@MsBark:  I don’t know why that could be happening. I’d try a hypoallergenic brand like Neutrogena or Almay and see if it still happens.

It sounds like you are having a reaction to it! probably not an allergy because you would notice right away but certainly a sensativity! I agree and you should try switching to a hypoallergenic makeup

Also… Make up expires…. How old is your product? Most make up products should be replaced anywhere from 3-6 months depending on the product

I have this reaction to Avon eye products! Specifically their mascaras and eyeliners. Just start tearing up which causes me to rub my eyes which causes them to get itchy and run down my face, lol.

Anything else I have ever used (drugstore brand wise) I am fine with. It must just be something extra in the formulation. I would definitely try switching to hypoallergenic makeup wherever possible. Does it happen when you FIRST open a new makeup product too? Or is it usually after using it a few times?

@MsBark:  Yeah, it sounds like an allergy.

Try using hypoallergenic cosmetics!

Read reviews online too. Good luck. 

Hopefully it works out. I love me some makeup.

@MsBark:  I can’t wear anything waterproof on my eyes – with the exception of waterproof Sitla eyeliner.  Everything else makes my eyes crazy crazy itchy and watery (after 4ish hours of wear).

@MsBark:  strange. Try to take note I guess if you buy something new and wear it by itself without other products for a half day and see what happens. I remember also that it was more ‘waterproof’ products then the non-waterproof ones that would irritate my eyes.

@MsBark:  Definitely sounds like it could be an allergy but maybe not to the makeup?

You mentioned you noticed an increase in problems when you started your new job.I had this problem 2 years ago when I was working in a retail environment (severly dusty form the carpetting, clothes..). It was around this time that I found out I had a severe allery to dust mites (amongts other things) and would get styes within hours of my shift. Maybe the eye makeup is trapping dirt and dust near your eyes and causing a reaction?

Also if you have oily skin then eyelids get oily as well and the eye makeup gets runny causing irritation. Primer and waterproof makeup would be a good way to go there.

@MsBark:  Try the target brand. It seems very gentle

I have sensitive eyes, and the same thing happens to me. It’s always fine at first, but I think as the day goes on, sometimes I rub my eyes or bits of eye shadow dust gets in my eyes and it become irritating. Now I use a setting spray so my makeup stays put, and only use mineral makeup and I find it helps a lot.
