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.

Warm weather is bound to be on the horizon, which will have us daydreaming about lounging by the pool with a good book (or tablet). To enhance your outdoor reading we’ve compiled a list of gadgets that will turn your poolside reading time into a backyard oasis.

Reading Sunglasses

Reading Sunglasses

Reading sunglasses are exactly what they seem: sunglasses that have a reading glasses prescription. There are two main kinds of reading sunglasses: bifocal sunglasses and full sun readers. The tinted, sun reader lenses are perfect for outdoor use.

 

Wide Brimmed Hat

Wide brimmed hat

You’ve got your stylish reading sunglasses, now all you need is a wide brimmed hat. A wide brimmed hat will not only keep the sun off your face, but will give you proper shade so there is no need to squint while reading.

 

Umbrella Halogen Heater

Umbrella Halogen Heater

Have you ever wanted to read outside on a starry, summer night but it’s just a little too chilly? An umbrella halogen heater attaches to standard umbrella poles making it easy to enjoy a summer night with a good book.

 

Everyday Innovations Bookmarker

bookmarker

This simple accessory is perfect for the avid notetaker. The Bookmarker is a replaceable pen and bookmark rolled into one, with 100 sticky notes for marking off pages and a strap for holding your book shut as well.

 

Anti-Glare Screen Protector

Screen Protector

For the reader who has gone electronic, an anti-glare screen protector is just what you need for your device. Tablets are great for indoor reading, but once they are taken into the sun, text can become obstructed by glare and finger smudges. To boost the clarity of your device and cut down on glare, definitely consider an anti-glare screen protector.

Computer Readers 2

We rarely look anywhere that there isn’t a screen glaring back at us. According to the Vision Council more than two thirds of us suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS.) Staring at screens for any length of time can cause fatigue, headaches, dry or red eyes, blurred vision, and even eye twitches. All of these symptoms are associated with CVS. Because screens are here to stay, it is important to look out for your overworked eyes. One way to alleviate your eyes and lessen the effects of CVS is to consider a pair of computer reading glasses. Computer readers are designed to optimize your eyesight when you’re looking at digital screens. Here are just a few reasons computer reading glasses are effective:

 

1. Reducing glare

We’ve all experienced the point in our day when our eyes begin to feel strained and our vision begins to blur. These obstacles make focusing on your work nearly impossible. Computer reading glasses feature a special coating and yellow/melanin tints designed to keep fatiguing screen glare at a minimum.

2. Keeping you focused

A good pair of computer reading glasses can help keep you focused in the zone. When shopping for your computer power you must remember that as long as your device is over 18 inches away you’ll want to shop for half of the power  of what you need for your reading glasses, since your computer screen is typically farther than a book would be. For dual powered computer readers you would still shop by your reading magnification because they automatically adjust for your computer strength.  

3. Perfecting your posture

It is common to catch ourselves leaning forward in our chairs to try to compensate for less than perfect mid-range vision. This type of poor posture leads to neck pain and also makes for an uncomfortable day. If this sounds familiar, a pair of computer readers may definitely be worth a try.   

4. Getting the most out of your glasses

Do you wear one pair of reading glasses everyday for work, reading, and hobbies? You might find that these “trusty” glasses that you’ve relied on for so long are not great for long term computer use. If you find your eyes more fatigued than usual and you are experiencing neck or back pain, a pair of computer readers that you keep at the office or on your coffee table may be just the solution.

Eyewear has majorly advanced since the 13th century, but blurry vision is not a new phenomenon. Since eye glasses did not come on the scene until late in the 13th century, people had to come up with creative solutions. Between 1000 and 1250 AD, reading stones were discovered spherical magnifying glasses you could lay over your manuscript to enlarge letters as you read. In ancient Rome, the emperor Nero would hold a polished emerald in front of his eyes to reduce the sun’s glare while he watched gladiators fight. Roman philosopher Seneca was known to use water-filled objects as a means to magnify text for studying and reading as early as 4 B.C.

Reading Stone

Fast-forward to 1286 when Italian monks developed the first visual aid. The glasses were made of two framed glass or crystal stones, and were held up to the eyes using a handle. By the end of the 14th century, thousands of eyeglasses were being exported to all of Europe. Florence, Italy became a leader in production, sale and innovation of eyeglasses in the mid-1400s. After the realization that vision slowly declines with age, glass makers in the area began to create eyeglasses in various strengths. Eyeglasses were graded with strengths progressing for every five years of age.

