Shirley Potter from Adelaide caused mascara to the lashes before going out in public with their daughters. The next morning the husband told her that her eyes are red and inflamed. According to the woman, shortly in both eyes she had severe burning, despite the fact that from birth she saw nothing and felt left eye.
Within a few months after a bad makeover, she continued to experience discomfort. Once on reception to the ophthalmologist, the woman learned that she had a serious eye infection which can, in particular, appear due to the use of expired cosmetics.
