How to Wear Eye Makeup When Suffering From Blepharitis

Updated November 21, 2016

Suffering from blepharitis is frustrating. The constant affliction of itchy, flaky eyelids can leave you never wanting to wear eye make-up again. Taking some simple steps can lessen the reaction your eyes have to wearing make-up when you have blepharitis.

Refrain from wearing any eye make-up when an actual outbreak occurs. Clean your eye lids twice a day using baby shampoo and wait for the episode to end.

Purchase new eye make-up brushes and applicators because your current ones are probably contaminated. Purchase a brush cleansing solution.

Throw away your current eye make-up because it is probably contaminated as well and purchase new hypoallergenic eye shadow and liner. Almay products are typically hypoallergenic.

Apply your new make-up using your new brush and applicator. Clean the brush and applicator in the cleansing solution when you are finished.

Remove your eye make-up at the end of the day with a hypoallergenic eye make-up remover.
