Ask the Expert: Contacts and Mascara

Q. I wear contact lenses and have trouble finding mascara that doesn't irritate my eyes. What type of mascara would you recommend for sensitive eyes?

A. When you wear lenses, your eyes can water or react to contact solutions, according to Robin Gaines, makeup artist for Oil of Olay Color Collection. This tends to promote rubbing or wiping, which can break down even the long-wearing formulas of regular mascara. Waterproof mascara is a better bet. It guarantees that your mascara stays put until you decide to remove it. Look for a waterproof formula that's gentle yet effective enough to give you the lush-looking lashes you love.
