Finding the best makeup mirror for visually impaired people can be challenging. There are so many different things to consider! Some of these factors include magnification, lighting, and size. In this article we will cover what you need to know when buying a makeup mirror for poor eyesight and give suggestions on where to find the perfect one for your needs.

How do you know if a makeup mirror will work well for someone with poor eyesight

There are a lot of things to consider when picking out the best makeup mirror for visually impaired people. One consideration is magnification. Some mirrors may have no magnification at all, while others can be as much as three times more magnified than regular sized ones! When looking for your perfect makeup mirror you must take into account that some reflections might not show up on smaller or less powerful mirrors. This could make it difficult to see any detail work in areas like eyes and lips which require precision and care.

You may also want to consider putting your makeup mirror next to a window so that sunlight can go through it. This will give you more light so that you can use the mirror easier.

If all of these are true, then this is a great makeup mirror for people who have poor eyesight.

Tips for applying makeup for visually impaired people

Use your fingertips

Use your fingertips to explore the shape of your face and lips. Doing this will give you a better understanding for how you should apply your makeup.

Use a wipe

Always keep a packet of wipes where you do your makeup. This will make it easy for you to clean your hands and limit the possibility that you’ll get makeup on your clothes or areas of your face you don’t want it.

Use a cape or a towel

When applying your makeup, wear a makeup cape (or even a towel) to make sure that you don’t get any on your clothes.
