    Yes, sleeping with makeup can cause pink. Pink eye is caused by different reasons. One reason is the eye irritation and this kind of irritation can come from many aspects such as makeup. Makeup contains amount of harmful chemical. When you don't remove the makeup and go to sleep, the harmful chemical may run into your eyes and cause your eyes infection. What's more, go to sleep with makeup can do great harm to your skin as well. It make accelerate the rate of aging progress of your skin. So I advise you not to wear makeup to sleep. Before you sleep, you should remove makeup careful until you make sure your eye and your face are clean.

    Yes , it is quite true that sleeping without removing the eye makeup could lead to some problems such as red and pink eyes, even retinal infection. Because the substance in the makeup is quite irritative to your eyes and your eyes are quite vulnerable to such things. So, you had better clean up your face before go to sleep. My advice for you is to wash your eyes with hot water and get some eye drops to treat your eyes.

    Well, of course, it can be possible to have pink eyes if you sleep with makeup. As we know that makeup are some kinds of chemicals which can lead to irritants in some degree. So if you sleep with them, it can make your eyes infected. So just be careful about it. And before you go to bed, you should clean your face and your eyes carefully, so that it can be good. Also, you should know that sleeping with makeup can also lead to dry eyes. As we know that if you do not have the necessary balance of these three layers in your eyes, or if your eyes do not make enough tears to coat the eye, you may have a condition, which is known as dry eye.
