Today I'm talking about an issue that I'm sure has affected each of us during our makeup wearing lives; the dreaded eyeliner running...or the eyeshadow that smudges. I mean don't you just hate it when you've done your makeup and you step out of your house and your faced with a gush of wind and you start tearing up and before you know it, your eyeliner is halfway down your cheek? It is just so annoying. Now I know that waterproof makeup is available, but I do find that it can be a pain to take off at times. So I thought I would put together some tips which may help prevent us from looking like Beyonce in the picture below.
1. Pressed Powder
Once you put your eyeliner on, apply a pressed powder using a flat headed eyeshadow brush up to the edge of your under eye lashline/eyeliner and the powder should absorb the excess moisture and oil.
2. Cutton Bud / Q-Tip
Prior to applying your eyeliner, make sure your waterline is relatively dry. I use a cutton bud (q-tip) to dry it first.
Using a primer prior to applying your eyeshadow. That way the eyeshadow has a further layer to cling to.
4. Double Up
I sometimes find that once I've finished putting my eyeliner on my lower lashline, I double up with an eyeshadow of the same colour. That way I find it sets and doesn't move.
5. Makeup Setting Spray
Using one of these could help set your makeup for the day. There are a number of them available.
If you've tried everything above and it still doesn't work, then you may have to stick to waterproof makeup.
What do you do to prevent your eye makeup from running?
