How you should apply make-up if you wear contact lenses

If you are a contact lens wearer then you should be extra-careful when applying make-up, here you can find few tips:

..Of course first thing you always must do is to wash and dry your hands thoroughly! (don’t wear lenses with wet hands.. very important!)

  • Always put on contact lenses before applying make-up, this way you will avoid the risk of getting bits in your eyes
  • When using eye-liner try and apply it above your lashes line and not on your inner eyelid
  • Keep your eyes closed when applying powder products
  • Never blow on your make-up brush! That will in fact increase the amount of bacteria which may lead to eye irritation (you should also wash your make-up brushes very often)
  • When applying mascara don’t start from the base of your lashes, start from midpoint towards the tips
  • Don’t use mascara with lash-building fibres because it can damage your lenses
  • Don’t apply make-up if your eyes are irritated or swollen
  • Don’t wear false eyelashes. The lash glue can irritate your eyes
  • Avoid sharing make-up. Eye infections can be easily passed between people

The Future…

Google X reported in The Times Paper and throughout the internet this week

Rumour, and at present that is all that can be said that by the end of this year our smart display seen on Android phones will soon be backlit on special spectacles being prepared by Google. It is believed to be planning this new mobile device, a pair of glasses that will relay all the information of a phone straight to your eyes.

Reports from many gismo internet sites suggest that Google will release the high-tech spectacles by the end of the year. The normal lenses will have screens that sit a few centimetres from a user’s eyes. 
The New York Times has suggested that the mobile glasses will cost between $250 and $600 (£160-£380).

Google declined to comment.

Though the concept sounds outlandish, it is known that the company has created a grand new project dubbed “Google X” at its campus in Mountain View, California.
