I was layering sunscreen with make-up, but it was so thick, I’d go out in hot weather and feel like I was wearing a T-shirt on my face,” Paxson said.

Specialty Contacts: A Cautionary Tale
So, you’ve got your cat tail, ears and whiskers all ready for your feline Halloween costume, but the face make-up is missing something. If you’re thinking of completing your costume with cat contacts, there are some safety issues you should keep in mind.

Consumers and make-up artists need to be cautious of lenses found in retail outlets or on the Internet. Often the retailers aren’t licensed to carry the special effects lenses and the contacts may not be manufactured to the correct standards. According to ophthalmologist Dr. Jonathan Gording, special effects lenses often have two layers: the inner white layer is basically a salt, he says, and a dye is applied to the outer layer for the desired effect. These hand-made lenses are fragile and need to be inspected for nicks, edge defects or other deformities.
