Naked with glasses

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan
Do you wear glasses?

I do…and I have been wearing since 6th grade L
Glasses cast a shadow under the eye area…so dark circle or not, you are bound to have a darker shadow under your eyes. That’s why it’s quite intimidating to flaunt a Smokey eye while wearing your spectacles.

I came up with this eye look mainly using Urban Decay Naked palette-1 (yes. it’s THAT naked) and

ELF cream eyeliner in Black. On the lips I have used MAC lip pencil in Spice. I have used a Revlon pinkish-brown blush slightly under the jaw bone to contour.

Some useful pointers for my fellow glass wearers while doing the Smokey eye makeup:-

1.

 Make sure your frame does not take priority over your eye makeup. Rimless or thin framed glasses are the best option.


2. 

You must use an under eye liquid concealer…but AFTER the eye makeup. Because it erases any mishaps or fall out of the eye shadows.


3. 

Add little amount of color and gradually build it. While doing the makeup, pause and put on your glasses to check the color intensity. If you are not happy with the result, you can always add more. Just try to avoid anything too glittery or shimmery because I personally feel that the glitter kind of clash with the glasses.


4. 

Focus on your upper eye area. If your glasses make your eyes look smaller then it’s best to skip lining the lower lash line OR if you do want to line the lower lash then use a nude eye liner.


5. 

Lashes tend to disappear behind glasses. So curl your lashes and use mascara. Don’t forget the lower lashes.


6. 

Use a clear brow setting gel to tidy up your brows. Use a lighter neutral highlighter on the arch and a slight shimmery one on the highest point. 

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks! Glasses can be really annoying when you are trying to glam up for a night out.

    Nice reading! I agreed with you on the fact that glasses cast dark shadow under the eye and its look like that a person have dark circles. This is really very annoying, by wearing smoky eye makeup we can deal with this problem to a great extent.
