How to Wear Makeup with Your Frames

Wearing glasses can often lead you to feel hidden behind the frames. But it doesn’t have to feel that way; you don’t need to shy away from dressing up your face and your eyes. If anything, glasses can help up your makeup game. Here’s how:
In addition to framing your face, glasses draw attention to your brows, so shaping and defining your eyebrows is a must. Applying some brow gel and brushing your brows upward and outward will do the trick. Using a brow powder or pencil to fill in where required is a bonus to making your brows look fierce.
You want your eyes to pop behind your frames; hence, opening them up with a mascara that is big on thickening your natural lashes is a go-to. Don’t go for extreme elongating mascaras or falsies as they can keep hitting your glasses; focus on volume. Curling the lashes before the application will do wonders to beautify your eyes. We also recommend going with a smudge-proof mascara, so it doesn't rub off on your lenses.
Bonus tip: The right place to focus on while applying the mascara is the root of your lashes – not the tips.
Glasses tend to magnify dark circles by adding a shadow onto them. Gently tap on a brightening concealer and dust with a setting powder on the nose pads to finish off the process. Setting powder is a must, especially on areas where the glasses touch the skin to prevent the foundation from rubbing off. Go easy on the foundation and blot away any excess foundation paying particular attention to your cheeks and the bridge of your nose where your glasses sit.
Favor eyeliner over eyeshadow. Play around with different designs (from cat eyeliners to box liners) and colors to make your eyes stand out behind the frames. The reason we're telling you to ditch the eyeshadow for eyeliner is that too much eyeshadow will look heavy. Go minimalistic, especially in the brow bone area. But if you must opt for eyeshadow, pick light shades.
Pro Tip: Since you can’t wear your glasses while you’re applying makeup on your face and your eyes, use a magnifying mirror or a small hand mirror to apply your makeup.
Don’t leave your lips behind. Take your pick from ruby reds, naughty nudes, or pretty pinks in matte or glossy textures, and pucker up for the perfect selfie!
Remember, these makeup tips change depending on your eyeglasses. Choose a makeup look that suits your frames and your face. So, have fun and experiment with your makeup, and see what works best for you.

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.
David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.
David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.
He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.
His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.
David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.
And that’s when it hit him!
