Cosmetics and contact lenses
Whilst you can carry on using eye make up when wearing contact lenses, you may wish to be aware of the following guidelines.
First, insert your contact lenses and then apply make up.
Lenses should be removed before removing make up.
Fast-drying fibre free mascara is advisable.
Eye-colour pencil should not be applied directly on the edge of your lower eyelid- better to apply on edge of lower eyelash.
Eye shadow in cream form/compact powder has been shown to be the best type for lens wearers.
Liquid eyeliner can lead to some tinting of soft contact lenses.
Use a rich eye make up remover for removal of eye make up.
Be careful not to allow hand creams, sun lotions and nail polish remover to come into direct contact with the lenses.
