How do you disguise dark marks (a result of HRT used when I was going through the menopause)

I have one eye bigger than the other and because of eye drops in one the lashes in that one are lovely but sparse in the smaller one. How can I even them up and is there a non allergic mascara please.

Why is the minimum spend on her products £50? I would buy the products but can't afford the minimum spend everytime. sad

Contact lens wearer with eyes that seem more sensitive as I age! Need a mascara that looks natural (I just want colour as my eyelashes are fair) and doesn't shed 'bits'. I did like a Clinique one but I think they've changed the formulation as it now seems to 'shed' as well ...

I am super-allergic to make-up and can't tolerate most brands of mascara, eye shadow and liner. I would look much better if I could find products that suit me, any suggestions?

Many thanks!

What do you do if you have really very little eyebrow hairs at all left ( I never plucked!). I have tried all sorts of powders, crayons, liquid ( including LFF which is too dark for me) etc. but nothing looks natural. I am far too scared to try having them tattooed on.

Am I doomed to look permanently surprised?

I have tried many foundations and cant find one to suit, my skin must have changed drastically as I never seemed to have any problems when I was younger. Have you any advice on what to consider when choosing a foundation?
Thank you

I find it hard to choose the correct colour for my foundation. I do know that anything with a yellow base makes me look sallow and it suits me to have a pink base.

Also are primers worth trying please ?

I would love to use a liquid eyeliner but I can`t get the line straight or thin , any tips ?

My query relates to summer holiday makeup! What do you suggest for skin cover i.e. foundation/make up for everyday and daytime wear on holiday?

I don't tend to sunbathe any more these days [ usual concerns about skin damage, burning and skin cancer etc etc] but it would be helpful to know how to look ok
during the day! Evenings not a problem, as do the full caboodle then!!

Many thanks
