One of the most talked about issues with eye makeup is how to keep it all in place.
Since eye makeup is something most women apply every single day, it’s a hot topic for ladies everywhere who are trying to put it on and keep it on.
While sometimes day to day activity can get the best of us, there are a few things you can do to always make sure your eye makeup stays intact, even if you feel like nothing seems to be going your way.
Here are our 5 tips that will keep your eye makeup from smudging, so you can worry about the more important stuff:
If you don’t already know, one of the most important things you should be doing on a daily basis is cleansing your skin.
You must wash all eye makeup off before going to sleep so that nothing is left over in the morning.
When you start with clean skin, you set yourself up for an easy application and layering of products.
Use gentle eye makeup removers to get everything off, and make it a consistent habit.
Oily eyelids are common among women and can be the death of freshly applied eyeshadow it not primed first beforehand.
Even if you don’t have oily lids primer is still a great product to use before shadow.
Applying primer will give you a great base for eyeshadow that doesn’t crease or smudge and helps create an all day lasting effect.
A small amount of primer goes a long way and depending on what look you’re going for.
You can use clear primer or pigmented ones to add a colour boost.
Make sure that you use formulas in both eyeshadows and eyeliners that are long wearing.
For instance, if you tend to have watery eyes make sure you opt for a waterproof eyeliner instead of non-waterproof.
If you’re going to line underneath the eyes, apply liner to inner rim and below and then blend with a brush to smooth it out.
You can apply eyeshadow on top of the liner to make it softer or smokier, depending on intensity and tone of eyeshadow that you choose.
Mascara is something you should wear daily, but make sure when applying it to the bottom lashes to not go too heavy with it.
When applying to top lashes feel free to go for as many coats as you desire (2-3 is a great standard range)
When applying to bottom lashes, a small amount right on the tips is perfect for just the right amount of definition.
To make sure everything stays in place, set it with a makeup setting spray by spraying a few mists to closed eyes and the rest of the face.
