I rarely use eye makeup (or indeed any makeup), but I am starting a new job and wearing contact lenses again after many years, and want to know if I need to use a specific eyemake up remover? I would only really be wearing eyeshadow and rarely mascara.

I don’t think you’ll need a specific makeup remover, it depends on your preference. If you’re concerned about getting it on your lenses, I’d take them out before you start. I usually prefer to take off my eye makeup first with micellar water and cotton wool pads (or eco alternatives) just to shift the worst of it before going in with a normal cleanser, or I’ll use a bi-phase make-up remover (the sort with an oily layer, that you have to shake up before using) to remove the more resilient sorts of mascara. Those are oily and can get in your eyes/ onto lenses, but then if it’s the end of the day, I’ll usually take the lenses out before I remove makeup. This cleansing oil is really effective at getting rid of make-up (including mascara) and is also great for the skin.
