Alternatives to sunglasses?

In football and baseball people wear black lines under their eyes, across their cheekbones. This is to help block the sun, yes? And kohl does the same thing but is applied to the eyelid. Would ordinary eyeshadow and thick eyeliner work as well?
I've been wondering if it matters where the dark is applied in relation to the eye. I mean, it's a lot lower on the face for the sports makeup than kohl. Is the important thing for the dark colour to be below the eye? Where do you think the sun would shine to cause the most trouble?
What about non-prescription dark contacts, anyone here ever use them instead of sunglasses?

In a nutshell: anyone have any knowledge or experience with reducing the glare of the sun by using cosmetics?
