Tips While Applying Eye Makeup
For women who use contact lenses, special care has to be given while using makeup. In this section, we deal with this aspect of contact lenses usage.
Before actually discussing how to use it, let us consider what kind of makeup to buy. There are two important things to be considered while selecting face makeup for contact lens users. These are ingredients and consistency. All makeup should be what is called "hypoallergenic" and should preferably have statement somewhere on the packing that it is safe for contact lens users to wear. The consistency should be such that spreading of loose powder and fibers should be minimized.
General Face Area
If you apply powders like rouge or face powder, avoid using loose powder - pressed powder should be used instead. You can also use a foundation powder cum face powder to reduce the risk of getting particles in the eyes. You can also minimize this by avoiding the areas around the eyes.
Applying Eye Makeup
While applying eye makeup, waterproof mascara or eyeliner should be preferred. During the day the eyes tend to dry out so a few drops of solution may be required to keep the contact lenses lubricated. Waterproof eye makeup will withstand the moisture which results from this.
Using Hair Products
It is a lesser known fact that the hair products can have an adverse effect on the eyes of contact lens users. Especially if you have long hair, it is likely to blow in the eyes in the course of the day. Avoid using sticky or highly perfumed products as the chances of chemical contamination are more. If you must use hair spray, close your eyes during application.
