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

Heat Therapy to treat dry eyes

Dry Eye Syndrome is the most frequently diagnosed ophthalmic condition, we spoke about it in this post.
The normal ageing process brings changes to the meibomian gland function and tear composition resulting in painful, gritty and irritating dry eye.
Effective eyelid warming is the primary treatment for MGD.
The MGDRx® EyeBag® was developed in 2004 by British consultant ophthalmologist Mr Teifi James after 15 years experience of treating patients with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
The MGDRx® EyeBag®, a reusable warm compress, which heats quickly and conveniently in a microwave, has been registered as a class 1 medical device with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) since 2005. Teifi James was granted a patent for his invention in 2009.
Improving the quality of life for dry eye patients, the MGDRx® EyeBag® has been purchased by over 500,000 users and in a recent survey, more than 90% found the EyeBag® to be better than a hot wet flannel and would recommend the product to a friend or relative.

Edited by the brand’s creative director Frida Giannini, ‘Gucci: The Making Of’ book will release October 2011, along with the opening of the Gucci museum in Florence.

“An unprecedented publication showcasing Gucci as never before, including thought-provoking essays, commentaries, and authoritative anecdotes along with previously unpublished contemporary and archival photographs. Published in conjunction with the opening of the new Gucci Museum in Florence, Gucci is the ultimate celebration of the world-renowned fashion house. Told through a loose grouping of words, concepts, shapes, and moods, the book tells its story through new conceptual forms and the free links between images, symbols, and objects. Conceived by fashion curator Maria Luisa Frisa and W magazine editor in chief Stefano Tonchi, this comprehensive volume showcases the genius of the fashion house through an exclusive lens with inside looks into the inspirations behind the design.

This gorgeous book designed by Arnell offers an in-depth look into Gucci’s origins, identity, influence, and innovation, including fabrication methods and appropriation of signature materials, past and present, and its influence among high society and Hollywood. Featuring contributions by Lynn Hirschberg, Judith Clark, Katie Grand, Peter Arnell, Maria Luisa Frisa, and a wide variety of additional important commentators, the book is a heartfelt and personalized tribute to the heritage and influence of this iconic, multifaceted brand.”
