Yes, that’s right – there are reading glasses designed specifically for applying your makeup with precision! While our eyes may need some help to see as clearly as they once could, our makeup routine shouldn’t have to suffer. The mornings of squinting out of one eye while applying eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara to the other are over!

For days when you’re traveling and can’t lug your magnified vanity mirror with you, or for those of you who don’t have the counter space for another mirror, these makeup readers will change the way you apply make up…for good.     

The Carrie Makeup Reader is designed to allow you to wear your readers with the proper magnification* while simultaneously applying makeup in the mirror. Simply switch the swiveling lens when you need to do the other eye! The lens is fully magnified in powers up to +3.00.

*Determining Your Power for a Makeup Reader

The standard reading distance is 12-18 inches. With this in mind, you should consider how close you typically stand to the mirror when applying your makeup. The further away you stand from the mirror the lower your power should be (using your reading power as a baseline), and the closer you stand to the mirror the higher your power should be. Never purchased reading glasses before? No problem! You can easily find your power by using our PowerFinder.
