Contact lenses are a fantastic innovation that many people who are tired of wearing glasses will agree. The contact user must be used to wearing them and must know how to take care of them on a regular basis.
The care and precaution of wearing contact lenses may differ when it comes to wearing makeup in conjunction with lenses.
In this article we will share with you some simple but important tips when you want to put makeup with contact lenses.
First of all, you should always remember to insert your contact first before applying any makeup. Make sure your hands and face are clean and dry before inserting your lens.
By putting your lens on first, you will avoid hand cream, lotion, soaps, or any other makeup residue on your hands. This residue will adhere to your contact lens and can cause eye irritation.
Avoid using oil-free and fragrance-free cosmetics because they are difficult to remove from fingers and skin; Instead, we suggest that you choose a light face cream or moisturizer. Using thick creams or moisturizers around the eyes could melt and stain the lenses.
When applying powder, apply it carefully and make sure you have removed excess powder around the eyes. We suggest you use liquid gel eye creams and eyeshadows, as small dust particles can fall into the eye and cause irritation. Use a sponge instead of a brush.
Choose waterproof mascara without alcohol. Apply your mascara lightly and make sure it doesn’t touch the base of your lashes. Always let the first coat dry before applying the second. Avoid lash lengthening mascara, which has fibers that can irritate the eyes.
When applying eyeliner, we suggest that you use a soft, waterproof eyeliner instead of liquid. Apply your eyeliner carefully and avoid touching the inner edge of your eye as this will stain the lens.
If you need to wear your contact lenses when using the hair dryer, try to blink frequently to prevent your eyes from drying out.
If hairspray is required, always use it first before contacting. If this is not possible, close your eyes while spraying, open them a few seconds later, or ask for help with this process.
Last but not least, always remove your contact lenses before removing make-up at night. Again make sure your hands are clean and dry before removing it. We will suggest a water-based makeup remover and apply it with a pad.
Hope you find the above information and trust that you will enjoy makeup with bright and beautiful eyes!
