Every woman does her make-up differently so this is an example that may inspire you to think about how you manage make-up. A piece of non-slip shelf liner on the dresser stops eye shadow and face powder from sliding when I open the container and use the brush. I did not know age would rob my lips of the pink color that keeps them from being the same color as my face. It is easy to apply lip gloss with a hint of color because I do not have to draw a precise outline like I do with lipstick. The gloss wears off quickly, but leaves a slight tint on my lips that lasts for hours.
Now I see lips on the bottom half of my face when I look in the mirror.
Applying eye liner requires the ability to close one eye while you keep the other open. I can only blink (close both eyes at once). I apply eye shadow by keeping both lids half closed, but this does not work for eye liner. Instead I use mascara to give my eyes more definition. My hemiplegic hand can squeeze tubular shaped objects between my index and middle finger so my sound hand can open the mascara. At first I got mascara on my eyelid or face. I wipe off the excess by rolling the brush on a kleenex sitting on non-slip shelf liner before I apply mascara.
My balance is not good enough for me to lean over to get close to the bathroom mirror. I use a mirror on my bedroom dresser with clear Dycem under it to keep it from moving. Leaning my sound elbow on the edge of my tall dresser gives me good control when applying eye make-up. Years ago I attached fluorescent lights to the sides of the mirror hanging over my dresser. If you buy a lighted make-up mirror read the reviews first. A food container keeps make-up organized so it does not spread out on my dresser. A small round container holds vertical objects upright like mascara. The round container does not fall over because it is clipped to my square container with a small metal binder clip (see white circle) I got at a office supply store. I love using everyday objects instead of spending money on expensive equipment in medical catalogues
