Women all around the world use makeup to achieve their signature look or to enhance their features. But if you wear glasses your eye makeup hides under it. Therefore, women with glasses usually tend to wear contact lenses to make their eyes look more beautiful and their eye makeup more prominent. But applying makeup and wearing lenses at the same time can affect your eyes. NO, NO, we are not going to suggest you drop any of these. But we have compiled a list of tips that can help you avoid irritating eyes while wearing both of them at the same time.
Clean Make-up Tools
Whether you apply eye makeup with your finger or brushes both of them must be clean. But if you are a makeup freak and lazy women at the same time may be you will find difficulty in keeping your makeup implements clean. But not cleaning them can be one of the reasons for irritating eyes. Therefore, it is recommended to keep your makeup brushes clean because they have makeup, dirt and bacteria build-in them and using it to your eyes means transferring it to your eyes.
Tip: Clean your makeup brushes with warm water with mild baby shampoo or makeup removing solutions.
Be Careful With Your Waterline
The closest thing to your eyeball is your waterline. It is not recommended for a contact lenses wearer to apply any sort of make to your waterline because when you are wearing lenses your eyes needs to stay moist otherwise your eyes will be in discomfort. If you tight line your waterline with a liner the thick consistency of it blocks oil producing eye gland that will result in dried eyes. In addition to this your lenses will become filmy and oily. But if you still want to put makeup on waterline make sure you always use freshly sharped pencil to save your eyes from any bacteria build in your kohl’s tip, keep application minimum and use disposable contact lenses.
Use Cream Eye Shadows Instead of Powder
Well eyes are catchiest feature of your face and beautiful eye makeup can turn heads around. Colors add live to anything similarly application of eye shadow makes your eyes beautiful. Whether you are contact lenses wearer or not, playing with powder eye shadow is never been an easy task. Powder eyeshadows are flaky and gets on your cheeks and at times in your eyes. Therefore, I will recommend you using a creamy eyeshadow because they have thick and creamy consistencies.
Use Cosmetics That Are Designed Specifically For Contact Lens Wearers
Makeup that we use daily is filled with chemicals and not all of them will suit your skin or eyes. Therefore, whenever you are buying makeup always look for makeups that are friendlier for your eyes. Try to use a makeup product which does not contain nylon or rayon fibers because they can flake off in your eyes. Other than this buy makeup that are non-fragrant. Moreover, makeup products labelled as hypoallergenic, non-cosmogenic are products specially designed for avoiding any issues regarding eyes while wearing makeup.

Everything that present s in this world has some expiry date. Whether you wear lenses or not, using expired makeup can cause irritation, redness, sites or even allergy to your eyes. The ingredients in expired makeup become toxin and can harm your eyes. Moreover, try to buy eye makeup in small packages because every time you open your makeup items bacteria and dirt gets into it and when you are applying it you are transferring them to your eyes. Therefore, if you will buy small packages you can use it completely or can replace it in a shorter time period.
Hope these tips would help you next time you are going to wear lenses and makeup at the same time.
