Dry eye is just becoming a more common condition everyday. MakeUp Tips – Dry Eyes is a post on how to apply makeup without irritating your eyes. This video will show you helpful tips when you have dry eyes and you want to wear makeup. A lot of women deal with dry eyes. It’s hard for people with dry eyes to do eye makeup.

Stay away from powders

Powder can irritate the eyes. Even if you do not put powder in the eye area, it can travel and stick to the eye causing eye irritation. However, if you use a cream right before applying the powder, it will help to keep the eyeshadow powder on by helping it to adhere.

So make sure that your mascara your are using is hypoallergenic and NOT waterproof. Good quality mascara made for sensitive eyes will not flake, causing eye irritation as they will fall in the eyes. When the mascara flakes gets into the tear film, they will certainly cause eye irritation. Do not forget also that you have to change your mascara every 3 months max even if you still product in the bottle. Once you opened it, you throw it after 3 months.

If you think that a particular cosmetic, makeup, mascara or eyeliner is irritating your eyes, stop using it right away and consult your doctor if necessary. Do not go to bed with your makeup, even if you are very tired, take the time to properly remove the cosmetics before going to sleep. While sleeping, mascara can flake and get into your eyes even

if your eyes are closed.

Do not apply eyeliner where the meibomian glands are located since it can block the duct of these glands, causing dry eyes, stye or chalazion. Finally, if you were contact lenses (you should not if you have dry eyes but anyways…) make sure to put them before applying eye makeup.

Make sure that you use good quality eye makeup remover made for sensitive eyes. Even if you use a good mascara and eyeliner made for sensitive eyes but do not use a makeup remover for sensitive eyes, you will get irritation and dryness. Sensitive makeup + Sensitive makeup remover = good choice.

    You should only wear tubal mascara if you have dry eyes. It comes off with warm water, no rubbing with makeup remover necessary. You can gently remove your shadow and eyeliner with The Body Shop camomile gentle eye makeup remover
