4 Makeup Tips For Eyeglass Wearers + Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

Firmoo provided me with a pair of eyeglasses for review but as always all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Hello friends!

Today I'm going to be sharing my favorite makeup tips for eyeglass wearers and reviewing this fabulous pair of eyeglasses from Firmoo.

If you wear eyeglasses you know how easy it is to let your makeup routine get a little boring. But it doesn't have to be that way! You can rock any look- yes even a dramatic smokey eye- as long as you incorporate these 4 Makeup Tips For Eyeglass Wearers that will ensure your makeup doesn't get overlooked behind your eye wear, even if they are as fabulous as these glasses!



Before I get into the useful makeup tips let me tell you how much I love these eyeglasses. Yes I said love and love I do mean!

I went out of my comfort zone when picking this pair out and I'm so glad I did. They are such a classic, retro, fun style that is sure to get others to notice them. I've never had so many compliments on a pair of eyeglasses!



And honestly, if I were to see this pair on someone else I think I would compliment them too! They're very eye catching.

My favorite detail is their size and shape. They rock this beautiful round shape and the lenses are bigger than the average lens which I think adds to it's uniqueness.

The fact that the lenses are bigger than the average squared lens I'm used to helps make my eyes appear bigger which is always a plus for me. This gal doesn't want teeny tiny eyes!

Another thing I appreciate about these eyeglasses is how my long eyelashes don't hit the lenses every time I blink- and I do blink more than the average person. What can I say, I'm a blinker.

I would always have to wear any pair of eyeglasses a little lower on the bridge of my nose to avoid a "lash meets lens" situation but I no longer have this problem with this pair! Hallelujah, now I can blink away!



These aren't the only fabulous eyeglasses Firmoo has available. If you visit their website you will find a great selection of styles that is sure to please anyone's taste. They provide impressive service and my eyeglasses arrived very quickly with no damage to them.


With that said, I think any eyeglass wearer would appreciate some makeup tips that will help keep the face balanced, right?

Here are my 4 Makeup Tips For Eyeglass Wearers:




1. Fill in those eyebrows, gals! They can get easily lost behind your frames but filling them out  brings back their purpose- to frame your face!

2. Conceal, brighten and highlight the under eye area. Your eyeglasses have a tendency to cast a shadow around the area you least want any shadows- your under eye area! Shadows around this area will make you look tired and older so counter attack these "eyeglass shadows" by using a concealer under your eyes and taking the concealer all the way down to the apples of your cheeks and towards the temples. Add a little highlight to the your cheekbones for an extra brightening effect.

3. Bring out your eyes. Just like your eyebrows, your eyes can get lost behind your eyeglasses or even appear smaller so be sure to not ignore them. Use eye shadows, mascara and liner to enhance your eye shape and bring them back to center stage. Don't be afraid to play around with colors and techniques. Just because you wear eyeglasses doesn't mean you always have to rock a neutral work eye look.

4. Don't forget about your lips! Balance everything out by adding some color and/or gloss to your lips. People naturally are drawn to the top half of your face when you're wearing eyeglasses so give them a reason to look a little lower by adding a pop of color to the kisser.

Do you wear eyeglasses? What are your favorite styles and do you have any makeup tips for eyeglass wearing gals? Please do share!

Love your glasses! I like that they're a little bigger and like you said, it's always nice to be able to blink without your lashes hitting the lens! I have that problem with my sunglasses. I need some new brow powder, so I clicked on the link you provided and I wanted to ask what brand/kind of angled brush you use to apply your e.l.f. brow powder? I think I need to buy that same e.l.f. powder/wax and also the same brush you show. Thanks! :)

Wow, it's pretty amazing with what you can do with your makeup to accentuate the beauty of your eyes! Most people ignore tip two where you brighten the area under your eye, which gets a little darker from the shadows from the glasses. I'm totally going to give these makeup tricks a try after I get my new eyeglasses! I can't wait to see how good I look after I try all of your fabulous ideas to make your eyes pop under those eyeglasses. Thanks so much!
