Can You Wear Mascara With Pink Eye. If you have any type of eye infection, such as pink eye, it’s important to not use makeup during your infection. Not only does this slow the healing process, but it also cross contaminates your makeup and makeup tools like brushes and eyelash curlers. You may need to throw out any mascara, eyeliner, or shadows used during an infection. You may be able to be seen sooner, but why rush this if you are planning on buying new glasses.

If you have conjunctivitis, you can help limit its spread to other people by following these steps: Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Wash them especially well before and after cleaning, or applying eye drops or ointment to, your infected eye. If you wear contacts, it’s entirely possible for your mascara or eye makeup to get into your contacts and ruin the integrity of the lens. This can possibly cause an infection. Make sure you put your contacts in before applying mascara or eye makeup. Be extra aware of the sterility of your hands and lenses. Fill a clean and empty spray bottle with white vinegar.
