Sufferers of ocular rosacea often have a hard time finding eye make-up that does not irritate the eyes and skin. For many people eye make-up just isn’t an option. Here are a few suggestions for eye make-up that may work for you. Before applying any products to your eyes, put a bit of the product on your finger and hold it close to your eye. If your eyes are irritated just from that little bit of exposure then you know it’s not right for you.
Concealer for Ocular Rosacea: It’s easy to find a concealer that will cover, but finding a concealer that won’t agitate your ocular rosacea is a little tougher. SkinStore.com recommends Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Concealer.
Eye Shadow: Mineral make-up like Stila Eye Shadow is great for those with ocular rosacea. Mineral make-up is a good option because its all natural, free of preservatives, and has sun blocking properties. With just a little bit of mineral make-up you can create either a soft or dramatic affect to your skin.
Mascara: First off, don’t choose a mascara that boasts thickening or lengthening of your lashes. The ingredients in those products will definitely hurt your eyes as will those with any kind of fragrance or form fillers. After that it’s just a matter of testing a few mascaras designed for sensitive eyes. I recommend Colorescience Mascara – Cry Me A River.
