We have a confession: Sometimes when we’re in a rush, we prefer wearing glasses to contact lenses. It doesn't just save us time with eyewear, but also on our makeup. Though glasses help bring out the eyes, they also help disguise under-eye circles or imperfect eye makeup. And by throwing on a pair of eye-catching frames with a vibrant lipstick, our face seems instantly more awake and perky in seconds. One of our favorite looks is trendy, bold glasses balanced out with an equally statement-making lipstick. Trust us: We don’t need any excuse for a bright lip, but matching them with frames is so much fun. Here are some of our favorite combos!

Burgundy Lip + Tortoiseshell Glasses

Try something like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Persistent Plum or Molten Caramel for this sultry pairing.

Pink Lip + Cat-Eye Glasses

Have a little fun and try something playful like NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Street Cred or Shocking Pink.

Coral Lip + Classic Black Frames

For this classic look, we love Lancôme Rouge In Love High Potency Lipcolor 6-Hour Wear Featherlight in Sequence of Love or Miss Coquelicot.

Although glasses can disguise the eyes, the brows are not usually hidden by frames. Keep them in tip-top shape with an eyebrow kit, like Lancôme Les Sourcils Definis Brow Expert.
