    Default Gah! Sneezing just after you put mascara on!

    No real point to this but it is SOOOOO annoying! No reason to sneeze but as soon as wet mascara is on my lashes I suddenly have to sneeze and then I have black smudges everywhere! Does this happen to everyone else? Why why why???

    OMG yes, it drives me insane!! There's a technique for stifling a sneeze where you press the area between your upper lip and nose, I often try that to stop it and it does work quite often. But of course sometimes I don't quite catch it.

    It often happens to me. I just lie my index fingers under my lower eyelids, underneath the lashes (not sure how clear my description is). Then when I sneeze the wet mascara goes on my fingers, not on my face.

    Thanks for the tips and tricks- Hopefully I will remember to give them a try. So does anyone know is there is some physiological reason this happens or just a coincidence???

    I don't know if it has anything to do with it, but I sneeze every time I pluck my eyebrows. At least two or three times. And also after applying mascara. Weird.

    Well there is a theory that the optical nerve is close to/linked to the nerve that regulates a sneeze response. This is why sometimes we sneeze when we go into bright sunlight, which does happen to me. Maybe it's something to do with that?

    Me too! I sneeze every.single.time I pluck my eyebrows and have always wondered why! I thought I was all alone in this strange phenomena, but glad to know I'm not!

    I also sneeze every time I look at the sun too.
