What makeup do you wear with glasses?

Do you wear makeup when you wear glasses? I know a lot of glasses wearers who don’t wear makeup anyway, but are really shy of wearing eye makeup because they don’t want to look too overdone. I also know some people who wear glasses who wear very heavy eye makeup and I think it looks terrible. How do you find the happy medium?

Makeup you can wear with glassesFor me, it depends on what I’m wearing for frames. I am a glasses wearer in the colder months mostly (when I choose to wear them at all) and I tend to stick to contacts in the summer. My reason? I don’t like extra gear on my face when it’s hot out. I will sometimes wear glasses to give my eyes a break from lenses and sometimes I’ll wear them as a fashion statement if I just like the frames that I have. Currently, I have dark frames and with a plastic nosepiece instead of the little silicone nose pads that you can move around. I’m still trying to get used to how much/what kind of makeup I can wear with them. By the way, I got some questions on Instagram and wanted to mention these frames are Ashcroft in Olive by Seraphin. 

glasses makeupThe extent of my “glasses” makeup was a foundation set with a translucent powder, some neutral blush and lipstick, and minimal eye makeup. I struggle wearing eye makeup with glasses because my lashes are long and if I wear too much mascara, they’ll hit my frames. I wore a neutral wash of color all over my lid with no eyeliner here. Kind of boring! Most importantly though, I have a defined brow here. I think that’s really necessary when wearing glasses because glasses draw more attention to that area. 

What do you wear for makeup if you are wearing glasses? I’d love some tips!

    I don’t really do anything different when wearing glasses but I also don’t usually do very dramatic eye looks. The most annoying part is just having foundation on the nose part.

    My vision is now so bad that they don’t make contacts for my prescription. It also means I’m way to blind to do any sort of makeup without my glasses on – even just concealing. It’s so upsetting 🙁
