    1. Try magnifying glasses with just one lens so you can see out of one eye while you apply makeup to the other.

    They have 2.5x magnification, and there's just one lens you can flip from one eye to the other so it doesn't get in the way of your eyeliner, shadow, or mascara!

    Get them from Amazon for $10.95.

    2. Use short, travel-sized brushes so you can get closer to the mirror during application (AKA you can see way better).

    Hello near-sighted bbs, this tip is for you!

    Get this set of four mini brushes from Sephora for $20. The set includes a crease brush, all-over shadow brush, smudge brush, liner brush, and a pouch to store 'em all in!

    3. Keep your concealer from getting all over your nose pads and causing your glasses to slip — just rub your hands together (it generates heat and will cause your concealer to thin out) and pat the concealer in. Then immediately set with powder and head out the door. Look mom, no slipping!