Italian monks 1

In 1665 The London Press delivered the first newspaper, sparking a demand for eyeglasses. It was around this time that people who wore glasses were viewed as intelligent and of high status. Eyewear began to evolve once again when France introduced the “pince-nez” (translation: “to pinch the nose.) These spectacles are known for their uncomfortable design as they were made of wire or horn, sometimes leather, and sat at the bridge of the nose without temples. It was Teddy Roosevelt who is tributed for making the pince-nez a popular style in the United States.

Pince-Nez

The round lens look continued to be the style choice through the 1920s and 1930s but were made from sturdier metal and celluloid. To enhance the look of these metal glasses new materials were introduced: real silver, 12k-gold plating, and tortoise shell. Tortoise shell became a very popular material due to its detailed markings, but was also considered uncomfortable since it was a heavier material.

'30s round

As men and women began to desire more variety in their eyewear, trends in lenses shifted to the browline and cat eye styles in the 1940s and 1950s. These new styles combined both metal and plastic. It was common to see plastic at the top of the lens. This look became so popular that after World War II it was noted that the browline and cat eye styles made up 50 percent of eyewear sales. This decade was also the beginning of bold colors and decorations being incorporated into glasses.

'40s cat eye

John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Jackie Kennedy, and Elton John were a few of the people who influenced the looks in eyewear during the 1960s and 1970s. During this decade oversized, bug-eyed glasses were all the rage. The oversized white plastic frames became the signature look throughout the 1960s, as well as round colorful lenses, influenced by the hippie styles.

Jackie Kennedy

The 1980s saw a comeback in vintage clothes and accessories which also translated into trends in eyewear. Popular styles during this decade consisted of rhinestone bedazzled cat-eye glasses, Rockabilly metal frames form the ‘50s, and unique mod shaped frames from the ‘60s. Transitioning from the ‘80s to the ‘90s, styles in eyewear took a 180 degree turn by moving towards simple black shades and sporty shapes with a minimal/serious look.

Rockabilly

Glasses in the 21st century reflect many of the styles seen throughout previous decades. Eyewear in the 2000s do not lean towards one signature look, but instead caters to personal style. As fashion magazines are no longer the major influencer in fashion that they once were, street style has become a key influencer in trends today. Social media, bloggers, and photographers are a few of the top influencers driving trends in the 21st century. Name brand designers are putting more money towards their eyewear lines resulting in glasses making regular appearances on the red carpet. Glasses now have their own space in the fashion world as they have become a desirable accessory.

Reading glasses serve many purposes. They are great for fine print, browsing the web, cooking new recipes, and completing daily tasks. However, when it comes to applying makeup, many women would say they rely on magnified vanity mirrors versus reading glasses. This is understandable since standard reading glasses can get in the way.  While vanity mirrors are a great option for applying makeup at home, what about when you’re traveling or at the office? We suggest opting for a pair of makeup reading glasses. Yes, you read that right, glasses specifically designed for applying makeup!

 

How to use makeup readers

When shopping for makeup reading glasses you will come across a few different designs. A common design for a pair of makeup readers is a frame with a swiveling lens allowing you to see clearly while you apply your makeup. When using this design simply swivel the lens to the eye you are not working on while you apply makeup to the opposite eye.  Another design is a set of frames with flip-down lenses. This design allows you to flip down the lens that is in front of the eye you are working on so you can see perfectly out of the opposite eye until you are ready to switch eyes. Like traditional reading glasses, makeup readers are designed to fit your lifestyle and eliminate struggle. So as you begin your search for the perfect pair of makeup readers it is important to find frames that you are comfortable using.

 

Types of makeup readers

The Carrie Makeup Reader

The Carrie Makeup Reader The Carrie 2

The Carrie Makeup Reader is designed to allow you to use your reading magnification while simultaneously applying makeup in a 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.


The Magnolia Makeup Reader

Magnolia Makeup Reader  The Magnolia 2

To have perfect vision while applying makeup in the mirror check out The Magnolia Makeup ReaderThis lightweight reader has flip-down lenses so you can switch your application from each eye with ease. No mascara mistakes here!

Both The Carrie Makeup Reader and The Magnolia Makeup Reader will enhance your beauty routine in no time! You may even find yourself storing multiple pairs around your house, office, purse, and car. No judgement here! For expert tips on wearing makeup with glasses click here.

 

Determining your power

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.
