Where ELSE should makeup NOT be applied?
To prevent poking yourself in the eye with an applicator, NEVER apply makeup while you are in a moving vehicle.
What should contact lens wearers know about makeup?
Consider switching to daily disposable contacts to avoid product and debris buildup. Steer clear of oil-based eye makeup removers. “They can make lenses blurry and uncomfortable because the oils will lay on the surface of tears. So, when you wake up in the morning, residue will attach to the contacts when you put them in,” explained Dr. Resnick. Be sure to rub your contact lenses gently but thoroughly before storing them (even if your solution says no-rub) to get rid of any makeup that might be lingering.
What are some general tips for makeup?
Sharpen pencil eyeliners before each use for a clean, fresh surface. Opt for powder eye shadows–creamy textures tend to hold more bacteria. Don’t let uncovered liners roll around in your purse! Keep the caps on tight. Of course, replace your mascara and eyeliner every three months.
At night, remove all eye makeup, especially mascara that can stick to the lashes. Use a clean cotton swab to brush along the base of the eyelashes to get the last resistant debris of eye makeup off. If you use an eye makeup remover, be sure not to get any in your eye. When you are done, rinse the remover off your eyelids completely to avoid possible irritation of the eye or lids.
