Teen Beauty Vlogger Won't Let Blindness Keep Her From Flawlessly Doing Her Makeup

Despite losing her eyesight about two years ago, Lucy Edwards has mastered her daily beauty routine -- no mirror required.

Lucy, 19, lost sight in her right eye when she was 11, BuzzFeed reports. She lost it in her left eye when she was 17. With her sister's support, she was able to come up with a regimen so she could do her makeup without seeing her reflection.

The inspiring beauty vlogger shares her makeup tips on her YouTube channel called YesterdaysWishes. There, her viewers can learn about her favorite products and her special techniques.

"I have my basic routine that I do now when I’m at college," she told BuzzFeed. "If I feel like I’m having a more spotty day, then I add concealer. If I want to contour, I could do that."

Makeup isn’t necessarily something Lucy thinks she needs. For her, it goes a bit deeper.

"Because I’m making myself pretty, it makes me feel better about myself on the inside," she said. "I know the media has a lot of rubbish about whether you need makeup and so on -- I don’t think I need it especially, but it’s just a thing that makes me feel good about myself. It makes me feel like I’m in control."

Aside from beauty videos, Lucy offers her viewers more information on what it means to be blind. In the past, she’s offered tips for people who are blind or visually impaired and recently explained cataracts as part of her “What Is” series. Lucy said she’s happy to be a resource for such a community.

"The YouTube community for blind beauty bloggers is small," she said. "When I was plunged into blindness, there were no resources for this kind of thing [beauty], and it took me hours and hours to learn how to do my makeup."

Thanks to her and her awesome videos, others won’t have to do the same.
