    Mascara. It comes off easily with moisture. They're trying to dry their tears so they don't look like a raccoon!

    When you fan your eyes it dries them out which makes you cry. So I'm guessing they just want to force tears out of their eyes to overreact.

    They don't want to wipe their make up off and it's another technique of trying to dry up the tears.

    because they don't want to wipe their eyes of have tears running down their face, both would ruin makeup. plus, its a learned behaivor.
