Are you using eye shadow that is a new product for you that may leave a discoloration after removal?
If the whites of your eyes of other areas become yellow, see a doctor about liver problems. ...Read more

My lash line feels bruised and when i actually look under the eyelid, it's very red. Any ideas?

Blepharitis: Most likely this is an inflammation of the lashes (similar to dandruff of the scalp) in which the margins of the lid are red, there are yellowish deposits on the lashes and there is some tenderness and even redness of the eye itself. Your ophthalmologist can help conquer this and also distinguish it from another common lid problem, the demodex parasite — a mite which lives in the lash bases. ...Read more
