Health Tip: Be Smart When Applying Makeup

Or risk eye injury

(HealthDayNews) -- The most common injury from applying cosmetics is scratching the eye with a mascara wand, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Eye infections can result if eye scratches go untreated. Such infections can lead to ulcers on the cornea, loss of lashes, or even blindness.

Be smart -- never try to apply mascara while in motion, including as a passenger in a car, bus, train or plane.
