If you love makeup, but struggle with hand tremors, you know how difficult applying it can be. Shaky hands and applying makeup don’t go well together but there are some things that can make it easier.

Applying Eye Makeup

Eye makeup is probably the trickiest category to apply when your hands are shaking. You don’t want to get mascara in your eyes or smudge your eyeliner, right? The required precision can mostly be achieved with steady hands. Practice can help a lot, but there are some helpful techniques that do wonders once you master them.

Makeup Station

When you have shaky hands, a proper place where you can apply makeup can mean the world. You need a table on which you can rest your hands, a mirror that doesn’t require you to hold it, and good lighting.

Product Order

It’s also a good idea to apply the problematic products first. For example, if you mess up the eyeliner and want to remove it to start over, it’s good if you haven’t already applied the foundation. This will remove some of the stress and make applying makeup a more relaxed activity.
