You can apply makeup with confidence no matter your vision. But you may need some tips and tricks to make it easier for you to do. So … let’s get going.
Here are a few tips that are pretty simple but can make a big difference: First, keep liquid foundation in the refrigerator to make it easier to feel on your face.
Next, use a headband to keep your hair away from your face while you’re putting on your makeup.
And, if you’ve got low vision, use a lighted magnifying mirror.
For liquid foundation, first choose how you want to apply it. Use whichever is more comfortable, your fingers, a brush, or a cosmetic sponge.
Now, place the foundation on your finger, brush, or sponge. Dab a small amount on your nose, chin, forehead, and both cheeks.
Using circular strokes, start from your chin and move the foundation out toward the edges of your face—gradually moving up until you reach your hairline.
