Suddenly Sightless | Blind Beauty 58
“Suddenly Sightless – a creative insight into our sight loss”~Alex & Laura
Lately, it seems like there’s an explosion of people coming together in the blind and visually impaired community to change perceptions and I love it! Take Alexandra Lucas and Laura Greeves for example. The two women share a common bond of a love of beauty and both are also losing their eyesight.
Becoming fast friends, Alex and Laura created a podcast where they share makeup tips and reviews. Their easy, friendly and laid-back style is refreshing and informative.
Laura and I started this podcast shortly after meeting and hitting it off. We had loads in common and naturally bounced off each other. Both of us felt that there wasn’t much support for sight-impaired people our age (mid-20s). So we decided to create a fun, informal yet supportive and creative outlet where we could help others in our situation and other relevant issues. Since then we’ve been thick as thieves and it’s been such a fantastic journey!
