This may sound shallow… but I will ask anyway. I cannot possibly be the only person with Keratoconus that feels guilty about using eye make-up. Am I?
A 15-year-old reader of my blog wrote to me and asked me what do I do about make-up, so I am writing to share my story. As I get more confident about myself and my scars, I am trying to ditch the habit but I am sharing so we can talk about it.
In the past, I wore a ton of eyeliner and mascara . I went through almost every brand sold in the United States until I found one that didn’t flake and land inside my contacts, and didn’t burn if my eyes got watery. I finally found my match and piled it on my waterline and lashes daily for several years and didn’t feel a tad bit of guilt about it.
