Pink Eye Makeup Purge
Hi everyone! First off, thanks so much for the get well wishes! I can see many of you have dealt with the very same thing and you have so much great advice. Thanks also to my friend Linda for her email full of great sanitation advice. A big reason why I'm blogging about the details of my pink eye (including all the symptoms shared in my last post)- is not to gross people out, but to give you a heads up should you ever encounter pink eye. The sooner you can figure out that you have it and see a doctor, the better. I remember thinking when I had super watery, oozy eyes on the first day-- well, I doubt it's pink eye... my eyes aren't even pink! But that came later.
Also... pink eye has a big effect on your makeup supply! I'm throwing out a number of makeup items that have come in contact with my eyes over the past 10 days or so. This includes a lot of much-loved items, but I know it's for the best! I also forgot to snap pics of a couple of shadow primers with wand applicators that I swept over my eyelids- including NYX HD Eyeshadow primer & Urban Decay Primer Potion. I've been told to wipe down my powder shadow products and also sanitize my brushes.
Eyeliners... including pencils, liquid liner pens, and some light-colored liners I use in my waterline. I love the Mally & Physician's Formula pencils, as well as the Cover Girl Line Blast 24 hr. liquid pen.
Mascaras... losing lots of favorites here, including L'oreal Double Extend Carbon Black, Almay Get Up & Grow, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes, Maybelline Lash Discovery, and Mally Volumizing Mascara. Fortunately, it was about time to throw out several of these anyway. But Milani Runway Lashes was new, and I was enjoying that one!
I'm hoping the redness keeps decreasing throughout the day today... I really want to get back to my normal routine!! Thanks again for all the help! :)
