Putting on makeup as a blind person

So earlier today I posted pics of myself with my makeup all done.

I did that makeup myself. I’ve never done that before. Every time I wear makeup I always get someone else to put it on for me.

For christmas my sister gave me really good makeup. It was an expensive brand. One she uses and one she’s used on me before as well.

Today I decided to try it out and I decided I’d do it myself. Its not easy being blind and applying makeup. I got my sister to sit with me while I attempted to apply it. I wanted her to tell me what I had to do to get it right.

It turned out nice. Of course my mom and sister did laugh a few times, because I was doing it wrong. I had to tell them to quit it as it was making me feel bad. They said though when I got done and was finished that I did good.

Even my 11 year old niece said, for a person who cant see what they are doing, you did well. That meant so much to me.

I am going to practice putting the make up on for a few days, and then if I keep getting it right, I will wear a little every day. Just a little foundation, powder and blush and maybe a little eye shadow as well. I’m not able to apply the lipstick too good by myself, so I think for now I’ll just use lip gloss.

I’m happy with how it all turned out. I’m happy too that I’ve got good makeup now that I can wear daily if I choose to do that.

  1. Good for you, I am not good at putting makeup on at all. I have gotten better but still not thrilled about wearing it because it takes me so long to get it on. I take it off and redo it so much. Sometimes i give up because my face is red from wiping it off so much. What sucks is one side I will get done good but then the other I mess up.
