The Spring Forward Series provides tips and news for seasonal allergy sufferers to stay clear and beautiful during spring allergy season.
We already covered how to wear mascara and moisturize dry noses this allergy season, but what about wearing eye liner when your eyes are red, watery or itchy? Or eyeliner that won’t flake onto your contact lenses? Facial skin is most sensitive around the eyes, so during any allergy attack or illness I highly recommend NOT wearing any makeup on eyes. Potential bacteria could make your eyes worse or contaminate your makeup.
If you MUST wear eyeliner, here are some great tools to keep you sleek without smudging, running and won’t give the dreaded smeared raccoon eye:
Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof & Tearproof Eyeliner

This waterproof double-sided eyeliner includes a pencil on one end and a beveled smudger on the other end to intensify the look. It’s like a liquid liner in a pencil and won’t smear. The paraben free, mineral oil free, and paraffin free formula is perfect for sensitive skin, allergies and contact lens wearers.

This is my go-to “liquid liner for dummies!” This angled pen glides on moist, then dries in 60 seconds giving you a sleek line all day without smearing, cracking or flaking.
