6 Pro Makeup Tips for Glasses Wearers Over 50

After 50, create a natural makeup look to match your style of glasses

As you grow older, you may notice that your go-to makeup essentials don't light up your face like they used to. Don't worry, that's normal and something most of us experience as we turn 50 or older.

Your styles and interests evolve with age, and so must your makeup techniques. For example, you may want your makeup to complement your eyewear.

Makeup should empower you and make you feel more comfortable in your skin.

In this guide, we'll give you some easy, practical tips on how to apply your makeup to enhance your features.

1. It’s all about balance

Your eye makeup should complement the appearance of your frames. Darker eye makeup with a thicker frame may overpower your face. Go for more delicate styles that can complement a bolder eye look.

If you have chunky or bright frames, try to keep your eye makeup light. Stick to one or two layers of soft-black mascara instead of the complicated approach.

Do you have thin, rimless, or light-colored glasses? You can amp up your eye makeup with an extra layer of mascara and creamy eyeshadow.

2. Go easy on the eyeliner

If you have nearsightedness, prescription lenses will make your eyes appear smaller. So it's essential to choose your eye makeup wisely.

Skip the liner to get a more natural look. Consider using cream eyeshadows that are neutral or darker than the eye area.

Apply light touches of color above where they meet on top lashes close together at one corner. Then go back across again – not too far down to create an "hourglass" shape between both sides.

3. Curl your lashes in half

When it comes to your lashes, everyone wants them long and thick. But if you wear glasses or have nearsightedness, they may brush against the lens. Especially when you are blinking, which can be super annoying.

The solution? Curl up those natural lashes upward. It will create a nice separation instead of length and offer some more opening space in front where there was none previously.

4. Rake your brows upward

Your brows can help you frame your face. Your ideal brows should be visible above all eyewear. Always comb your brow hairs up, and fill from the bottom to top with pencil and/or powder.

Use a really precise eyebrow pencil if your brow hair is light and sparse. And remember, the darkest black lenses can look a little funny when worn with light brown or blonde hair.

5. Flaunt your blush

Blush can spice up even the most basic of looks. When used correctly, it adds color, dimension, and highlight!

When wearing thick frames, apply blush in three places, around each ear, above the brows at temple level, and on the bridge of your nose. Remember, a little goes a long way here!

6. Add some shimmer

If your eyes get lost behind your glasses, there's a simple solution: add some shimmer. A sheeny, creamy eyeshadow will help to draw light to your eyes, making them appear more open and awake.

When applying shadow, use a small brush to apply it above your lash line. This will assist in creating the illusion of larger eyes without appearing overdone.

This simple trick will instantly brighten your eyes. Ideal for days when you need a little extra energy, this is one of our favorite tricks.

Your makeup should make you feel confident about yourself. Tie up your whole makeup with frames to look and feel your best. These tips will help you do all that and more! At Vicci™ Eyewear, we want you to feel confident with eyewear that complements your natural glow.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

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 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!

VICCI EYEWEAR was born in 2012.

When you're at a dinner date, wedding, or any event, the first thing people notice is your face. And it's an injustice to wear ugly glasses that don't match your whole look.

Vicci™ believes in the beauty of older women, and we want them to feel good about themselves. We want our customers to feel confident in their glasses. They’re not just something they need to wear because they have to—your Vicci is a fashion statement that can be worn with pride!
