Just rediscovering makeup following almost 4 years of not being able to wear any. I lost the sight in my left eye poor sight started to fail to my right. Following successful op to right eye new glasses and able to try a contact lense so wanting to feel a bit like 'me' again.

I'm not able to wear any eye makeup at all, so thinking lipgloss/tinted moisturiser tried some last night Clinique cc lovely light coverage what I'm after but I was still a bit shiny. I used primer, do I need a powder?

I also have some bare minerals stuff I like which was nice coverage but made my skin look 'flat' so do I need blusher/bronzer?

I used both one on each side of my face and was going to post a pic but missed my lips with the lipgloss blush my lack of eyesight knocks my confidence!

Or any other very light coverage products I should be looking for? I'm very out of touch and now 42 want to be able to 'enhance' my skin a bit more than the funny-eyed-lady I've been grin

You could try smash box powder swirled with a large brush then applied. Their finish is made just to look like skin, no special finishes, just natural.

Sounds just what I'm after thank you smile. Do I use that after the tinted moisturiser or by itself?

I'd let the moisturiser sink in for ten minutes then apply. It's quite a light to medium coverage so you won't need much.
Without the moisturiser it won't have much to cling to so it would look a bit patchy or not last as long.
It should give a lovely natural finish!

Excellent, the two nearest Boots branches not that stock it, one is a stones throw from the Eye Hospital so I can nip in their after my follow up to get some smile thank you flowers
