I’m Blind Why Should I Wear Makeup?
“Mary Kay Consultants give a weekly class for free where you can try the products before you buy anything.”~Amy Wilson
I have spent over a year as a Mary Kay Consultant and am often told by my fellow blind community that “I don’t wear makeup and don’t understand why I should.” Well, let me explain from my point of view why makeup. I will break it down into a couple of points.
- First, makeup is supposed to be fun and playful.
- Women for years and years have used makeup to be more playful, like wearing a red lipstick for example. Now we have purples, blues, pinks, and so many more colors. Same for eye and cheek colors. Don’t over think it like I used to.
- Second, makeup is a learning process.
- You will not become an expert overnight; be patient with yourself. I spent years doing the same thing when it came to what makeup I used.
If you’re not comfortable, take a class or talk with a Mary Kay Consultant; maybe me lol. There are assorted videos and training available online and in-person. Mary Kay Consultants give a weekly class for free where you can try the products before you buy anything. Free training by people who are trained by the best although I’m biased. Lol
The Finishing Touch
My biggest point for “why makeup” is the finishing touch. Just like when you wear jewelry, a hat or other accessory—I know I love my purses—you are finishing your look with makeup.
Recently I was volunteering at an event with other women. The first couple of days I had parents coming up to me thinking I was in charge and I thought it was strange. Then I realized my image spoke for itself. I looked more professional and polished than the women who were running the program. This experience taught me that no matter the situation you are in, your finishing touches are important. As blind women, we may not think it matters but I promise you, it does. The world is looking at you whether you want them to or not.
Just remember transformations and learning don’t happen overnight. Life is a work in progress and any woman on the move knows that. Stay fresh and fabulous Bold Blind Beauties!
