 “I’d like to know the best way to apply eye shadow when wearing glasses”

Nola Jones

Nola, I am so glad you asked this question! I have a lot of trouble myself applying eye make-up and seeing to do a lot of things!

The best advice is to invest in a good magnifying mirror. Then you will be able to take your glasses off to apply your eye make-up.

Something else to try is a pair of flip down glasses. There are lots of different types to try!

Another tip when you are applying your makeup is to make sure your lighting is not too bright. Natural light is the best. Also look downwards into your mirror to get the best angle of your whole eyelid.

I hope this has been helpful for you Nola!

  1. I got myself some flip down glasses and soon discovered that I had wasted my money, they were useless. Went back to my magnifying mirror.
