Top Tips For Safe Makeup Use

apply-makeupWhen applying our makeup we don’t always think about safety. But believe it or not, there are a few simple rules that you should follow when it comes to your makeup. They will keep you safe and healthy at the same time.

Sometimes we are in a hurry and need to get out of the door fast. Taking your makeup along with you for the ride is fine but you should avoid putting it on while on the move. This will help you to avoid poking yourself in the eye and causing serious injury. You should also avoid sharing your makeup.

Two of the most important pieces of makeup not to share are your eyeliner and mascara. Not only could you be sharing your makeup, but germs and bacteria as well.

Your makeup has an expiration date just as everything else. Get rid of your mascara after six months and get a new one. It is also important to replace your cosmetic brushes as well. When applying your eyeliner, do not use it on the inside of your eyes. If you apply it on the wet areas of your eyelids, it can cause dry eyes from the glands getting blocked.

If you wear contact lenses it is best to put them in before you apply your makeup. This will help you to avoid mixing them with old makeup and causing infection. You will also have less of a chance for makeup to get under your lenses. And last but not least, be sure to visit your optometrist on a regular basis. They will be able to spot any type of infection that may be lurking in the shadows.

By following these simply rules, you will be able to help prevent infection to your eyes. Although makeup can make us look and feel beautiful, we would regret it if something should happen. Prevention is the key to keeping your eyes healthy and beautiful at all times. Simply replacing old makeup and not sharing can take you a long way down a healthy road.
