I truly believe that my eye makeup stays put better than ever now that I have replaced my cremes with powder concealer & correctors.
5. For extra insurance, dust your mineral powder foundation on your lids.
In fact, dust extra under your eye area as well.
By powdering around your eyes, ever so lightly, any product that falls while marking up your eyes, will get caught in the powder, making it easier to wipe away.
Sweep excess powder away again when you are all done, with a big powder brush.
Are You Picking Up On A Theme Here?
Tip: Pay attention to the way your skin folds in your eye area.......does your crease touch your lash line? Is that the problem?
When you do smudge, where exactly is it happening on your eyes?
That specific area is where you need to alter your makeup technique.
Begin Applying Your Shadow: Use a soft eye pencil for lining around your eyes. Again, this may seem contrary to what would make sense when attempting to avoid smudging, but you want a soft pencil that does not pull on your tender eye skin, as well as a pencil that stays put. A hard eye pencil can tug and pull too much and cause long term damage.
Next, dip a fine brush into a matching or coordinating loose mineral powder shadow (tap off excess) and line right smack on top of the pencil liner. This combination of creme (pencil) and powder is stay-put magic.
Finish Off With Mascara Apply mascara on top of powdered lashes and blink on to a tissue to wipe off any excess mascara that could end up falling and becoming a smudge.
