Don’t: Keep old make-up just because you spent a lot of money on it, still have product left in the tube or really like the color.
Do: Be sure to toss out your mascara every three months. Old eye make-up breeds bacteria that can not only irritate your eyes, but also cause conjunctivitis or sties. Eyeliner and eye shadow can last from three months to a year, depending on the type. Liquid and cream liners and shadows should be tossed before powders.
There are very few things more irritating than a stray eyelash that’s found its way into your eye. But is it harmful? Should you see your eye doctor?
If it’s just an ordinary, wayward lash, you don’t need to panic. Rushing off to the ophthalmologist for something like this would be like going to the emergency room with a broken nail – it’s something that you should be able to deal with quite easily and effectively all on your own.
You can flush a stray eyelash out on your own using cold water or eye drops. Another method that works is to pull your upper lid down over the lower lid and hold it there for about 30 seconds while at the same time moving your eyeball back and forth, up and down. This will encourage the production of tears that will flush out the offending lash.
Taking pride in your appearance often means finding just the right look for you. The right dress, for example, can highlight our figure, and the right haircut can accentuate our face.

Your eyes are the first thing that most people will notice about you. They are considered, of course, to be the windows to the soul. If your eyes are the windows, it follows that your eyelashes are the curtains, framing and highlighting this very important feature. The best way to bring out your eyelashes, and in turn, your eyes, is to make them as long and full as possible. Read the tips below for how best to achieve this!
Lice infestation is pretty common in schools and all socio-economic areas and we normally think about head lice and lice on our scalp. Did you know that lice on eyelashes is also a possibility? Yes, lice on eyelashes can happen and your eyelashes are just as vulnerable to lice infestation as your scalp.

The good news here is that lice aren’t dangerous but more of an annoyance if anything. The constant itching can be overwhelming for some, which can make it worse.
