What's the best eye primer for SUPER oily eyelids?
(0) Hearts

I've tried several different kinds, including the Urban Decay primers, but nothing has worked. After 30 minutes to an hour, my eyeshadow and liner melts off into my crease. I'll spend so much time getting the perfect eye makeup, only to have it look horrible by the time I walk out the door.

I use BareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer (original formula)and it gets me through the day without creasing. I've tried Urban Decay primer potion, Nars Smudge Proof and Too Faced Shadow Insurance and they gave out long before I was ready to take off my makeup. The BareMinerals primer seems to have a drier finish to it.


One thing that really helped as well is to put on eye primer right after I wash my face when I'm putting on moisturizer and eye cream only under the eye. If I wait a while and put primer over slightly (or more depending how long I've waited) oily lids it never works as well. 


Hope that helps.
