How do I put on eyeliner with poor vision?
Hi, I was hoping you could help me how to do eyeliner for my situation.
I am 54 and have cataracts and glaucoma, so I cannot see well enough to put eyeliner on my lower eyelid.
I know there are a lot of different eyeliner styles and I have seen some women apply eyeshadow instead of eyeliner on the lower lid.
But every time I try I just cannot get it to look right. I was hoping you could tell me how to do this. How do I apply eyeshadow instead of eyeliner on my lower eyelids?
Thank you so much.
------------------------------ Editor's Note:
Thanks so much for your excellent question regarding how to apply eyeliner vs. eyeshadow.
Yes, there are tons of different eyeliner styles and yes I have seen women use just dark eyeshadow as a liner for the lower eyelid. But - like you - I have a hard time getting this work right for me. For some reason it does not look good on me.
I think this technique works best for women with very large eyes. On me - it looks like I slept in my makeup and woke up with it smeared all under my eyes. Looks terrible! :-)
The only eye shadow I can use as a liner for the upper and lower lids is the golden/champagne color eyeliner that I purchased from Mommy Makeup.
