Working at home. [May. 27th, 2009|01:08 pm]

The secret to my eye not watering? Seems to be staying inside entirely and not wearing any eye makeup. *blush*

Yes, it's true. My use of makeup has upset my eyes. I'm going to have to *ACK* go to work without mascara and eyeliner tomorrow. How sad! People are going to ask me all day if I'm tired and I'll tell them, no, I'm just a natural redhead and therefore have clear eyelashes.

What brand(s) of eye makeup do you use? Any recent changes?

Yes! I just started trying the Double Extends by Loreal and before that I was using Lash Exact by Cover Girl.

Sounds like there's something in it that's irritating your eye!

So it wouldn't be a horrible thing to go without. I've seen you without and you look damn good au naturale.

It's just delightful to have it not watering today after so many days of the ouch.

I know, eye itchies are the WORST! My allergies have been bad this season so I have to be extra careful on the makeup. It sounds like you may have gotten a bad product though (in the sense that the new ingredients didn't agree with you). Going back to the trusted and true is a good idea. *hugs*

Oh yeah -- any of those mascaras that have that primer kill me. It adds little fibers to the lashes that fall off into my eyes.

Maybe switch to Almay for a couple days -- Almay is designed for sensitive eyes.

Ooh. I didn't realize I'd be risking my silly sensitive eyes. I forget that as a redhead I come with annoyingly sensitive skin and eyes by default. I envy those who can take all cosmetics without their body protesting.

You have solved the mystery of my acid eyes. I had some of that mascara and the longer I wore it for the day, the more my eyes burned. It got so bad I had to pull the car over and let my mom drive. I'm not a natural red head but sensitive skin I have. I can't even use the Biore black head patches because it makes my skin harden and peel.
