The eye area is one of the most delicate parts of the body — yet we often give it the biggest beating. We crunch our lashes with eyelash curlers, we stipple layers of shadow on our lids and line our waterline to achieve the perfect smoky eye, we rub our eyes vigorously when tired and attack the eye area with makeup remover each night. All of that is enough to irritate anyone’s eyes, but especially those with sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers who require a gentler touch.
If you fall into the above categories, you know that just a smidgen of the wrong eyeshadow or mascara can make eyes water, itch and burn. If you’re frequently experiencing this when you apply your makeup, you should stop using those products immediately — you don’t want to mess around with the delicate eye area.
Contact lens wearers and those with easily irritated eyes need products that are specifically formulated for sensitive eyes. Thankfully, you don’t have to choose between wearing the latest makeup trends and having eyes that don’t sting. There are many products suitable for sensitive eyes that are ophthalmologist tested. So, toss away anything that is upsetting your eyes and take a look at these products your eyes will love.
