Do yours start to water at the very thought of lining your waterline, or can your eyes handle everything — glitters, loose pigments and All. The. Colors?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I used to fall into the latter category, but not so much anymore. Up until about a year ago (don’t ask me why this has changed because I don’t know), I could wear almost anything on my eyes, and I’d be fine. Occasionally, a purple shadow or liner would make my left eye tear a little, but that was the extent of the drama.
Now, though? Totally different story. Around the the last time my skin changed (as it tends to do every few years for me, it seems), the skin around my eyes and my lids also got much drier. My lids, lash lines and inner corners are picker than they used to be, especially my water lines. I can only tolerate certain liners now, and I’m hesitant to stray beyond my eye comfort zone, lest I end up in Weepy City.
Purple and orange shadows are usually the worst offenders for me, as are glitters and shimmers (and, strangely, my left eye). At least for the time being, I can still wear most mascara and liquid liners, but we’ll see how long that lasts!
What’s the situation with your peepers? Are they super sensitive or totally chill? Are some colors, products or brands more irritating for you than others?
