Eye Make Up Tips for Glasses Part One

by Beth Griffiths on 16th May 2017

If you want to make your eyes the focal point of your face rather than your prescription glasses, it’s a good idea to pick up some great makeup tips. The makeup artist Ariane Poole put together some great pieces of advice that she uses to help dramatise the eyes for Channel Four. Here are some of the main pointers, see what new tricks you can learn.

Make Up Tips for Far Sighted Prescription Glasses

First of all, Ariane recommended that you avoid shimmering shades or pale colours. The reason for this is because the far-sighted glasses can make the eyes appear larger. If you use frosted or shimmering tones the effect can create a bug-eyed appearance which is something to be avoided.

The best option is to choose matte tones but to avoid anything that is too light. Look for bright colours and experiment to find a shade that suits you. If you really don’t like to wear colour, you could stick to a safer option such as taupe or a soft lilac.

If you would like your eyes to appear smaller you can achieve this by defining your eye and using smokey tones such as navy blues, dark plums, and brown. Use most of the colour closer to your lashline.

To complete the look try and avoid using too much mascara. When you wear a lot of mascara or even fake eyelashes they can hit your glasses and you could end up damaging your lashes.
