Get a new or fresh pair for your D-Day!
Though your MUA must be getting a pair for you, we would suggest you buy a good pair for your wedding. On the other hand, if you wear them daily or get every few weeks, but still you need to get a fresh pair to stay away from even the smallest of the discomfort that can happen on your wedding day.
Put your contacts before getting started with makeup
Your MUA must be aware of this rule, as this is a very important thing to follow for your wedding day. This is important as any snafus that come along putting on contacts needs to be avoided.
Lens Solution will be your bae
Weddings are filled with so many emotional moments and it will be a long day which will make it a bit difficult if you are wearing contacts. Your lenses may get dried up in that period of time. But, don’t get tempted to using the water or saliva to moisten them. As they may be a little uncomfortable for you or even lead to an eye infection. You really need to keep a miniature contact solution or eye drops with you or you could even ask your bridesmaids or family member to keep it handy.
A little extra care
Lenses are not easy to handle for everyone and as it is your wedding day, you really need to be extra careful. Firstly, while putting the liquid in the eye, don’t get heavy-handed as it may risk gushes of the solution running down your face which could ruin your makeup. This is indeed a scary thought, but you could ask your MUA to help you out or even let them do it for you!
Carry an extra pair
If you are avid contact wearer, then you must be aware of the discomfort caused by damaged lenses. There can be anything unfavourable caused while putting them on and you want to be stuck with them on the wedding day especially when you are wearing numbered lenses. Therefore, don’t forget to get an extra set in your emergency day-of kit. Also, carry your glasses, if nothing helps, at least you won’t be missing anything special!
