  • I sometimes wear my glasses, I always wear make-up. I just put it on like normal and you can usually see it just fine.

  • If you wear glasses you want to wear your eye makeup just a bit darker than if you didn't. Line your eyes a bit thicker or use a darker liner. Curl your eyelashes and put on a nice dark mascara (I really like Lash Blast.. orange tube)

  • I wear glasses and ALWAYS do my eye makeup
    I always experiment with different eye shadows, and liners, and I am thinking about buying this new mascara that covergirl has that has different tints of color in it for your eye color. Just because you have glasses doesnt mean you cant put on pretty makeup

  • I mostly just use black eyeshadow and a liner brush as an eyeliner (lasts a lot longer than pencil liners and I get a finer line) and then some mascara. I have black plastic frames.
