Eyeliner mishaps

Hey peoples, did you know that pencil eyeliner ingredients often include petroleum-based waxes and oils, silicones and gums to stick the eyeliner to the eyelids? These chemicals migrate to the eye itself via blinking, sweating and the natural secretion of body oils and tears – and, the older the makeup, the more bacteria is found in it. In the latest study of people applying eyeliner inside the lash line, scientists found that within five minutes, up to 30% more unnatural particles moved into the tear film of the eye versus applying it outside of the lash line. It grows even worse if the subject wears contact lenses because this forms a residual build-up on the contact lens itself; causing vision disruption as the lens becomes cloudier (accompanied also with a greater residue of unfriendly bacteria). People using eyeliner, and especially people who apply it to the inner eyelid, run a much higher risk of contaminating the eye and causing eye dominance problems, hyperopia, mycosis, bacterial infections and sometimes permanent vision trouble or blindness.
