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.

Christmas gift from a friend!

Our friend Ray sent us a christmas gift! We got it just now. The post woman brought it after 7 PM! She said due to it being black friday there was lots of parcels being delivered and that is why she was delivering it so late in the evening!

We had fun opening it! It was makeup! Lipsticks, and lip liners! Thank you Ray! I love makeup. We dont have a lot of lipsticks and lip liners so it will be nice to have some new ones.

We are going to wear some of the lipstick next week going to the friendly call christmas party! I cant wait to try it out!

Its fun to get presents in the mail! Thanks again RAy! You made our day!

Carol anne asks…

Do you wear makeup?
🙂
My answer, I do occasionally, but not every day.

I wear it when I am going out. For special occasions. On nights out mom or my sister will do my makeup. I’ve never gotten it done professionally. Have you?

I like wearing it, but I hate when I have to come in from a night out and wash it all off, its so time consuming.

How about you? Do you wear it?
