When it comes to wearing makeup with glasses, things can get tricky. Should you wear lashes? How about eyeliner or eyeshadow?

Personally, I think you can do whatever you want. However, I feel most confident when my makeup is really clean and simple when I have glasses on. Lashes included. The shape of my eyes is something I really pay attention to when I have glasses on and wearing lashes helps accentuate the shape. If I don't want to deal with the hassle of putting on lashes, at the minimum I wear a lengthening mascara. (Even a little flick of liquid liner vs a full cat eye can make eye pop when wearing specs.)

When I'm wearing glasses, I take it as an opportunity to wear lipsticks that I love and draw attention to my lips as well. We opted for a mauvey pinkish hue (Milani's Amore Lip Creme in Loved) that made my lips stand out while staying fairly neutral.

Of course, glowy skin is my usual preference when it comes to makeup. Here we used Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. (I'm a huge fan of Topaz - sold out at Sephora - as well.)

And there you have it. My tips on staying beat when you're having a "I'm gonna wear my glasses" day.
