Hi, I'm Dr. Matheson Harris, an ocular facial plastic surgeon and ophthalmologist in Salt Lake City, Utah. Wearing eye makeup can sometimes cause allergies and eye irritation. Following a few simple tips can help you to have a more comfortable experience with eye makeup and avoid these common problems. First of all you want to never share makeup with anyone else. If you ever go to a store to try on eye makeup, you want to use a fresh sample with a fresh applicator that hasn't been contaminated. Before applying eye makeup, clean your eyelids and face. You want to avoid applying eye makeup below the eyelashes, so always steer for above the eyelashes on the upper eyelid and below the eyelashes on the lower lid. Never apply eye makeup while driving. If you develop an allergy to your makeup, stop them all and reintroduce them one at a time to determine which is the causing factor. Avoid homemade cosmetics with untested chemicals. People with dry eyes should avoid glitter or metallic types of eyelid makeup. This can flake off and get into the tear film causing additional eye irritation. This is especially important in contact lens wearers. At night remove all makeup, especially mascara, which can stick to the eyelashes. Keep makeup remover out of the eyes as it can cause additional eye irritation. If you have additional questions about makeup and your eye health, contact an ophthalmologist in your area.
