Who else here wears glasses? I really like makeup but get discouraged from purchasing what I really want *coughCSPallettecough* because I do all this work to blend three colors together and then put on glasses and no one even sees it. I'm considering getting contacts for the summer just so I can play around in makeup more. Any tips?

Thanks to the links from YLQ i've kinda figured out what works for me. Concealer is a MUST. I never realized how dark my under eye circles appear with my glasses on. I'm still struggling with my brows though. I find that shimmer eyeshadow really comes through the lens.

I wear glasses as well and I feel the same way. I love to expirememtn with different eye shadows and colours but then I have to put on my glasses and no body really sees it...I bought contacts but I only wear them when I go out..klike clubbing, parties etc...

yeah im in the same boat  as you slayfresh.
 
i wear glasses as well, and it sucks that ive been practicing alot of different looks only for it to disappear when i put on my glasses.... arghhhhh.......
 
 im getting contacts in the summer too, for some versatility.
 
 
 But i don't always want to wear contacts when wearing eyeshadow, so i  want to find some looks that can pair well with glasses, as well. 
 
thanks for those links ylq... bout to check them out now.

I wear glasses...I should wear them all the time, but I don't...I only wear them for working at the computer, reading and driving at night and I wear makeup EVERY day unless I'm not leaving the front door...you can see my makeup very good with my glasses...I do have the ones that have the no glare in the lens...in fact, people ask me do I have lenses in my glasses...they are just that clear. I might pop back in with a pic for yall later in the week.

I couldn't afford the anti reflective coating this time around with glasses since I had no insurance and it sucks. seems like concealer is very important which I JUST got. also looking for some mineral foundation right now, I think I will order a sampler from earthen glow.

I wear glasses . . . sometimes, lol . . . and it can be frustrating to spend all of that time dolling up my eyes then having them covered up by my glasses, lol.
