Be light handed

When applying concelear under your eyes make sure not to over do it as your undereyes can end up looking very cakey. For your eyes not to look sunked-in, use a liquid concealer. Keep on blending until your undereyes are flawless.

Curl lashes

Cumpling mascara is the worst! Use a mascara that has a smaller brush. The emphasis should be on the root of your lashes and not the tips. Avoid mascaras that will give your lashes maximum extension because they will keep hitting the lenses, leaving them dirty.

Ditch the dark shadows

Look for a pallette that has neutral and warm shades. Your eyes will appear bigger and brighter but still you giving you a natural look. Champagnes and pearly colours will draw light to your eyes.

Line it up

Yes, girls who wear glasses can still wear eyeliner.Instead of the common black rather go for bronze, brown, white and navy. How thick you apply the liner will be determined by how thick your lenses are.

Opt for translusent powder

Lightly apply this all over your face to stop it from coming off on your glasses and you should be set for the whole day.
