Yes: We have more than a few patients allergic to cosmetics. Eye shadow is a less common but real complaint. Try switching to a hypo allergenic brand and don't forget about other cosmetics such as makeup removers, soaps and lotions.

Eye shadow: It's rare to be allergic to eye shadow, as it's usually made from tiny metal particles. I'd try different brands. Some of my patients like clinique.

Hydroquinone cream: Try hydroquinone cream. Rub in a small amount 2 times each day. You can find a 2% hydroquinone cream over the counter in most pharmacies. Natural liquorice extract is another treatment that works but is usually not as effective.
