Contact Lenses are a fantastic innovation that many people who are tired of wear glasses will agreed. Contact user must be accustom to using them and should know how to take care of them at a regular basis.
The care and precaution of wearing contact lenses can differ when it comes to wearing a makeup together with lenses.
In this article we shall share with you some simple but important tips when you want to put on your makeup with contact lenses.
Firstly, you should always remember to insert your contact first before you apply any makeup. Ensure that your hands and face are cleaned and dry before you insert your lens.
By putting your lens first will avoid hand cream, lotion, soaps or any other makeup residue on your hands. This residue will stick to your contact lens and may cause eye irritation.
Avoid using oil-free and unscented cosmetic because they are difficult to remove from your fingers and skin, instead we would suggest to choose a light face cream or moisturizer. Using heavy creams or moisturizers around the eyes could melt and smear the lenses.
When applying powder, apply it with care and make sure you have removed the excess powder around the eyes. We would suggest you use creams and liquid gel eye shadows as tiny powder particles may fall into the eye and cause irritation. Use a sponge instead of a brush
Choose waterproof mascara without alcohol. Apply your mascara lightly and ensure that it does not touch the base of the lashes. Always allow the first coat to dry before applying the second coat. Avoid lash-extending mascara, which has fibers that can irritate the eyes.
When applying eyeliner, we would suggest using waterproof and soft-liner instead of liquid type. Apply your eyeliner with care and avoid touching the inner rim of your eye as this will smear the lens.
If you need to wear your contact lenses when using hair dryer, try to blink frequently to prevent your eyes from getting dry.
If hair spray is required, always use it first before putting your contact. If this is not possible close your eyes while spraying open your eyes a few second later or ask for assistance for this process.
Last but not the least, always removes the contact lenses before removing your makeup in the evening. Again ensure that your hands are cleaned and dry before removing it. We will suggest water based makeup remover and apply it with a pad.
