Eye MakeUp and wrinkles

Hi, has anyone here experienced any skin problems from wearing large amounts of eye makeup? I wear lots of mascara and eye shadow because I have crossed eyes and it is very obvious. My left eye turns in when I look straight ahead. I think the makeup I wear around my eyes makes it less obvious and I feel less self-concious. My friend keeps telling me that it will cause me to get wrinkles and ruin the skin around my eyes. I don't like wearing all this makeup but I hate the way my eyes look and I don't know what else to do. But I don't want to look old at a young age either, I'm only 21. What should I do?

Re: Eye MakeUp and wrinkles

I have never heard of makeup itself being the cause of wrinkles--however, I have read that process of taking it off can contribute to wrinkles as the skin around the eye is much more delicate than skin on the rest of the face. Therefore, it is more easily damaged from tugging and pulling that is associated with makeup removal. You might want to switch to a dry mineral makeup, like Bare Escentuals. Mineral makeup is more natural and less damaging to skin health. I have been wearing it for a couple of years, and the improvement in my skin is substantial.
