4 Statement Makeup Looks For Girls Who Wear Glasses

11 Jan 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

Just because you’re the only frame-wearing chick in the homeroom, doesn’t mean you have to stick to boring makeup. Amp up your specs appeal with these geek-chic beauty looks!

BLING IT UP

It’s the start of a brand new year and it’s the perfect time to experiment with bolder makeup styles. Take a cue from beauty influencer Cloe, who added a dash of fun to her look with a bright-eyed flutter. To really make her peepers pop, she went with sparkly lashes for extra bling and a wash of peachy eyeshadow all over her eye area. Talk about eye-catching!

Tip: If your lashes are always hitting your lenses, use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes upwards from the roots before setting it with a voluminous mascara.

GO GOTHIC

Vamp up your routine with makeup artist Arielle’s modern take on the ’90s-inspired grunge look – think porcelain skin, jet-black liner and pillowy brown lips a la Kylie Jenner. Pop on some statement glasses and you’ll look like you stepped straight out of an old-school gothic novel (but even cooler).

Tip: Wearing spectacles tend to create emphasis on your undereye circles, so be sure to cover up any discolourations with a concealer.

Pastel Dream

If you’re going for a pair of silver frames, why not coordinate the look with this gorgeous lilac look by social media It girl Nyané? A softer alternative to the Pantone-approved ultra violet, this universally-flattering shade is easy to pull off and looks great on all skin tones. To add a bit of glow, dab on some shimmer on the lids and a smidge of highlighter on the tip of your nose.

Tip: Pastels tend to look muted when worn alone. The trick is to use eyeshadows that pack a lot of pigment and have a buildable formula so you can layer on for a stronger colour effect.

K-Palette Real Strong Eyeliner, $21.90
Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ultra Violet, $42

Party Red-Y

Be loud and proud with a punchy makeup look, just like beauty YouTuber Alice! To achieve her colourful winged liner look, sweep on a rosy eyeshadow followed by a thin flick of fuchsia eyeliner on the outer corners of your eye. Slap on a tantalising red smacker and some statement accessories as the finishing touches – and you’re ready to party!

Tip: Well-groomed brows help to frame your eyes (and glasses) while highlighting your features, so don’t forget to fill in your arches!
