If you are going to a costume party dressed like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, you need to have the full effect. Jack Sparrow is an eccentric character and his makeup shows this about him, being able to apply your make up correctly can give you the desired effect.
By now you will have your bandana perfectly folded and tied around your head and you will have your make up on, looking all sunburned and dirty. Your dingles, your long beard, will be in place and all you are missing is your eye makeup.
Jack Sparrows eyes are dark and have a smoky look. You will need black eye liner to get this effect. It is easy and quick to apply and you can put it on thick, unlike when you were applying your basic makeup. Eye liner tends to fade, so thick is a good way to prevent this from happening.
Start applying your black eye liner to your eye lid; you need to cover the whole eye lid up to the crease, which is half way between your eye lashes and eye brow.
Layer it on thick, as it needs to be as dark as possible. You will need to ensure that you apply it to the same height on both eyes and the same thickness. So the darker the better, it is easier to judge this way.

Once you have done the eye lids of both eyes, you can move on to below the eye. Here you will need to put one dark line under your eye, make this line as dark as possible.
Then you apply another dark line under that line, this line you will smudge with your finger to give it a smoky effect. You may need to do it a couple of times, applying eye liner and smudging until you get the effect you want on both eyes.
You are almost there, your bandana is in place, you are sunburned and your eyes are dark and smoky.
Are there ever times when you hear the call of the sea, but alas, you must stick to your landlubber ways for lack of a shoulder parrot and magic talisman? Us too. In these cases, the best thing you can do is scowl and quote Pirates of the Caribbean. We went to the highest court of all the land and sea (you guys) to see which lines from our favorite films were tops.
15. “I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly, it’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly stupid.” -Jack Sparrow
This is honestly incredibly profound.
14. “Nobody move! I dropped me brain!” -Jack Sparrow
A typical Monday mood for us.
13. “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?” -Jack Sparrow
Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and see if the problem truly lies within.
12. “You need to find yourself a girl, mate.” -Jack Sparrow
True love conquers all, you guys.
11. “I’ve got a jar of dirt!” -Jack Sparrow
Pretty much all of life’s happiness can be found in a jar of dirt.
10. “Did everyone see that? Because I will not be doing it again.” –Jack Sparrow
Captain Jack is a man of many talents, many of which are completely accidental.
9. “If you were waiting for the opportune moment, that was it.” –Jack Sparrow
Carpe diem, friends.
8. “The code is more what you’d call ‘guidelines’ than actual rules.” -Hector Barbossa
Rules were made to be broken (except when they weren’t. Safety first).
7. “You are without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.” (James Norrington) “But you have heard of me.” -Jack Sparrow
Any publicity is good publicity, right?
6. “You cheated!” (Will Turner) “Pirate.” -Jack Sparrow
We do not condone cheating, but being a pirate is pretty good excuse for most things.
5. “ ’Ello poppet.” -Pintel
If we had to make a list of the top creepiest greetings, this would be on there.
4. “Not all treasure’s silver and gold, mate.” -Jack Sparrow
More wise words from Captain Jack to help us realize what we truly treasure in life.
3. “This is either madness, or brilliance.” (Will Turner) “It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.” –Jack Sparrow
It’s hard to tell if Captain Jack is madly brilliant or brilliantly mad.
2. “I’m disinclined to acquiesce to your request.” -Hector Barbossa & Elizabeth Swann
Probably the classiest and most boss way of saying “no” we’ve ever heard.
1. “Savvy?” -Jack Sparrow
We’re savvy to being savvy. But how savvy are you?
A good amount of these quotes come from banter between Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, which only reaffirms the true treasure that is their friendship.

The new coronavirus behind the pandemic causes a respiratory illness called COVID-19. Its most common symptoms are a fever, coughing, and breathing problems. Rarely, it also can cause an eye infection called conjunctivitis.
Based on data so far, doctors believe that 1%-3% of people with COVID-19 will get conjunctivitis, also called pinkeye. It happens when the virus infects a tissue called conjunctiva, which covers the white part of your eye or the inside of your eyelids. Symptoms include if your eyes are:
If you have conjunctivitis, it doesnвЂ™t necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The more likely causes are the many different viruses, bacteria, chemicals, and allergens that can irritate your eyes.
Many forms of conjunctivitis go away with over-the-counter treatments in about 1-2 weeks.
But if you also have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, ask your doctor what, if anything, you should do. Call before you head to a hospital or a medical center to see if itвЂ™s safe for you to visit and for any instructions for your arrival.
How the Infection Spreads
The new coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2, gets passed on primarily through droplets from a cough or a sneeze. These particles most often enter through your nose or mouth as well as your eyes. ItвЂ™s also possible to catch the virus if you touch a contaminated countertop, doorknob, or other surfaces. But this doesnвЂ™t seem to be the main way the virus spreads.
If you have conjunctivitis from COVID-19, you may infect others with SARS-CoV-2 if you touch your eyes and then touch people or surfaces without washing or disinfecting your hands. Avoid touching your face, especially the mucous membranes in your mouth, nose, and eyes.
Seeing Your Doctor
Earlier in the pandemic, many doctors temporarily closed their offices except for emergency care. Call or go online to find out whether your doctorвЂ™s office is accepting routine visits. You should still contact your doctor if you notice eye symptoms, especially if you have:
- Macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Regular eye injections
- Loss of vision or changes like blank spots or flashes
- Painful or red eyes, headache, nausea, and vomiting
Contact your doctor if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or if youвЂ™ve had contact with people who are sick. Your doctor may suggest a virtual visit over your computer or smartphone.
How to Protect Your Eyes
Like everyone, be sure to wash your hands often and stay home whenever you can. If you go out, keep 6 feet away from others and wear a mask. It also may be a good idea to:
Contact lenses: There is no evidence wearing contactsВ puts you at more risk for COVID-19 than those who wear eyeglasses. But you shouldВ continue to practice safeВ hygiene habits for wearing and caring for them. Washin your hands before putting them in, or taking them out..В
Wear glasses. В Your glassesВ lenses may help protect your eyes from any respiratory droplets. If you donвЂ™t wear glasses, try sunglasses. And if youвЂ™re caring for someone ill, don safety glasses or goggles.
Stock up eye medication. Check with your insurer to see if you can refill glaucoma drops and other essential prescriptions in advance. You might be able to get a 3-month supply. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for any help.
DonвЂ™t rub your eyes. It can be a hard habit to break. Moistening drops may help ease itchiness. Wash your hands for 20 seconds before and after you do it. If you must touch your eyes, use a tissue instead of your fingers.
