Here are some tips to help you wear your contact lenses and your cosmetics safely and comfortably together:

  • Put on soft contact lenses before applying makeup.

  • Put on rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses after makeup is applied.

  • Avoid lash-extending mascara, which has fibres that can irritate the eyes, and waterproof mascara, which cannot be easily removed with water and may stain soft contact lenses.

  • Remove lenses before removing makeup.

  • Choose an oil-free moisturizer.

  • Don't use hand creams or lotions before handling your lenses. They can leave a film on your lenses.

  • Use hairspray before putting on your contact lenses. If you use hairspray while you are wearing your lenses, close your eyes during spraying and for a few seconds afterwards.

  • Blink your eyes frequently while under a hair drier or blower to keep your eyes from getting too dry.

  • Keep false eyelash cement, nail polish and remover, perfume and cologne away from the lenses. They can damage the plastic.

  • Choose water-based, hypo-allergenic liquid foundations. Cream makeup may leave a film on your lenses.
