As Special Effects Makeup can often be a sticky situation (what with all that liquid latex) here are a few top tips on caring for your lenses: 

  • NEVER exceed the wear duration stated on the packaging of your lenses. Wearing lenses that have passed their expiration date can lead to infections, loss of sight or permanent damage to your vision. 

  • NEVER swap lenses with another person. This can spread bacteria, potentially causing serious eye infections.
  • ALWAYS wash your hands before AND after handling your lenses. This reduces the risk of bacteria spreading.
