How can I put make-up on with sight loss?

We have produced a factsheet wtih tips and techniques on how to apply make-up if you've lost your sight:

We wrote it with kind permission from the American Foundation for the Blind, and it's based on information from the Personal Self-Care section of their Vision Aware website.

Additionally we have a number of podcasts with blind fashion blogger Emily Davison, which can be found on the Connect Radio website. There is a specific podcast on tips for applying make up for visually impaired people that can be accessed here.

We also sell a number of products which can help, including magnifying mirrors and task lights. Please see the Home and Lighting sections of our online shop for more details.
