Q. Hi Alison, over the past few years my eyesight has deteriorated so that I need glasses for reading and close-up tasks. This is affecting putting on make-up as I need to remove my glasses to put on eye make-up, but my eyesight without glasses is not good enough to see properly! I do not want to wear contact lenses (squeamish) so do you have any tips or ideas for applying make-up with blurry eyesight, especially mascara? Thanks in anticipation, Susanne.
A. I'd definitely recommend a great free-standing magnifying mirror that myself, Julia and Alison Keenan cannot live without. It makes a massive difference especially when putting on your eye liner – they are a Godsend.
