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???

Gah! Sneezing just after you put mascara on!

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???

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?
