Eye make-up and cosmetics can enhance your appearance. Adding a mascara, eye liner, and eye shadow is easy. However, this cosmetic enhancement could end up being harmful to the eyes if applied carelessly.
Issues can range from allergic reactions, to eye infections, to serious injuries.
The most serious eye issues caused by make-up application could involve injury to the cornea, which is the front part of the eye's surface. Corneal injuries usually cause pain and always necessitate quick medical attention.
