Women who have to wear glasses might feel as though it hides or detracts from their beauty. That does not have to be the case. Selecting a fashionable pair of glasses that suit your face can improve your looks. It is true that you may have to make some adjustments in order to play up facial features, so use a few helpful beauty tips for girls who wear glasses.

A valuable beauty tip for girls who wear glasses is to define the eyes. It is hard to make your eyes pop while wearing glasses. The answer is not to pile on heavy make-up. Instead, use make-up and tools to open up the eyes. Line the top eyelid with liquid eyeliner. Black or brown eyeliner is the most universally flattering. Apply a thin line and wing it out slightly at the end. Another way to show off the eyes is to curl your eyelashes. Add two coats of a lengthening mascara to eyelashes.


If you're feeling less than sexy with your spectacles, try a sassy, sultry hairstyle. A hairstyle that is half-up and half down is flattering for girls who wear glasses. Wear the hair long and loose, and sweep the top part back and secure it loosely at the crown of the head. This part should start about 1 inch above the ears. Pull out some tendrils of hair to frame the face. For short hair, wear a side-parted, retro bob. This is perfect if you happen to have cat-eye frames on your glasses.


Girls who wear glasses must pay attention to grooming eyebrows. This is crucial, as glasses emphasise them. When you first get your brows done, visit a professional to get them waxed, threaded or tweezed. It is possible to maintain them yourself at home by frequently tweezing them. Once you have them properly tamed, apply brow powder or pencil to fill them in well. Use a brow pencil or powder that matches the colour of your brows exactly, or is just a touch darker than your eyebrow hair.

Rosy Cheeks and Lips

Create a rosy glow with make-up in shades of pink. As glasses generally end just at the top of the cheekbones, highlight them with blush. Apply a rosy pink shade of blush just below the cheekbones. For pale skin, stick with lighter pink. Darker skin can use a deeper shade of pink blush. Finish the look with a swipe of glossy, pink lip gloss to the lips.
