Tip for Putting on Mascara

Do NOT separate mascara clumps with a sewing needle.

I have been doing this for as long as I can remember and never had a problem... until this morning. Two or three of my eyelashes were clumping together, so I pulled out my needle to separate them and accidently poked myself in the eye.

This is what I looked like after the doctor dropped orange dye into my eye...

You can see in the picture that the skin under my eye is stained and my make-up is trashed.

Here's the good news:

1) I found out that eyes heal quickly, so the pain should go away after a couple of days.

2) The eye doctor gave me some sample anti-biotic and lubricating eye drops, therefore I'm saving money by not having to buy prescriptions.

3) Dr. Croft made me feel a little bit better by informing me that he sees women in his office about once a week for the very same thing.

OMG DeeAnn I'm laughing WITH you, WITH you. You poor thing. I hope your eye is OK and that orange stain goes away before Thanksgiving!!!

I've done that myself, didn't have to go to the doctor though. I learned the pin/needle trick from Sandie Coleman many moons ago. I still have my needle in my make-up bag and use it when I have too. :-)

Oh wow. Glad you are okay. It makes me a little sick thinking about the needle in the eye thing. Dawes.

Lizbeth- It's okay to laugh. I've been laughing what a moron I am! :)

Have you ever tried a baby toothbrush for opening up eyelashes after mascara application?

U = silly girl! =P
