Optometrist: 9 Tips to Make your Makeup Pop with Glasses

January 12th, 2018

Makeup was created to enhance beauty and so should your eyeglasses. So, whatever look you wish to achieve, there’s always something that complements your unique features.  Let’s take a look at 9 ways to look good with glasses.

Optometrist Insights: 9 Ways to Look Good with Glasses 


1. Keep it Clean

First and foremost, keep it clean.  Makeup is a fun and a easy way to enhance your looks to makes your eyes pop!  But make sure you keep your tools and eyes clean. Keeping them clean is paramount to maintaining your eye health according to eye doctors.  Your optometrist  may also advise that improperly wearing makeup may lead to eye conditions and cause red, itchy eyes.


2. Wash off your makeup before going to sleep

Never share makeup! Top eye doctors advise that sharing makeup, most especially the ones that touch your eyelids, spell danger and this usually happens when sampling products at a department store. Always ask for a fresh applicator. If they can’t provide you with that—save testing until the next time you shop.


3. Contour

Play around with your face’s structure by contouring your face’s natural architecture. This helps create a canvas for your glasses and enhance the true showpiece that they are!


4. Brows

Match your brows to your chosen frames for the day. Big full brows are in-style right now but may go against those amazing thick frames you want to rock!


5. Don’t be afraid to be Lippy!

If lipstick is your thing, feel free to rock it! Avoid wearing heavy looks on your eyes and lips at the same time. Focus on one feature at a time; this goes for whether your look includes glasses or not!


6. Have Fun!

Make sure to enjoy your style by wearing whatever glasses make you feel unique and confident! Don’t be afraid to wear a bold look with bold frames. You can opt to stay soft and natural—anything that makes you and your eyes most comfortable with is better!


7. Choose the right glasses!

Picking a frame shape that compliments your face’s anatomy goes a long way in completing your look!


8. Visit an optometrist!

There are so many ways you can protect your eyes with sunglasses but look great too. However, your Jacksonville’s optometrist can suggest the best ones for you not only in terms of design but for eye protection as well.


Always consider your lifestyle to make sure you protect your eyes.


9. Take note if you have DES!

If you have dry eye syndrome (DES), take a look at those wider frames that can cover most of your eye area. This hinders the dust from coming into contact with your eyes.  Ask your eye doctor if you suspect DES.


Remember the sun can still shine through even if you are wearing a pair of sunglasses. Be sure to get something with a UV protection; remember—squinting leads to developing fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes.


Its great to look good. But you also have to take care of your eyes as they are one of the essential parts of your sensory.
