Read on to know these tricks to apply smudge free eyeliner
Eyeliner is to be applied over the edges of the eyelids and not meant for smudging. Smudged eyeliner is only allowed in case of a Gothic black makeup or for those Halloween theme party. Other than that, smudged eyeliner looks bad and depicts poor makeup skills in front of others. For this purpose follow these basic tips to save your eyeliner from smudging.
Keep it branded
It is a must to look out for a good brand of cosmetics and pick eyeliner from them. Cheap eyeliners are poor in pigmentation and staying power which are more prone to get easily smudged. So, double check the brand and after reading positive reviews only, go for it.
Choose the right form of eyeliner
There are different formulations of eyeliner available these days which are suitable for different skin types. There are gel, liquid, cakes, pencil eyeliners available in stores, so one should choose the correct formulation as per their skin type.
Apply an eye primer
It is very essential to apply an eye primer on your eyes so that the eyeliner you are applying stays for a long time as the primer keeps the skin well moisturized and also keeps eye makeup in place which prevents smudging.
Apply concealer under the eyes
Another tip to keep your eyeliner in place is to apply concealer under the eyes so that there is no way your eyeliner is going to smudge unless it is done deliberately.
Dab some powder
It is another great tip to prevent eyeliner from smudging by dabbing some loose powder after applying eyeliner as it will absorb the excess oil in that area which may cause the eyeliner to smudge. You may opt for pressed or loose powder as per your choice.
In case you don’t have any of these powders, it is better to dab a little baby powder and dust off the excess powder with the help of a makeup brush.
Apply double layer of eyeliner
It is also a great tip of applying smudge free eyeliner by applying a single layer of eyeliner and let it dry completely and then re-apply it again after a while. Single layer of eyeliner is more prone to get easily smudged so it is better to double it up.
Setting up the eyeliner
Another tip is to set the eyeliner by using an eye shadow of the same shade as the eyeliner, with the help of a thin eyeliner brush. If you wish to make your eyeliner look dramatic, then wet the brush and apply the eye shadow and set the eyeliner.
Use waterproof Eyeliner
If you have very less time for makeup but still want to have a long staying eyeliner then it is better you opt for a waterproof eyeliner so that the oil or sweat doesn’t makes your eyeliner runny.
Keep oil-blotting sheets handy
Always keep oil-blotting sheets in your purse so that if you notice any trace of sweat or shine over the eyes, immediately blot it with the help of oil blotting sheets available in the stores.
Well, this is all I have learned about keeping the eyeliner smudge free for long durations…Hope you like these tips
