Eye Makeup for Glasses

Eyes can get lost behind glasses. They can look washed out or eye makeup can look too bold. 

There are a few things you can do with your makeup to enhance your eyes, give you a younger look, help eyes stand out and look beautiful while you are wearing your glasses.

Eye Makeup Tips When you Wear Glasses

Wear the Right Eye Shadow Color

Start with a little color. Neutral shadows have been the rage for the past couple years but I find a bit of eye shadow with color can add a brightness and help eyes pop behind glasses.

Nothing crazy like bright blue. Some nice combos are

pink and plum 

peach and olive green
mauve and charcoal
pale gray and denim blue


Eye shadow with a soft shimmer also adds light and brightness. Avoid those old fashioned heavily frosted eye shadows. Here are a couple palette with some good colors along with Amazon Affiliate links to do some shopping.

The Too Faced Chocolate Bons Bons Palette gives you a nice selection of colors to work with.

I also like the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. It has some great peachy shades to add brightness.

Keep the shadow on the eyelids and a little in the crease. Don't take it up to the brow bone.

Define with Eye Liner

Line your eyes with a dark brown, plum, charcoal, black or even navy blue liner. Use a pencil liner. It's the easiest type of eyeliner to create a soft natural looking line. Make the line on the top a little thick and the line on the bottom thin.

Accentuate Your Lashes

Curl your lashes. Curling makes the lashes look longer and gives your eyes a lift.

Add two coats of black mascara on top lashes. Use a lengthen formula to make them look a little longer. Add one light coat to the bottom lashes. 

The black mascara make the whites of your eyes look brighter and intensifies your eye color.

Groom your Brows

Don't forget about your brows! Clean up stray hairs for a clean look. Give the brows a fuller bolder look by filling them in with a brow powder.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for good...surgery. It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
