Can I wear eye make-up if I wear contact lenses?


Yes. In fact many people find it easier to apply their make-up once they start wearing contact lenses because they can see what they're doing!

For hygiene reasons, it's better to insert your lenses before putting make-up on, and take them out before removing make-up.

You might want to avoid powdery and metallic shadows and mascara with fibres in case the particles get into your lenses.

Several brands offer formulas developed for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes.
