Makeup Tips While Using the Acuvue Oasys

Posted by AmandaTom on December 6th, 2012

 Contact lenses are fashion accessories that have become an indispensable aspect of our lives. These lenses can make a person look gorgeous and sensuous and correct their visual deformities as well. Though the medical values of these lenses cannot be overlooked, many people today are buying these lenses for cosmetic reasons. Irrespective of the reason for your purchase, there are a few things that you need to know before using them. There are certain safety measures that you need to consider while using lenses such as the Acuvue Oasys or Dailies AquaComfort Plus to prevent damage and irritation to the eyes. If you are a person who uses eye makeup regularly, then here are a few tips that can prove to be helpful.

The first tip is to insert the Acuvue Oasys into the eyes before you go ahead with the makeup. A lot of people make the mistake of first applying the elaborate eye makeup and then putting on the lens. This causes a lot of friction and irritation since the fine dust from the makeup enters the eye and irritates the cornea as well as the iris. Inserting the lens before applying makeup will prevent the lenses from coming in contact with the powder, oils and allergens that may be present in the makeup products.

The second tip is to be gentle while applying the eye liner and the eye shadow. Most women end up rubbing their eyes vigorously in an effort to spread the eye shadow. In the process, they end up dislocating the Dailies AquaComfort Plus, thus leading to irritation. If you encounter such as problem, do not open your eyes wide immediately. Instead open them slowly while trying to take out the lens carefully at the same time. Thoroughly wash your hands as well as the lens before re-inserting it. While washing the lens, use a good cleansing solution designed specifically for this purpose to keep damage and irritation to a minimum.

If you use the Acuvue Oasys regularly, then it is recommended that you switch to cream based makeup products, especially for the eyes. The cream based products are unlikely to give rise to finely powdered residue that may enter the eyes and cause discomfort. However, there are certain women who are allergic to cream based makeup products. If you are one of them, then consider opting for water based makeup that is not too harsh. If you are not able to adjust to these products, you can continue with the powdered makeup, but make sure that your eyes are closed while using them.

Remove the Acuvue Oasys lenses or Dailies AquaComfort Plus before you remove any eye makeup. If it is a daily disposable lens you can discard it, but if it is a reusable lens, rinse it well in a cleansing liquid and replace it in the box.
