- Clean your makeup brushes regularly
- Do not share your eye makeup
- Opt for cream eyeshadows
- Replace your mascaras every 3 months
Clean your makeup brushes regularly
The best way to avoid eye sensitivity from flaring up is to regularly clean your makeup brushes. Take good care of your brushes and store them in clean, hygienic containers. Wash your brushes at least once a week as dirt tends to accumulate with every use and when these dirty brushes come in contact with your eyes, it might lead to infections and irritate your eyes further.
Do not share your eye makeup
Yes, she may be your BFF, but sharing your eye makeup with anyone is a big no-no. Also, avoid applying tester makeup products at the counter as you have no clue as to who might have touched and used those products. Always ask the person at the counter to clean the palette and tools before trying anything on.
Opt for cream eyeshadows
Powder eyeshadows tend to fall out and irritate the eyes, hence, cream eyeshadows are your best best. Also, try and avoid using glittery and shimmery products as they can enter your eyes and further irritate them.
Replace your mascaras every 3 months
Most people tend to hold on to their beloved mascaras for longer than they should. However, using an expired product will not only irritate your eye but can also give you a serious eye infection. If you use mascara on a regular basis, it’s best to replace it every 3 months. If you don’t use a mascara frequently, keep a close watch on its performance, once it starts drying out and flaking, it’s time to toss it out.
