If you are a woman who has just started wearing prescription eyeglasses for the first time, bear in mind that lenses that correct for nearsightedness tend to make eyes seem smaller. With this in mind, you may want to make some adjustments to your makeup regimen.

To better help your eyes stand out from behind the frames, try filling in your brows with a pencil or powder that matches your hair color. Next, choose an eye shadow that will contrast with the color of your frames. Conversely, since farsighted lenses magnify the eyes, you may want to apply eyeliner with a light hand, staying close to the lash line and avoiding clumps that would be even more noticeable.

Women whose vision is very blurry without their glasses should inquire about “make-up glasses.” which allow wearers to fold each of the lenses away individually. As a result, one eye can see very well while make-up is applied to the other one.
