(Only because some people are touchy about repeating sounds, but your proposal is grammatically correct, and avoids the ambiguity that I introduced by removing the second "te": even when the sentence could mean that the glasses make your friend see well, the context will clarify that you mean they make him/her look good.)
Esos anteojos/lentes te hacen lucir bien. (More educated vocabulary.)
Esos anteojos/lentes hacen que te veas bien.
I know you wanted to work with "hacer", but just for the sake of daily speech, a Mexican would probably rather say: "Esos lentes te quedan bien".
