Beauty tips for contact lens wearers have to begin with clean hands.

We all know how important it is to have clean hands and fingers when we’re handling contacts, as well as our beauty products and tools.

Make sure you keep your beauty tools like eye shadow brushes and powder brushes clean also, to prevent breakouts or infection.

The next makeup tip for contact lens wearers is to pop in your contacts.

Most beauty experts will recommend that you insert your contacts before applying any makeup.

It’s easier to keep your contacts clean and free of any makeup, as well as avoid any makeup smears if you apply your contacts before anything else.2

It’s also a good idea to take your contacts out before you remove your makeup.

3. Play It Safe

A really obvious but necessary eye makeup tip for ladies wearing contacts is to use contact lens-safe beauty products.

Using eye makeup that is suitable for contact lenses will help you avoid any irritation and infection, plus it’s much safer for your eyes.

Look for hypoallergenic and oil-free products when you’re shopping for makeup.

4. Don’t Ride the Line
