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 Nightravyn.  If you are allergic to red dye, a few ingredients to avoid are Carmine, Crimson Lake, Cochineal, Natural Red #40, C.I. 75470 and E120.  I agree with 6aad0801. Golds and deep greens look fantastic on hazel eyes!  As a precaution,  I still recommend checking the ingredients as, although red dye is more common is cool-toned makeup, other colors may contain the red dye as well.
