A Makeup Guide For Contact Lens Wearers
- Put in your lenses before applying makeup. This will prevent oily makeup residue from getting on the lenses, as well as allow you to see better while applying the makeup. Remove lenses before using makeup remover and washing your face!
- If you use hair spray, however, try to spray it before putting in the contact lenses.
- Use only water-soluble products to remove eye makeup.
- Avoid dusty products such as loose powder. If you absolutely need it, at least close your eyes while applying it.
- Don't use glitter makeup near the eyes. Small metal particles might flake off and get into your eyes.
- Don't apply eyeliner on the ridge between your eyelashes and the eye; keep it further away from the eye. Try to avoid eyeliners that contain loose particles.
- Avoid mascaras that add volume, thickness, and length to eyelashes. They contain fibers that can flake off and get into the eyes, causing pain. Use a water-resistant mascara rather than a fully waterproof one. Many brands have mascaras designed especially for contact lens wearers.
- Replace mascara frequently. Mascara that has been used for a long time may become a nest of bacteria.
- To avoid spreading bacteria, don't share eye makeup with others.
- Don't use oily or creamy products right next to the eyes.
- Many dogs and cats have cataracts. A German technology makes vision correction possible for animals using an interocular lens.
