Makeup might not have any rules, but when it comes to makeup and contact lenses, there’s one very, very important one: Safety first. No one wants to be the origin of an urban legend about the girl who went blind because of dirty contacts and excessive eye makeup. On a recent trip to visit Dr. Arti Shah, an LA-based optometrist and contact lens specialist, she was appalled at the amount of makeup build-up on our reusable contact lenses. In fact, she refused to give them back to us and threw them out on the spot. And here we thought everything was hunky dory with our eye health.
