See,
Hi and welcome!


I'm sorry about your eye problem. The first thing of course is to get adequate treatment for the Graves. Here is a book that addresses thyroid ophthamology that might be a little helpful:

Living well with Graves' disease and ... - Google Books

I can understand that eye makeup, which usually helps to define the eyes, might not work for you. If lid retraction is a problem, it may be better not to draw attention to the eyes at all, since they already are prominent, and highlight your cheeks or lips instead. Sorry I'm not more helpful to you. If you could post a pic of your eyes maybe someone could weigh in with some suggs.
