Essential Make Up Glasses

The Birth of the Essential Makeup Glasses

Hi, my name is Queenie and I am very new to this type of bloggy thing!! I just want to share the reasons behind these Makeup Glasses.

Glasses Wearer

So, I wear Glasses. I never needed Glasses until I was at the awesome age of 50ish, I am hairdresser by trade and beautician and have always enjoyed mucking with hair and makeup. Suddenly, I was putting my brows on and thought that the room was a little dim, so I turned the light on. But no, it did not help and there were other tell-tale signs such as having to set my phone 1 block away so I could see it. Well off to the optometrists I went and Yes, I received my first set of glasses.


I was excited thought I looked so much more intelligent LOL. Well that excitement faded as wearing glasses has its pitfalls when wanting to look decent (in the makeup department.


I got quite frustrated with trying to do the basics, Put my glasses up and down. I bought a few Magnifying mirrors which are pretty good, but if I was on vacation with family I was left to feeling my way around, I would ask my husband does my makeup look ok etc and of course he would reply Yep. Mmmmm Really!!!


Then I found these little beauties, they have really helped me to know with confidence that I am on track (in the face department). I can pop them into my Makeup Up bag and take them with me on all my travels.

Word of Advice

Just a word of advice when choosing the glasses please ensure you get a stronger strength than your glasses so you will have a magnified view of your eyes. For my glasses would be similar to a +2.00 so I use the +300.

 Also, when switching the lens from one eye to the other give your eyes a chance to re-focus. Then continue to finish off your makeup.


Thank you so much for your trust in my store.
