1.Do not tug the eye area. The skin surrounding your eye area is very delicate. In fact, you could compare it to tissue paper. This is why you will see so many eye creams, and serums out there to help condition the under eye and lip area. That skin does not produce oil, there fore, it more likely to wrinkle. So make sure you never tug on your eye area.


2.Do not share eye makeup. When you use mascara and eye makeup, you are introducing your own bacteria to it. You’re body is able to handle this bacteria, because it is your own. However when you introduce new bacteria into it, your chances for eye infections increase dramatically. Never, never share your eye makeup!

  3.Do not let your make up bag get dirty Make sure that every so often, you go through your makeup bag, and clean your mascara, primer, eyelash curlier and eye lash separater and really all of your makeup. Take a clorax wipe and wipe everything down, let it dry, make sure that your make up bag is clean and place back. It should take you no longer than 5 minutes. Makeup is likely something you wear everyday on your skin and eyes, therefore, the bacteria increases and could cause you to break out or have an eye infection. The point is to not go crazy on this, but to just keep it clean.
