Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure generally performed while the patient is conscious. You can usually resume your regular daily activities within 24 hours of the surgery, though the exact time varies from case to case. You can also wear some forms of make-up immediately after surgery. You must wait 2 weeks for eye make-up, however.

- Foundation brush
- Eyeshadow applicator
Apply powder foundation as soon as you are comfortable wearing make-up after surgery. There is no medical reason to wait to apply powder. Use your foundation brush to spread the foundation on your entire face. Do not apply the powder to your eyelids.
Apply lipstick as soon as you are comfortable after your surgery, as well. You can also wear blush immediately after cataract surgery. For applying blush, sweep the brush from your cheekbones toward your hairline, keeping the powder away from your ocular bone.
Apply eyeshadow, mascara, or eyeliner 2 weeks after your surgery. Dip your eyeshadow applicator into the powder and gently sweep the colour across your lid. Apply one coat of mascara and do not apply eyeshadow to your waterline.
Resume your regular make-up routine 1 month after surgery.
