Eye Makeup Tip For Blind & VI Women

Practice Makes Perfect

Among other things, some of my duties involve curating and imparting a little wisdom that will benefit my blind and visually impaired followers. In the makeup realm, I come across a number of questions specifically around eye makeup application. The answer to the following question was so genius I had to share it here with you:

Q: Do you have any makeup tips (mostly eye makeup)?

I’m blind in one eye, so the usual “close one eye while you do it and look with the other” doesn’t work for me, as I’m sure is a similar case for some or all of you. ~J. Stephenson

A: You could try doing a little, taking a close up selfie of that eyelid shut,

…assessing and going a bit more, continuing with the pics in between to see if you’re on track toward the look you’re going for? Eventually, the practice should lead to being able to do it without stopping and without checking! ~S. Seyringer

One final note: It’s important to remember that in the beginning, most people struggle with makeup application and it’s only through trial and error that we become more proficient at this form of art. Loosen up, have fun, and practice until you are comfortable. You will reach your goal!

Have a great weekend everyone!
