Hello everyone ! !
As I always have to use eye lubricants in the day, as well as before bed, I always have an oily residue under my eye from using Lacrilube or Xailin gel. This therefore ruins my eye makeup when I do decide to apply on special occasions.
Because of this I decided I wanted to find waterproof eye makeup catered towards sensitive/dry eyes. I also wanted to find waterproof products for summer holidays as a lot of people have messaged and requested for this.
Below I will share the waterproof products I tried and the outcome of each along with a makeup tutorial video. I came across Eye Care Cosmetics randomly online when I was ordering my eye drops from Butterflies website. I noticed Butterflies Eyecare had cosmetics on their website aimed for sensitive/dry eyes.
IMPORTANT: I never apply makeup on my lash line, inside my lash line or the roots of my lashes as that is where my irritation occurs. Ensure you take your own irritation into account as everyone is different and have their own unique symptoms.
Makeup Tutorial Video
To avoid irritation: On my eye lid, you will notice that I leave a line (just above my lash-line) where I have not applied any makeup. E.g. so where you normally apply eyeliner, I leave it makeup free and you can see my skin ever so slightly. If I close my eyes on the tutorial you will be able to see this. Once applying mascara you can’t tell so much. I never apply eye shadow directly on the edge or on my lash line any more since having dry eyes. This is to avoid irritation.
Concealer. (Applied small amount with fingertip above lash line & with brush undereye)
This concealer is great for a base before eye shadows as well as good for covering sports etc like a normal concealer. I used this before applying the eye shadow pencil and it helped it stay in place.
Waterproof Mascara. (Applied on the ends of my lashes after using an eyelash curler.)
I found this to be quite tolerable as I never apply mascara on the roots of my lashes anymore. It also made my lashes look great! I was able to apply my Lacrilube eye gel without it effecting my lashes too as it is waterproof. It was surprisingly easy to remove which I was very happy with.
Waterproof Eye Shadow Pencil. (Applied above lash line and under the eye – but not inside the eyelid line!)
Colour: Spice & Plum
I absolutely love this eye shadow pencil. I am so happy to have found alternative makeup products to powder eye shadows in cream shadow sticks. This did not irritate my eyes at all and stayed in place even with my eye gels which I was super happy about. Can’t wait to use this on holiday!
Waterproof Eye Brow Pencil.
I love this eyebrow pencil and the look it gives. I had a very similar one from MAC but this one is much bigger and it is even cheaper than the MAC eyebrow pencil so you get more for your money! It is also waterproof which means it wont budge. I am forever touching my face and eyebrows…
