Make-Up Tips For Contact Lens Wearers
Ladies, your make-up doesn't have to be a hindrance to your contact lens wear. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy wearing contact lenses without sacrificing your style!
Avoid hair sprays and spray deodorant, as particles can easily get into your eyes. If you do use these products, remember that the spray lingers in the air so keep your eyes protected for a short period of time afterward.
Choose cream eye shadows because they do not create particle fallout like powdered shadows.
Never apply eyeliner to the inner eyelid margins as it can cause pore blockage. Soft crayon-type pencil liners are less likely to cause flaking than liquids.
Remove your contact lenses before using any type of make-up remover around the eyes, including soap and water.
Carefully select make-up remover. A water-based product will help avoid the accumulation of grease around the eyes and do an excellent job of thoroughly removing water-based mascara.
Listed below some of the more popular manufacturers and their products, which are contact lens compatible. Additionally, be sure to ask your cosmetics retailer (Such as Merle Norman or Sephora) which products work best for contact lens wearers.
