude and matte, which makes it perfect for this look. This primer is super affordable and ideal for all skin types!
This look can be done with so many different palettes, or single shadows, but I’m choosing to use the Wet in Wild Rose in the Air eyeshadow palette. It’s amazing quality and has everything I need all in one place. First, I’m taking cool-toned transition shade at the top of the palette and blending that into my crease.
Then I’m taking the light matte cream color and putting that over the rest of my eyelid. To get the most intense color payoff, I packed it on with my finger first and then blended it into the inner crease area with a small shader brush. The popular Wet n Wild single in the shade Brulee would also be great for this step.
This step is optional, but I also decided to use the warm-toned transition shade in the bottom of the palette and blend that in with the other transition shade in the crease. This will add a little more dimension and I love the way the two undertones look when paired together.
Going back into the matte cream color, I’m using that to highlight the brow bone and very inner corner of the eye. The shimmery gold in this palette isn’t my favorite, but it would be a great alternative to use on the eyes to provide more of a textural contrast when using this matte shade to brighten.
Then I’m going into the darkest brown shade in the palette and using an angled eyeliner brush to apply that halfway along both my upper and lower lashes. This is one of my favorite tricks for making the lashes appear fuller. You can read more about that here.
Now all there’s left to do is lashes. I curled them twice and applied one coat of the Pixi Black Lacquer Lash Primer. I let them dry almost completely before finishing with two coats of my favorite Benefit Roller Lash mascara. The Roller Lash is amazing on its own, but since there’s such minimal makeup on the eyes, I really like the play up the lashes in this look as much as possible and this primer helps take it to a whole new level.
Here’s a more condensed guide for easy reference:
For the rest of the face, I used all my favorites -- the Maybelline TattooStudio Brow Pomade, Makeup Geek bronzers and blush (Heart Throb), and the L’oreal Infallible Lip Paint in Spicy Blush.
I used to never leave the house wearing my glasses. I always did a full face of makeup with my contacts in and hair done. Now, I’m much more comfortable (literally) wearing glasses and just letting my natural hair breathe. The minimal time it takes to get ready in this way is also very attractive. Nothing like being able to leave the house in 20 minutes!
