I am searching for alternatives to globs of lengthening and thickening mascara or temporary false eyelashes?.

I continuously get an eye infection that often resembles "pink eye" in only 1 of my eyes-never the other one, despite cross contamination. I have gone to an eye doctor but as I did not have a so called "flare-up" at the time of the examination, he said he couldn't tell me what the cause was or provide treatment and basically told me that all looks good. LOL. Anyway, every single time I put mascara on, that eye begins to show signs of infection. I have thrown out far too many brand new tubes of various brands of mascaras after just 1 use and need an alternative until I find a competent Ophthalmologist. I have used pharmacy false eye lashes a few times but truth be told, rarely can I attach them properly and securely, but the few times I have or a friend has done for me, THEY MAKE MY EYES LOOK AMAZING! So I began my search for semi-permanent or permanent false eye lashes...and here you were. I have tried: Drug store false eye lashes and mascara - for lengthening and thickening. Eye wash solution, prescription eye drops designed for "pink eye" and Chamomile tea bags for relief of infection.. I think it was caused by: Caused??? I have no idea. Aggravated? I don't wash hands often enough/hygiene and upon the first signs of itching or mucus on that eye - I begin to use my fingers to pick it out.

You can go to a Beautician, and have your eyelashes tinted. It makes them darker, so they look longer, but doesn't necessarily make them look thicker. This process isn't at all expensive, and lasts for about six weeks. Then, there's no need to use mascara at all. When you eye flares - thinking maybe it's an allergy to a cat or dog - yes, only one eye - use eye drops that don't contain sulphites, Bausch & Lomband is an excellent choice. In the meantime, use ice in a washcloth, as they probably get a bit swollen...and keep your fingers away from your eyes.
