This Girl's Makeup Tutorial Videos Are Going Viral For The Best Reason
May 22, 2015
It looks like a normal makeup tutorial, but she's inspiring people all around the world.
Lucy Edwards is blind. Not partially blind - completely blind.
The 19 year-old lost vision in her right eye at 11, and her left at 17 due to a rare condition called incontinentia pigmenti.
When asked why she puts on makeup, she said:
"Because I'm making myself pretty, it makes me feel better about myself on the inside. I know the media has a lot of rubbish about whether you need make-up 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.
And that's the thing about being blind. You are very dependent on other people. and make-up for me, personally, means that I don't have to ask anyone about how my face looks any more. Because I know I've put my foundation on a certain way, and I've built up my routine so I know my cleansing routine and all that. I know that my face looks good without looking in the mirror. So I don't have to ask someone, 'Do I look good today?', because I know that I do."
It's always amazing and inspiring to see someone beat the odds and limitations! Watch her most popular video below:
