If you love makeup and experimenting with different looks—and also wear glasses—you probably know how disappointing it can be when you craft a beautiful eyeshadow look and then just cover it up with your glasses. But there are actually ways you can do your makeup that will look even better once you put your glasses on. Here are some tips.

Balance Your Frames

One of the main things to think about is how to balance out the look of your glasses frames with your eye makeup. If your glasses are colorful, go for a neutral eye. If they’re bold, try a more minimal eye look. If they’re clear and barely noticeable, you can go more dramatic. Get the idea?

Curl Your Lashes

It’s always annoying when you get mascara on your lenses because your eyelashes brush up against your glasses. If you want to avoid this, curl your lashes. This will also help open up your eyes visually.

Have Fun With Lip Colors

While glasses might clash with crazy eye shadow looks sometimes, they pair really nicely with fun, exciting lip colors. So play around with different colors, mixing and matching with the tones in your glasses frames.
