: : My eyes will often, not every day, be itchy and cause me to blink frequently. My eyes bother me about fifty percent of the time. I thought it was my eye make-up that could be causing this but it doesn't happen all of the time. I have also tried switching different kinds of make-up and it does not seem to matter. Although when I don't have make-up on,my eyes do not seem to bother me. I am not willing to give up make-up, I have always worn eye make-up. Does anyone have any suggestions other than not wearing make-up?
: Try getting all new makeup. I have heard that mascara can become infected with bacteria and everytime you apply it you reinfect your eyes. So if you start out with all new 'everything' when you eyes are not itchy, you might be ok.
Sondra: Sounds like you have Dry Eyes. Go see a good eye doctor and let him treat it before you really have problems. Chances are its not your makeup.
