Ever get that 5 o’clock shadow under your eyes? You know, when your eyeliner that was on perfectly in the morning, migrates under your eyes to give you that “I was a raccoon in my past life” look? Well here are a few tips to prevent such dreaded occurrences:
1. Don’t use a kohl based pencil under your eyes. Eye kohl’s are great if you are going for a smudged look, but not so great for staying put. Try an eye pencil with a waterproof base to it. I am in love with Prestige‘s Total Intensity eyeliner.
2. Set with eyeshadow. Try pressing a matching eyeliner over top to lock in the pencil or skip the pencil altogether and just use the eyeshadow instead.
3. Try a waterproof liquid liner such as Makeup Forever‘s Aqua Liner. If you don’t feel comfortable applying liquid liner, use an angled eyeliner brush to pick some of the product up from the applicator and apply.
4. Set the area around the eyeliner with translucent powder. This will create an invisible barrier and prevent the eyeliner from travelling.
