These are a few of my favorite things………

When you become a “woman of a certain age,” one of life’s greatest dilemmas is created by the ever-present reading glasses that seem to be permanently perched at the bottom of your nose.   You need glasses to do anything that requires that you to see up close – that includes putting on makeup.

That, my friends, is the problem. You need the glasses, to apply your eye makeup, but if you take them off, you risk putting your eye out with the eyeliner pen.  Either you forego wearing eye makeup (not an option) or you could easily end up looking like you let a toddler do your face. Well, when I think of it, you don’t even have to be a woman of a certain age to have this problem – you need only be a girl who wears glasses!

This is where the flip lens makeup glasses come to the rescue. Whoever thought of this is a genius! One side flips up, allowing you access to your eye, while the other side stays down, allowing you the benefit of seeing your other eye through the magnifying lens. So simple, yet so AMAZING! Why didn’t I think of this?

Flip up Makeup GlassesI was gifted with a pair by a dear friend several years ago. I resisted using them until my teenage daughters made it clear that I might want to be a bit more precise in applying my eyeliner (If only they had worded it so nicely.) Now my makeup glasses have a prominent place on my makeup stand – and they get used daily. I can now leave the house with precisely applied eyeliner – to the best of my ability.  So don’t blame your bad eyesight for your poorly applied makeup. These glasses solve that problem for you.
