“As a woman, there is no better feeling than when hair, makeup, and outfit all come together to create a beautifully cohesive look. As a woman who can no longer see, the feelings are identical. Lack of eyesight does not and should not prevent anyone from feeling and looking their absolute best.” ~Steph McCoy
I wrote the above in a post titled Appreciate The Beauty That Is You where I talk about confidence however the larger issue concerns the inaccurate belief that people who cannot see, can not or do not care about their appearance. So when Zoe Chen directed me to an article written by Cheryl Wilox, Looking Your Best When You Are Visually Impaired, I was thrilled at the opportunity to share Cheryl’s makeup tips for people who are blind or have low vision.
At the end of the article are some cool makeup and skin care resources for people who are blind or have low vision. One example, Dot Skin Care, is an organic skin care line that uses a numerical system in order of application. The attractive packaging is squarish to prevent rolling if a product should accidentally be dropped.
While we still have a way to go to full inclusivity especially in the fashion and beauty industries, slowly some companies are coming around. When you have a moment be sure to check out Looking Your Best When You Are Visually Impaired.
