Makeup Update II: The Red Menace

In this case, the Red Menace is allergies! Or possibly Peg Bundy.  No, it’s probably allergies.  They turn my eyes all red and burny, which is no good~

This is literally what my hair looks like today, thanks humidity!

So it’s officially Fall in Chicagoland (disclaimer, I don’t know if it’s actually Fall, but it’s cool today, yay) and I think I finally have the eye makeup situation under control.  Long story short, I had to scrap everything I was using and find stuff that doesn’t upset my eyes.

I talked to my eye doctor, and she gave me eyedrops, which have worked really well.  I would recommend giving those a shot for anyone having similar troubles, to start with.  I also tried out every “sensative formula” “opthamologist tested” mascara on the market.  Yep, that one too.  And I have found a couple that work.

Physicians Formula Organic Jumbo Lash is allright.  But it smudges, and is a pain to remove.

What I’m really liking right now is the new mascara from Origins.  The GinZing stuff.  I’d heard it talked up, and I decided to take it for a test drive.  It doesn’t upset my eyes, and looks the most natural of anything I tried.  Downside, it does flake a bit.  But all in all, it’s my new favorite.

Ahhhh, burny eyes begone!
