If you’ve ever struggled to figure out the best way to wear makeup with glasses, look no further because Jennifer Lopez just showed the perfect look that can just as easily be worn for a night out as it can be worn to the office. Learn all of the tricks for making the most of your eye makeup when wearing glasses with expert tips from makeup artist Lisa Eldridge.
JLo completely switched up her beauty look at the premiere of Rock The Kasbah, by wearing glasses. Her makeup artist Renny Vasquez created the look, which included classic contoured skin that made her cheekbones and jawlines standout alongside her structured cat eye frames, and neutral cheeks and lips. You can apply your base as usual, except around the nose where your glasses sit, “The less foundation you put on that area, the better,” Lisa said of avoiding glasses indents. She recommends covering the rest of your face, then using the excess around the nose to avoid over-applying.
How you execute your eye makeup will largely depend on whether you’re farsighted and your glasses magnify your eyes or nearsighted and your glasses make your eyes appear smaller. Either way, Lisa says to use a light reflective concealer like Clinique Airbrush to counteract the shadow that your glasses can create under your eyes.

For the rest of your eye makeup, Lisa says to make sure you blend your shadow and liner to keep from creating lines that are too severe. She also recommends using a waterproof mascara to keep it from rubbing off on your glasses, always curling your lashes first so they don’t touch the glass. With heavier frames like the ones JLo wore, Lisa says you don’t need to worry as much about filling in your brows since they will be covered, but it’s important to make sure they are well groomed so any stray hairs won’t be magnified by your glasses.
