Yesterday you got tips on how to get a nice eyeliner wing with the help of tape in the post Beauty hack - sharp eyelinervinge, did you find it helpful? :)
But one of the most boring things there is when you get a really nice eyeliner, so there you feel proud as the rooster and just want to flirt with people all day, and then after just a few hours it gets smeared on the eyelid and gets ruined …
Here's another eyeliner trick, and this is how you make it last better! :)
The most important thing to get an eyeliner that lasts well is of course a good product, I almost always use waterproof eyeliner, or at least a rub-proof one. The eyeliner in the picture is Paese Penliner. But even if you have a waterproof and rub-proof eyeliner, it can still smudge on the eyelid when you blink during the day. What can be done about it?
The answer is not a more expensive or better eyeliner, but the solution is an eyeshadow primer!
If you apply foundation as usual and do not want any eye shadow, very few people use eye shadow primer. Because it is for eye shadows. But the biggest reason why the eyeshadows hold better with primer is because the eyelid becomes very oily during the day, and when you blink then all the eyeshadow will eventually settle like two dashes over the eyelid. But it helps the primer against, and works partly as an adhesive for eye shadows but also keeps the eyelid dull during the day.
This also happens without eye shadows, only that it is not as clear as it is only the foundation that is skin-colored that settles in the crease. As you can see in the picture above.
And it is all this oil that makes the eyeliner smudge, because even if an eyeliner is waterproof, it is not oilproof. Oil dissolves waterproof products, and causes them to discolour or even smudge completely.
Apply eye shadow primer to the entire eyelid.
I use Pixi Eye Bright Primer
3. Paint your eyeliner as usual, and then it will be kept in place all day without smudging or staining on the eyelids!
This tip applies even if you have a mascara that easily smears on the eyelids :)
