I have been watching Youtube makeup tutorials for a while and I really enjoy them, but they are not for me. What I mean is, I see titles like:
Makeup for glasses
Get ready with me in the dark
And I kinda cringe.
You see, I have registered as partially sighted (visually impaired) and have achromatopsia (rare color deficiency). I cannot relate.
When you cannot see well, makeup tutorials for people who wear glasses cannot be intricate coz well…. you cannot see. It is as simple as that!
I filmed a Get Ready With Me video and showed how I do my makeup.When I watched it I thought to myself,
Who will watch this amateur GRWM?
But then I thought,
this IS my reality.
And the reality of many, like me. So, I shared.
My focus is on the base (foundation). At the moment, I am using the Clinique Beyond Perfection foundation (I like it). I also choose a bold (ish) lip colour (I 😍 Clinique Pop).
My eyes usually have one colour on them. I usually use an eye shadow stick because they are easier to control and harder to mess up.
I use primers and setting sprays to hold the look together.
I do not really do smokey eyes or wings or yada, yada, yada.
Oh! And if someone is around, I ask them to check my makeup. See if everything is looking OK because I cannot seeeeeee.
You see, for me, putting on my makeup in the dark is kinda like a reality, NOT a fun YouTube click bait idea idea. So, if you are in the same boat as me, check out my video and maybe give me some tips. I will be back with more Get Ready With Me videos coz I need to be more descriptive.
This is the video
Let me know what you think.
