What I Used:

eye brows: MAC Brow Pencil in Fling
eye lashes: MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara
lips: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square
I recently got contacts, but until about 6 months ago I wore glasses every day of my life. I know people usually make the switch from glasses to contacts around age 15, but somehow I missed the boat and so just decided to stick with what I knew. Oh man, you should have seen me when I went in for my first contacts fitting. The doctor was explaining how to get them in and I was all, “I’m a makeup artist, I’m suuuper comfortable with eyes, I got this…” Fast forward to me 20 minutes later, still trying to get the first contact in, nearly on the verge of tears. I have since become better at getting contacts in, but I still like to wear my glasses.
For my eyes, I lightly lined them with brown pencil and applied a lot of mascara.
My main focus was on the lips. I love statement lips with glasses because it creates a stand-out “look.” I applied NARS Red Square, a red lip pencil with an orange base. Orange-reds are bit more light, young and casual than deep, blue-reds, but that’s not to say there isn’t a place for those deep reds, too.
If you are a glasses wearer, try defining your eyebrow as a way to make your eyes stand out behind your frames. Be careful not to over fill your brows, though, because ultimately you want them to look natural. Use short hair-like strokes with an eyebrow pencil and keep your pressure light so the pigment isn’t too dark.
