    In my opinion, we should know what blepharitis is. Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids causing red, irritated, itchy eyelids and the formation of dandruff-like scales on eyelashes. The real reason of blepharitis has not been confirmed by now. As far as i can see, Seborrheic dermatitis, a bacterial infection, Rosacea, Allergies, Eyelash mites or lice can be consisted in the reasons of blepharitis. Makeup can be an allergic reaction to the eyelid and cause blepharitis. However, you don't need to worry about it for it's not permanent. There are some treatment options for blepharitis, keeping the eyes clean, using antibiotic creams and steroid eye drops. In so doing, the blepharitis will disappear gradually. Therefore, don't worry about it. It's ok, baby!

    Not exactly. Poor quality of cosmetics are harmful to your skin, especially the skin around your eyes. Because make up is easy to make a pile of lipid under eyes. And poor quality of cosmetics will cause eye infection if you let them get into your eyes by accident. However, high quality of cosmetics can reduce this ratio. Warm tips: do not make up frequently, or it will let your skin become bad soon.

    Yes, it's true. As an infection of the eyelid, Blepharitis can occur as the result of a bacterial infection. Eye makeup, especially liquid products like mascara, can harbor blepharitis-causing bacteria. If staphylococcus bacteria, the blepharitis-causing bacteria, contaminate a cosmetic product, the bacteria may transfer to the eyes and lead to blepharitis. The symptom of blepharitis often includes light sensitivity like: blurred vision, eye discharge, pain and redness of the eye. What's worse, if the bacteria enter the meiobian glands, recurrent conjunctivitis can be occur. So discard your makeup or you may stop using eye makeup every few days.
