purple eyeliner allergy

 I have found that I am now allergic to purple eyeliner and possibly shadow because of the dye used I believe. I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem and found a brand that does not make them re-act like you have pink eye. My eyes are hazel and purple makes em pop so nice, I am desperate to find a brand that doesnt use the common red dye that is causing this reaction! Any info would be great!

Hi Nighttravyn,


If you believe it's the purple colour try making your own purple by blending and mixing a pink-ish shadow with blue shadows.  If you blend them or layer the pigments you should be able to get a purple shadow look.  Also, use an eyeshadow base to hold the shadow in place and put less shadow on your brush building the colour on your eye so that it doesn't fall in and irritate your eyes.   Last idea is for you to let your eyes have a break and try gold shadows with your hazel eyes and deep greens Smiley Wink
