20 Jul 2015
Beauty secrets, really? As women, we always want to look our best when we step out of the house, no matter whether we are going to the office or out for a cappuccino with a bestie. We tend to dress according to our day and the events happening during the day. We apply makeup to give our facial features a boost enhancing that which we were born with, we might even change up our lip colour when going from a ‘daytime’ look to an ‘evening’ look!
But what if you are unable to do your make up as a result of personal limitations, for instance, bad eyesight. This poses a huge challenge when applying your make up as clearly the glasses get in the way and often lens wearers are all but blind without their contact lenses?
Here are a few handy beauty secrets to make your life a little easier…
1. USE A MAGNIFYING MIRROR
Apply your make up using a magnifying mirror, this will not only help by compensating slightly for your vision but will also give you a better idea of the area you are applying your make up to.
2. CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKE UP
Permanent makeup is a form of a semi-permanent tattoo, this treatment can be applied to the following areas: eyeliner, eyebrows and lip liner.
Permanent makeup is a great solution for those who struggle to draw a straight line, or just plain can’t see without their glasses. After the initial application and touch up sessions you will only need to maintain these areas once a year, making it cost-effective and super practical too.
3. EYELASH EXTENSIONS FOR THE WIN
Although the application of these can tend to be a little time consuming, the results are amazing and make a huge difference to the eyes. Do bear in mind that what you save on makeup you will be investing in a more longterm solution which is worth the outlay.
4. TREAT YOURSELF TO REGULAR SKIN PEELS
Skin peels are great beauty secrets and ideal for refining the pores. They even out skin tone, skin peels have an anti-ageing effect on the skin and leave the surface of the skin soft and smooth. Skin peels can also be tailored to suit your personal requirements and a variety of combined treatments.
If you are lucky enough to have a naturally great complexion you may be able to get away without wearing a foundation, alternatively, you may wish to try a breathable foundation such as Lycogel or Oxygenetix.
5. LET YOUR GLASSES BE YOUR JEWELLERY
Many people tend to fall into the trap of wearing boring old glasses, these days there are such pretty glasses available with diamantes, patterns and trendy designs. Beauty secret: don’t be boring let your glasses be your jewellery. They will distract from your eye area and no will even notice that you have minimal makeup on.
