Thanks for responding rbb. I mean the lower lid. In the past, I could use eyeliner on the lower lid and even inside it (the water line) but when I do now it irritates my eyes and draws attention to the lid drooping.

I do have dry eyes and have seen doctors for years about it but nothing has helped much. I do drink lots of water and have fish oil supplements. My thought was maybe the drooping is making my dry eyes worse and harder to treat.

I too cannot use powder eye shadows, only cream.However, I think finding a mascara and eyeliner that do not irritate my eyes is probably not possible. Even tinted moisturizers irritate my eyes even if I apply it far away from them.
