What comes first? Contact lenses or makeup?

Do you know the situation when you want to put on an entire look but you are not sure where to start?

  • Should you avoid getting makeup on the lenses and put them last so they are protected from any dust and mascara?
  • Or should you put first the lenses so you won't have to try to insert the lenses without smearing your makeup?

The answer is simple and is not only valid for cosmetic contact lenses. 

You should always put in the contact lenses first and then apply makeup. Your blinking reflex is so strong that you might get makeup automatically on the lens while inserting them. Furthermore, it is much easier to hold they eye open when you don't have any eye makeup applied yet.

Please also be careful not to get any moisturizer or any form of fat on the lens!
