Smudge Proof Eyeliner: Our Favorite Tips!

Getting your eyeliner just right is a true skill. Once you’re mastered the perfect line, you need the best products and tips to make it last all day.

First, it’s important to apply a base by using an eyelid primer. The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Priming Potion ($24) is perfect because not only does it keep your eyeshadow from creasing, but it works great to keep your eye makeup on and avoid smudges. Just set the primer with a setting powder or skin-colored eyeshadow to ensure its all-day guarantee.

Next, we all match our foundation to our skin type, so why shouldn’t we match our eyeliner? That’s why the next step is to find the right eyeliner for your skin type. Generally, those with oily skin should find a long-wearing or waterproof formula. You might have to try a few to find the right formula for you and your eye shape.

Last, set your eyeliner with a matching shadow and then spray your face with a good makeup setting spray like Lilah B. Aglow Face Mist ($48) and your liner will stay all day!
