    Use mascara is safe, but share makeup with others may cause many eye diseases, including pink eyes and eye stye. Sometimes, eye stye can be caused by clogged eyelid glands. Your makeup may contain a lot of bacterial if it has been used by other people who get eye disease. So do not share your makeup with other people.

    I should say it is safe to use mascara if you use it correctly. As a girl, I like to use mascara because it can make my eyes look bigger and more attractive. Yet we all know that our eyes are easily to get irritated and infected. If the mascara is irritant to your eyes, your eyes might feel uncomfortable. Wear too heavy mascara might make your eyelashes fall out too. There is still another problem ignored by many girls sometimes. Every day we should remove the mascara tenderly with mild remover especially for eyes. We need to clean it thoroughly because the mascara might cause glands blocked. Once the glands on eyelids got blocked, a stye is resulted. To speed up the recovery process of a stye, you need to apply warm compress on eyes. Clean the root of eyelids and eyelash margins with a cotton bud soaked with salt water.

    A stye can grow on the inside or outside of the lid, which are commonly caused by the blocking of an oil gland at the base of the eyelash. Causes are poor nutrition, sleep deprivation, lack of hygiene, lack of water, and rubbing of the eyes. Symptoms are pain, redness, swelling and tenderness. Mascara is also cause of stue. Mascara can easily lead to infect on eyes. The cosmetic substances are easy to cause chemical reflection. At this time, the best thing you can do is to hold consult with an oculist and take some notes from him/her. And you should pay attention to your personal hygiene. That is, washing your hands before eating anything. Don't rub your eyes with hands, or further infection may occur. Plus, eye stye is really so terrible in that it affects your outlook so much.
