It can be tricky to apply eye make-up when your eyesight is challenging, but it is possible!
‘The first investment should be a good quality magnifying mirror.
‘Then, try pulling your glasses to the very end of your nose, tilt your head back, raise your brows and look into a mirror that preferably you can tilt – this will allow you to see your eyelid through your lenses and at the same time giving you enough space to apply shadow, liner or mascara.’
Make Your Eyes Pop

How should you apply your mascara to avoid getting it all over the lenses?
‘When applying your mascara, opt for a formula that is longwearing, so it won’t smudge on to your lenses if your lashes do touch them throughout the day. Additionally, a good curl will prevent this. Be sure to give your mascara time to dry before positioning your glasses for everyday wear.’

‘Bobbi Brown’s Instant Full Cover Concealer, £23, and Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Sticks, £23, are fantastic for applying over any areas on the nose that may have been made a little red by your glasses.
‘You can apply before wearing your glasses but keep them in your bag for touch ups, if necessary.’

‘To avoid your glasses casting shadow under your eyes and making your eyes look sunken, use a corrector and concealer a shade lighter than your foundation to significantly brighten your under eye. This will eliminate that shadow effect.’
