I think it’s pretty obvious that SMA affects a lot of my day-to-day life – it forces me to be creative, and come up with different ways of doing things. And sometimes it’s taking things and using them in a way that has an extra benefit to me – like the things I talk about in my Accidentally Adaptive series. So I thought I’d share some of my current favorite “adaptive” products – things that I use to make my life a little bit easier.
This week, I wanted to share some recommendations for good disability representation on screen. When I say good representation, I mean that the stories told aren’t cliche stories of disabled people as burdens, or as someone to be pitied, AND that the actors playing these characters are disabled themselves. This list isn’t exhaustive, but the full version of that list wouldn’t be that long, either. We still have a looong way to go until disabled people really feel represented on screen.
I am not necessarily the most skilled at doing my own makeup, but it is something I enjoy doing. It’s fun to play around with new products and shades, and try out different looks. It’s one of the few steps of the getting ready process that I can still do mostly independently, but I’ve had to come up with little hacks and workarounds to make it work for me and my mobility. One of the products I’ve found that makes it a little easier for me is my Artis foundation brush.
